What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

We provide spinal decompression therapy that helps relieve chronic back, neck, arm, or leg pain caused by a bulging or herniated disc in the neck or lower back. Our experienced chiropractors use spinal disc decompression physical therapy to reduce pressure that builds up on the spinal discs and nerves. For many of our patients, this treatment has relieved chronic problems where other methods have failed.

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-chiropractic therapy to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries. 

Spinal Decompression Therapy Benefits:

    * Completely painless treatment
    * Non-surgical, traction-based method
    * Documented reduction of herniated discs
    * Effective for sciatica, spinal stenosis, post-surgical patients
    * Disk pressure reduction through gentle relaxation
    * Deeply discounted payment


Spinal Decompression Treatment is non-invasive and provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a decompression table. You are strapped to the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls the spine apart elongating it and creating a small vacuum between the vertebrae which pulls the disc back into shape.

Much like a repetitive stress injury the decompression works in very minute increments. But over time that adds up and lets the disc reshape itself, heal and get the proper flow of nutrients going to fight off brittleness and future injuries.

Did You Know...


Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics, repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress your discs or to slip out of alignment which then applies pressure to your discs. Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve; and brittleness of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself which is needed to heal. Spinal Decompression Therapy is an alternative FDA approved treatment option that has shown very good results. For many of our patients, this treatment has relieved chronic problems where other methods have failed.
