Decompression Therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, stenosis, posterior facet, sciatica, headaches, and other spinal related syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.

Spinal discs are avascular structures, meaning that they do not have an adequate blood supply like muscles in the body do. The lack of blood supply means that discs in the spine heal naturally at a very slow rate and current research states that a spinal disc heals in 300-500 days without treatment. By employing Decompression Therapy, an osmotic interchange of fluid can be used to speed healing of the disc by up to 71% and heal that disc in less than 100 days.

Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions, typically 2-3 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. The extent and severity of your individual symptoms will determine the number of sessions that will be necessary.

Decompression Therapy is an FDA cleared procedure that is covered by most insurance companies and can be compensated under Worker's Compensation and Personal Injury Law. It is not covered under Medicare at this time but ask us about our affordable Medicare packages and discounts.
