Pressure on your spinal discs can results in pain and additional chronic conditions. Poor posture, repetitive stress, and acute injuries can cause your vertebrae discs to slip out of alignment, and apply pressure to your spine. Resulting in the vertebrae compressing and chronic pain due to bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and sciatica.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, gentle method of treating compressed discs in the spine to prevent further injuries.
Compressed spinal discs are often prolonged because the disc cannot properly supply itself with the nutrients needed to function and to heal from minor injuries sustained throughout your daily activities. As a result, compressed discs lead to two major problems in the spine: a bulge or herniation. Both press against the nerve and causes instability of the disc itself.
What to expect
During the procedure, patients are stabilized to a decompression table and the session parameters are established based on condition.
Typical sessions last 15-25 minutes. Patients typically experience the greatest results within 12-20 sessions at a 2-3 times per week frequency.
