Spinal Decompression Therapy

How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?

Spinal Decompression works by gently lengthening and releasing the spine through repetitive movements. As the table pulls and releases, a negative pressure change is created within the intervertebral discs, surrounding soft tissue, and spinal joints. The reduction of pressure inside the disc allows a disc bulge or herniation to be pulled back into the disc. Rehydration of the disc and surrounding structures creates a physiological change which decreases pain levels and assists the body’s natural healing process. Spinal Decompression Therapy can be beneficial in treating conditions such as:

  • Cervical Neuropathy
  • Lumbar Neuropathy
  • Sciatica
  • Low Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Tension Headaches
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Failed Back Surgery
  • Arm/Leg Pain and Numbness
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Facet Syndrome

How Long is a Spinal Decompression Session?

Spinal Decompression Therapy Sessions can range from 12-20 minutes, with the average session typically lasting 15 minutes. 16 sessions are recommended in order to determine the effectiveness of the Spinal Decompression Therapy, as well as to receive the maximum benefit from your treatments. In addition, for accelerated healing, Spinal Decompression Therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies used in the office, as well as with your regular chiropractic adjustments.
