Spinal Decompression

Anyone who experiences discomfort caused by a damaged disc may benefit from Spinal Decompression therapy. Conditions associated with this include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal Stenosis, Sciatica or pinched nerves. Medical studies have shown that 86% of ruptured disc patients experienced positive results after treatment with Spinal Decompression.

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.

Treatment will typically consist of placement on a motorized table which will move back and forth, providing traction and relaxation. In virtually all cases, the treatment is completely painless. The best results are typically occur after approximately 20 sessions over a six-week period.

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.
