Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is achieved through the use of a highly specialized, computerized decompression table which  relieves pressure on one or multiple pinched nerves in the spinal column.

 

 

Patients are secured onto the decompression table with specialized straps. A computer controls the force and angle of disc distraction which is pre-determined by your physiotherapist. This enhanced control allows the decompression table to apply a traction force to the discs, reducing intradiscal pressure and creating a vacuum.

It is used to treat conditions that result in chronic back pain such as disc bulge, disc herniation, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis.
