Spinal Decompression

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?


Over a decade ago, NASA noticed that astronauts were relieved of low back pain when they were in anti-gravity environments. They found that spinal disc heights were increased during space missions. With these scientific findings, a new technology was developed called spinal decompression Therapy.

How is Spinal Decompression Therapy Done?

You are fully clothed during spinal decompression therapy. Your healthcare provider fits you with two harnesses and you lie down on the computer-controlled table. The computer setting are then customized to your specific condition.

Does it Work?

In a recent study of Spinal Decompression Therapy 219 patients who had at least 4 weeks of symptoms from either degenerative disc disease or herniated disc were treated. The results were amazing! 86% reported immediate symptom relief and 84% were pain free 90 days after their treatment was completed.
