SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

NON-SURGICAL          NON-INVASIVE         

 

 

SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY IS EFFECTIVE FOR: 

​​

Bulging, or herniated discs

Spinal stenosis

Sciatica

Facet syndrome

Degenerative disc disease

Low back and neck pain

Pain radiating down the arms or legs

 

CLINICAL BENEFITS

          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. 

 

MECHANICAL/PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS
         Decompression of the Spine

Unload spine

Decrease bulging and protruding discs

Separate vertebrae

Decrease pain

Mobilization of the Spine

Stretch ligaments and tendons

Mobilize the capsule, facet joints, and intravertebral discs

Increase range of motion

Increase flexibility

 

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.
