If you or someone you know suffers from back pain, neck pain, sciatica caused by a bulging or herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, or facet joint syndrome, it is likely you’ve heard of “non-surgical spinal decompression.” Spinal decompression in Coeur d'Alene ID is a treatment method used to stimulate the body’s natural repair mechanism – specifically by engaging the necessary building blocks to repair and mend injured and degenerative discs in the vertebrae. Many patients like to turn to spinal decompression therapy because they can get relief without drugs, injections or the intervention of surgery. We offer the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Bulging Discs
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Sciatica (leg pain)
  • Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Post-Surgical Pain


At our clinic in Coeur d'Alene ID, we utilize the DOC Decompression system for our spinal decompression treatments. DOC Decompression is currently one of the most sophisticated, true three-dimensional decompression system on the market to treat chronic neck and back pain.
The DOC Decompression system, and other systems like it, work by slowly lengthening and decompressing the spine. These movements cause negative pressures within the disc. This type of pressure then creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and protruding disc material back into place. Ultimately, the goal is to realign the spinal discs, allow nutrients and oxygen to flow back into damaged or injured discs, take pressure off any pinched nerves that have been affected, and relieve the patient’s pain.

How is Stenosis in Coeur d'Alene ID Treated?

Typically, spinal stenosis is treated with conservative non-surgical therapies. One important therapy is exercise. Keeping the muscles of the hip, back, and legs stretched and strengthened allows for improved stability and will improve walking. Medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) also may be appropriate and helpful in pain relief. Cortisone injections into the area around the spinal cord, may provide temporary relief to people suffering from this disorder however, steroid shots do come with risks.

Under severe and rare circumstances, surgery to correct this disorder may be appropriate. A popular surgery is a laminectomy where they remove the lamina of the vertebra and remove the build-up of bone spurs or increased bone mass in the spinal canal. This can free up space for the nerves and the spinal cord. However, the risks versus rewards should always be assessed and all conservative options should be exhausted first.

If Spinal Stenosis is caused or exacerbated by a herniated or bulging disc then Spinal Decompression may be very effective. Spinal Decompression creates a negative pressure inside of the discs which helps draw in herniations and bulges. Once these are drawn in the pressure is taken off of the nerves and the pain, numbness and tingling will subside.

Consult your physician to determine which therapy will benefit your diagnosis the most.
