Spinal Decompression Leduc

Doctor adjusting patients backIncorrect posture, strains, and injuries can lead to discs in the spine becoming injured or damaged. Spinal decompression is an effective, non-invasive way to help alleviate the symptoms. At Willow Park Physiotherapy and Wellness, we provide safe and affordable spinal decompression to help get you back to doing what you love.

How Does It Work?

The delicate intervertebral discs in your spine provide cushioning between your vertebrae and act as shock absorbers in the spine. They also allow for better mobility in the spine and, thus, better overall flexibility.

Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine to create negative pressure that reduces the stress on the discs. It also increases the flow of oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs, facilitating healing.

Our skilled chiropractors can also locate sources of misalignments in your spine with their hands. Using traditional spinal manipulation techniques, they will gently pull on the spine at various angles, allowing decompression to occur and jump-starting the healing process.

Multiple sessions of decompression may be required to achieve optimal healing. Individual treatment plans are designed based on your specific needs.

A Natural Approach to Healing

Spinal Decompression is a safer, non-invasive approach to treating back and neck pain than injections or surgery. Spinal decompression directly treats the problem by reversing the compression your discs undergo every day, providing your body with the means to heal naturally, with very little recovery time.

Conditions It Can Address

Spinal decompression therapy may help address a wide range of disc-related conditions, including:

  • Pinched nerves
  • Chronic neck or back pain
  • Herniated, bulging, degenerated and slipped discs
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Injured/diseased spinal nerve roots
  • Worn spinal joints
  • Post-surgical pain

Before Your Session

Drink plenty of water before your session to ensure your body is relaxed and prepared to stretch. This also allows fluids to pass through your vertebrae, aiding the healing process.

During Your Session

You will lie on a spinal decompression table, where our experienced chiropractor will perform slow and gentle tractions to lengthen your spine. An average initial session lasts up to 45 minutes, with alternating stretching and resting periods.

After Your Session

Afterwards, it is important to continue to drink water to help your back muscles repair themselves. Your chiropractor may also give you some exercises to perform at home to support healing.
