Spinal Traction/Decompression

The Spinal Disc Decompression Table is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause the pain, and facilitate in the natural healing of discs. The Spinal Decompression Table comfortably and accurately increases intersegmental disc space, providing non-surgical decompression of discs. Tears in the disc annulus can be repaired, and sufficient fluids and nutrients can be introduced into the nucleus to reverse the disc degeneration, bulging discs, and collapse resulting from injury. Rehydration of the disc nucleus can restore disc height which relieves the pressure on inflamed facet joints.

It is a medical fact that damaged discs seldom heal on their own, as the discs are constantly under pressure. The Decompression Table uses clinically proven principles to reduce the pressure inside the discs. Decompression promotes the transfer of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen back inside the discs and results in the retraction of bulging or herniated discs, providing relief of nerve pressure and pain. Recent clinical trials, utilizing MRI, pre and post treatment on a similar table, demonstrated that disc herniations were reduced 10% to 90%, according to the number of treatment sessions. Patching and healing of the annulus was also evident.
At the conclusion of the treatment series when the disc injury has been corrected, patients are given strengthening exercises and core stabilization recommendations to avoid repeat injury. After only a few weeks of treatment, research has shown amazing results in relieving the debilitating pain caused by degenerative, bulging, herniated or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and many failed back surgery cases. Most patients are able to return to normal levels of activity or recreation in just a few weeks’ time.  A typical daily treatment consists of 15 minutes on the decompression table. All treatments are administered with the patient fully clothed. The patient is positioned on the table and comfortably secured to a fixed part of the table. The table 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 pressure inside of the disc. The treatment is comfortable, and some patients fall asleep. Most patients will find relief of their symptoms between 5 and 10 sessions, while the average recommended course of treatment is 20 sessions. Ideally, the treatments are performed daily with a rest on the weekend.
