Spinal Decompression Therapy for Athletes

Published August 8th, 2023 by Dr. Markson

If you love lifting weights or playing sports, you know that injuries like a herniated disc are unfortunately all too common. Even with proper lifting form and the right gear, you can still incur a painful injury that can take you off your game and leave you on the sidelines. Spinal decompression therapy is a great recovery treatment for athletes looking to get back to top form and live life pain-free. 

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy? 

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can help athletes deal with and overcome back pain. Thanks to a unique table and advanced computer technologies, this form of treatment safely and gently relieves pressure on spinal discs and nerves while promoting proper alignment. 

Essentially, spinal decompression therapy creates a vacuum within the discs of your spine, promoting the flow of water and nutrients that help injured discs heal. This allows the spine to come into proper alignment, eliminating pain and helping prevent future injuries.

Whether your activity of choice is running, basketball, or lifting weights, you can get a herniated disc.
