Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, painless, non-invasive, drug-free form of traction therapy. It is a form physiotherapy modality that involves gentle automated stretch and release of the spine at the neck or lower back. Benefits include:
- Relieve herniated disc pressure on the spinal nerves
- Rehydrate and promote spinal disc repair
Spinal decompression is performed on either the lumbar spine or the cervical (neck) spine. Our decompression machine allows the patient to be placed, your most comfortable position, whether it be prone (faced down), supine (faced up), hip tilted or straight.
Our spinal decompression has a built in Whole body Vibration (WBV) unit. WBV when combined with the decompression, it may help soften muscles up to 50% quicker than using spinal decompression alone. Decompression, combined with WBV, pulls fluids into the discs more rapidly.
FAQ for Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression Therapy machine gently stretches and relaxes the spine, thus diminishing or eliminating nerve compression, while at the same time promoting blood flow and, therefore, nutrition and oxygen intake into the discs and removal of metabolic waste products.
In healthy discs, the intake of nutrition occurs naturally with daily motions and body positions. A disc with poor intake, fewer nutrients, and less hydration, is more likely to become injured and painful. Spinal decompression may be use together with chiropractic to attain better longer lasting results.
