Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Therapy at Quinn Chiropractic Center

If you are suffering from an injured disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, or any other issue that affects your nerves or nerves in your back, spinal decompression may be the best treatment for you. Pain relievers only help you temporarily avoid pain and surgery but cannot help you properly heal. That is why our team at Quinn Chiropractic Center in Arroyo Grande is committed to providing you with the quality care you need for full, non-invasive relief from your neck or back pain with spinal decompression.


What Is Spinal Decompression

Our chiropractor performs spinal decompression as a non-surgical procedure. It consists of having you lay on a specialized table. We will connect you to a machine that will simultaneously facilitate your back to move in two different directions. As a result, the discs in your back gradually separate one another. The separation allows blood to properly flow through the area, promoting a natural healing process within the discs. The machine regulates the level of tension you receive to implement the precise decompression needed for your spine.

How Spinal Decompression Helps

The discs in your spine are circular cushions of cartilage filled with fluid that keeps your vertebrae from rubbing against one another. It is not uncommon for trauma to cause a disc to slip out of its protective position. Occasionally, a disc will lose its fluid, making the vertebrae come in direct contact with each other. It is also possible for discs to degenerate or dehydrate, causing them to not function as adequality. If this happens to you, it is essential to immediately see us for treatment.

Spinal decompression gently lengthens your spine so that discs can find their way back into proper alignment. It may take more than one treatment session for the spine to fully realign. Still, spinal decompression can significantly reduce or eliminate chronic back and neck pain caused by pressure on the discs with enough treatment. It can also ensure that blood flows throughout your back more freely. As a result, an injured disc will receive the nutrient it needs to heal optimally.

  • "Dr. Quinn is knowledgeable, highly skilled, personable chiropractor. His treatments surpass those of other chiropractors I have seen over my lifetime. Currently, I am receiving treatment due to whiplash that occurred when my car was rear-ended at a red light.

    My treatment includes weekly re-evaluation, chiropractic manipulation, therapeutic massage, and intersegmental traction. Dr Quinn also recommended my need for a podiatrist. The podiatrist found several treatable problems. Now my health keeps improving, but without his informed doctor's wisdom I would not have known the extent of help available to me. I am most grateful for Dr. John Quinn's excellent care and highly recommend him and his staff."
