Back Pain Relief At It's Best

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a type of motorized system that works by gently stretching the spine to help alleviate lower back & nerve pain. It is a painless and safe treatment that creates a pull on your spine and thus takes pressure off the discs, which are the cushions between the bones.

As a result of decompressing the spine, bulging or herniated discs may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. The pull also creates a negative pressure in the disc, creating a “vacuum-like” effect. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.

If you are suffering from severe low back pain and have tried several therapies with little to no results, spinal decompression may possibly be the answer.

How Do I Know I Qualify?

We understand that each patient’s condition is unique and this is why you must qualify for spinal decompression treatment. You will undergo a complete physical exam and potential medical imaging to determine the exact cause of your pain. Once we confidently determine the cause of your pain, we will create a spinal decompression protocol tailored exactly for your needs.

As a result, each patient is thoroughly examined & qualified before starting treatment. By qualifying patients to determine eligibility, we maintain a high level of success & safety.

If for whatever reason you are not a candidate for spinal decompression, not all is lost as we would recommend the most appropriate form of care for your exact condition.

What Conditions Does It Help For?

Many research studies have been done on the use of non-invasive spinal decompression and it has been shown that spinal decompression does have many benefits. In fact, one studied showed that 92% of patients enrolled in the study had beneficial effects of spinal decompression.

Spinal Decompression has been show to help with the following types of lower back conditions:

    • Sciatica
    • Disc Herniation
    • Disc Bulges
    • Degenerative Disc Disease
    • Spinal Arthritis & Stenosis
    • Nerve Pain

Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Decreasing pain intensity: Many patients have noticed a dramatic decrease in their pain levels after undergoing spinal decompression.

Decreasing nerve pain: Spinal decompression helps to gap your vertebrae, which in turn, creates a negative pressure in the disc and alleviates pressure off the nerves exiting the spine. The pressure off the nerves significantly helps to reduce nerve pain which can potentially cause numbness and tingling.

Decreasing muscle tension: As we are able to precisely treat your area of concern and help induce motion in your joints, this will allow your muscles to finally relax, resulting in finally feeling relief.

Increases in your mobility: As your nerve pain decreases and your muscles get looser, you will notice that you will now be able to move more freely.

What To Expect During Treatment

Watch the following video to understand how a typical low back spinal decompression session is performed and followed through.

Obviously not each treatment is identical as it is customized to your symptoms and exact condition.

The main parameters to determine for your exact condition:

    • Max/Min Pull Tension
    • Hold Time
    • Rest Time
