What is Decompression Therapy

Decompression Therapy is a nonsurgical procedure that effectively treats disabling low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain, and headaches. Decompression Therapy effectively relieves pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.

Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals.

Is Decompression Therapy Right For You?

Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases.

This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.

Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8 – 12 minutes. Following each session, electrical muscle stimulation or ultrasound is applied to help relax your muscles and ligaments.

After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain control and strengthen the co-contractor muscles which are responsible for stabilization.

Decompression Therapy is administered to patients fully clothed either face down or face up on the table.
