Spinal Decompression

People suffering from lower-back pain related to damaged discs or degenerative conditions could benefit from Spinal Decompression therapy. Conditions associated with lower-back pain include Protruding Discs, Spinal Stenosis, Sciatica and Arthritis, among others. Medical studies have shown that 86% of ruptured disc patients experienced positive results after treatment with this modality.

Spinal Decompression Treatment:

Treatment will typically consist of placement on a motorized table which will move back and forth, providing traction and relaxation. In many cases, the treatment is completely painless. Furthermore, the best results will typically occur after approximately 8-12 sessions.

Supporting structures can be treated with passive therapies including ice, heat, stimulation, chiropractic adjustments or active rehabilitation to strengthen the spinal musculature. These inclusions assist in the healing process while decreasing the likelihood of future injury.

Spinal Decompression therapy isn’t recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe Osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage. It can be performed after bone fusion surgery or non-fusion surgery. If Spinal Decompression is recommended upon your initial consultation, our providers will then incorporate it in your personalized treatment plan.
