Spinal decompression is a leading non-surgical answer for disc related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine. Decompression therapy utilizes sophisticated FDA certified equipment that gently stretches the spine, taking the pressure off the discs and joints, enhancing the natural healing process and improving blood flow and nutrients exchange in the injured area. The stretching graduates over several minutes to gently stretch the soft tissue and then relax. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation during your therapy session. Sessions usually last less than 20 minutes.
Treatments are gentle and based on the comfort of the patient. It is a pain-free solution that has shown a very high rate of reducing or eliminating back or neck pain. There is no downtime for treatment with spinal decompression and no drugs are involved.
Spinal decompression is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage. Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or "cages" is also contraindicated. However, spinal decompression therapy can safely be performed after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery.
