San Jose Chiropractic Spinal Decompression
Mission Chiropractic chiropractors in San Jose provide spinal decompression treatment sessions using technologically advanced traction methods that can reduce disc pressure, relieve pain and facilitate natural healing. A noninvasive and nonsurgical treatment for herniated and bulging discs, spinal decompression is effective in comprehensive chiropractic care treatment plans for alleviating symptoms related to a range of spinal problems including: spinal stenosis, sciatica, failed spinal surgery, or other conditions that manifest as chronic pain in the back, legs, neck and arms.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
A licensed chiropractor uses spinal decompression to gently and safely release tension in the spinal column using a computerized monitoring device for pain in the lower back or neck area. When muscle spasms cause a tightening or closing up of the vertebra, controlled traction techniques in chiropractic care work through gentle stretching of the spine to reduce spasm during the process and slowly and slightly increase the space between the vertebrae. This release in pressure allows the spinal nerve to relax, and patients have reported immediate pain relief. Spinal decompression provides long-term benefits and is a sought-after alternative to drug therapy treatments or surgery for many spinal conditions. In addition, spinal decompression is more cost-effective than other options for treating chronic pain and is safe and fully approved by the FDA.

Who Can Benefit from Spinal Decompression Treatments?
Whether you have sciatica, a pinched nerve, neck pain, lower back pain or other symptoms associated with degenerative discs and pain associated with the spine, spinal decompression treatments administered by a Mission Chiropractic chiropractor can offer effective pain relief and overall wellness.
What Happens During Treatment?
Following an initial consultation and medical evaluation of your condition, a Mission Chiropractic chiropractor will determine whether spinal decompression can help you and will design a fully tailored treatment plan. Sessions begin with patients fully clothed and resting comfortably on the decompression table where treatment alternates between phases of stretching and relaxation for a period of up to 12 minutes. This monitored stretching process improves blood flow and allows nutrients to heal the affected area. Nerve pain is gently relieved through careful and slow widening of the vertebra. Thorough assessment, correct positioning and the use of pre-programmed patterns of distraction are developed at our San Jose clinic to ensure long-term healing and relief.
Is Spinal Decompression Therapy Effective?
A recent clinical study has revealed that the majority of patients who had received spinal decompression therapy under a chiropractor’s care continued to remain pain free for five years or more following treatments. Certain methods for treating spinal problems that include drug therapy and surgery often merely cover up the pain and the original disorder often returns and may even worsen over time. A complete Mission Chiropractic chiropractic care program combines spinal decompression therapy with additional options that include a tailored exercise program and heat and muscle stimulation.
