Spinal Decompression Therapy in Calgary

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapy treatment that treats chronic pain and acute pain resulting from a series of ailments such as back pain that’s caused by a pressure exerted by the expansion of spinal discs to the spinal nerves as well as a result of arthritic issues. There are various conditions that require this treatment. At Northgate Physiotherapy, Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Centre , we have some of the most qualified experts who can provide you with that much needed spinal decompression in NE Calgary so that you can go back to living your life to the fullest.

Conditions That Can Benefit from Decompression Therapy

The following medical conditions can benefit from successful decompression therapy:

Herniated Disc

Herniated disc is a type of condition that benefits from decompression therapy. This condition happens when the spinal disc is compressed thereby putting pressure on the spinal nerves causing pain and numbness/tingling. A decompression treatment relieves pressure from the damaged disc which alleviates irritation to the involved nerves.

Degenerative Disc

A degenerative disc is another condition that benefits from treatment of spinal decompression. Decompression therapy can aid in the reduction of pressure on the degenerated disc which alleviates painful symptoms.

Facet Syndrome

Spinal decompression therapy also aids in the facet joint syndrome. Facet syndrome may be a result of postural issues, activities that overload the joints or from degenerative/arthritic changes. Relieving pressure on the involved joints allows for decreased pain and improved mobility.

Other Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy

There are so many treatments available for aches and pains - including over-the-counter drugs. Then what makes this form of alternative therapy so different? If you are here because you’ve heard about spinal decompression in NE Calgary but are not sure why this treatment should even be considered by you, here are some reasons:


  • Long-term Results : With medications, you will feel better only temporarily and not actually treat the problem at its root, which spinal decompression can.

  • Non-invasive : While surgeries have their share of benefits, it is still too extreme a solution and does not come without its own risks. Spinal decompression is an apt alternative.

  • Limited to no side-effects: Medications bring with them a risk of side-effects (especially when taken without consulting a specialist). Instead of healing your injury, you may simply end up with more health problems. Decompression therapy posits no such threats.

  • No recovery time: Needless to say, unlike in surgery, you will not have to worry about recovery time with spinal decompression therapy. You can proceed with your day-to-day activities following the treatment.
