Spinal Decompression Treatment in Boston, MA

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

It is a gentle, non-surgical procedure that uses distraction or pulling forces to create space between the vertebrae, allowing oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids to flow freely in the discs and reduce pressure on the nerve roots and spinal cord.  This therapy can help relieve pain, improve mobility, and prevent further injury or damage.

How Long Does Spinal Decompression Treatment Take?

It typically requires treatments, depending on the severity of the patient’s condition and their response. Each session lasts an average of 30 minutes, and patients receive treatments three times a week for one month.
Following these at-home exercises will help maintain spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. With our treatment program, many patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire course of therapy.

Risks & Complications of Spinal Decompression Therapy

Although it is safe, some risks and potential complications should be considered. Before starting any treatment program, discussing any potential risks and complications with your doctor or chiropractor is important. The most common side effects include mild to moderate soreness, temporary inflammation or swelling in the area of treatment and occasional headaches. More serious risks are rare but can include the following:

  • Nerve damage
  • Worsening of existing conditions such as herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Finding new areas of pain

Surgical Method of Spinal Decompression Treatment

In more advanced cases, spinal decompression surgery may be necessary. The type of surgery performed will depend greatly on the location and severity of the condition being treated, as well as other factors specific to the individual patient. Some common surgical methods for spinal decompression include laminectomy, spinal fusion, and discectomy. These procedures can help to reduce pressure on the nerves and stabilize the spine. While these surgical procedures can be effective, they often have a much longer recovery period and more potential risks than non-surgical treatment options like spinal decompression therapy
