Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that is most effective for severe cases of disc herniation, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on the nerve root. It’s an amazing healthcare technology providing a greater than 80% success rate!
Spinal Decompression Therapy has two functions:
The first function is to “suck in” disc herniations or bulges. As the Spinal Decompression table pulls, the space between the vertebrae increases. This space between the vertebrae is occupied by spongy gelatinous disc, and as this space increases a negative pressure is formed in the center of the disc causing a “suction effect” that draws in herniations or bulges within the disc. When the bulge or herniation is drawn in pressure is taken off the “pinched” nerve.
The second function of Spinal Decompression is to thicken and heal the disc. As the Decompression table pulls, the space between the vertebrae consecutively increases and decreases, setting up a “pump effect” that rushes nutrients, blood and oxygen into the disc, and forces wastes out of the disc – this heals and strengthens the disc and increases disc thickness.
No, in fact most of our patients fall asleep on the table. We have created a comfortable and soothing environment for you to relax and enjoy your treatments.
Patients typically receive 10-30 sessions of decompression therapy. Treatment plans are customized for each patient`s condition.
We`ll sit down and discuss your complete case. I`ll also do an exam so I can learn more about your particular condition.
No, traction and inversion tables are different. A Spinal Decompression table pulls in a logarithmic way that causes the small muscles of the spine to relax so the disc can decompress. MRI studies comparing traction to Spinal Decompression Therapy have shown that only Spinal Decompression Therapy pulls herniated discs back in.
