Spinal Decompression Therapy is a safe and effective non-surgical medical technology that specifically treats the pain and symptoms associated with bulged, herniated and degenerated discs. Developed by medical scientists and biomechanical engineers, spinal decompression therapy has helped thousands of individuals suffering from the following:

  • Chronic low back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Leg pain and weakness
  • Numbness and tingling of the legs and feet, 
  • Failed Back Surgery       

A computer controlled tension is directed to a specific area of the spine while the patient is lying on a specially designed therapy table. The problem disc is targeted and a gentle, painless pulling begins to decompress the spinal disc that is causing the pain. This decompressive action has been shown to create negative pressures inside the disc causing a vacuum action that draws bulged and  herniated material back toward the center of the disc. This relieves the pressure on the nerves that are causing the pain, draws fluid and nutrient material into the disc, rehydrates it and promotes healing of weakened and damaged tissues.  Recent studies have shown, and our results concur that people who experienced chronic pain longer than three months had an 89% reduction of pain after only 8 weeks of treatment.  No drugs, epidural injections or pain killing medications are used.

To determine if you’re a good candidate for the FDA cleared  SpineMED decompression protocol, give us a call to schedule an appointment for a consultation and exam. We’ll evaluate or order a MRI, examine you thoroughly (orthopedic, neurological and computerized spinal scan) and report our findings back to you. It’s as simple as that.
