Whether due to injury, disease, poor posture, bad body mechanics or repetitive stress, all too often people find themselves suffering from bulging discs, herniated discs or degenerating discs – and all the discomfort that comes with them. Disc problems result in pain and discomfort ranging from uncomfortable to downright debilitating. Spinal decompression is designed to help alleviate the pressure on the disc, encouraging healing and relieving pain. At Renascence Chiropractic Center, we are your resource for spinal decompression in Tacoma. We are here to help you get back pain relief, and we are ready to provide the necessary treatments to get you back in good health.
What is Decompression Therapy? Non-surgical Spinal Decompression relieves pain, reduces inflammation of the spine, and restores spinal motion all while treating the underlying cause. This pain-free procedure is designed to relieve the pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. As pressure builds inside the disc it causes bulging of the gelatinous material inside the disc. This jellylike tissue can be placed under so much pressure that it can cause the annulus, or outer band of the disc, to rupture. When the disc has ruptured or “herniated,” it may create pressure against one or more of the spinal nerves which can cause pain in the back or neck that can travel into the legs and or arms causing weakness or numbness and several other symptoms.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression creates negative pressure within the disc, causing the herniation to be drawn slowly back into the disc space, (vacuum- effect) thus relieving the disc pressure on spinal nerves as it rehydrates the disc which usually relieves the pain. Reducing pressure in the disc also restores the natural transfer of surrounding blood flow/fluids, nutrients, and oxygen into the disc, stimulating the formation of collagen which helps the disc to heal.
Conditions That Benefit from Decompression

Spinal Decompression is clinically proven There have been several studies performed that demonstrate the effectiveness of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. As referenced by Gionis et al., “Results showed that 86% of the 219 patients who completed the therapy reported immediate resolution of symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the 219 patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment.” Spinal Decompression Therapy has saved many people from spinal surgery and allowed them to return to their regular active lifestyle.
