Decompression Therapy Riverside

Decompression therapy’s goal is to relieve back, neck, or leg pain. Spinal decompression is a non-surgical procedure that stretches the spine using a device or traction table. The surgical procedure is called laminectomy, microdiscectomy, discectomy, osteophyte removal, and many more. If you are scared to undergo knives and needles, this is a perfect way for you. The effect will be longer to occur, though, but we assure you that it will come. Decompression Therapy Riverside is here to discuss with you everything you need to know about non-surgical spinal decompression.

The devices or procedures used in performing decompression for the back are similar to chiropractic, osteoporosis, and other bone-related illnesses. Traction and decompression therapy have the same goals: to relieve pain and promote a healing environment for degenerating, bulging, or herniated discs. Decompression is a type of treatment that aims to cure and provide comfort to:


  • Herniated disc- the therapist will put pressure on the area to reposition the bulging disc. The therapist will also create a lower pressure in the disc that will give way for blood, oxygen, and needed nutrients to flow back into your spine.

  • Back and neck pain

  • Worn spinal joints

  • Sciatica- pain or weakness in the upper part of the body that is slowly tingling to the bottom

  • Injured spinal nerve roots


Just like massage therapy, spinal decompression’s claim to cure back pains is still not proved by science. Decompression for the back is believed to give relief, but not a total cure. It may take away the problem now but will come back after months, depending on the treatment’s frequency. The effectiveness of decompression still relies on the person having it. Many people always say “mind over matter”; what you believe in is what you will be achieving. Science could only prove that massage helps regulate blood, water, oxygen, and nutrients inside the body.

How Does Non-Surgical Decompression Works

The therapist will make you change into loose clothing. The therapist will put a harness into you while you lay your back on a traction table, which the therapist will operate using a computer. The treatment may last from 30 minutes to an hour. In a span of five to seven weeks, you will undergo 28 treatments. Do not ever undergo decompression if you are pregnant, have a bone fracture, tumor, abnormal aortic aneurysm, osteoporosis, and metal implants in the spine.


Decompression is usually the last resort of experienced discomfort but afraid to undergo a surgical operation. It may help relieve the pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness they are enduring. You must know that the effect of decompression won’t come out after the first therapy session. If you want to skip the easy surgery process, you have to wait for a non-surgical procedure’s long effectiveness.


If you undergo surgery, the risk you will be facing is; infection to the blood, internal bleeding, blood clot, anesthesia, and tissue or nerve damage. The doctors do not give 100% assurance that your back will return to normal after surgery.

What Causes Back Pain


Simple back pain could easily ruin someone else’s day. With your everyday living life, you are doing things that could damage your back later on, just like slouching in your office chair or not having a proper posture when walking or picking up heavy items. You may often find yourself suffering, especially at night when you lay on your bed. Back pain is the product of the following:


  • Disc Degeneration- this is a problem when your spine moves uncertainly.

  • Sprain

  • Fracture of the Bone

  • Bone Diseases- such as scoliosis, spinal stenosis, spine curvature, and narrowing of the spinal column
