Spinal Decompression

We'll be there every step of the way

Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for certain types of chronic back and neck pain.

Spinal decompression therapy can treat many disc-related problems. It can help those suffering from:

  • Herniated discs
  • Bulging disks
  • Back or neck pain
  • Sciatica (pain or tingling that runs down the leg from the lower back)
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Pinched nerves

These are just some of the ailments that can be treated using spinal decompression. This non-surgical treatment is an excellent option for addressing pain issues without the risk of surgery. Studies have shown that spinal decompression improves disc height and is an effective treatment for reducing pain in the spine.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Non-surgical spinal decompression slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates a vacuum inside the discs that helps to reposition bulging discs and draw extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.

Why is Spinal Decompression Different from Traction, Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Manipulation?

While traction, physical therapy, and manipulation may reduce th epressures to as low as 40 mm Hg, only spinal decompression has been shown to achieve negative pressures within the spine. It has been clinically proven that spinal decompression creates negative pressures as low as - 110 mm Hg within the injured disc during the treatment session. Normally, pulls exerted on the spine trigger sensory receptors in the back to tighten the muscles surrounding the vertebrae and discs in an effort to protect them from injury. Spinal decompression bypasses this response by slowly pulling on the spine and relaxing the back over an extended period of time, allowing the discs to be repositioned without tension and without causing spasm and muscle guarding. It is important for patients to make sure that they are treated on a high quality true spinal decompression table by a physician with years of experience and not an imitation spinal decompression table.

    Is it True that Research Has Shown Up to 88.9% Success Rate for Spinal Decompression?

    Yes! More than 10 research articles have shown success rates for spinal decompression to be up to 88.9%. In fact, John Leslie M.D. and the Mayo Clinic reported at the 18th annual Meeting American Academy of Pain Management in Tampa Florida on September 5, 2007 the following amazing statistics:

    • Multi-center, phase II, non-randomized pilot studyutilizing spinal decompression.
    • Designed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of spinal decompression in the treatment of chronic lower back pain.
    • Patients enrolled have an average of ten years of chronic back pain.
    • After two weeks of treatments of spinal decompression - 50% reduction in pain scores.
    • Upon completion of the entire six week protocol success rate of 88.9% was documented.

    Is it true that Professional Athletes, Celebrities and Patients in their 90’s have turned to Spinal Decompression and Cold Laser Therapy as a Successful, non-surgical option to Neck and Back Pain WITHOUT the use of drugs, pills and surgery?

    Yes! Professional athletes, celebrities, and even patients in their 90’s are turning to spinal decompression and cold laser therapy as an affordable, non-surgical alternative to neck and back pain without the use of drugs, pills and surgery. People are tired of taking pills that simply mask the pain and can cause all kinds of serious side effects.

    People are frustrated with getting shots that work the first time or two and then eventually have minimal or no effect. And people are scared to death of surgery as they have seen firsthand as their friends and relatives who spent 1,000’s of dollars, had weeks of “down time”, have scars, and risked serious side effects and still ended up with a “failed back surgery syndrome”. New non-surgical spinal decompression is not only effective and affordable but it is also non-invasive and safe.
