Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical treatment that involves stretching your spine on a motorized traction table. While you lie on the table, it moves and stretches your spine in a precise way according to your customized treatment plan. This relieves pressure on your spine, reduces disc herniation, and creates space for oxygen and nutrients to flow in.

At Farabaugh Chiropractic, Dr. Stefan uses the most technologically advanced equipment for spinal decompression therapy. This allows him to treat a wide range of painful conditions, including complex problems that don’t improve with other treatments like medications or injections.

What is the DRS Protocol?

The DRS Protocol is a trademarked treatment approach that uses spinal decompression in combination with other therapies. The letters DRS stand for decompression, reduction, and stabilization. Dr. Stefan uses this safe and effective protocol to create a drug-free, nonsurgical treatment plan customized to your needs.

What does the DRS Protocol treat?

The DRS Protocol effectively relieves pain related to complex and chronic problems with spinal discs. Dr. Stefan uses the DRS Protocol to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Sciatica
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Failed back and neck surgeries

The DRS Protocol can also relieve symptoms like numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, legs, and feet.

How does the DRS Protocol work?

Spinal discs are the rubbery pads in between each of your spinal bones (vertebrae). These discs contain a soft, gel-like substance surrounded by thicker cartilage. A disc is herniated when some of the inner gel protrudes through the outer layer. 

Herniated discs that press on spinal nerves are a common cause of back pain, neck pain, and sciatica. The DRS Protocol treats these problems by reducing pressure on the disc. 

When you get decompression therapy, the table gently and painlessly stretches your spine. This creates a vacuum-like effect that causes the displaced material to return to its normal position inside the disc. Spinal decompression also promotes water, oxygen, and other healing properties to enter the space.
