Spinal Decompression Therapy

This FDA cleared technology relieves pain by enlarging the space between the discs. The negative pressure created by the therapy releases pressure that builds on to the disc and nerves, allowing the herniated and bulging disc to eventually go back into normal position. Intervertebral disc decompression is the only treatment that is truly most effective for severe cases of herniation, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on the nerve root. According to a clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technological Review in 2004, said that 86% of all cases experienced spinal pain relief with disc decompression.

Spinal Decompression therapy is a safe, non- surgical and drug free treatment method for patients who suffer from chronic neck and back pain caused by disc problems and other spinal related conditions. A decompression treatment gently lengthens and releases the spine through repetitive movements by the Spinal Decompression table. As the table pulls and releases, a negative pressure change is created within the intervertebral disc, surrounding soft tissue and spinal joints. The reduction of pressure inside the disc (decompression) allows the disc bulge or herniation and the nutrients to be pulled back into the disc. Rehydration of the disc and surrounding structures creates a physiological change which decreases pain levels and assists the body’s natural healing process. Patients typically experience significant improvement after several treatments. Research shows that continued improvement is seen up to 4 years following the Spinal Decompression Therapy program.

Who can benefit from spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy may be a great choice for those battling constant back pain. You might like it if you are seeking a gentle, safe way to find chiropractic relief without resorting to surgery. This treatment can be effective for several conditions, including sciatica pain and ruptured or herniated discs. It also helps with posterior facet syndrome, injured spinal roots, arthritis and spinal stenosis. Additionally, people who have had a failed back surgery in the past might find relief from spinal decompression.

While nonsurgical spinal decompression is generally considered safe, several conditions disqualify potential patients from this treatment.

These include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Metal spine implants
  • Advanced osteoporosis

What a spinal decompression session is like

When arriving at the chiropractic office for a spinal decompression session, the chiropractor fits a harness around your pelvis and trunk. You will be asked to lay down on a lumbar decompression table that uses motorized traction to reposition the spine. The chiropractor will control the lower portion of the table while the upper portion remains motionless.

Unlike other chronic back pain treatment options that might cause pain and discomfort during the procedure, spinal decompression therapy should never hurt. Instead, you will feel pressure and a pulling sensation during the session. The computerized table has sensors that can tell what muscles are beginning to tense or resist stretching. These help the chiropractor easily adjust the amount of pressure necessary to get the desired results. Most offices set up a very relaxing environment for patients to make the process as comfortable as possible.

A single spinal decompression session will take approximately 30 minutes. Typically, more than one session is necessary for you to reap all the benefits of this procedure. You can expect to have anywhere from 15 to 30 sessions within a period of four to six weeks.
