Spinal Decompression Therapy

Gently drawing apart each joint like an accordion allows the spine to reset, and the pumping action enhances soft tissue nutrition and rehabilitation.

Each of us is constantly in a battle—with gravity! A frequent casualty is the soft disc material that separates each spinal bone. Pressure from our weight, trauma from an accident and other causes can increase the pressure on a weakened disc. In extreme cases, the soft pulpy center of the disc can escape, resulting in a bulge or herniation. That can be quite painful.

We use the latest technology to help relieve the effects of low back back pain and sciatica due to herniated and degenerated discs. Since discs are constantly under weight-bearing pressure, they can be slow to heal. By gently “stretching” your spine, we help relieve pressure and enhance healing. This is called spinal decompression therapy.

First, we’ll have you lie down on our specially-equipped table. Then, ever so slowly, we’ll stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch. And relax using a computer algorithm programmed just for you. Our patients tell us this gentle, pulling process is quite pleasant, even relaxing and many fall asleep during treatment sessions. Because they don’t feel the need to “guard” their spine, each sequence helps the damaged disc receive nourishment, expel cellular waste and enjoy reduced pressure. Then, healing can begin.

The SpineMED Decompression System is highly effective, especially when combined with Deep Tissue Laser Therapy. Do you know someone who could benefit from decompression therapy? Have them call us today for a complimentary consultation to determine if they are candidates for treatment and as always, we’ll treat them like family.
