Spinal Decompression Chicago

Spinal Decompression Chicago

The goal of our Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is to treat back pain, leg pain and/or neck pain in Chicago without opting for surgery. 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.

Spinal Decompression Chicago

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.

During therapy, you will be lying either face-up or face-down on a computerized table depending on your specific needs. Your therapist will fit one harness around your pelvis and another one around your trunk. Then, your therapist will operate the computer accordingly, so the table moves and stretches your spine in a certain way. Through this process, the compressed discs that put painful pressure on nerves are alleviated through lifted pressure.

Good Candidates for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

This type of therapy can treat a wide variety of ailments and can be helpful for a wide variety of ages. If you are experiencing lower back pain, leg pain (sciatica) or neck pain in Chicago due to a herniated, bulging or degenerated disc, contact us today to see if you would be a good candidate.

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.

"… Felt right for the first time in 12 years"

My back and groin pull were very bad. I saw the team trainers/docs and many outside docs. It affected my skating. I thought my career might be over. Then I saw Dr. Clendenin and his team at the Chicago Chiropractic & Sports Injury Centers. My back and groin have felt right for the first time in twelve years and my stride is so much better.

"Dr. Clendenin and his team fixed me…"

My Iron Man pitching record was at risk and my trainers were unable to fix the problem. Dr. Clendenin and his team fixed me right away, my record continued and I pitched a winner against the Sox. Thanks to the great team at the Chicago Chiropractic & Sports Injury Centers.
