Spinal decompression is a drug-free, non-surgical solution for painful medical conditions of the cervical or lumbar spine such as herniated discs, degenerative joint disease, pinched nerves, bulging discs, facet syndrome, and other spinal and back disorders.
Our team of expert spinal decompression chiropractors at Little Mountain Chiropractic & Wellness have helped countless patients heal naturally from such conditions, enabling them to lead healthy and pain-free lives.

Spinal decompression therapy aims to reduce pain and encourage natural healing for patients with herniated and degenerating discs. This therapy causes the disc material, which has either bulged or degenerated, to get sucked back into the correct joint space. It also makes the outer layer stronger by stimulating the cartilage to regenerate, thus preventing re-injury.
You will be asked to lie down on a decompression table and will be fitted into a computer-controlled support system that will stabilize your body by automatically adjusting the correct angle of pull (traction) depending on which area in your spine is having issues. Most patients may experience a painless, gentle pulling sensation. Each session of spinal decompression therapy typically lasts 20-30 minutes.
Depending on your progress and condition, you may need multiple sessions over the next five to seven weeks. However, to ensure the long-term effectiveness of the therapy, it is essential to implement prescribed lifestyle changes or obtain additional treatment recommended by your chiropractor.
Conditions That Can be Treated with Spinal Decompression Therapy
If you are suffering from any of these conditions, we are happy to help at Little Mountain Chiropractic & Wellness. With comprehensive, patient-centered spinal decompression therapy, we can help you lead a pain-free life for years to come.
Low back pain is a common complaint among many and can be caused by various factors ranging from injuries to posture. However, the underlying cause of back pain is generally the herniation or degeneration of the discs between each vertebra. Disc degeneration is a process where wear and tear of the disc cause it to deteriorate. Disc herniation or disc bulging are protrusions that lead to the compression of the surrounding nerves, causing numbness and pain.
Most patients who undergo spinal decompression treatment report a reduction in their pain after the first few sessions. Usually, you can observe significant improvement by the second week of treatment.
Each session of spinal decompression treatment can last anywhere between 20-30 minutes daily for five weeks. However, the number of sessions required to complete the treatment can vary depending on the severity of your condition.
