Spinal decompression can be used to relieve peripheral radiation/sciatica and pain associated with protruding discs, bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, degenerative joint disease, as well as other conditions. Research points to the beneficial effects of traction because it can distract joint surfaces, reduce protrusions of nuclear discal material, stretch soft tissue muscles, and mobilize joints. These effects result in pain relief.
Our team is proud to offer non-surgical spinal decompression in Fishers. The goal is to get you well and keep you well for the long haul.
What is Spinal Decompression?
To understand why spinal decompression works, let’s first discuss your discs. Between the discs of your spine are fluid-filled sacs. These sacs aid in your movement and flexibility. When the sacs become dehydrated, injuries can ensue. Proper disc movement is essential for nerve flow, and when your nerves aren’t flowing correctly, dis-ease is rampant.
Spinal decompression therapy is designed to help create space between your discs. This allows the fluid-filled sacs to function as they were designed. This process is known as osmosis. As the discs are stretched and squeezed, fluid enters the space.
The result? A healthy, functioning disc.
Spinal decompression can benefit a variety of conditions, including disc problems (degenerative and herniated), low back pain, neck problems, and pinched nerves among others.
At our practice, we offer a comfortable spinal decompression table for patients to relax while the session takes place. After just a few minutes, patients are free to walk out the door and return to their daily activities. There is no pain associated with a session—most find it extremely relaxing.

Managing your diet
What you eat is one of the most significant contributions to the success or failure of your weight loss journey. Calories are a measure of energy that you obtain from what you consume. Eating foods that are high in protein not only fill you up, but also give you the nutrition that you need to function throughout the day. While working to balance your nutrition and caloric intake, it is recommended that you avoid foods that are high in calories. Sugary drinks and foods that are high in processed fats are some of the biggest contributors to weight gain. Having a plan for your diet and nutrition is key to a successful weight loss journey. Despite popular belief, a healthy diet doesn't have to mean consuming only bland foods. There are dozens of recipes for making tasty, flavorful meals that are good for you.
How exercise works
The other component of losing weight is exercise. To lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit. What this really means is that you need to burn more calories than you consume. Our bodies naturally burn calories throughout the day to provide us the energy we need to survive and thrive. Adding exercise to your routine helps burn extra calories and push your weight loss journey forward. Another benefit of exercising is that you build muscle. Building muscle while exercising is like doing double the work. As you exercise, you are burning calories and building muscle tissue, and the more muscle tissue that you build, the more calories your body will naturally burn. Finding a healthy balance in your diet, nutrition, and exercise is the best way to maximize your weight loss and help you become healthier.
We teach our patients special “blueprint” exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in optimal health.

One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractic radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as possible tumor or fracture) and/or an additional aid to determine where to adjust the spine. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.
Our chiropractors also order MRI’s when indicated and will go through the actual MRI images with you so that you can see what is actually going on I your area of complaint. Our doctors are skilled at reading both x-ray images and MRI’s.
Ultrasound therapy is a chiropractic treatment used to help reduce muscle pain and increase range of motion. By using sound waves, we are able to stimulate deep inside the tissue. This minimizes stiffness, swelling, and pain while also promoting circulation, and pain-free movement.
Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.

We will then do a complete physical examination of your child’s spine. We want to ensure that all areas are working and functioning correctly.

What is Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the nerves that transmit information to and from your brain and spine to the rest of your body are damaged. When the nerves are damaged, the messages that they transmit are distorted, resulting in a variety of symptoms. The symptoms of neuropathy greatly depend on the type of nerves that are damaged, ranging from autonomic nerves, motor nerves, and sensory nerves.
Common Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
- Sharp shooting pains
- Tingling/Pricking Sensation
- Sensitivity to touch
- Muscle weakness or spasms
- Difficulty moving your arms, legs or atrophy
How We Treat Neuropathy
Rather than prescribing drugs that only hide the pain, or treatments that block the distorted nerve signals, our treatment method targets the root of the pain and re-builds nerve pathways to get them communicating properly again. This contributes to a reduction in symptoms.
