Spinal Decompression Therapy for Chicago, IL
The goal of our Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is to treat back pain, leg pain, and/or neck pain in Chicago without opting for surgical treatment. It addresses issues like diseased, bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs in the spinal cord. Therapists utilize a vacuum effect to help reduce the size of the disc herniation by taking pressure off of the involved nerve roots. The therapy itself is not painful, rather, it should feel like a stretching taking place in the spine.
How It Works
The process is very well-researched and well-documented. Our trained professionals will guide you throughout each session to get you back to your desired quality of life by reducing intradiscal pressure, widening the spinal canal foraminal area, reducing pressure on spinal nerves, and returning motion to spinal joints.
Depending on the office you schedule your appointment with, you will have the opportunity to partake in two different spinal decompression techniques. At our office in the Loop, therapy sessions typically use a computerized table that is able to manipulate your spine in a safe and effective manner. This table is operated by our therapists and will relieve pressure on your compressed discs.
The more common technique that can be found at each of our offices is the Flexion-Decompression technique. This method is manually performed by a therapist on a segmented table that moves as they manipulate your spine in a slow manner. Both treatments are effective and can relieve the pain you are experiencing by stretching your spine.

Who Should Avoid This Therapy?
Spine-related injuries should be approached with caution. If you are pregnant, have a broken vertebra, have had spinal fusion, or have an artificial disc or other spinal implants, you are not a good candidate for this type of therapy. Also, avoid this if you have had a failed back surgery or endured multiple surgeries without fully recovering.
If you have any of the following conditions, avoid this type of therapy as well: osteoporosis, osteopenia, spinal stenosis, spinal infection, spondylolisthesis, spinal tumor, ankylosing spondylitis, or any condition that may compromise your spine’s integrity or require you to take blood thinner medication.
