Low Back Pain & Sciatica Treatment
Spinal decompression works by having you relax on a table with a harness attached to your waist, in turn attached to the strap pulled on in precise ways by the computer-controlled spinal decompression machine. As the strap is pulled on and relaxed, your spine is gradually and painlessly stretched, increasing the space between your spinal vertebrae.
As the spinal decompression machine stretches your spine, it creates negative pressure within the disc, which creates a vacuum effect that pulls the leaking disc tissues back inside the disc. Once tissue no longer protrudes to push on your nerves, your back pain lessens.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is Appropriate for:
- Bulging Discs
- Degenerated Discs
- Facet Joint Syndrome
- Herniated Discs
- Low Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Spinal Stenosis
- Failed Spinal Surgery
Several treatments on the spinal decompression machine exercise, stretch, and strengthen the ligaments that hold the disc material in place, helping to prevent another episode of a painful bulging spinal disc.
Spinal decompression is an FDA cleared therapy that is a non-surgical, non-invasive way of treating back pain without the need for painful, costly back surgery. A special computer-controlled spinal decompression machine painlessly stretches your spine to decompress your spinal discs and take the pressure off your nerves that are causing your back pain. Studies have shown that spinal decompression is an effective pain relief method and it is being used by many medical doctors, chiropractors, and osteopaths worldwide.

Are you a candidate for spinal decompression?
That’s the first thing your doctor must determine, to insure that using spinal decompression will help relieve your particular back pain. To reach that answer, a thorough examination by your doctor is the first step in your treatment. X-rays may be taken in our office so the doctor can review the alignment of your spinal bones, and determine what is causing your pain.
Spinal decompression treatment
If the doctor sees that you will be helped by spinal decompression, he will recommend a treatment plan designed for your particular back pain and condition. Typically spinal decompression is most effective with repeated treatments over several weeks. Fortunately, the cost per treatment is very reasonable, and we can even help with a payment plan.
Each spinal decompression session requires 30 to 45 minutes. Most patients require several sessions a week, over 2-4 weeks.
What happens during spinal decompression treatment?
You can watch TV or sleep. The stretching of your spine produces a soothing mood so you may feel it’s a great time for a nap, as you relax on the spinal decompression table for 3o to 45 minutes. You lie on your back with a pillow under your head, and a comfortable cushion raises your knees into a V. A special harness is attached to your spine, and a strap from that harness attaches to the spinal decompression machine that will gradually and painlessly pull to stretch and then release your spine, time and again, in repeated motions. The stretching is controlled by a computer in the machine, so it precisely adjusts your spine according to how the doctor or doctor’s assistant programs the computer to treat you back pain.
