Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive and effective treatment for herniated, bulging or degenerated discs and very often has been an alternative to back or neck surgery. It simply performs traction but at an angle which targets the diseased disc level. This allows herniated or bulging discs to retract, allowing water and nutrients to infiltrate the discs to speed up the body’s natural healing process. When getting the treatment, you can expect to feel a very gentle stretch along your back or neck. The treatment on the machine is about 30 minutes and you can expect to be in our office about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Due to the gentle nature of the machine and its effectiveness many patients start to feel pain relief for the first time while getting this treatment.

Most patients find the therapy very relaxing and some even find immediate pain relief during the session. Success rates are very high, with up to 86% of patients feeling alleviated pain by the end of treatment. For many of our patients, the care of a back surgeon is also avoided, another success on its own.

You may be a good candidate for our decompression machine if you suffer from sciatica, herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, or chronic or lingering back or neck pain. Many of our patients have had persistent pain from nerve compression or pinched nerves that did not resolve despite past treatments. They have found spinal decompression therapy can help get rid of its associated pain and discomfort by stretching the spine to take the pressure off the nerves, thus alleviating the associated pain it brings.
