NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION
Decompression therapy is used to treat disc bulges or herniations, severe arthritis, or other musculoskeletal complaints that may not respond to typical treatments. Non-surgical decompression is a non-invasive treatment that provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a special table. You are strapped to the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc).
A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in- between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls apart the spine which creates a ‘vacuum effect’ within the disc allowing it to heal. Decompression therapy works in minute increments which overtime allows the disc to retract back to its normal position. If you suffer from sciatica, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, arm and hand pain, degenerative disc disease, disc bulging, pain in the buttocks or in the back of the legs then spinal decompression is definitely something you should try before considering surgery.
