Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical procedure that effectively treats disabling pain in the lower back, neck, radiating arms & legs, as well as headaches. Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases. It does this by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.

Spinal Decompression Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective, and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle. Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers, and technicians at major teaching hospitals. This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.

What to Expect

Spinal Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions, typically 2-3 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues. After treatment, the doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help the patient regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits.

Patient Testimonials

“I have a very good relationship with all of the chiropractors. Everyone here knows who you are and are very warm and welcoming. I ask questions and always get answers. I felt like I was in good hands the entire time I was here. The treatments worked.”

Francois S.

“I learned that I have been walking incorrectly for years. I had poor posture. I became more conscious of everything I do to change my old habits. I learned so many exercises from the chiropractors and Diane, the rehab tech. Although the modifications were subtle and seemed very small, they made a big impact and very noticeable change.”
