Tumwater Chiropractic CenterHave you ever wondered why people hang upside down to help their back pain?  Well, these so-called “inversion tables” are an attempt to use gravity to stretch the spine and take pressure off pinched nerves and arthritic joints.

Unfortunately, these inversion tables are difficult to control, are not very specific in the area that gets stretched, and can even be dangerous for people with certain medical condition (ex: High blood pressure).  However, there is another way to stretch your spine that offers even more benefit than inversion tables without all of the challenges and side-effects.

Spinal Traction (aka Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression), uses a specialized table with a computerized motor to elongate your spine and specifically stretch certain areas that may be causing back pain, sciatica, neck pain, or pinched nerves.  This treatment is individually tailored to each patient based on their symptoms, their size, and their medical history.

This therapy is a very effective non-surgical alternative for cases of disc herniations in the neck and low back, and also provides relief for many other types of spine pain.  When used in combination with other appropriate treatments, Spinal Traction can be an extremely valuable tool in the fight against back pain.

At Tumwater Chiropractic Center, we use one of the most advanced spinal traction tables available, in combination with other treatments we offer (chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, Low-Laser Therapy) to provide the most cutting-edge and effective conservative treatments for spine and nerve pain.

Contrary to popular belief, Spinal Traction won’t make you taller (sorry all you aspiring hoop stars), but you’ll feel like you’re walking on air when you leave the office.
