What Does Spinal Disc Decompression Treat?

This treatment method decompresses compressed nerves, discs and muscles through body positioning, traction and distraction. Employing this therapy has been demonstrated to relieve pain resulting from herniated discs, degenerative spinal discs and facet joint syndrome. The movement during a treatment session encourages an increased passage of healing nutrients into the affected disc to allow for quicker, less painful healing.

What Happens During Spinal Decompression?

The patient will lay on a motorized table where the lower half of the table is mobile. The
combination of stability and movement by the table will stretch the spine, relieving pain and promoting a healthy back.

Patients lay on the specially designed table, and a harness is wrapped around his or her hips. The harness is attached to the mobilized foot of the table. The upper part of the table will remain static while the mobile portion will move back and fourth stimulating the spine through traction and relaxation.

How Does It Work?

Spinal decompression therapy utilizes many of the same principles of spinal traction that have been popularized by chiropractors for years. Decompression and traction relieve pain and assist in the healing of bulging or degenerative spinal discs. The movement of the table retracts and prepositions the spine to create negative intradiscal pressure that repositions the discs. In addition, the movements can also reduce pressure on your spine and spinal discs, allowing nutrients to reach the affected area for better healing.
