Living with chronic back pain, tingling, or numbness? Dr. Mark Currington in Dallas, TX, offers non-surgical spinal decompression to help you achieve relief.

Guide to Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

For individuals experiencing symptoms from a herniated or bulging disc, the impact can be severe, leading to debilitating pain, weakness, tingling, numbness, and more. Many sufferers find themselves relying on medication just to manage their day-to-day activities. Additionally, some may have been informed that surgery is their only recourse. However, there exists an alternative option that doesn’t necessitate either medication dependency or surgical intervention: non-surgical spinal decompression.

Dr. Currington and his team in Dallas, TX, provide insight into this remarkable alternative. Non-surgical spinal decompression offers a promising solution for individuals grappling with disc-related issues. By employing specialized techniques, this approach aims to alleviate pressure on affected discs, thereby reducing pain and promoting healing. It represents a non-invasive option that prioritizes patient comfort and well-being while delivering effective relief from symptoms associated with herniated or bulging discs.

What Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Put simply, this technique is a natural method for decompressing the spine. Also known as decompression therapy, it utilizes a specialized table that has separate upper and lower segments. The patient is fitted to a harness that attaches to the bottom segment. While lying on the table, the lower segment moves slowly to gently stretch the spine.

Why Is Decompression Therapy Effective?

During non-surgical spinal decompression, the stretching of the spine induces a vacuum effect, pulling the disc back into alignment and relieving pressure on surrounding nerves for lasting relief. This process also facilitates the influx of fluids and healing nutrients, restoring disc health and supporting the spinal column.

Additionally, comprehensive stretching creates space throughout the spinal column, reducing pressure on discs, muscles, and other components. This decrease in pressure not only promotes spinal health but also reduces the risk of future disc damage, contributing to long-term relief and well-being.

One Part of Your Healing Plan

Decompression therapy is incredibly effective on its own, but it is typically combined with other techniques to achieve optimal healing. Adjustments are utilized to restore alignment to the spine, which also reduces the likelihood of experiencing another herniated disc.

Therapeutic exercises are often recommended to help strengthen the core and support the spine. Lifestyle adjustments can be vital in addressing the habits or events that led to the herniated disc in the first place. Soft tissue therapies are also typically used to enhance healing and fully relieve tension that puts strains on the spinal column.

These techniques are just a few examples. However, your treatment plan will be customized to your specific needs.

State of the art low back treatment that is  NON SURGICAL and NON- MEDICATED  type of treatment for all types of lower back conditions.

Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly­-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called spinal decompression.


High Tech Solutions

Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum­-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish by retracting disk material off of the pressed nerve


  • Lumbar disk herniations or Bulges creating low back pain or sciatica 
  •  Generalized chronic low back pain                                                                      
  • Sciatica conditions related to the low back
  • Lumbar stenosis causing nerve compression                                                                                                            

Treatment time and frequency

This will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about 20-30 minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within 8-12 weeks.  Each treatment becomes successive upon the previous.  These treatments are cumulative in nature so immediate results are usually not noticed as much as they will be from mid to end of treatment period.

Try this first

If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications or risky degenerative steroid joint injections that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.

Keep in mind that close to 80% of spinal surgeries in the United States are unwarranted statistically and with a success rate of 49% over a 5 year period!  Avoid surgery and try Spinal Decompression therapy before undergoing a dangerous surgery that could be potentially  debilitating.
