Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy utilizes a unique equipment designed to gently and effectively reduce disc bulges and disc herniations as well as increase spinal mobility. By applying a targeted pull to the spine with specific angles and calculated weight, spinal decompression therapy causes a 1-2 mm opening of the involved disc. This opening allows for a “vacuum” effect to happen to the bulging/herniated material, and effectively pulls the material back away from the irritated nerve leading to pain relief. Spinal decompression is not traction which has poorer results.

The computerized traction head on the decompression table is the key to the therapy’s effectiveness. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction eliminate muscle guarding and permit decompression to occur at the disc level. This creates a negative pressure within the disc, allowing the protruded or herniated portion to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, which permits healing to occur.

Spinal decompression also allows vital nutrients and blood supply to rush into the disc which helps speed the heeling process. This, combined with our phototherapy, helps to increase healing of the area by over 80% faster.

Low back pain has become an epidemic. It is responsible for the 2nd highest number of visits to the emergency room. Many of these cases are due to bulging/herniated discs. Surgery is the option for many.

Those suffering from spinal pain are generally in pain for many years and have tried conventional remedies including medication, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture or home exercises.

If you suffer from spinal pain and have not had success with other treatment, then the new state-of-the-art spinal decompression therapy is for you or your loved one experiencing:

  • Disc bulging/herniation
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Radicular arm pain
