Spinal Decompression

The Tools You Need

Carswell Chiropractic and Athletic Performance Center offers the latest technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic neck pain, lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality chiropractic and physical therapy care resulted in the addition of Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:

  • Disc herniations

  • Disc bulges

  • Facet Syndrome

  • Sciatica

  • Arthritis

Patients who seek medical care from their primary care physician or ER is given muscle relaxants and pain medication to treat disc herniations.  A combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy and spinal decompression has been proven very helpful in pain management and reduction of disc herniations, bulges and sciatica. 

Spinal decompression not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

Spinal Decompression uses a patented FDA-cleared therapy traction device that uses a computer to traction the spinal disc at a specific angle and tension. This enables the doctor to gently, safely and precisely put tension on the neck and lower back to create a negative pressure inside the disc. This negative pressure creates a vacuum effect that draws the bulging or “slipped” material back into the center of the disc. Each treatment lasts about 15 minutes and is generally painless.  Most patients find it relaxing and often fall asleep during treatment. The negative pressure created by the traction also draws fluid and nutrients into the disc, helping it rehydrate and heal.  Rehydrating the disc will help decrease your pain and allow you to function again.
