Spinal Decompression in San Antonio TX: 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 a Non-Invasive Treatment to Decrease Pain at our Chiropractic Center
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.
Spinal Decompression can help with the following ailments:
- Back or neck pain
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
Spinal Decompression Treatment 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.
It is nonsurgical and painless. There are various kinds of surgical spinal decompression but they are usually classified as a laminectomy or a microdiscectomy. This specialized treatment that involves stretching of the spine can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. Creating space and lowering pressure in the discs will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to the disc that are important for improving functions of the body. This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a different way that you would be unable to do at home.

First visit for cronic, acute back pain. Dr. Oliver was able to determine the root cause of the pain which, I must say, other doctors I’ve seen hadn’t even attempted to find.
I have spondylolesthesis (a forward shifting of a vertebrae) which allows diminished mobility and flexibility because of the level of constant pain. Yes, the shift caused discs to rupture and touch a nerve. The nerve (being only the transmitting link to the brain for feeling) however, goes to something else telling the nerve what to feel.
That “something else” is the CAUSE of the pain. In my case, it is a specific muscle attached to the spine.
I would recommend coming here! I have had headaches for over a decade. I would go to doctor after doctor and explain to them that I don’t simply want pills thrown at the problem. I never felt listened to. I didn’t feel like these doctors were on my side. They never seemed to want to help me find the problem, instead they just wanted to help me manage the symptoms. I don’t believe it’s natural or right to be in pain every day of your life, so managing the symptoms was not a desirable solution for me. Then I came across Charles Oliver and his staff. He immediately caught my attention when he talked to me about getting to the root of the problem. I love his holistic approach. And the best part is that he is listening to me. I finally feel like I have someone rooting for me and actively helping me heal rather than just managing my symptoms. He did a comprehensive evaluation and x-rays. He showed me step-by-step what was wrong and how it could be fixed. I absolutely love his approach. Thank you so much Charles Oliver and staff! I would 100% recommend coming to this business. In fact, I already have told friends and family how much this is helping me and I’ve recommended they make appointments as well.
I also talked to Dr. Oliver about my knee pain. He has been treating the pain I’ve had in my left knee. I’ve had the pain for 2.5 years. It got to the point where I had to wear a knee brace the majority of the time because it hurt to walk. Since Dr. Oliver has been treating my knee the pain is gone. It is uncomfortable from time to time but it is no longer painful. During my knee treatment there was even a time I was not able to go back to the chiropractor for a month. During that month away from treatment my knee pain did not return. I am in awe at how quickly he is able to make pain go away with his treatments.
I originally visited Integrative Medical for issues I was having with my back. After 3 sessions I felt the staff was just throwing me on a massage bed and had me do silly excericises similar to what I did in elementary school for stretches. I had explained my issues to a friend and she recommended me to try out Dr. Oliver. From the minute I walked in Dr. Oliver’s Office, I felt the staff seemed more professional. Dr. Oliver had up to date X-ray equipment that was more detailed oriented. He explained and showed more details to what was my problem with my back than what I got from Integrative Medical. Dr. Oliver would pop my neck and back into place, had me do more challenging excersises that actually strengthened my back, and had more state of the art equipment to treat people with. Needless to say, I left Integrative Medical to continue and complete my 30 sessions with Dr. Oliver. I felt more welcomed as well as more confident in what I was getting from Dr. Oliver than Integrative Medical. I would reccommend Dr. Oliver to any of my personal friends and family.
First visit. So far so good. Dr was very direct on what he could to and could not do. Told him my main concern was cost, he said he understood and could work with me. Front desk staff very friendly. Took me on a brief tour, offered water and was concerned of my needs. For a first visit I would say it was a excellent experience.
Dr. Oliver is awesome! I came to see him with a running injury, and after a few visits he had me running pain free again!
When I first met Dr. Oliver, I was suffering from sharp pain that traveled down my arms from my neck. After a diagnosis and commitment to try to get better, I began a full regimen of exercise and adjustments. I found the information about the seriousness of my condition very informative and encouraging. Dr. Oliver not only explained the treatments that were going to take place, but gave me the opportunity to ask questions without pressure. It wasn’t long after the meeting and a scheduled plan of treatment that I had my first visit with Dr. Charles Oliver. I have become a believer that with a commitment to doing the prescribed exercises and getting regular adjustments, that you can reverse your back pain and feel normal again. After some weeks of treatment, I can honestly state that the pain is gone from my neck to my shoulders. I have also noticed that my sitting posture is less cumbersome and my overall bodily flexibility has improved by 100%. Everyone assisting the doctor does a great job with stretching and massage. Everyone is very helpful and makes sure I always have the best experience possible. So much so that I don’t want to leave! And they work with me when it comes to scheduling since I have to rearrange a lot of times as to when I can come in. I’m glad I went and grateful for the care and treatment from Dr. Oliver and the staff at Comprehensive. Overall, signing up for regular chiropractic appointments was the push that I needed to propel me into the total package of healthy living. Comprehensive Chiropractic is my one stop shop for healthy living. I have a community to learn with, a community to challenge me, and a committed team to help me reach my health goals.
I was referred to Dr. Oliver after a neck injury. I had never endured such pain to my neck to where I couldn’t lift a grocery bag. NO matter what my posture was (sitting, standing, laying down), I was in lots of pain. When I called I was concerned they wouldn’t have time to fit me in. Once I explained my situation and pain they had me wait a day for swelling to go down then to come in the next day. I could tell that he “fit” me in cause he was very busy. He still took the time to give me a full evaluation, The staff was amazing and friendly too, Even though I was in pain they could still make you smile. After a week of following Dr. Oliver’s instructions, I was back to normal! I would refer him to any one!!! Thank you Dr. Oliver and Staff
I have had chronic headaches and neck pain since early childhood. I have been to 6 chiropractor’s in my life. Some gave me temporary relief of pain but they never took care of the underlying problem. In 2016, I learned about Dr. Oliver who is a Physical Therapist & a Chiropractor. I started going to see him and through his complete and thorough approach he is changing the curves in my spine. I rarely have a headache and only periodic neck pain when I haven’t done the exercises he taught me. I feel empowered that I can now do something to help myself! Recieving care from Dr. Oliver, who is both skilled and friendly, has been life changing for me. I write this review in hopes that others may find lasting relief for yourselves through Dr. Oliver’s complete approach.
Doctor Oliver and his staff are wonderful! I would recommend him to everyone.
