What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic treatment is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as spinal manipulation (also known as chiropractic adjustment). Manipulation (or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues) restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness and allowing the afflicted tissues to heal in Burlington, Ontario. Our qualified practitioners provide some of the top chiropractic care in Burlington and nearby.

Spinal Decompression

What is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression?

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine, which changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure from the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine. This, in turn, creates negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off of nerves and other structures in your spine. Overall, this helps promote movement of water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so that they can heal.


Nonsurgical spinal decompression has been used to treat:

  • Back and neck pain or sciatica, which is pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg
  • Bulging or herniated disks or degenerative disk disease
  • Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots

What Can I Expect From My Spinal DecompressionAppointment

During spinal decompression therapy, you will be fully clothed. The physiotherapist will fit you with a harness around your pelvis and another around your trunk. You either lie face down or face up on a computer-controlled table. The physiotherapist operates the computer, customizing treatment to your specific needs. The treatment may last as long as 30 to 45 minutes and you may require 20 to 28 treatments over the course of five to seven weeks.

Before or after therapy, you may have other types of treatment, such as:

  • Electrical stimulation (electric current that causes certain muscles to contract)
  • Ultrasound (the use of sound waves to generate heat and promote healing)
  • Heat or cold therapy
