What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a safe and effective treatment for pain without the risks associated with surgery, anesthesia, infection, injections, or prescription medication. As you can imagine, decompression therapy is rapidly gaining popularity due to its exceptional results treating chronic back and neck pain without surgery.
Simply described, this method of treatment uses a therapeutic table that is connected to a computer, to electronically stretch and decompress your spinal structures using traction. You rest on the table while a padded harness focuses the gentle force along your spinal column. This decompresses your spine — specifically the intervertebral discs — while at the same time stretching the muscles along your spine. This method effectively relieves tension and tightness from your back muscles and connective tissues, which releases pressure off of the spine and spinal nerves, therefore, improving nerve function and relieving pain.
How Do I Know If I Am a Candidate?
Prior to beginning treatments, we evaluate you to determine if you are a candidate. Your medical history, x-rays, CT/MRI scans are carefully reviewed. If you are a candidate for decompression therapy, we will create a personalized treatment plan unique to your individual health needs and goals. A typical plan may include as few as 10 treatments or up to 30 treatments. To achieve optimal results, it is important to complete your treatment plan — and thus the full healing process — even if you start to feel improvement early on. It is not uncommon to experience a significant reduction in pain early in your treatments.
What Can I Expect During a Decompression Therapy Session?
At the beginning of each session, you are fitted with a comfortable harness designed to offer optimal decompression, unloading due to distraction, and proper positioning. You are fully clothed, and a specially trained technician will make sure that you are properly positioned for comfort, safety, and effectiveness. The computer is programmed in accordance with your specific treatment plan. Once treatment preparation is complete, your decompression session commences.
During the treatment cycles, you may feel some relief of the pressure in the area where your pain exists. During this time, your body is responding by flooding the area with valuable oxygen, blood, and nutrients, which help promote your body’s natural healing process.
Your treatments sessions are typically both comfortable and relaxing. At the end of your session, there is no downtime or recovery time. Most patients enjoy their treatments and report experiencing many benefits after a treatment.
