Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a highly effective solution for low back and neck pain, radiating leg and arm pain, and pain related to degenerative discs and joints. It relieves pain associated with disc herniations, bulging discs, degenerative discs, posterior facets, and other spinal related syndromes.

Conditions that Benefit From Cervical & Lumbar Decompression

  • Herniated Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Arthritis
  • Failed Surgery
  • Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Radiculopathy
  • Headaches

Spinal decompression therapy reduces the pressure on your discs and facet joints through unloading produced by effective positioning and distraction. When this pressure is relieved, circulation will be improved, and the disc will naturally retract toward its normal position thereby reducing pain, inflammation, and nerve irritation. The reduced pressure on the disc will also restore the natural movement of surrounding fluids, nutrients, and oxygen into the disc, a process essential for disc health. Tears in the disc’s wall can now repair themselves while nutrients introduced back into the disc’s nucleus can reverse the disc’s degeneration and its collapse, thereby restoring disc height which relieves pressure on inflamed spinal joints.

Clinical studies suggest that spinal decompression provides most qualified patients with initial relief in just a few sessions.

By enhancing the healing process, most patients can quickly return to a more active lifestyle and avoid the risks of pain medications, anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential for failed back surgery.

As for the procedure, the protocol is usually 3-4 times per week, followed by a reduced frequency of 1-2 times per week, encompassing 20-30 treatments. Each session lasts about 12-15 minutes and other modalities may also be applied, including high-dosage laser, electrical muscle stimulation, or ultrasound which further enhance the healing of the injured tissues. As each patient is unique, after your evaluation, the doctor will determine what treatment protocol is best for you.

Finally, as your treatment progresses and your pain diminishes, your doctor will prescribe specific stretching and strengthening exercises that are designed to help stabilize your spine and promote long-term benefits.

Spinal Decompression Therapy is Clinically Proven

There have been several studies performed that demonstrate the effectiveness of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.

As referenced by Gionis et al., “Results showed that 86% of the 219 patients who completed the therapy reported immediate resolution of symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the 219 patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment.”

Spinal Decompression Therapy has saved many people from spinal surgery and allowed them to return to their regular active lifestyle.
