Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression (Non-Surgical)

Our chiropractor, Dr. TJ Osborne, is proud to offer spinal decompression at Discover Chiropractic in San Jose, CA. Spinal decompression is a non-invasive procedure that you receive in our office. You are relaxed, fully clothed and lie comfortably on a table that stretches your back and spine. Although this may sound simple, the benefits are large as your spine lengthens and begins to return to a healthy, pain-free alignment.

Doctor talking to a patient about Spinal Decompression.

If you are living with back pain, Dr. Osborne evaluates your condition to determine the cause of your discomfort. After locating this, he discusses whether spinal decompression will benefit your condition. Some of the conditions that respond well to non-invasive spinal decompression include:

  • Disc concerns such as a herniated or bulging disc or degenerating discs
  • Nerve issues such as a pinched, injured or diseased nerve
  • Sciatica, in which the sciatic nerve is compromised
  • Spinal joint challenges such as vertebrae misalignments, spinal abnormalities or arthritis
  • Neck pain caused by whiplash, poor posture or imbalanced muscles

Spinal Decompression Benefits with our San Jose Chiropractor

During the spinal decompression session, your spine is gently manipulated through stretching and relaxing phases. These phases alternate to decompress your spine. In other words, the pressure of gravity, activity and poor posture can strain your spine and spinal decompression removes these pressures. You lie on the table and your spine is stretched to create more space between each vertebrae. This helps heal disc, nerve and joint issues as your body relaxes and enjoys the increased energy, circulation and nerve flow. Our chiropractor directs the decompression and your session length may vary depending on your condition. Dr. Osborne may also recommend spinal decompression in combination with other services such as hot and cold therapies, spinal adjustments, lifestyle changes and corrective exercises. All of our treatments work together to alleviate your back pain and return you to your maximum activity level.
