Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression in Salem, OR: Spinal decompression therapy is a treatment that helps alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine that are between vertebrae. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving pain and increasing functionality in the spine.
Spinal decompression is non-invasive and effective:
Over time, due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge, become herniated or degenerate. Once this process begins, pain, limited range of motion and discomfort may occur in the spine and in the legs. This low-risk treatment is essential for anyone with lower back issues.
Our patients experience relief from:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Bulging discs, 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:
After Spinal Decompression, patients will feel elongated and relaxed. Other therapies may be combined with spinal decompression, such as diet recommendations and exercises depending on the patient.
Spinal Decompression in Salem, OR is nonsurgical and painless. The specialized treatment involves stretching of the spine and can improve posture, flexibility and daily living.

This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a different way that the patient would be unable to do at their home.
Spinal decompression can be the solution:

Dr. Whitmire did a great job when I went to see him for some low back pain. He was very knowledgeable and helped me to get pain free quickly. I have recommended him and his clinic to family and friends.
The Doctor and Staff are welcoming and very informative. I tend to ask a lot of questions and they always answer my as best as possible. It’s nice to go to a doctor that really wants to get their patients better. I highly recommend JP for anyone seeking chiro!
I recommend this office to anyone who is in pain. I call Dr Whitmire my miracle worker. He always makes sure that I know exactly what he is doing and why. I get more information from him than I do with ANY other doctor in ANY field Ive ever been to! I love the office staff as well. It’s kind of like a big family. And the massages are to die for. Seriously folks…… If you need a chiropractor…….you cannot do better than Dr Whitmire!!!!
This is the best experience I have had with a chiropractor. The doctor explained everything he was doing very thoroughly and professionally and helped me to understand why I was experiencing certain aches and pains and how I could alleviate those using massage and stretching techniques on my own. I felt comfortable and safe in this clean and friendly environment and will definitely be back for weekly follow up! I already feel so much better after my first appointment today. Highly recommend Dr. Whitmire and is team at the clinic!
In the spring of 2014 I began visiting Dr. Whitmire for treatment of Migraine headaches. After a thorough evaluation he adjusted my neck bringing immediate relief of pain and Migraine symptoms. My primary care physician at the time only prescribed narcotic pain medication and told me to come back when my prescription ran out. The migraines were so frequent that I had to choose between being incapacitated by the migraines or the narcotics. After only a few visits with Dr. Whitmire the frequency of my migraines began to subside and I was able to quit taking the narcotics all together. In the fall of 2014 I was in a motorcycle accident. I landed in a jackknife position on the small of my back. After an Urgent care visit, X-Rays, and a new prescription for narcotics, my primary care physician suggested seeing a surgeon and said that there was little he could do but continue prescribing pain medication. Again I visited Dr. Whitmire. After another thorough assessment he adjusted my spine. The treatments required many visits and adjustments, but Dr. Whitmire was persistent and consistent in providing care. It took 6 months for me to fully recover from my injuries. Without Dr. Whitmire’s help, I would probably still be recovering today. Dr. Whitmire always takes the time to listen and and answer questions. His gift for healing has blessed my life.
40 yrs of MIGRAINES have taught me that if I start with a ‘aura’ then a massive headache will follow and nothing but medication and time will take it away. However, I was in Salem the other day and started with an aura and I did not have my imitrex medication with me. I asked Dr. Whitmire if he could try to do something. He worked with me, doing a few different things. Then I took 10 minutes laying down with a hotpack….and AMAZINGLY …I avoided a full-blown migraine. Dr. Whitmire taught me a certain point to press and how to rotate my head…..and so far, I’ve stopped the progression of ‘aura to migraine’ 3 more times. Love this place!!! If you suffer from migraines I highly recommend that you try it out.
I’ve been so skeptical of chiropractic work until I talked with Dr. Whitmore. He has may years of education, practice, experience, and most of all he has people skills. He offers his patients information about what the treatment is, how it’s applied, what benefits there are, and an open mind. His knowledge of sports medicine really takes his work to the next level for patients with severe injuries. I would recommend his office to everyone.
Love these people and everything they do. They are amazing and listen to all your needs.
I can grip my reins & ride my horse w/ more confidence!
