The Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy


As the weather gets warmer, it is increasingly more enticing to get outside and be more active. But your back hurts and you find yourself limited with the outdoor activity you can participate in. Before spending an entire summer with back pain, you should consider contacting Earley Wellness to evaluate if Spinal Decompression Therapy may be able to help you.

Research shows that more than 80 percent of people experience back pain at some point in their lives. The discomfort from back pain can be disruptive to a person’s everyday life. If you are experiencing pain in the lower back that radiates pain in your arm, you may have a herniated disc that is compressing your nerve. To relieve the pressure in the nerve that is causing the back pain, Deb Earley can perform Spinal Decompression Therapy to provide relief.

Spinal decompression can provide benefits to those who are suffering from lower back pain and neck pain.  In acupuncture, spinal decompression is achieved by addressing the Huatuojiaji Points. This is the most effective way to quickly and efficiently address issues with your spine.

Huatuojiaji Points

Huatuojiaji points are motor points of the paraspinal musculature. Because of the relationship between the deep paraspinal muscles, their innervation and their effect on the vertebrae, Huatuojiaji Points are useful when treating the spine. By utilizing one needle on each side of the spine, this releases the pressure to decompress the spine. It is an easy procedure that relieves pain quickly and effectively from a compressed disc or pinched nerve.   Huatuojiaji Points were discovered by Dr. Hua Tuo, a Chinese acupuncturist, when he made the link of how the spine communicates with the body’s extremities.

By using acupuncture techniques to stimulate Huatuojiaji Points, you are addressing the problem at the source. 

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression is a type of therapy applied to the spine to which creates a negative intradiscal pressure, which then makes space between the spine. When more space is created, a herniated or bulging disc then can reposition or retract. Also, creating lower pressure in the disc will promote an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc.
