Spinal Decompression

A natural, non-surgical approach in helping your back pain. No drugs, no surgery, all natural!

If you’ve ever wondered what spinal decompression in Fircrest, WA, is, Dr. Slavik Goras of Spine And Disc Center Of Washington is the perfect person to consult. Many of our patients that would have needed to endure surgery have elected Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.

Non-Surgical Spinal Care

Non-surgical spinal decompression is a medical treatment option that can relieve chronic back pain and sciatica. It is safe, non-invasive, and effective. The goal of the therapy is to relieve pressure on structures in the spine, such as discs.

Spinal decompression relieves pressure on the spine, including the lumbar, cervical, and thoracic spinal segments. As a result, it can improve circulation and reduce inflammation. Increased circulation means that more oxygen and nutrients are available to the spine.

Treatment for facet arthrosis

One of the best treatments for facet arthrosis is spinal decompression. This can help relieve pain and increase fluid flow in the spine. It also helps to improve the mobility of joints. Facet arthrosis is a condition where the cartilage in the facet joint starts to wear down. It can happen due to degeneration or injury to the discs in the spine. The symptoms are varied depending on the severity of the damage.

Treatment for lower back pain

Spinal decompression is a treatment for lower back pain that uses traction to gently stretch and relax the spine in rotation, which over time, separates the vertebrae. It is an alternative to surgery and medication. The therapy is gentle and can offer a long-lasting solution.

Although spinal decompression is an effective treatment, it is not suitable for all patients. Therefore, before starting the therapy, Dr. Goras must examine you for any underlying problems.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly­-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called spinal decompression.

Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae.

This creates a vacuum­-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.

How Long does it take?

Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.

If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
