How Spinal Decompression and Low-Level Laser Therapy Can Help Alleviate Back & Neck Pain

Discover how spinal decompression and low-level laser therapy work together to provide effective, non-invasive relief for chronic back pain. 


Nonsurgical spinal decompression and low-level laser therapy are two innovative and non-invasive treatments for chronic back and neck pain. These two treatments have been shown to be effective in reducing pain and improving spinal health for patients with conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis.


Not just 'effective' but game-changing!


Spinal decompression involves the use of a computer-controlled traction table to apply gentle, adjustable tension to the spine. The purpose of the traction is to decompress the spinal discs and reduce pressure on the spinal nerves. This can help to alleviate back pain, give the discs a chance to heal, and enhance mobility. Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective alternative to traditional spinal surgery and drastically improve pain that's going into the arms or legs.


Low-level laser therapy, also known as cold laser therapy, is also a non-invasive and painless treatment that uses low-level light to penetrate deep into the tissues and promote healing. The laser energy is absorbed by the cells, which then triggers a cascade of biological reactions that help to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. This treatment is effective for a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, and arthritis.


In fact, the American College of Physicians, the world's largest MEDICAL organization recommends low-level laser as one of their first-line therapies for back pain. 


In terms of how these treatments work together, low-level laser therapy is often used in conjunction with spinal decompression therapy to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. The laser therapy can help to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in the affected area, while reducing healing time. All of this while spinal decompression therapy can help to relieve pressure on the spinal discs and the nerves exiting the spine while allowing the disc to have more opportunity to heal. When we add targeted exercise and rehabilitation to the treatment, our patients really do very well and have outstanding outcomes. 


This combination of treatments can help to provide long-lasting relief from back pain and improve overall spinal health.


It's important to note that not all patients are suitable for nonsurgical spinal decompression and low-level laser therapy. Patients with severe spinal conditions, such as spinal tumors or fractures, may require more invasive treatments. Additionally, patients who are pregnant or have certain medical conditions may not be eligible for these treatments. A thorough evaluation by our providers here at Creek Stone Integrated Medical is recommended before undergoing this treatment.


To wrap it up, nonsurgical spinal decompression and low level laser therapy are two innovative and effective treatments for chronic back pain. They are non-invasive, safe, and affordable alternatives to traditional treatments and can provide long-lasting relief from back pain and improve spinal health. And when combined, they are powerful and effective at preventing spinal surgeries and getting our patients back in the game and providing for their families.
