Spinal Decompression slowly relaxes and stretches your spine by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases. During your session, downward forces of gravity are removed. The therapy phases create negative pressure inside the disc drawing the disc material back into place. The cycles of distraction and relaxation create a vacuum effect promoting the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside to flow back into your discs. These extra resources of nutrients provide the building blocks that begin to heal the damaged and torn disc fibers.
The vacuum effect produced at the level of the disc retracts the bulge/herniation back into place. This technology isolates a specific disc in your neck or low back based on the treatment angle and force of pull set for your session.
This FDA-cleared procedure is gentle, effective, and painless. It is highly effective and done safely within established protocols. Spinal Decompression therapy amplifies the healing process and provides powerful pain relief. Many of our patients have often found relief after they have tried and failed other treatments.
Our doctors use a dual, revolutionary approach; combining the most advanced spinal decompression therapy with gentle, upper cervical chiropractic techniques (NUCCA) to help you get better faster. Don’t lose hope! We treat many patients successfully with our cutting-edge technology.
