Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression takes the pressure off your spinal discs to ease pain and stiffness in your back or neck.

At Spinal Health Care of Orlando, Dr. Cayo decompresses your spine by stretching it in certain ways. This technique creates a vacuum effect or negative pressure that pushes your spinal discs into their normal position.

Spinal decompression is a safe way to relieve pain without relying on medications or undergoing invasive procedures.

Am I a good candidate for spinal decompression?

Dr. Cayo thoroughly assesses your condition to determine if spinal decompression is the right type of treatment for you.

For example, you might not be a suitable candidate if you have osteoporosis since this condition makes your bones weak.

Dr. Cayo might recommend spinal decompression for easing back or neck pain, or if you have a spinal injury or spinal problems, such as a herniated disc or bulging disc.

What can I expect during spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression typically involves the use of a motorized table that moves into different positions. Dr. Cayo makes sure that you’re comfortable before starting your treatment.

Dr. Cayo places a strap around your hips that holds you to the lower part of the table, and then moves the lower section back and forth while the top of the table stays still. You shouldn’t feel any severe pain or discomfort during your treatment.

Is spinal decompression safe?

Spinal decompression is completely safe when performed by an experienced and trained provider like Dr. Cayo. Dr. Cayo knows how to perform this treatment to safely ease your back and neck pain.

If you have any concerns about spinal decompression, you can discuss them with Dr. Cayo at your appointment.
