Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for relieving the following conditions:
- Back Pain
- Disc Bulges & Herniations
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal Arthritis (Osteoarthritis)
- Spinal Stenosis
- Failed Back Surgery
- Numbness and Tingling in Arms and Legs
Spinal Decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine that aids in the healing of damaged discs by reducing internal disc pressure, allowing for the herniated/bulging disc material to retract toward its normal position. The decompression also improves blood flow and increases nutrient exchange to the injured area, which is necessary for healing the disk and surrounding tissues.
During the therapy process, the patient lies on a computer-controlled table and is fitted into a support system consisting of a harness around the pelvis and chest. The computer system adjusts the proper distraction angle which targets the specific spinal discs that are causing you pain. The treatment feels like a pulling sensation as the table stretches and extends the spine to relieve pressure from the discs and joints.
