What Is Spinal Decompression?

If you suffer from chronic back pain then you know debilitating it can be in your day-to-day life. If back pain is a constant issue you may find relief with spinal decompression therapy – either surgical or nonsurgical. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is done by stretching the back and spine so that it provides additional space between the vertebrae and adjusts the shape of the back to alleviate pain and discomfort while surgical decompression can help in extreme cases that require advanced care. 

At Ortho Integrative in Clearwater, FL, our friendly and professional team of medical associates is ready to help triage your back issues and propel you towards the path of recovery. Whether you see Drs. Dean Shoucair, Emmett Blahnik, or Troy Rahn you can expect to receive top-notch care and a commitment towards your health. 

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Surgery

During spinal decompression therapy, any bulging or herniated disks that you have will retract and help reduce pressure on your nerves and other parts of the spine. Additionally, spinal decompression allows for a better flow of water, oxygen, and other fluids into and around the disks to promote healing. Spinal decompression therapy is done on a specialized therapy table with the usage of advanced computer technology to allow for your spinal column to be slowly, steadily, and gently stretched to alleviate pressure on the discs and vertebrae. At Ortho Integrative in Clearwater IL, Drs. Shoucair, Blahnik, and Rahn are highly trained in spinal decompression surgery and can walk you through the process from start to finish while answering all your questions. 

Surgical Spinal Decompression Surgery

Generally considered the last option, surgical spinal decompression can be used to treat bulging or ruptured discs, bony growths, and other spinal problems. If you are suffering from symptoms including tingling, numbness in your extremities, weakness, or severe pain then surgical spinal decompression may be your best option.
