WHAT IS IT?

Spinal decompression is for individuals that have neck and low back pain due to spinal disc disease.  Patients with sciatica, bulging herniated discs, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, radiating pain, headaches, and failed back surgery have utilized this treatment modality yielding high success. Individuals that are looking for conservative treatment for back pain and want to avoid surgical intervention seek out this treatment as it has a 70 to 90% rate of effectiveness. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The patient is placed on a table (see above) and the doctor operates the computer and adjusts the patient’s position each visit to a customized treatment of the spinal segment involved. Gradual traction begins and provides negative pressure in the disc allowing healthy healing to take place. This painless therapy usually last for 30 to 45 minutes with other treatment therapies that occur prior to the decompression therapy.  It typically takes 20 to 30 visits over a period of 5 to 7 weeks to complete the spinal decompression system however many patients experience relief in the first visit.
