Spinal Decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression can be a terrific source of relief for those suffering from back pain caused by herniated or bulging discs. By lying on a mechanical traction table that is controlled through a computer program, the spine experiences a gentle easing of the pressure between the spinal discs. This creates the capacity for oxygen, water, and nutrients to work their way backing into the disc space that was formerly too restricted.

Is Spinal Decompression a Good Fit?

The forms of back pain that benefit greatly from this modality include:

  • Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Arthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Post-surgical pain

If you are experiencing pain from any of these maladies, Spinal Decompression—often combined with physical therapy—can be an excellent source of pain relief. Patients have experienced relief immediately following their first treatment. The relief is produced by the space that is created by the traction, but the beauty of this treatment is that it promotes a healthy environment and stimulation of blood supply for the disc, which leads to healing, in addition to pain relief.

What to Expect

As with any chiropractic treatment, we will begin with a thorough examination that will include reviewing your medical records. Your x-rays and CT and/or MRI scans will be read and evaluated by our trained chiropractors. Once we determine you are a good candidate for spinal decompression, you will begin by lying on the traction table, either on your back or your side, depending on your unique condition. The upper portion of the table, where your head and shoulders lie, remains stable. The lower half of the table is outfitted with a harness that holds your hips in place. This lower portion slides from side-to-side, providing gentle traction and encouraging relaxation. Most patients experience some degree of pain relief after just one 30-45-minute treatment and many are fully recovered after a series of appointments. Pain caused by herniated discs can benefit from combining spinal decompression with heat and/or cold therapy and also ultrasound therapy.

A Safe, Effective Pain Treatment

Bulging, herniated discs are painful due to the pressure they create on the surrounding nerves. Spinal decompression therapy is a risk-free alternative to surgery, providing an opportunity to create a healing environment by opening up the space between the vertebrae. We highly recommend this safe, effective treatment for back pain relief, as we continually see a substantial reduction in pain in our patients.

Meet Dr. Alejandro Mioni

His son went to college on a wrestling scholarship and wrestled for the Olympic Training Center at Northern Michigan University.  He is in the Navy now and currently training to be a Navy Seal (fingers crossed). His oldest daughter graduated from the University of Arizona and is also in the Navy, training to be a Nuclear Engineer. Their youngest daughter is going to ASU on an Academic Scholarship, having been accepted into the Barrett Honors College. She is studying Medicine.

Dr. Mioni has many hobbies, and his wife says he has all the stuff in their closet and garage to prove it. He earned a bronze medal in the Junior Olympics as a Marksman. He likes to ride ATVs and UTVs. He likes building remote controlled electric trucks and cars, flying kites, swimming, riding bikes, playing board games, corn hole, golf, and pinball machines. He enjoys racing cars, and scuba diving. He also loves movies. And yet, his main priority is—without a doubt—his family.
