What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a modern, non-surgical procedure designed to alleviate chronic back, neck, and sciatica pain. Using advanced medical technology, this treatment has transformed the lives of patients who suffer from persistent spinal discomfort. Let's explore how this revolutionary therapy works.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
The way Spinal Decompression works is that we use motorized traction to gently stretch your spine. By doing so, it changes the force and position of the spine, relieving significant pressure from the spinal discs — the gel-like cushions between your bones. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This promotes movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs, fostering a better healing environment.
What to Expect During the Treatment?
During a spinal decompression session, you'll lie on a motorized table, either face up or face down, depending on your condition and the recommendation of the therapist. A harness is placed around your pelvis and another around your trunk. The motorized table will then gently stretch your spine, ensuring that the procedure is both controlled and efficient. Each session typically lasts between 30 to 45 minutes.
