Spinal Decompression Therapy


Spinal decompression therapy is done by our Chiropractors and Physiotherapists with the use of hands on manipulation.  The goal of nonsurgical decompression therapy is to open up spinal disc space to relieve chronic back pain and promote an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating or herniated discs.


 Goals of Spinal Decompression:

  • Create less pressure, to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated/buldging disc.
  • By creating less pressure, it will allow for an influx of healing nutrients and substances into the disc.


What do I expect on my first treatment?

  1. Our practitioners will locate the area of pain.
  2. They will do mild soft tissue manipulation on the musculature surround the disc space.  (Muscles around the disc space tend to tighten, as a way of protecting the injured area).
  3. The practitioner will apply pressure above and below the disc space to assist in relieving pressure from the disc.
  4. The practitioner will provide you with a take home of stretching techniques and exercises to do prior to next treatment.

As you are aware, chronic back pain typically doesn't go away within your first treatment, and it is recommended to stick to your practitioners treatment plan so that you can obtain optimal rehabilitation.

MyoDynamic Health is your local Chiropractic & Physiotherapy Clinic in Barrie. Our Therapists provide hands-on manipulations, soft tissue therapy, therapeutic rehabilitation and more! Book your next appointment at MyoDynamic Health.
