Spinal Decompression

We love our Decompression Table!

Spinal decompression/traction is used to treat herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions.

Unfortunately, back and neck pain happens to the best of us!  There are many environmental factors that cause it, such as overdoing physical activity (hopscotch, couch potato-ing, lawn darts?), a poor night’s sleep, or even just a byproduct of getting older!  This makes the need for back pain treatment something that nearly everyone can relate to. For many, medication, a little ice and taking the time to recover are effective methods to relieve back discomfort. However, if your back pain has persisted through several weeks of basic treatment, the use of a decompression table could help you immensely! 

The basic premise of any type of decompression device is simple: to elongate the spine so that spinal anatomy can be properly realigned and nerve compression can be released—without surgery!! It gently stretches and changes the force and position of the spine. This process takes pressure off the spinal discs (gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine) allowing them to retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in the spine.  When this is achieved, it helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.

The results of spinal traction include pain relief, proper spinal alignment, and decompressed joints.  Under the right circumstances, this could significantly improve the way you move and feel throughout the day—hooray!

With the help of other physical therapies, many people find great success with spinal traction.  Treatment reduces pain and the body is more capable of healing itself.  Some people only need spinal traction therapy for a short period of time.  Generally, it takes about 6 treatments in closer proximity to get the body on track. Many people use the decompression table throughout their lives for maintenance—it feels oh so good!

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "I have to give a huge shoutout to the ladies in the front for their help today, and of course to Dr. Brix. Today they just went above and beyond and that customer care needs to be recognized. I will continue to recommend this team to everyone. Thank you all!"
    Stacey Y. Kelowna, BC
  • "I have had a few appointments with Dr Keira Fika and she has been great. I have had chronic pain in my neck, shoulders and head for years and never seem to be able to get rid of it. I have tried every kind of treatment under the sun with little success. In my first few visits I noticed right away Dr Fika was very attentive and really took her time talking to me and testing my body. It is still early but I already am starting to feel better. I highly recommend Dr Fika if you are looking for a chiropractor. She has made a huge difference for my health in just a few visits."

  • "Dr. Stenger has been a life changer in supporting my health for over a year. When I started having knee pains, I was referred to her for orthodics. She got into some comfy orthodics as well as an overall assessment to look further into my spinal health. She educated me about proper pelvis movement and suggested some great stretches to reduce my knee and lower back pain. With monthly regular visits now I am feeling great and so very happy to have someone like Dr. Stenger dedicated and supportive of my health. Thank you as well as the whole team at Brix who are so awesome and friendly!"
