Spinal decompression is a non-surgical traction type treatment used primarily for bulging and herniated discs in the neck and low back.
Spinal decompression works by gently distracting or tractioning the effected area. Decompression permits the disc material to be pulled back between the spinal bones (vertebra). Also the pre-programmed cycles allow fluids to reenter the compressed disc for additional healing benefits.
Some of the conditions we have helped using spinal decompression include back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, bulging discs, spinal stenosis, neck pain, numbness and tingling to name a few.
Spinal decompression is usually painless and has been FDA cleared for the treatment of back pain.
After a thorough examination, spinal decompression may be prescribed only if warranted for your condition. Treatment time is usually 20 minutes for 8-24 sessions.
