Spinal Decompression

At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine in Lubbock, we understand that back pain can make daily life difficult. Spinal decompression is a technique designed to help individuals who are dealing with areas of their spine that are compressed, causing pain, stiffness, and difficulty walking. Dr. Kothmann uses non-surgical spinal decompression for back pain and other spine-related issues.

Understanding the Basics of Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a safe treatment, that does not use medication to relieve pain. Our chiropractor will use a specialized traction table to stretch your spine slowly. The traction opens up the space between your vertebrae, decompressing the area that is causing you pain. Your spinal discs are no longer compressed during the session and the area can get some relief. Once the discs aren't compressed, your circulation to the area will be improved. If you have damaged discs, they cannot heal without nutrient-dense blood going to the area.

What to Expect From Spinal Decompression

During your treatment, you can expect to feel minimal sensations while you are getting worked on. This is a painless process, and you may simply feel like your back is stretching slightly. If you have a significant injury or are struggling with chronic pain, our chiropractor may recommend a number of spinal decompression sessions over a period of several weeks. The session lasts about 15 minutes and additional therapy may be done at this time.

Common Issues Treated by Spinal Decompression

You might receive spinal decompression as a treatment if you are dealing with sciatica, disc herniation, back arthritis, or disc degeneration. It is a non-invasive process that can provide pain relief while supporting the healing process.
