Spinal decompression traction therapy is a non-surgical and comfortable traction therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain.
During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc segment can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum within the disc stimulates a healing response. This results in pain reduction and healing on a cellular level in more that 70% of patients. In addition we use other adjunctive treatments that have proven effectiveness in back care. It is this multi-faceted approach that makes the overall treatment so effective.
The blending of focused traction to the site, rehabilitation to the supporting structures and overall strengthening of global musculature makes the treatment unique. Spinal decompression therapy is designed to unload the spine. Any back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc or arthritis may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions included herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis (in some cases), sciatica, arthritis or eadiculopathy (pinched nerves). It can be performed in most patients who have not been left with an unstable spine after surgery or do no have fusion with metal implants.
