Is Spinal Decompression Covered by Insurance?

This is part three of a three-part series on commonly asked questions about spinal decompression.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we also offer spinal decompression as a non-surgical modality to speed up healing. This technique is effective for disc issues like bulging or herniated discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, or chronic low back pain. It can often help patients avoid injections or surgery. We also recommend this service for people who aren’t responding to other approaches or have had unsuccessful surgeries.

Decompression uses a customized table to gently stretch and release your spine repeatedly. This process relieves pressure from the joints and allows healing blood and nutrients to flow into the spaces between vertebrae. As a result, patients experience faster healing and less pain.
