Spinal Decompression Therapy is a new form of traction that gently stretches the spine and the vertebrate. The action expands the space between the vertebrate relieving pressure on the nerves. It works on the back and the neck.

It is an excellent treatment for:

  • Herniated discs
  • Prolapsed discs
  • Bulged Discs
  • Degenerative Disc disease
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for certain types of chronic back or neck pain. Mechanical decompression works by slowly and gently stretching the spine and taking pressure off of compressed discs and vertebrae. Spinal decompression is one of the most exciting medical treatments developed in many years, since it demonstrates good statistical results for long term pain relief.

    The most common spinal condition treated with decompression treatment is a herniated disc. Compression of the spine can cause disc herniations to expand and put pressure on the surrounding spinal nerve roots. Decompression therapy takes the pressure off of these damaged and bulging discs so that they can shrink back closer to their original size.

    Degenerative disc disease is also a common condition treated with decompression therapy. Loss of disc height can be exacerbated by spinal compression, causing the vertebral bodies to move closer together. This can cause nerve compression and other forms of common back and neck pain. Decompression eliminates the overwhelming pressure on degenerated discs reducing or eliminating painful symptoms.

    Facet joint syndrome is another condition that can be treated with spinal decompression. Of all the spinal conditions, this one is the least promising for permanent pain relief. Facet syndrome causes pain due to arthritic changes in the vertebral bones. Decompression helps to create more space between the vertebrae, thus reducing painful symptoms of this condition.
