Why Undergo Decompression Therapy?
Research indicates that an injured disc can be responsible for a significant number of lower back pain cases, as well as sciatic pain, neck pain and arm pain. Compression of the disc increases the pressure inside of it leading to weakening of the outer disc fibers and possible herniation of the disc’s nuclear material.
Why is decompression therapy necessary? The disc is mostly made up of water. Since it does not have its own blood supply, it relies on movement of the neck and back to move the fluid that brings the disc nutrients needed to maintain health and integrity.
A compressed disc has a severe lack of -- if any -- movement. This lack of movement deprives the disc of nutrients, creating a high pressure inside the disc. As the disc dehydrates, the inner nucleus tends to migrate to the outer disc fibers. When this nucleus begins to protrude and put pressure on either a spinal nerve or the spinal cord itself, severe pain usually results until decompression therapy is pursued. This pain can stay local and can radiate into the legs, in the case of the lower back; or the arms, in the case of the neck. If the nucleus actually breaks through the outer fibers of the disc surgery, may be necessary. Medication may help with the pain, but no medication has the ability to decrease the pressure inside of the disc, rehydrate the disc or restore the integrity of the disc. Standard chiropractic care can put motion back into the spine, but the disc still remains compressed. Decompression therapy is the only reliable way to return the disc a good state.

What Our Patients Are Saying.....
“When I came to Due West Chiropractic & Rehab, I had sciatic pain, tingling in my left leg and my entire left foot was numb. As a mom of 2 school aged children, the pain interfered with my daily routine and busy schedule. I started a treatment plan that included spinal decompression, physical therapy, and chiropractic adjustments. After the first two weeks I felt significant improvement in the nerve pain and tingling in my leg and foot. After a month of treatment, I have no sciatic pain and the tingling and numbness are completely gone! Thanks to the wonderful caring and fun staff, I am back to all of my daily activities pain free!”- Mary L.
