Spinal Decompression in Plano and McKinney

Patient getting spinal decompression treatmentFor people suffering with disc issues and other conditions affecting the neck or low back, spinal decompression therapy can often be an effective solution. Using state-of-the-art technology, we help restore health to the discs and relieve pressure on the joints to facilitate healing.

Spinal decompression has helped many of our Farrar Family Chiropractic patients who previously thought their only option was surgery—and we want to help you, too!


Who It Helps

Discs are the “shock absorbers” between your spinal vertebrae, and when they are damaged by injury, disease or even the effects of gravity, they can’t work as they’re supposed to. Since discs rely on motion to pump nutrients in and toxins out, when the disc or joint fails to move properly, the joint will begin to dry up and break down over time, and the resulting pressure on the nerves leads to chronic pain.

This therapy aims to relieve pressure on the joint, the disc, and the nerve to reduce pain and allow fluid to flow back inside the disc, bringing a normal supply of nutrients so the joint can heal.

The types of conditions that respond well to this therapy include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bulging discs
  • Chronic pain
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Disc herniations
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Radiculopathy
  • Sciatica
  • Stenosis
  • Weakness

What to Expect

Your chiropractor will tailor a care plan specifically to your needs based on a thorough consultation and in-depth assessment, including X-rays. We’ll typically combine decompression with adjustments to relieve the alignment problems that led to the disc degeneration in the first place, and we may incorporate rehab as well.

It typically takes between 12 and 24 sessions to achieve maximum results with this therapy.

Each decompression session is about 15 minutes, and you’ll lie comfortably on our computerized table that will repeatedly apply a gentle stretch and then release to relieve the pressure on your joints and discs. The therapy is not painful, and most patients find it very relaxing.
