What Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Consist of?
This FDA approved treatment method slowly provides decompression. The patient is gently strapped to a table, which slowly moves, and gently stretches specific areas of the spine.
The computer, monitored by your chiropractor, is in control of intermittently stressing and relaxing the spine. This elongates the spine, pulling vertebrae apart gently creating a vacuum, which pulls the discs back into place.
Is Decompression Therapy Right for You?
Although treatment is entirely safe and non-invasive, patients with failed back surgery, artificial discs, broken vertebrae, spinal infusion, and who are pregnant should refrain from spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy promotes the repositioning of discs and causes an increase of healing nutrients and additional beneficial substances within the discs.
This treatment is pain-free, and after every session, the patient feels an elongating of the spine. Depending on the patients’ condition, your chiropractor may also administer hot and cold therapy, ultrasound, or electronic stimulation after the session is complete.
