Spinal Decompression is a therapeutic tool used to fix a compressed spine. Spines naturally contract over time and vertebrae grow closer and closer together, causing pressure against the discs.
Spinal compression can be uncomfortable and often painful, as misaligned vertebrae put unnecessary pressure on your neck and back. We reverse this by applying negative pressure. In other words, by letting gravity gently stretch your spine back to its optimal curvature.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical way to treat neck and lower back pain, as it involves a gentle stretching of the spine in order to relieve pain and allow the spine to heal. This technique uses tension and pressure to gently expand the discs between the vertebrae, which relieves the pressure on spinal nerves.
We target different parts of the back – lower or upper depending on where it needs to be decompressed. Over a period of 4 to 6 weeks, we use the latest technology to gently stretch your spine into alignment by creating the correct spacing between each vertebrae.
In addition to neck and lower back pain, spinal decompression can also be used to treat:
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
- Degenerative disc disease
- Leg pain
- Radiating arm pain
- Facet syndromes
Spinal Decompression is ultimately a proven effective, non-invasive way of treating pain and correcting the cause of the pain.
