How is Spinal Decompression Therapy Done?

You are fully clothed during spinal decompression therapy.  Your health care provider fits you with two harnesses and you lie down on the computer-controlled table.  The computer settings are then customized to your specific condition.

Does it Work?

In a recent study of Spinal Decompression Therapy 219 patients who had at least 4 weeks of symptoms from either degenerative disc disease or herniated disc were treated.  The results were amazing! 86% reported immediate symptom relief and 84% were still pain free 90 days after their treatment was completed.

Is it Painful?

NO.  In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless and most people even notice a reduction of pain during their sessions, In face, some patients even fall asleep.

Will I still need other Therapy?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is generally only one part your overall treatment plan.  There are other therapies your health care provider may recommend to help speed up your healing process.  These often include:  ice or heat therapy, chiropractic adjustments and/or active rehabilitation to strengthen spinal muscles.
