What Makes Spinal Decompression Therapy so Effective?

Doctor skill combined with the table and computerized traction head are the keys. Proper assessment, correct positioning and the use of preprogrammed patterns of distraction and relaxation may reduce disc pressure allowing necessary nutrients to enliven and accelerate disc healing.

Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or even failed surgery.

Are there medical studies that document the effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Yes! One study documented by MRI up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases and other studies reported that the majority of herniated disc patients achieved "good" to "excellent" results after spinal decompression therapy. "To Your Health" Magazine featured an article about spinal decompression therapy authored by one of our doctors, James Edwards. In the article, Dr. Edwards discussed the safety and effectiveness of this non-surgical treatment for spinal disc herniations.

Are there conditions where Spinal Decompression Therapy is not recommended?

Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have osteoporosis, severe obesity or nerve damage. Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or "cages") is also a contraindication for treatment. However, spinal decompression therapy after bone fusion or non-fusion spinal surgery, can be performed.

Do most patients receive therapy and rehabilitative exercises in addition to Spinal Decompression Therapy?

To reduce inflammation and assist the healing process, supporting structures are treated with passive therapies (ice, heat, muscle stimulation), chiropractic adjustments (as indicated) and/or active rehabilitation in order to strengthen the spinal musculature.
