I have been a patient of Dr. Olsen for several years and this review is long over due! I am a 56 year old plumbing contractor with a variety of past and current injuries and pain, that stem from my active life and my profession. Dr. Olsen is truly amazing! He has provided my treatment and greatly improved all of my aches and pains through the years from headaches, neck pain, back pain, shoulder issues, wrist injuries, knee surgeries and the list goes on. Today, I am still able to work actively in my field and I am very thankful to have a Doctor like Greg caring for me. He also has a wonderful caring staff in his office. Thank you Dr. Olsen for your dedication to your profession and your patients good health!

Spinal Traction Therapy in Lake Forest, CA: Spinal traction therapy (spinal decompression) 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. The goal is to relieve pain and increase functionality in the spine.
Due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge and become herniated or degenerate over time. Once this process begins, pain, limited range of motion and discomfort may occur in the spine and legs. This low-risk treatment is essential for anyone with lower back issues.
Spinal traction can help with the following ailments:
- Back or neck pain
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Degenerative disc disease
- Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
Spinal traction treatment alleviates pressure and elongates the spine, relieving pain and allowing the body to heal faster
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 can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. Creating space and lowering pressure in the spine will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to the discs. These nutrients are important for improving body functions. This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a way you would not be able to at home.
