Spinal Decompression in Pittsburgh: Spinal Decompression Therapy is a treatment that helps alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine that are between vertebrae. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving pain and increasing functionality in the spine.
Spinal Decompression is a Non-Invasive Treatment to Decrease Pain at Hurley Chiropractic Center
Over time, due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge, become herniated or degenerate. Once this process begins, pain, limited range of motion and discomfort may occur in the spine and in the legs. This low-risk treatment is essential for anyone with lower back issues.
Spinal Decompression can help with the following ailments:
- Back or neck pain
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Degenerative disc disease
- Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
Spinal Decompression Treatment Alleviates Pressure and Elongates the Spine
After Spinal Decompression, patients will feel elongated and relaxed. Other therapies may be combined with spinal decompression, such as diet recommendations and exercises depending on the patient. It is nonsurgical and painless.
There are various kinds of surgical spinal decompression but they are usually classified as a laminectomy or a microdiscectomy. This specialized treatment that involves stretching of the spine can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. Creating space and lowering pressure in the discs will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to the disc that are important for improving functions of the body. This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a different way that you would be unable to do at home.

Torn/Strained Groin that turned my leg black and blue. Mike and his Staff turned it around in about a week and a half. Now for a few more weeks of therapy to stretch and strengthen it back to 100%. This is not the first injury he’s treated for me, back to 100%. Can’t say enough.
Hurley Chiropractic is FABULOUS! The staff is very friendly. There are enough staff that you are never waiting for a serivce. After a car accident sent my entire back into major pain- I can honestly write that for the first time in months, I am getting a break in the pain and see light at the end of the tunnel. The best decision I made was to come to change chiropractors and come to Dr. Hurley! I highly recommend Hurley Chiropractic. Everything is included- Chiropractor-Personal trainers-Rehab and a GYM!
Dr. Hurley’s staff and team does a great job. I came in today bent over and in a lot of pain. After the first treatment, I was standing straighter, and I noticed that there was considerable improvement.
Went in for a neck injury, my range of motion was about 20/100. I saw major improvement after only my first visit, went back the next day and I have full range of motion and my pain has decreased by 60%!!! The entire staff is welcoming and generous. Definitely a 5 star rating, anything less is plain crazy.
Dr Hurley has been my Chiropractor for 15 yrs. He and his staff have always been professional, educated and provided great service.
On my 7th week of Physical Therapy and feeling so much better! Thx to everyone at Hurley Chiropractic!
