What is Spinal Decompression and How Can it Help Relieve Back Pain

what is spinal decompressionSpinal decompression. If you suffer from lower back pain, you might have heard of spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is one of the many therapies used in our DRS Protocol treatment for back pain and neck pain. Before you decide to undergo any sort of treatment for chronic pain relief, it’s always a good idea to do some research into what the treatment will consist of. In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about spinal decompression therapy, and we’ll even walk you through what you can expect from a therapy session.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression is a nonsurgical treatment that relieves back pain by taking pressure off the spinal discs. This is achieved by gently stretching the spine, which introduces negative pressure in the discs, relieving pressure. Once pressure is taken off of the discs, water and oxygen are able to move freely around the discs, which will jumpstart your body’s natural healing. Spinal Decompression Therapy has been found successful in relieving a wide variety of spinal conditions including:

  • herniated or bulging discs
  • degenerative disc disease
  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • sciatica

It is also one of the many treatment modalities used in the DRS Protocol™ which has been highly effective for the relief of chronic pain conditions.

What is The DRS Protocol™

During Valentine’s Day, it’s great to take some time to focus on all of our loved ones – family, friends, children, back…. Wait, what was that last one? Back? Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten what it’s like to be in love with your back! Let’s face it – over time, our bodies can let us down as we get older. It seems like with age comes more and more back pain – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

This Valentine’s Day, take some time to remember why you fell in love with your back in the first place.

  1. it supports you
  2. it bends over backward for you
  3. it moves you

But, treated poorly, or due to wear and tear, it can cause you pain. Show your back you love with these ways to minimize the strain put on your back.


The first thing you can do for your back is exercise. If you suffer from back pain, a light workout will do wonders for your spine. It might seem counterintuitive, but exercise is a crucial step to maintaining growth and promoting healing. The stretching of muscles greatly speeds up the tissue repair process. Not to mention, maintaining a healthy weight will reduce muscle strain and drastically minimize back pain. But take it easy and consult with your doctor first.


Similarly, we’ve also found that Yoga is an amazing exercise for not only the body but also the mind. Get ready for the day by spending a few minutes stretching or doing yoga first thing in the morning. You will be surprised by how much this will help your back pain and your overall mood.

Hot and Cold Therapy

If you’re still experiencing pain after a moderate exercise, try lying down on top of a heating pad or an ice pack. Hot and Cold therapy is a great way to keep pain to a minimum. Try experimenting with both hot and cold temperatures and see which one works best for you.

Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep. At rest, your body begins to repair strained muscles and more! If you wake up with back pain, it could very well be your sleeping position. Experiment with different sleeping positions and see which one works best for you. An effective sleeping position for people with back pain is on your side with a pillow between your knees.

See a Chiropractor

Chronic back pain can make you feel like a zombie

Back Pain and Zombies

Back problems such as degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, and sciatica can leave you moving slowly, walking with a limp, hobbling, and even moaning in pain. Each year, roughly 50% of adults experience back pain.

Not only do back problems come with a great deal of pain, but they also make it hard for you to get around, effecting your everyday life. If you are experiencing numbness, tingling, back or neck problems it’s hard to focus on anything else. The pain is relentless. It can take over your life and leave you in a fog.

Pain Medication Doesn’t Lift The Fog

When you are in severe pain, it can be easy to grab the first painkiller that promises to relieve some of the pain. Unfortunately, medications really only dull the pain, not treat it, and can leave you feeling even more like a zombie! Life becomes a vicious cycle of back pain and grogginess.

Fortunately, Dr. Jason Davis, of the (Davis Clinic of Chiropractic) in The Villages, Florida specializes in the safe, noninvasive treatment of back pain with the DRS Protocol. No surgeries, no addictive pain medications- only natural, effective procedures.

Getting older doesn’t have to be a pain in the back for The Villages residents!

enjoying retirement in the villagesNearly everyone experiences back pain sometime in their lives. And while it’s true that the normal wear and tear of daily life on our bodies as we age can’t be ignored — spending your “golden years” with an aching back is NOT inevitable.

Our spines are made up of individual vertebrae separated by discs — soft pads of tissue that protect the bones from rubbing against each other. As we age, the discs begin to shrink causing stiffness and pain as the bones start to rub against each other.

There are several lifestyle habits that can help you avoid back pain as you age. It is important to maintain your optimal weight and eat a diet rich in nutrients that contribute to healthy joints and strong bones. Exercise and stretching are important parts of keeping your back and abdomen strong and flexible. Practicing good posture when you stand or sit, lifting heavy objects safely, and avoiding stressful repetitive motions are also key factors for maintaining a healthy back.

Back pain treatment in The Villages

If you do suffer from back pain, don’t ignore it! The conditions causing back pain are cumulative and can contribute to long-term damage if current symptoms are not addressed. There simply is no reason to suffer from back pain just because your’re older. Dr. Jason Davis of the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in the Villages, FL is one of only a handful of doctors in the U.S. who has studied and uses the DRS Protocol. DRS is a pain-free, surgery free, drug free process for eliminating your back pain, no matter what your age.

Patient Review of Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages

davis clinic of chiropractic review“I was experiencing severe back pain  daily and at times non stop. I was not able to do my daily activities. A surgeon sent me to pain management and I received several spinal epidurals. They worked for about a year, but the next set didn’t work at all.

I then sought the opinion of two different surgeons. I had 5 herniated discs. One wanted to fuse the L4-L5. The other wanted to fuse the L1-L2 discs.

Upon receiving treatments from the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic my back pain disappeared. I am now participating in Zumba, Groove, and Pilates classes and able to do my normal activities without pain.

My thanks to you Dr. Davis and his amazing staff!” – T.B.
