Compressed Spine Pain Symptoms

What Causes Spine Compression?

The spine is a stack of tiny bones (vertebrae) that runs from the neck through the lower back. Injuries and medical conditions can put pressure on the spine and nerves in the spinal cord. Gradual wear and tear of the spinal bones due to aging is a common cause of compression, which could occur anywhere along the spine. Other causes are:

Poor posture

Injured spine, such as from an auto accident

Scoliosis (irregular spinal curve)

Misaligned spine (subluxation)

Rheumatoid arthritis 


Spinal tumor

Conditions Treated With Spinal Decompression Therapy 

Non-invasive spinal decompression therapy is a chiropractic technique that provides pain relief for these conditions: 

Bulging discs

Herniated discs 


Disc degeneration

Pain due to failed back surgery 


Compressed Spine Pain Symptoms

Bulging or herniated discs or misaligned joints can put pressure on nearby nerves and cause back, neck, or leg pain (sciatic nerve pain). The following symptoms may start gradually or suddenly, may be mild or severe, or persist for weeks or months:

Neck pain or stiffness

Upper or lower back pain

Muscle stiffness

Burning sensation

Referred pain in the arms, buttocks, or legs 

Numbness, tingling, or weakness

Sharp or dull pain 

How Chiropractic Spinal Decompression is Performed in Spring, TX 

Spinal decompression is a painless chiropractic procedure that offers natural pain relief. It is performed on a traction table connected to a computer and monitor. During the treatment session, the spine is gently stretched and relaxed at intervals using controlled traction-distraction force. Decompression therapy works by creating a negative pressure within the discs which helps nudge bulging or herniated disc material back into the disc. Decompressing the spine provides pain relief by taking pressure off affected discs, joints, bones, nerves, and soft tissues, such as muscles and connective tissue. Blood and nutrients can now flow back to the spine as it should and help speed up the healing process.
