Read on to find out if Spinal Decompression Therapy is right for you.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a specialized type of rehabilitation therapy that can rehabilitate a misaligned or injured the spine. Spinal Decompression therapy works by stretching out the spine and thereby creating room for the displaced vertebrae to move back into its optimal position. When the spine is stretched, a vacuum is created that naturally moves the vertebrae back in place.

Additionally, when the spine is stretched, there is more room for the passage of essential nutrients and circulation, which in turn aids overall healing.

How is the Spine Stretched in Spinal Decompression Therapy?

When undergoing spinal decompression therapy, a trained chiropractor will gently help the patient stretch with the use of a traction table or similar motorized device which can gently pull vertebrae apart and let them set back together naturally. Your spine is the hub of your nervous system and can be easily damaged or throw out of alignment; it is essential to only receive spinal decompression therapy from a trained chiropractor for this reason.

Spinal decompression therapy is not painful, and most patients report feeling a lessening in pain after each session. How long each treatment session will take depends on the client and the severity of his or her injury, likewise the number of treatment sessions necessary to get back to health also depends on the injury.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "May says, Dr. Luke is the Best Chiropractor Doctor, I have gone to in all my life. Before seeing Dr. Luke, I used to receive massages and I took Advil daily. I had symptoms of lower back pain, headaches, and pain in my abdomen. Dr. Luke and his style of Chiropractic relieved my headaches and lower back pain; Chiropractic has made me feel much better since I started adjustments with Dr. Luke. Event the pain in my abdomen is gone. I never thought another Chiropractor would be beneficial but I found out that Dr. Luke is the Best that there is. He does make a huge difference and would recommend Dr. Luke to everyone. Thank You, Dr. Luke!"

  • "I am a professional landscaper constantly using my back and body my work is very physical. With severe back pain especially in my lower back area. I would tell anyone the importance of proper alignment, which leads to a good physical body. Your body needs correction and you must take the steps to correct your problem. Whoever hesitates to correct the body's misalignment will lead to malfunctioning and a crippled body. Dr. Luke adjusted my body to have correct alignment. I'm back to work and good to go. Mahalo, Dr. Luke!"

  • "Awesome!!! Helped both my husband and I. First it was my husband- his shoulder would lock up and was stiff and painful. 1st treatment with Cold Therapy/adjustments his shoulder unlocked!!! no more pain or stiffness.
    Then recently I injured my knee, I was on pain medicine and told by my doctor I would need surgery to fix this. I ended up in Dr. Luke's office and have already felt tremendous relief. I mustered up the courage and one day got my back and neck adjusted as well. OMG!!! I am truly enjoying my smooth turning neck and less lower back stiffness due to the adjustments, Don’t be scared just do it !!! And feel great.
    Both my husband n I continue our visits with Dr. Luke . We enjoy the easy going atmosphere . Dr.Luke will teach you how to care for your specific condition . Come and check it out !!! You will be amazed and most happy that you did.."
