Spinal Decompression Q & A

Spinal Decompression for Chronic Low Back and Neck Pain

Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat lower back pain, neck pain resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. Decompression not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles. There are no drugs, needles or surgery involved.

It offers relief from chronic cases such as:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Bulging Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Stenosis
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Improves disc height from disc degeneration
  • Pain management
  • Failed Lumbar Surgical Syndrome
  • Neuromuscular Reeducation
  • Spondylolisthesis Anterior and Posterior

How Does Spinal Decompression work?

Spinal Decompression provides relief to chronic back and neck pain sufferers by painlessly reducing the pressure that builds up on spinal discs and nerves. The vertebrae of the spine are slowly tractioned during Decompression therapy. As the vertebrae are gently separated pressure is slowly reduced within the disc until a negative pressure vacuum is formed. This vacuum pulls the body's own natural healing nutrients into the injured area and has even been shown to reduce the size of an existing disc bulge or disc herniation. The resulting disc bulge reduction removes pressure off the spinal nerves and significantly reduces pain and disability.

When the ligaments that hold disc material in place become stretched or torn due to bulging and herniation, decompression strengthens the ligament bands that hold the disc material in place to heal & prevent future recurrence.

How Many Treatments are Necessary and What Other Therapies are Offered?

Each person is unique and treated according to their individual goals. Healing is dependent upon the severity of the condition. Additional therapies may include:

  • Exercise rehabilitation
  • Stretching and flexibility education
  • Myofascial release techniques
  • Nutritional and Metabolic support
