FAQs on Spinal Decompression

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapy that is used to treat multiple disorders of the spinal column. Decompression heals spinal discs and relieves pain.

Specific problems addressed by this therapy include: 

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Disc injury
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Traveling pain down the leg or arm
  • Headaches
  • Neck/low back pain

Spinal Decompression Benefits

Spinal Decompression therapy has been medically proven to reduce pain and alleviate symptoms and conditions related to:

  • Herniated/Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Discs
  • Chronic Neck/Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Radiculopathy
  • Arthritis or Facet Syndrome
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Pre/Post Surgical Patients

Why Should I Consider Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Damaged discs seldom heal on their own, as the discs are constantly under pressure. Spinal decompression therapy is designed to correct the problem, not just treat the symptoms. Consider the following stats on spinal decompression care compared with traditional surgery:

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

This type of therapy makes use of what is called a Spinal Decompression Table. The Decompression Table is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause pain, and facilitate in the natural healing of discs. With precise and painless computer-controlled tension, the specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the pressure inside the disc. The Decompression Table also promotes the transfer of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen back inside the discs, and results in the retraction of bulging or herniated discs, providing relief of nerve pressure and pain.

What Will Treatment Be Like?

The patient is positioned fully clothed on the table and comfortably secured. The table section will be electronically tilted, so that spinal segments can be targeted. The treatment is comfortable, and some patients fall asleep. Patients typically spent 30 minutes on the decompression table.

When Will I See Results?

Most patients will find relief of their symptoms between 5 and 10 sessions while the average recommended course of treatment is 20 sessions. Ideally, the treatments are performed daily with a rest on the weekend. Most patients are able to return to normal levels of activity or recreation in just a few weeks time.

At the end of a treatment series, when the disc injury has been corrected, patients are given strengthening exercises to avoid repeat injury. After only a few weeks of treatment, research has shown amazing results in relieving the debilitating pain caused by degenerative, bulging, herniated or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and many failed back surgery cases.
