Many people with Back Pain, Neck Pain and Carpal Tunnel are asking, “What is Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy?”


Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-chiropractic therapy to relieve back pain, neck pain and other spinal disc injury related problems.


Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics, repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress your discs or to slip out of alignment which then applies pressure to your discs.


Compressed discs lead to two major problems: 1) a bulge or Herniation pressing on a nerve, 2) degeneration or hardening of the disc. The problem is often made worse because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself which is needed to heal.


Traditional corrective treatments include surgery or chiropractic adjustment. Spinal Decompression Therapy is an alternative FDA approved treatment option that has shown very good results - often as good as 86% success. Imagine if this treatment is combined with chiropractic, PT and core strengthening how good the results could be!


Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Treatment is non-invasive and provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a decompression table. You are strapped to the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine where the compressed disc is located.


A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls the spine apart elongating it and creating a small vacuum between the vertebrae which pulls the disc back into shape.


Much like a repetitive stress injury the decompression works in very minute increments that add up over time and lets the disc reshape itself, heal and get the proper flow of nutrients going to fight off brittleness and future injuries.
