How Spinal Decompression Treatments Work to Relieve Pain

Neck and back discomfort often arises when your spine is subjected to compression. This compression often results from issues like disc herniations, muscle strains, the effects of whiplash, or extended periods of sitting or standing.

To alleviate this pressure, our team of physicians at Vanguard Spine & Sport in Memorial uses spinal decompression therapy to gently ease these issues affecting the neck and back. Additionally, spinal decompression therapy aids in enhancing tissue repair and hydration by promoting increased blood circulation to the affected area.

The cutting-edge spinal decompression table at our Memorial location is equipped with sophisticated sensors, ensuring precise measurements and monitoring for each of our patients in the Houston area throughout their spinal decompression treatments.

Is Spinal Decompression Therapy Right For You?

Deciding if spinal decompression therapy is the right course of treatment is the first step in our Memorial team’s three-part approach to personalized, conservative pain management. Spinal decompression therapy is recommended for a variety of conditions:

  • Muscle Strain: An injury to the muscle or the tendons attached to the muscle, commonly due to overstretching or overuse.
  • Whiplash Injuries: Neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and sometimes neurological symptoms typically caused by a rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like that experienced in a car accident.
  • Arthritis: In the spine, it can lead to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility, commonly seen in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Spinal Stenosis: Numbness or weakness in the legs or arms caused by the narrowing of spaces in the spine, which creates pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.
  • Herniated Discs: When the soft inner material of a spinal disc protrudes through a tear in the outer layer, causing pain and nerve irritation.
  • Sciatica: Pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down to the legs.
  • Lumbar Radiculopathy: Nerve pain in the lumbar (lower back) region of the spine due to compression or irritation of nerve roots.
  • Intervertebral Joint Dysfunction: Dysfunction or abnormal movement of the intervertebral joints that can lead to pain and limited mobility.
  • Lumbar Facet Syndrome: A disorder affecting the facet joints in the lumbar spine, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the lower back.
  • Spondylolisthesis: When one of the vertebrae slips out of place onto the vertebra below it, often due to a defect, fracture, or degenerative changes in the spine, it causes pain and nerve compression.

To achieve optimal outcomes and effectively relieve persistent neck and back pain, spinal decompression treatments should occur regularly (several times per week or month) as part of an ongoing course of treatment in our Memorial pain clinic. Multiple visits are necessary to undo the damage and compression your spine has accumulated over many years. Vanguard’s conservative pain management team will make sure you understand your treatment plan and the progressive process of your spinal decompression therapy.
