Spinal Decompression in St. Peters

Are you struggling with lower back pain that radiates into your legs or buttocks? If so, spinal decompression may be the solution you need. At Cardinal Chiropractic of St. Peters, we recommend this method of care to anyone suffering from a bulging disc, slipped disc, or herniated disk.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

This non-surgical therapy is highly effective for disc issues. During the process, patients lie on a decompression table, while computer-controlled intermittent traction is applied to the spine. This gentle technique helps alleviate pressure on the discs, and rehydrates and supplies needed nutrients, allowing them to move back into place, and potentially heal over time.

Benefits For You

This spinal stretching method is particularly useful for those with lumbar or cervical bulging discs. It helps provide relief from pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness that may radiate down the legs or arms. Additionally, it has been beneficial for those with spinal stenosis, a condition that causes narrowing of the spinal canal. Though there is no cure for spinal stenosis, decompression offers significant pain relief, allowing people to continue to function.

What to Expect

During the process, patients are fully clothed and may wear loose, comfortable clothing. Sessions typically last around 25 minutes, and patients are in control at all times with a button to stop the machine, if needed. The traction is gentle and comfortable, with most patients reporting little to no discomfort.

Unfortunately, insurance does not cover spinal decompression therapy. But we keep prices affordable and at a fraction of what most other offices charge.
