What is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression?

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized spinal traction that is used to reduce the pressure on the spinal discs. This is done by gently stretching the spine for a period of approximately 10 minutes per treatment, over a period of several weeks, depending on the patient’s condition. The goals of relieving pressure on the spinal discs during decompression include:

  • Potentially relieving back pain without spinal surgery.
  • Reducing pressure on the discs so that water and nutrients can surround the discs, making it easier for the discs to heal.

In some cases, Dr. Hoganson may recommend combining spinal decompression with manual therapy, and/or cold laser therapy which can increase blood flow and promote faster healing. At-home exercises may also be recommended.
