Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

What is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a completely safe method for inducing your body’s natural healing mechanisms to work on bulged discs, herniated discs, and degenerated discs. Bulged discs can put pressure on nearby nerves, causing swelling, pain, and inflammation. By gently stretching your spine, pressure is released from the damaged disc and this allows it to settle back into its normal, natural position and also opens up the pathways for healing nutrients to access and enter into the disc. In this way, your body naturally repairs and restores the damaged disc.

How it works

The patient is fully clothed and lies either face down or face up on a special padded table with a strap tied snugly around the waist. A machine then begins slow cycles of decompression and relaxation for a duration of 30-45 minutes. The pressure is moderate and most patients experience relief with the stretching as it occurs. For best results, the patient should have this treatment done 20-28 times in 4-6 weeks.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a Healthy Alternative to Back Surgery

Spinal surgery is dreaded by most people. Few people feel comfortable taking a knife to their backbone, and that is totally understandable and quite reasonable. Yet chronic back pain can make people desperate for any sort of solution. Non-Surgical spinal decompression can be a great option for people who are at their wit’s end with pain and discomfort in their back or neck. Before going under the knife, consider this viable option for treatment of:

Chronic lower back pain – resulting from bulged discs, herniated discs, or degenerative discs.
Neck pain – from degenerative discs causing discomfort, pain, and limited motion.
Sciatica – pressure leading to irritation of the nerves traveling from the base of your spine down your legs, causing leg pain, discomfort, and inflammation.
