How Quickly Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Neck and back pains are a common source of numerous health issues facing people all over the world. Spinal decompression is a form of alternative therapy that’s been tremendously effective in treating neck and low back pain caused by degenerated, bulging, or herniated vertebrae discs.
It’s the best option for patients who have tried all other treatment forms with no significant results. At Butler Family Chiropractic in Jacksonville, our chiropractor offers non-invasive spinal decompression to help residents of Jacksonville Beach, St. Augustine, Orange Park, and the surrounding areas overcome vertebrae disc pain and pressure for the long term.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
We usually perform spinal decompression therapy on a specialized traction therapy table where our chiropractor employs a combination of gentle force and pull techniques on your spinal discs to create a vacuum due to the buildup of negative pressure. This treatment forces bulging and herniated discs to get back in position, which takes the pressure off nearby nerves, muscles, and ligaments. The treatment helps promote blood and oxygen circulation and other nutrients into irritated discs for healing.
How Long Will It Take to See Results?
A regular spinal decompression treatment plan is usually broken down into 12-20 treatment sessions for 4-6 weeks. Patients have reported experiencing relief within the first few sessions, but some require more time depending on the severity of the condition. Patients will experience significant relief for the most severe conditions by the end of their chiropractic treatment program, which usually is 6 weeks.
