Back and neck pain are two of the world’s most common complaints. They can be caused by any number of things, from bad posture to bulging or herniated discs. Whatever the cause, everyone is always looking for effective relief to continue living their life normally. Spinal decompression is one of the most effective treatments for back and neck pain.


We welcome you to the Chiropractic Healing Team in Woodland Hills, CA for spinal decompression services. We’re passionate about helping people achieve back and neck pain relief, and our chiropractor is here to answer any questions you have about the treatment.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

If it’s your first time hearing about this treatment, you would want to know what it is and how it works. Spinal decompression is a treatment that uses a controlled and directed force to relieve pressure on the spine, thereby improving circulation and rehydrating the vertebral discs.

With the use of a specialized table, our chiropractor will stretch your spine. This creates a negative pressure or vacuum inside the discs, allowing them to pull in the herniation, which takes the pressure off of the nerves and allows the flow of blood and nutrients back into the discs. The process is gradual and gentle, with most people feeling pain reduction after just a few sessions. Each session takes around 30 minutes.

What Are the Benefits of Spinal Decompression?

There are many benefits that come with this treatment, such as:

  • Relief from back pain, neck pain, and headaches
  • Improvement in spinal alignment
  • Increased mobility
  • Herniated disc treatment
  • Decreased risk of surgery

For people looking for an effective way to relieve their back or neck pain, spinal decompression is definitely worth considering.

How Safe Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Since this procedure involves spinal stretching, it’s normal to be concerned about its safety, as the spine is one of the most delicate parts of the body. However, you can be assured that our team will take all the necessary precautions to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the treatment. We will carefully monitor your progress and tailor the treatment to your specific needs. This way, we can minimize any risks and maximize the chances of successful treatment.

Some people may also not be suitable for this treatment technique. For instance, if you have implants, such as screws and rods, in your spine or a recent history of spinal surgery, then this treatment may not be right for you. Our chiropractor will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if you’re a good candidate for spinal decompression before proceeding with the treatment.
