Spinal Decompression

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Decompression Therapy

Back pain is reported to affect up to 85% of Americans at some point in their lives.

60% of all people who have successful back surgery are candidates for repeat surgery within 2-3 years.
The success rate for a second surgery is only 40%.

Third surgery results are even more alarming -- with only a 5% chance for relief. Wouldn't you want to know if there was an alternative to back surgery? Spinal Decompression Therapy may be your answer.

Spinal Decompression is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical treatment for low back pain that is safe, effective, and has helped thousands of people like you return to normal active lifestyles. This breakthrough treatment is non-invasive, comfortable and often so effective that many patients who have been in pain for years feel better in just a few treatments.

How does it work?

Spinal Decompression treatments painlessly decompress the disc(s) in your lower back, relieving pressure on the affected nerves and structure of the spine. Each treatment session lasts just about 30 minutes. The course of therapy typically involves about 20 treatment sessions, with most patients experiencing relief within 6 sessions.

Why does it work?

Spinal Decompression relieves the pressure that builds up on your discs and nerves. Pain is relieved by moving areas of the herniated disc back into place by creating negative pressure, which in turn draws disc material back into the disc space and relieves the pressure.

In bulging discs, the outer ligament bands that hold the disc material in place become weak and stretched. Decompression allows these bands to strengthen.
