Is Spinal Decompression Therapy right for you?

I f you have persistent back pain, it’s probably difficult to concentrate on anything else other than seeking relief.
The answer for many people’s symptoms is nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Therapy. Read on to discover if it might be right for you.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression is a proven treatment that may help relieve chronic neck and back pain. It’s a type of motorized traction that works by stretching the spine gently which alters the spine’s force and position.

The decompression relieves the pressure off the spinal disks and nerves between the vertebrae bones and allows bulging or herniated disks to retract. This promotes healing by moving oxygen, water, and other fluids into the disks.


Dr. Kaster uses nonsurgical spinal decompression to treat:

  • degenerative disk disease or bulging/herniated disks
  • back and neck pain, or sciatica
  • spinal stenosis
  • facet syndrome (worn spinal joints)
  • radiculopathy (injured spinal nerve roots)

Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Yes it does. When used in conjunction with other therapies to aid and speed healing, such as adjustments, massage, and electro-stimulation, spinal decompression is an excellent alternative to surgery. Many candidates for decompression feel a vast improvement from their first treatment.

The key in the success of spinal decompression depends on whether or not each individual patient is a good candidate for the treatment. After all, not every patient’s condition is alike.

A detailed exam with Fort Myers Chiropractor and Naples Chiropractor, Dr. Jason B. Kaster, will help him to recommend a trial of care with reasonable expectations and determine whether decompression can help your condition. Decompression therapy can often make a big difference in a patient’s quality of life.
