Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that helps to relieve back and neck pain by gently stretching the spine.
During the procedure for back pain, our doctor will fit a harness around your pelvis and another around your trunk. For neck pain, a harness will be placed around your chest and another on the back of your neck, cradling your head.
You will lie face down or face up on a computer-controlled table. The table will then gently pull and stretch you. During the procedure, you will remain clothed.
What Conditions Can Spinal Decompression Treat?
- Bulging Discs
- Degenerative Discs
- Herniated Discs
- Spinal Stenosis
The gentle pulling of the Spinal Decompression machine can remove pressure from the spine’s nerves, relieving pain. The negative pressure also can increase oxygen and vital nutrients to help the area heal.
Many of our patients enjoy their sessions and look forward to their appointments.
How Long Do Spinal Decompression Sessions Last?
One session of Spinal Decompression can last an average of 30 minutes. The average protocol consists of 12-20 sessions spaced over the course of 4-6 weeks.
Many of our patients experience significant pain relief during their first few sessions. As they progress further in the timeline of their treatment cycle, they find that their pain relief is long-lasting as they start to notice less pain during their daily activities.
Patients can expect the following after their Spinal Decompression sessions:
- Increased mobility
- Increased range of motion
- Reduced stiffness in neck and back
- Reduced pain
