Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy has a clinically established, over 85% success rate at healing herniated discs and relieving low back pain.

Healing Physiology consists of a negative pressure state inside the intervertebral disc.This negative pressure, over time, promotes the regression of a disc bulge or herniation.Regression of the disc thereby relieves neurocompression.The changes in pressure surrounding the lumbar disc through the cycling action of the table facilitate blood flow through the disc.Fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients flow in while cations, acids, and the breakdown products of metabolism are removed.Thus natural healing and repair can proceed in tissues that previously were encumbered with high diffusion pressure, edematous tissues, and chronic irritation.

Conditions Treated by Spinal Decompression Therapy include;

  • Bulging or Herniated Disc
  • Degenerated disc disease
  • Sciatica
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Arm Pain

Contraindications include;

  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Vertebralfractures
  • Spondylolisthesis &
  • Spondylolysis
  • Unstable post surgical
  • conditions
  • Vertebral fusions
  • Inflammatory,
  • infectious, or
  • neoplastic conditions
  • Unstable spine

Treatment consists of three Phases.

  • Decompression of the
  • intervertebral disc
  • space.
  • Mobilization and
  • strengthening of the
  • lumbar spine
  • Education and
  • prevention of further injury.

Treatment duration consists of approximately twenty 20 minute sessions on the

table.There are no short cuts; pain relief comes with healing and tissue repair,

which may take up to six weeks.

Treatment Costs Most insurance companies do not cover spinal decompression.
Decompression is $75 per session. Typical treatment consists of approximately 20 sessions so roughly $1,500 for the full treatment process. Compared to the 3 to 6 thousand dollars many clinics are charging we are very affordable. Various payment options are available.
