Spine-conditions-treated-with-decompression

Spinal decompression is one of the newer technological advancements favorable in the realm of chiropractic and rehabilitation for a variety of conditions. Decompression is a non-invasive treatment approach that is most significant because its positive outcomes have deterred patients from having to undergo surgery. The Hill DT table and system used at Adkore, has a 91% success rate and several patients have invested in and experienced this success already.

Here are the top 3 spine conditions treated with decompression

1. Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is one of the most common conditions as a direct result of aging of the spine, usually stemming from long-term osteoarthritis. The condition affects an average of about 10% of Americans, according the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. When the spinal canal is narrowed by this condition it tends to pinch nerves in the lower back causing radiating pain and the inability to walk properly.

Spinal decompression is a non-traditional approach to spinal stenosis and is rather broad in indications. Decompression therapy works by stretching and relaxing the spine in a controlled, intermittent way to relieve the associated pain. With stenosis, the narrowing causes pressure on the nerves that creates the pain caused by the pinching. This therapy decompresses that area and over time works to restore fluidity and disc cushion space which is usually compromised with spinal stenosis and contributes to the pain.

2. Chronic Back Pain – Disc Related Pain

Chronic back pain is the most frequently reported and treated area in the realm of rehabilitation and chiropractic. Back pain becomes chronic once it is ongoing or recurring for 12 weeks or longer. This condition can be caused by numerous ways including but not limited to trauma, aging, and herniated or bulging discs. As many know, back pain from any source can be quite debilitating and if it goes untreated or masked for too long, it may run the risk of needing surgery.

Spinal decompression is the alternative to surgery in this case as long as the condition was medically tended to earlier than later and there are no other contraindications. For general back pain, this therapy reduces pain and the potential of it being referred to other areas or radiating in the lower extremities such as the buttocks and legs.  When it comes to disc-related back pain, spinal decompression alleviates the pain by relieving pressure with the stretching of the spine and creating an optimal healing environment for herniated, bulging, or degenerating discs.

3. Sciatica

In the event that back pain becomes radiating pain down the leg(s) and buttocks, it may be an indication of sciatica. The sciatic nerve is affected when it is pinched usually in the lower back/sacral area. The sciatic nerve is the single largest nerve running from the low back through the bottom of the leg hence the symptoms experienced. Spinal decompression has been found to be highly beneficial because as mentioned with the other conditions above, it relieves pressure of pinched nerves by stretching the spine. It will also create a lower pressure in the disc that causes an influx of healing nutrients back into the disc. Over a series of sessions, the spine will experience structural changes that re-enable function and mobility in the affected area.


Spinal decompression therapy can be a highly effective treatment for those who suffer from these 3 spine conditions. It can help you get back on your feet without the need for invasive surgeries or more extensive treatment. Spinal decompression is a great option to consider, as it can also be combined with other necessary rehabilitative treatments for your spine condition helping you heal more effectively.
