What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical treatment that gently stretches the spine using a specialized traction table with the goal of relieving pain. During treatment, the table slowly takes pressure off the injured area by decompressing and lengthening the spine.
Therapeutic Effects of Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression helps to retract or recalibrate herniated or bulging disc material by creating negative pressure within the disc. This pressure allows for a greater flow of oxygen, fluids, and nutrients to the area to promote healing. It can encourages vertebral joint mobility to maintain health of the spine.

How Does It Work?
During a treatment, the patient lays on the table face down, face up, or on their side attached by belts for approximately 15 to 20 minutes per session. The mechanical table works to stretch the spine with controlled increments of pressure and time based on the individual and their condition. Multiple treatments are usually recommended although many patients experience measurable relief after a handful of initial sessions.
