SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY

In nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy, the spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner.

supine-decompression

This process creates a negative intradiscal pressure (pressure within the disc itself), offering two potential benefits:

  • Pulls the herniated or bulging disc material back into the disc
  • Promotes the passage of healing nutrients, into the disc and fosters a better healing environment.

During spinal decompression therapy for the low back (lumbar spine), patients remain clothed and lie on a motorized table, the lower half of which can move.

  • A harness is placed around the hips and is attached to the lower table near the feet.
  • The upper part of the table remains in a fixed position while the lower part, to which the patient is harnessed, slides back and forth to provide the traction and relaxation.
  • The patient may either be placed in the supine (face up) or prone (face down) position, according to comfort and the doctor’s discretion.

For cervical (neck) decompression, the patient lies down on the table in a reclined posture, the head is comfortably placed into a head-carriage device and the carriage is attached to the traction control unit.

The patient should not feel pain during or after the decompression therapy although they should feel stretch in the spine.
