Spinal Decompression Therapy is a best known for reducing the effects of low back pain and sciatica. The therapy involves the application of distractive forces to relieve nerve compression often associated with lower back pain and sciatica.
Why choose Spinal Decompression:
- No medication required
- Effective treatment of low back pain and sciatica
- Comfortable and relaxing
- Heals damaged or degenerated discs
How it works:
The targeted vertebrae of the spine where the disc injury is, are slowly pulled apart during Spinal Decompression therapy. This pulling motion is controlled by the computer. As the vertebrae are separated, pressure is slowly reduced within the disc until a negative vacuum is formed. This vacuum pulls the body’s own natural element into the wounded area and has even been shown to reduce the size of an existing disc bulge or disc herniation. Significant disc bulge reduction removes pressure off the spinal nerves and drastically reduces pain and disability. The treatment is gentle and painless. There are cycles of pulling and relaxing (oscillation) which reduces body’s natural protective muscle spasm which commonly associated with traction treatments. Spinal Decompression Therapy targets the injured disc thorough angulated elongation methods (for example: L5 disc at the base of the spine, a ten degree angle is used).
For around 30 minutes you will lie down on the comfortable, heavily-padded spinal decompression table. Feel free to listen to music, watch a DVD, or even take a quick nap while the table delivers therapeutic spinal decompressive forces to your spine, alternating between maximum and minimum levels. The varying forces stimulate natural processes, which direct nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of discs to the inside, helping to heal the damaged and degenerated disc.
