What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment that is used to help with serious lower back pain or neck pain. This treatment can relieve pain from bulging or herniated discs, degenerative discs, facet syndrome, sciatica, and headaches. Decompression reduces pressure on sensitive tissues. In addition, it promotes blood and fluid flow into the disc, thus bringing a faster, natural healing.

What Conditions Can Decompression Help?

– Pain from bulged or herniated discs
– Lower back pain
– Recurrent pain from a failed neck or back surgery
– Neck pain
– Pain caused by degenerated discs

What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Spinal decompression is a very gentle, relaxing treatment. First, you will lie on a table and your muscles will be heated, massaged, and relaxed. After this, you will lie on the D.T.S. decompression table and a belt strap will be wrapped around your pelvis. The belt is a part of the section of the machine that distracts your spine from the amounts of pull. When this stage of treatment is complete, the swelling in the problem area will be further reduced with ice packs and electrical stimulation. If necessary, very slight spinal adjustments are made. Lastly, a cold laser will be used to stimulate your cells to further healing and generate more energy. Each treatment lasts about 50 to 60 minutes and most people require about 12 to 15 treatments.
