Is Spinal Decompression Painful?

Written By Ridge Farm Back Pain Center on June 14, 2021

Spinal DecompressionSpinal decompression is painless. In fact, there are many people who prefer it over certain types of massage therapy. Most patients feel relief the moment decompression begins.

What to Expect When You Undergo Spinal Decompression at Ridge Farm

Pressure is the enemy in most cases when you’re experiencing pain in your spine and back. That pressure most often stems from chronic inflammation, a herniated disc pressing on a nerve, or tight muscles.

When you decompress that pressure, it enables your body to deliver more blood and nutrients to your spine, allows it to heal, and lowers or eliminates pain. Decompression also helps reeling your spine, which helps your health head to toe.

Spinal decompression therapy runs 30-45 minutes. Some patients feel discomfort but that can immediately be addressed as we adjust pressure, position, or even duration of treatment. The bottom line is you should feel zero pain when decompression is performed correctly. We need to know the moment something doesn’t feel right so we can keep you safe and comfortable.

While it may take a few sessions to feel the results, your body reacts instantly to the TLC. You know you’ve finally tipped the internal balance in your favor when you start feeling it. Followthrough sessions ensure you keep feeling great. The number of followup sessions varies from person to person, and the severity of your condition.
