What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression

  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet syndrome
  • Failed back surgery
  • Ongoing lower back or neck pain that is not responding to traditional spinal treatment by a M.D., D.O., D.C., or P.T.

Reasons to Consider Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression


Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive treatment for patients who suffer from neck and back problems. A decompression treatment slowly and gently lengthens or releases pressure in the spine through repetitive movements by a customized treatment table. The table pulls and releases, creating a pressure change within the invertebral disc, surrounding soft tissue, and joints. This pressure change allows the disc bulges or herniations and nutrients to be pulled back into the disc. Rehydration of the disc and surrounding structures creates a physiological change which assists the body’s natural healing process. Patients typically experience significant improvement within 20-25 treatments. Research suggests that continued improvement is seen up to four years following decompression treatment program.  



Spinal Decompression sessions usually last between 45 minutes to an hour. The patients will first start off with application of diathermy in the area that is being treated. Diathermy is a medical instrument for local heating of bodily tissues for medical purposes. This lasts for 10 minutes. Next the patient will move to the Spinal Decompression table and will then be strapped in either at the waist for lumbar decompression or around the head for cervical decompression. This will last for 20 minutes. After the patient is decompressed, ice will be applied to the area that was treated for 15 minutes to help reduce soreness. Last the patient will be taken to an adjustment room to be adjusted by the Doctor.To see a demo on this table, please click the link below.
