Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Therapy in Athens GA

Anthony Chiropractic provides a gentle, nonsurgical spinal decompression answer to pain relief from bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and spinal stenosis.

Spinal Disc Decompression Treatment

Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression treatment involves decompressing the spinal discs in an effort to relieve pressure on spinal nerves. By cycling through distraction and relaxation phases, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative intradiscal pressure, causing it to pull the herniated disc material back inside through a vacuum effect

This gentle yet effective pain management technique can significantly relieve back pain, neck, pain, and leg pain. A peer-reviewed clinical study titled Surgical Alternatives: Spinal Decompression from the Orthopedic Technology Review has determined this noninvasive, nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy can be successful in up to 86% of patients with bulging or herniated discs, degenerative joint disease, and other intervertebral disc conditions. 


This condition affects the sciatic nerve which extends down from the lower back to each leg and generally affects one side of the lower body. Usually, sciatica pain travels from the lower back through the back of the thigh and down through the leg.

Bulging Or Herniated Discs

The spine’s vertebrae are cushioned by gel-like discs that are prone to wear and tear from normal aging or injuries. A weak disc may rupture or bulge which can cause pressure to be applied to the spinal nerve roots. This can cause debilitating pain.

Degenerative Disc or Joint Disease

Degenerative Joint Disease, or DJD, is characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage and may affect any joint in the body. Degenerative Disc Disease, or DDD, is the gradual process of the weakening of the pads of cartilage sitting between the bones of your spine.

Spinal Stenosis

This condition is the narrowing of the spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the lower back and the neck. Sufferers may experience pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness.
