Decompression Therapy is an effective, non-surgical, way to treat disc herniations and/or degenerating discs. It is used to remove pressure off, or decompress, the discs and nerves. Each sequence helps the damaged disc receive more nourishment, expel cellular waste and enjoy reduced pressure. Through this process the healing can begin.
Decompression Therapy is not simply for treating the symptoms of the herniated disc; it positively affects the disc itself. It is highly effective, especially when combined with postural corrective chiropractic care.
Patients who may benefit from Decompression Therapy include the following:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Herniated or Bulging Discs
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Facet Syndrome
- Numbness and/or Tingling in the Arms or Legs
Decompression Therapy is typically 12 – 15 minutes long and a treatment plan can range 20-30 sessions in duration (depending on case severity). Many of our patients have reported an increase in their mobility, improved body function, and less pain as they go through the program, often within the first few treatments.
