Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression therapy is a non-surgical procedure that has high success. A pumping action of this special type of traction helps the disc draw in more nutrients, and reduce the amount of disc protrusion. The disc protrusion is what put irritating pressure on the nerve, causing the symptoms.

Remember, the discs have a very poor blood supply. They are dependent on movement to help “pump” nutrients into the disc to keep it healthy. This same pumping action is achieved by spinal decompression. You feel more relaxed, and get proper nutrients to the injured area.

A therapy session usually lasts about 20 minutes, 3 times a week for up to 6-8 weeks. Most feel pain relief within 6 visits. We also provide other therapies to help decrease muscle spasm and inflammation. Enhance the condition of your discs today. Regular home exercise can help with strengthening and maintaining optimal spinal health once the disc has improved.

Mirror image traction is a proven method used to achieve adaptation of posture. It consists of placing the body in the mirror image, or opposite posture seen on x-ray evaluation, and applying stretching forces in the right place to achieve correction.

This allows the spine and it’s supportive tissues ( ligaments, muscles, tendons) to adapt over time, allowing the spine to achieve a corrected alignment and maintain it over time. Many published studies by Chiropractic Biophysics have shown the efficacy of this novel treatment approach.

It has been shown to be highly effective in treating chronic pain and new injuries that cause postural changes, like car accidents. This goes beyond the typical chiropractic adjustment, and actually accomplishes measurable change noted on follow up x-rays.” Combined with adjustments and exercise, effective treatment of many spinal conditions is attained.
