Disc Decompression

Research

Research indicates the disc is responsible for a significant number of lumbar/leg pain and neck/arm pain syndromes. Compression increases intradiscal pressure leading to annular compromise and possible extrusion of nuclear material.

Spinal decompression therapy effectively relieves the pain and disability resulting from disc injury and degeneration by repairing damaged discs and reversing damaging changes in nerves. It addresses various aspects of disc pain and disease through non-surgical decompression of intervertebral discs and nerve roots. Studies verify the significant reduction of intradiscal pressures; conventional traction has never demonstrated these benefits. On the contrary - many traction devices actually increase pressure within the disc.

By significantly reducing pressure withing the disc, spinal decompression promotes retraction of the herniation into the disc. The most recent trial found that reduction of disc herniation ranged between 10% and 90%, depending on the number of sessions performed, while disc healing was evident in all cases.

Pain-Free!

The most recent clinical study of 219 patients has shown that spinal decompression therapy provided an immediate resoultion of symptoms for 86% of the participants, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Our spinal decompression protocol is extreemly comprehensive and may include decompression, physiotherapy, chiropractic, infrared therapy and spinal rehabilitation exercises.
