SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY IS EFFECTIVE FOR:
Bulging, or herniated discs
Degenerative disc disease
Low back and neck pain
Pain radiating down the arms or legs
Research points to the beneficial effects of traction because it can distract joint surfaces, reduce protrusions of nuclear discal material, stretch soft-tissue muscles and mobilize joints. These effects provide many patients with pain relief from spinal dysfunction. The stimulation of sensory mechanoreceptors that occurs with the application of traction may also gate pain transmission.
Decompression of the Spine
Decrease bulging and protruding discs
Mobilization of the Spine
Stretch ligaments and tendons
Mobilize the capsule, facet joints, and intravertebral discs
Increase range of motion
WHAT TO EXPECT
Spinal decompression therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 1-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues.
SEE IF SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY IS RIGHT FOR YOU
Spinal decompression is often recommended as an alternative treatment for pain. It is proven to be beneficial but it is necessary to get evaluated to see if you are a potential candidate for this treatment.
