Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

A non-invasive, drug-free answer for disc related syndromes of the lumbar or cervical spine, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD) can significantly reduce debilitating back pain. Despite its conservative nature, extensive research proves it to be highly effective in correcting many pain-inducing conditions and eliminating the need for surgery by using a therapeutic, computer-programmed traction table to create negative pressure between the discs of the spine.

Spinal Decompression May Benefit You

If you are experiencing pain associated with disc abnormalities, Spinal Decompression—often combined with physical therapy—can be an excellent source of pain relief. Patients have experienced relief immediately following their first treatment. The relief is produced by gently increasing the space between the vertebrae of the spine, reducing damaging pressure on discs and alleviating nerve pain. Combined with other therapeutic modalities, spinal decompression can drastically reduce pain symptoms in just a few visits and enable your permanent return to pain-free activity.

The forms of back pain that benefit greatly from this modality include:

  • Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Arthritis
  • Herniated Discs
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Post-Surgical Pain

Highly Successful, Safe Alternative

Spinal Decompression utilizes a computerized and highly-specialized table to control the force and angle of disc distraction to provide non-invasive pain relief for bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal arthritis and spinal stenosis.

The patient’s spine is gently guided through a gradual set of stretch and release cycles. These gentle cycles prevent back muscle spasms often associated with traditional overall traction. Spinal Decompression allows for the herniated or bulging disc tissue to ease back into the disc space. This controlled, mechanical traction on the spine creates space and encourages a healing environment for the disc, allowing oxygen, nutrients, and water to flow back into the once cramped disc environment.

Spinal Decompression therapy is a safe and effective treatment for pain without the risks associated with surgery, anesthesia, infection, injections, or prescription medication. Clinical studies of Spinal Decompression therapy are reporting that a high percentage of patients show significant reduction of pain.

What to Expect

Prior to beginning treatments, we evaluate you to determine if you are a candidate. Your medical history, x-rays, and CT/ MRI scans are carefully reviewed. The process begins by having the patient lie on a traction table. The table is constructed so that the top stays stable, but the bottom can slide side-to-side to provide relaxation and traction. Depending on the table and the therapy needed, you will either lie on your back or your side and a harness will hold your hips in place. Each treatment takes 30-45 minutes and a series of appointments is necessary to allow the disc to heal. Spinal Decompression may be combined with other treatment modalities such as heat and/or cold and/or ultrasound.
