HOW DOES NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION WORK?

It is a fact that damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal, as the discs are constantly under pressure — even while you are at rest. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy uses clinically proven principles to non-surgically decompress the spine and reduce the pressure between the discs.

Decompression (or the reduction of pressure inside the discs) facilitates the transfer of fluids and nutrients and oxygen back inside the disc. This results in the retraction of bulging or herniated discs, providing welcome relief of nerve pressure and assisting the disc’s natural healing.

Previous research of this technology found that the treatment provided excellent relief in 86% of patients with ruptured intervertebral discs and 75% of those with facet degeneration.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT

Looking for chiropractic treatments near you? Wondering what you can expect on your clinic visit? 

We’ll get to know your condition and health goals and a comprehensive assessment during your first appointment. From there, your chiropractor will create a customized treatment plan that suits your lifestyle and movement goals. 

All treatments are administered with the patient fully clothed. 

For spinal compression treatments, you can expect to be comfortably positioned on the table with a pelvic belt adjusted to secure the pelvis comfortably. The upper torso is captured by a comfortable securing system incorporated into the table.

The pelvic tilt section will be electronically tilted so that specific spinal segments can be targeted. 

With precise and painless computer controlled tension, the specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the disc’s pressure.

Most patients will find relief of their symptoms between 15 and 25 sessions (approx. 4-8 weeks of treatment) with prior laser and interferential therapy, alternating chiropractic adjustments and deep tissue massage. 

All treatments are finished with 10-15 minutes of icing. Most patients can return to normal activity levels at work or recreation in just a few weeks.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Who can benefit from non-surgical spinal decompression?
A: Non-Surgical Spinal decompression therapy is designed to unload the spinal disc. Any back pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by Non-Surgical spinal decompression therapy. It is designed to correct the underlying problem, not just relieve the symptoms.
Q: Does spinal decompression hurt? Is it safe?
A: Non-Surgical Spinal decompression therapy is extremely gentle and virtually pain-free. Most patients once used to the belts find the pulling very relaxing. It is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during treatment. Patients with conditions that may compromise the spinal column’s integrity, such as gross osteoporosis, spondylolisthesis grade II and above, recent fractures, tumours, aneurysms or congenital pars defects, are not candidates for this kind of treatment.
Q: Do I need an MRI or CT scan?
A: It helps to determine how severe the spine is damaged and is helpful in determining how many treatments will be required. A full examination and spinal x-rays will be necessary prior to first decompression pull to rule out any contraindications.
Q: I have no low back pain, but unexplained hip pain or no pain at all. Could decompression help me?
A: A thorough examination will decide if the pain is caused by the low-back or something else entirely. If a nerve or nerves are pinched, pain can radiate into the hip, causing hip pain without low back pain. Frequently, there are problems in the low back from either spinal trauma or injury that can weaken the spinal column, making it unstable without noticeable pain.
Q: I have had spinal surgery but continue to have pain. Can I try Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy?
A: Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy can help patients with back pain after failed spinal surgery unless hardware (screws, rods, etc.) have been implanted in the spine.
It can be performed in most patients who have not been left with an unstable spine after surgery.
