Spinal Decompression Therapy

Decompression therapy is a specialized form of traction therapy.  It is different in that it utilizes a computer operated table, which ensures safety and consistency over treatments.  This is used for spinal problems specifically in the lower back or upper back/neck. Decompression therapy can help relieve discomfort from bugling or herniated discs, as well as for degenerative joints of the spine.  It is specifically useful in conditions such as sciatica and neck problems causing abnormal sensation in the legs or arms.  Our spines are being constantly compressed by gravity (except when we are sleeping), which quite literally squeezes discs and closes down spaces within the spine for nerves to travel.  Decompression therapy helps to open these spaces and allows pressure to be relieved off these nerves and discs.

  • ​Herniated Disc

  • Bulging Disc

  • Spinal stenosis

  • Sciatica

  • Spinal Arthritis

  • Chronic low back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Pain radiating down arms or legs

  • "Pinched nerves"

Conditions Treated

Herniated Disc

Spinal Decompression

Pressure on the disc is so great that a tear occurs in the disc wall leading to pain, numbness, tingling, and/or weakness. 

A reduction of pressure inside the discs (decompression) aids in pulling nutrients, oxygen, and moisture back into the disc.
