What Is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression involves the use of motorized traction equipment that delivers transformative back pain relief, greater mobility, and improved quality of life.

This medical applied methodology acts with a gentle, very controlled stretch of the spinal structure. This gentle stretch alters the forces being applied at certain points of the spine and improves the position of the spinal components.

The negative pressure that is created reduces the pressure on the spinal disks (cushions between the vertebra of the spine) and increases the chance of bulging or herniated disks retracting. It also reduces or removes any pressure presenting on the nerves within the spinal structure. This instant physiological result enhances the ability of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen to flow into the disks, allowing the body to self-heal.

What Can Spinal Decompression Treat?

Nonsurgical spinal decompression has been used to successfully treat conditions such as:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Various degrees of sciatica
  • Bulging or herniated disks
  • Disk degenerations
  • Worn spinal joints
  • Injured nerve roots
  • Diseases of nerve roots

Decompression can be used in conjunction with a multi-modality treatment plan that could include:

  • Chiropractic
  • Physiotherapy
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs (non-steroidal)
  • Steroid injections
  • Stretching exercises
  • Rest periods
  • Abdomen Braces
  • Dry needling

How Is Spinal Decompression Done?

You are fully clothed during spinal decompression therapy. Your dedicated medical professional will fit you with a pelvis and abdomen harness over your clothing. You will be guided to lie down on your back or front side, subject to the treatment requirements, on a motorized table. The doctor will operate the gentle decompression in a treatment that is fully tailored to your needs and condition.

A decompression session can last up to forty-five minutes, and treatment may be required three times a week for up to eight weeks. You can enhance decompression treatment results by having physiotherapy treatment, electrical current stimulus, ultrasound, and other complementary therapies.
