Spinal Decompression in Rockford, IL: MedPlus Neck and Back Pain Center
Non-invasive Treatment of Back Pain, Disc Injuries, Headaches, Whiplash & More
Spinal Decompression in Rockford, IL: Spinal decompression therapy helps alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine that are between vertebrae. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine using traction table technologies with the goal of relieving pain and increasing functionality in the spine.
Spinal decompression is an effective and non-surgical therapy option:
Due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge and become herniated or degenerate. Once this process begins, there is limited range of motion. Pain and discomfort may also occur in the spine and in the legs. Spinal decompression is a low-risk treatment and a great alternative to surgery. Decompression therapy is effective in treating difficult conditions like sciatic pain and chronic low back pain.
This is a gentle, non-force adjusting approach. The thing that most patients notice first is our special table. The movements of this table help traction the spine, opening up compressed spinal discs and reducing pressure on facet joints of the spine.
Named after its developer, Dr. James Cox, this highly-effective technique combines osteopathic principles with the specific, highly-directed approach used in chiropractic. The combination offers a conservative resolution of low back and leg pain that often averts the need for surgery.
The Cox Flexion-Distraction technique we use gives us the ability to place spinal joints in a more normal motion and position without pain or aggravating your condition.
By lying on the table, neutralizing the effects of gravity, we’re able to gently separate spinal joints and move them through a more normal range of motion. Patients find this surprisingly pleasant. We find it powerfully effective.
Our patients experience relief from:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Bulging and Herniated Discs
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Worn Spinal Joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or Diseased Spinal Nerve Roots
Spinal decompression alleviates pressure and elongates the spine:
Spinal decompression at MedPlus Neck and Back Pain Center is nonsurgical and painless. The specialized treatment involves stretching of the spine and can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. It works by creating space and lowering pressure in the discs. It causes an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into 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 the patient can’t do at home. After spinal decompression, patients will feel elongated and relaxed. Other therapies may be combined with spinal decompression such as massage, acupuncture, diet recommendations and exercises depending on the patient.

At MedPlus my doctor used a technique using the Cox Flexion-Distraction table. It was so superior to the treatment I received using other forms of spinal decompression previously. The major difference is the treatment is administered by the doctor treating me rather than a computer programmed machine. Today I am pain free because of the superior care given to me from the staff of MedPlus. Thanks again for all you've done for me.
