Spinal Decompression

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy, and how does it work?

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is a spinal disc treatment that uses FDA cleared medical technology that gently stretches the spine and decompresses the discs. This technique of spinal decompression therapy, that is, unloading due to distraction and positioning, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This "vacuum effect" is also known as negative intradiscal pressure (which is a good thing).
 
The negative pressure can induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over time, the results are quite dramatic.
The cycles of decompression and partial relaxation over a series of visits, promotes the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These nutrients enable the torn and degenerated disc fibers to begin to heal.
 
Will Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression help a slipped disc?

A “bulging” or "herniated" disc is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a "slipped" disc. Studies demonstrate that Spinal Decompression Therapy succeeds at treating bulging or herniated discs in as safe and effective manner. This of course varies depending on the complexity of the injury and other factors. Many times patients are able to avoid more costly and invasive procedures.
