Harris Chiropractic offers state of the art Spinal Decompression with the Hill Laboratories AIRFLEX II automatic flexion distraction table. Dr. Jeff Harris is a certified decompression therapy practitioner in Middleton, ID.  


Some of the typical symptoms our candidates for decompression therapy at Harris Chiropractic are: 


  • Leg pain

  • Chronic low back pain that has been present for years

  • Previous surgical attempts to free them of pain without success

  • Radiating pain into glutes, lower back, or hips

  • Neck pain

  • Frequent headaches (3 or more per week)

  • Radiating pain into shoulders, arms, or hands 


Spinal Decompression Therapy is FDA cleared and has been clinically proven for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs even after failed surgery.  It is a non-surgical, computerized traction therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. 

The key difference between regular traction and Spinal Decompression Therapy is the computer. It controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression that eliminates muscle guarding which is typical in conventional traction devices. 


The discs of the spine receive nourishment through blood vessels until approximately the age of 20. At this point, the disc has been filled with a lifetime supply of nourishment. However, the disc has to make that supply of nourishment last for the rest  of the lifespan. Through aging. and with normal wear and tear, we use the nourishment causing us all to experience a slow degeneration of the discs of the spine.  This is normal aging. The more "stress" you put on the disc, the more you use up the nourishment, the disc weakens and deteriorates, which can create a problem. 


The picture above shows a herniated disc.  Some people are confused between a herniated disc and a bulging disc. A disc can bulge without herniating. When the jelly- like nucleus pulposis is under pressure, it can bulge. When the pressure is excessive, it can herniate (rupture) through the outer band of tissue called the annulus fibrosis. As the "herniated" disc material spills out, it can put pressure on nerves, causing pain and accompanying weakness of the muscles involved. 


Since offering this new, state-of-the-art therapy at our clinic in Boise, we are finding spinal decompression is having fantastic results. This has been especially true for our chronic low back pain patients.
