Spinal Decompression in McKinney

spinal decompression machineFor patients with disc injuries, it’s common to think that your only options are to take medication for the pain or face having surgery. But with our state-of-the-art non-surgical spinal decompression therapy at Craig Ranch Chiropractic, that’s not the case! We encourage everyone with disc injuries or stenosis to seek a conservative approach such as chiropractic care and decompression first—in many cases, we can help you avoid the need for more invasive approaches.

Who May Benefit

Discs are small fluid-filled spacers that sit between each of your spinal vertebrae and act as shock absorbers. Things like injuries, degeneration, and even the force of gravity can cause pressure on the discs, eventually causing an injury where the fluid bulges, creating a protrusion that can press on nearby nerves. The result is usually pain, which can include numbness and tingling in the arms or legs, depending on which nerves are affected.

Our practice typically sees patients with stenosis, disc injuries, or degenerative disc conditions.

What to Expect

You’ll lie on our special decompression table, and we’ll place straps across your chest and pelvis to keep you positioned correctly. The computerized table will then apply a set amount of stretch to your spine and then release. It does this repeatedly for 25 to 30 minutes.

It works by gently pulling on your spine to open up the joint space and create negative pressure that helps pull the disc fluid back into place, relieving pressure on the nerves. It also helps rehydrate the discs by increasing the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the area to support healing.

In most cases, we’ll begin with gentle chiropractic adjustments. If we don’t see any improvement, we’ll add decompression to your care plan to help open up the joint space. We generally start with a series of six sessions, which is effective for most patients. In some cases, we’ll do a second series.

The condition does not go away for patients with degeneration, so they may need to come in periodically to open up that joint space again.
