Spinal Decompression Therapy

Heal your disc injury with a relaxing yet effective treatment!

About Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a relatively unknown treatment best known for reducing the effects of low back pain and sciatica. The therapy involves the application of distractive forces to relieve nerve compression often associated with lower back pain and sciatica.

Why choose Spinal Decompression:

  • Non-invasive
  • No medication required
  • Effective treatment of low back pain and sciatica
  • Comfortable and relaxing
  • Heals damaged or degenerated discs

Additional Info:

For around 30 minutes you will lie down on the comfortable, heavily-padded spinal decompression table. Feel free to listen to music, watch a DVD, or even take a quick nap while the table delivers therapeutic spinal decompressive forces to your spine, alternating between maximum and minimum levels. The varying forces stimulate natural processes, which direct nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of discs to the inside, helping to heal the damaged and degenerated disc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will spinal decompression therapy hurt?

The process is completely painless and is actually relaxing. It is a longer treatment process than you may be used to (30 minutes), so bring something to read or watch if you would like.

  • "My neck is completely free of pain!"

    For approximately 25 years I have experienced varying degrees of pain in my neck and back and have tried a number of different treatments to eliminate the discomfort. Now, to my amazement and delight, you have treated me with Active Release Therapy and my neck is completely free of pain.

    Over a period of approximately eight weeks you applied this treatment to my neck and I have not had a moment of discomfort since my last treatment.

    I am so impressed with your technique, skill and commitment to chiropractic that I am looking forward to further treatments – with the goal of a completely pain-free back. Thank you!
