The Science of Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression therapy is grounded in the science of spinal biomechanics and neurophysiology. By gently stretching the spine using our state-of-the-art, FDA-approved decompression tables, we create a controlled unloading of the spine which induces negative pressure within the disc space. This negative pressure promotes the retraction of herniated or bulging disc material, facilitating a healing environment by drawing in a fresh supply of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids to the degenerated discs.

Targeted Treatment for Comprehensive Healing

Our spinal decompression therapy is meticulously tailored to target specific levels of the lumbar or cervical spine (lower back or neck), ensuring precise relief and optimal healing outcomes. This individualized approach allows us to effectively treat a wide spectrum of spinal disorders, including:

  • Herniated and Bulging Discs: Directly addressing the displacement of disc material to relieve associated pain and discomfort.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: Slowing disc degeneration by enhancing nutrient flow and disc hydration.
  • Sciatica: Relieving the hallmark shooting pain down the leg by alleviating nerve compression.
  • Posterior Facet Syndrome: Easing the pain from worn spinal joints by improving spinal biomechanics.
  • Spinal Stenosis and Arthritis: Increasing spinal canal space and reducing inflammation to improve function and reduce pain.
  • Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS): Providing an alternative relief route for those who have not found success with surgical interventions.

Are there any contraindications for spinal decompression therapy?

While spinal decompression is widely applicable, certain conditions such as severe osteoporosis, spinal tumors, and some instances of spinal fusion may preclude individuals from treatment. A comprehensive evaluation will determine your eligibility.
