Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression to Reduce Back Pain in Klamath Falls

One of the more common causes of back pain is herniated or bulging discs. When a disk is not performing optimally, the vertebrae in your back can become closer together, pinching down on nerve roots. At Advanced Chiropractic, we offer spinal decompression that can reduce or eliminate this pressure. With the spine properly aligned, the body has an incredible ability to heal from bulging discs.

A Visit to our Klamath Falls Chiropractor

To diagnose spinal decompression, our chiropractor may use a number of techniques. While it is often possible for our chiropractor to visibly see areas of compression, and feel the area by hand, it may be necessary to get an x-Ray done in order to confirm the diagnosis. When spinal compression is suspected, the first line of treatment is decompression therapy. This is done using a specially designed table and gentle chiropractic adjustments. You may feel substantial relief after even one treatment, as the pressure is taken off of your nerve root that is causing pain.

Spinal Adjustments to Reduce Spinal Compression

When the back is properly aligned, the body is better able to heal. Our chiropractor will take a careful look at your spinal alignment, and look for areas that can be adjusted. This will naturally reduce any areas of compression, and improve your overall mobility. It may take a number of chiropractic visits to fully get your back into alignment to the degree that it will stay in alignment in between sessions. 

Stretching Techniques to Decompress the Spine

Once you go to the chiropractor to reduce back pain, you will also learn good stretching techniques that can help decompress your spine. Our chiropractor will work closely with you to assess your needs and to ensure that you are getting the best care possible. When you learn ways to decompress your spine at home, this will give you better mobility and less pain in between chiropractic visits.

Spinal Decompression Therapy is Similar to Traction

Spinal decompression is based on the same theories of traction. The goal is to increase the disc space and relieve pressure from the area. With less pressure on the disc, nutrients are able to reach the disc and promote healing. With less pressure within the disc space, the bulging disc is better able to return to its normal shape. Spinal decompression is an excellent treatment to reduce back pain and give the body what it needs to heal naturally.

During your chiropractic treatment, you may also receive hot or cold therapies to relax muscles and reduce inflammation, ultrasound to reduce inflammation and break up scar tissue, and massage to loosen tight muscles. Let our chiropractor know if any of these treatments cause you further pain.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been going to Dr. Yewchuck for many years. He's always been able to get my stubborn neck and back aligned every time when other Chiropractors can't. I would trust Dr. James any time when it comes to my Chiropractic needs. He adjusted my neck 2 days after having surgery and was very careful getting me on and off the adjustment table. I now live in the Rogue Valley and anytime I'm in Klamath Falls and need an adjustment his office staff always gets me in within minutes of going to the office. Dr. James and his staff are very professional and caring about your individual needs. Can't wait to use his new equipment! I would recommend Advance Chiropractor to anyone."

  • "I don't know where I'd be if it hadn't been for James and his staff.....After a fatal MVA, he was able to find the injuries that neither the ER nor our doctor could at the time. He efficiently and effectively planned a course of action that got me back on the path of recovery. He's compassionate...he has knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff. I'm proud to know him and the gals in his office.... He can certainly help you...I have no doubts about that."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
