What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a FDA approved, non-surgical, traction based treatment outcome for herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and spinal stenosis in the neck and low back. Spinal decompression therapy decompresses spinal discs and facet joints by utilizing traction, distraction, and body positioning. This unloading due to distraction and positioning, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This "vacuum effect" is also known as negative intra-discal pressure. The negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks, the results are quite dramatic.

Why is the Spinal Decompression System Effective?

Our Decompression Traction System uses computer technology to control variations in the unloading (traction pull) of the spine, effectively avoiding the body's muscle contraction response. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction that permits decompression to occur at the disc level.

Are There Any Research Studies or Clinical Trials That Document the Effectiveness of this Treatment?

Our Traction System is FDA approved and has been clinically proven to provide pain relief and decrease symptoms associated with herniated and/or bulging discs.

Can Spinal Decompression Therapy Help Me?

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is very effective at treating bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, and facet syndromes.
