Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

man in spinal decompression machineWhether you have severe back pain or a bulging or herniated disc, you want effective and lasting relief. Many people are told they’ll need surgery or painkillers, both of which can be risky. Non-surgical spinal decompression is a drug-free option to address your pain or disc issue. Best of all you won’t need to go under the knife.

Conditions It Can Help

Here are some of the main conditions that decompression can address:

  • Bulging or herniated disc
  • Degenerated disc
  • Severe arthritis
  • Stenosis

How It Works

You will get harnessed to our computerized decompression table, which will ever so slowly and gently stretch your spine. And then relax. This process opens up the space between spinal bones, creating a type of “respiration” of the fluid that surrounds the joint. The damaged disc receives nourishment and gets rid of cellular waste, enhancing the healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does decompression hurt?

No, you’ll likely feel relief almost immediately following the first session.

How many sessions will I need?

Typically, we recommend 15-20 sessions for several weeks but every patient is different. You will be given our recommendations.

How often should I come in for maintenance care?

Usually, we encourage patients to come in for monthly maintenance decompression. Some patients can benefit from weekly maintenance decompression, depending on their job and their weight. Others only require as little as one session a month for maintenance decompression.

What is the difference between traction and decompression?

Traction is static—meaning it just pulls and pulls repeatedly. The decompression has a rest phase, so it pulls for a minute and 15 seconds, and then it relaxes for 15 seconds. Then it pulls again and then relaxes again. This process repeats the entire time a patient is on the table, which is about 15-20 minutes.
