Spinal Decompression Therapy
This is done by producing a controlled, mechanical traction on the spine using our Decompression Table. During the pull phase, injured discs are gently stretched apart, producing a suction force inside the disc. This draws disc bulges and herniations back into the center of the disc along with oxygen, water, nutrients, and other essential healing substances. If the decompression is successful, the disc remains healthy even after the treatment is finished.
How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work: Spinal Decompression Therapy is a gentle non-surgical treatment that works by restoring proper function to an injured spinal disc.
How long does each session last?: Therapy sessions typically last less than 15 minutes and most patients feel pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. It is important to remember, however, that pain reduction does not necessarily mean that your discs and spine are healed, so it is critical that patients stick with the treatment protocol prescribed by their practitioners in order to achieve the full value of the treatment.
I have had spinal surgery, but continue to have pain; can Spinal Decompression help?: Spinal decompression therapy can help some people with back pain after failed spinal surgery. It can be performed in most patients who have not been left with an unstable spine after surgery.
