Decompression Therapy

 Spinal Decompression Therapy is a very safe and effective, non-surgical treatment for bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, and facet syndromes.  

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a revolutionary new non-surgical treatment used primarily to treat disc injuries in the neck and in the low back. This choice of treatment is very safe and is FDA approved.  Spinal decompression therapy has the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs. This "vacuum effect" is also known as negative intra-discal pressure.

The negative pressure induces the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks, the results are quite dramatic.

The alternating of decompression and partial relaxation facilitates the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These nutrients help the torn and degenerated disc fibers begin to heal.

For the low back, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back  on the decompression table, with a set of padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. For the neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair of soft rubber pads behind the neck. Many patients enjoy the treatment, as it is usually quite comfortable and can be relaxing.
