Spinal Decompression

Stop living with pain.

SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapy to relieve chronic and acute back and neck pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries.

Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics, repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress your discs or to slip out of alignment which then applies pressure to your discs.

Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve; and brittleness of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself, which is needed to heal.

Spinal Decompression Treatment is non-invasive and provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a decompression table.The table we use is the ADP 400. The table provides a gentle distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation.

Much like a repetitive stress injury the decompression works in very minute increments. But over time that adds up and lets the disc reshape itself, heal and get the proper flow of nutrients going to fight off brittleness and future injuries.
