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.

The staff here is great. They have helped me learn the proper exercises and how to strengthen my muscles to move better. Dr. Kim has been gentle and kind. Mikka is an awesome massage therapist, and Jerry is knowledgeable and always encouraging in PT. Yes, there is a lot of paperwork, but once you do it, the information is saved and you can just edit it. I think I’m finally learning some tools to help me change my chronic pain.
Dr. Whitmire was so thorough with mine and my daughter’s appointments. He explained everything so well and was helpful and gave a lot of good feedback and information. Best chiropractor I’ve ever been to!
I have been very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism shown by the staff and physicians at Whitmire Chiropractic. I have been to several other practitioners in the area and I am very relieved to have at last found a chiropractor I can be comfortable to bring my whole family to. I am finally finding relief for shoulder and neck pain that have plagued me for years. I have already referred this office to several of my friends and will continue to do so. Well Done Dr. Whitmire!! The most thorough and well explained doctor I’ve ever met!
Every time I come in I learn something new and I feel stronger and better. All the staff and doctors are truly amazing and friendly. I love this place and highly recommend it to everyone. You guys are amazing thank you. The massage I received for the first time in my 26 year and let me tell you was the best thing in the world.
I had a shooting pain in my lower back that was hindering my ability to work at my usual pace. A friend advised me to see a chiropractor as I had never been to one before. I called Whitmire Chiropractic and told them about my situation. Despite having a very busy schedule, they were able to get me an appointment swiftly. I loved that I was able to complete the necessary paperwork all online before I arrived my appointment. There was no waiting in the lobby. I was on time and walked right in to begin my appointment. Everyone was very polite and helpful. The day after my appointment, they call to see how I was doing and if I had any questions. Excellent Service All Around!
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.
I’ve had physical therapy many times in the past, and visited chiropractors and massage therapists, but the fact that this place combines all three into one location and appointment system is brilliant. The chiropractor himself is very gentle and understanding about my fibromyalgia, which not all chiropractors really understand.
