Spinal Decompression Therapy
This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide relief for lower back pain and sciatica, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for relief of neck pain, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain. The gentle distractive forces of this machine create a decompression of the spine to improve blood flow to the injured area. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes. Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, three times a week for one month. Most patients feel pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments and are released from treatment after eight weeks. Exercise and therapies such as heat, ultrasound, muscle stimulation, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.
