Lumbar Decompression Q & A

What is lumbar decompression?

Lumbar Decompression Therapy, also known as spinal decompression, is a non-invasive treatment for chronic low back pain. It’s a traction-based therapy that uses simple but sophisticated equipment to gently stretch your spine to reduce pressure and pain. 

Dr. Banasiak at Wine Country Chiropractic is certified in spinal decompression.

How does lumbar decompression work?

Lumbar Decompression Therapy works by relieving pressure on the discs in your lumbar spine and improving nutrient flow to heal damage. Each vertebral bone in your spine is separated and cushioned by an intervertebral disc.

Bulging and herniated discs are common causes of back pain. Because there’s no direct blood supply to these discs, your body can’t repair this type of disc damage.

The gentle force applied to the spine during lumbar decompression lowers the pressure in the spine’s discs. Repeatedly stretching and releasing the spine improves blood flow to the discs, giving it the nutrients it needs to heal.

Am I a candidate for lumbar decompression?

The Wine Country Chiropractic team conducts a comprehensive exam to determine the best treatment for you. They take a holistic and integrative approach to care and utilize many modalities to ease pain, support healing, and improve overall health and well-being.

The team may consider you a candidate for Lumbar Decompression Therapy if you have:

  • Low back pain
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Injured, pinched or inflamed spinal nerves

If you have ongoing back pain and you’re searching for a non-surgical solution, the team at Wine Country Chiropractic can help.

What happens during lumbar decompression?

The team at Wine Country Chiropractic performs your lumbar decompression therapy at the office. During therapy, you lie on the decompression table, and your provider places a comfortable harness around your waist over your clothes.

Your provider programs the small computerized motor to gently pull on the harness and stretch your spine. The force of the stretching increases gradually over several minutes to a peak that distracts the vertebra and stretches the soft tissue. 

You go through several cycles of stretching and relaxation during your lumbar decompression therapy, which takes about 20 minutes. The team recommends a series of six to 12 treatments to gain the most benefits.
