How Spinal Decompression Works?

Spinal Decompression Table Therapy has turned into nothing short of a miracle for thousands of low back pain sufferers. This technology which first introduced in the early 1990’s has quickly rose to the ranks of one of the absolute best therapies for Lumbar Disc Herniations. Each person is carefully selected and must be qualified to receive these treatments. Through MRI or CT Scan imaging we can verify the level of disc pathology as well as rule out certain nonqualifying conditions the person may have. Once completed, the patient will receive between 20-25 treatments at 20-minute sessions. The purpose is to allow the computer enhanced technology to guide the machine to the exact location of the disc herniation. By doing this time an again, the disc will begin a reduction of pressure/inflammation and pain, followed by rehydration of the disc, allowing the disc to move into the correct position.


The doctors offer a no charge consultation to see if you are a candidate for the table and read any previous MRI films of your low back.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that can help relieve back, neck, and limb pain and discomfort. A motorized traction device is used in this treatment to gently stretch the spine. This relieves pressure on the discs and joints, improves circulation, and helps the body heal. Some of the benefits of Spinal Decompression include : Pain relief, improved mobility, reduced need for medication, and improved quality of life!

Is it Good for my Condition?

Spinal decompression therapy may be a helpful treatment option for you if you experience persistent neck or back pain. A non-invasive, non-surgical treatment called spinal decompression can help reduce pressure on the spinal discs and nerves, promoting better blood flow and healing.

Recovery Time

Your recovery from spinal decompression surgery will take some time. Reaching normal mobility can take anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks on average. The precise period of time depends on your general level of health and how active you are while recovering. Yet since non-surgical spinal decompression is a non-invasive procedure, there is no need to be concerned about a recovery period. You don’t need to take time off after each session; you can just get back to your regular schedule. Moreover, physiotherapy preparation for spinal decompression surgery may be required; this might add extra time to your schedule and is not normally included in the non-surgical decompression process.

Aftercare Instructions

There are a few things you may do at home to hasten your recovery and prevent relapse.

  • Be active: Maintaining a healthy back requires exercise, but it’s crucial to prevent strain. Walking and swimming are both excellent low-impact exercises.
  • Keep proper posture: Good posture relieves stress on the spine and back.
  • Stop smoking; it can hinder recovery and raise your chance of recurrence.
  • Controlling your weight: Your back is put under stress by extra weight.
  • Sleep on a firm mattress since it will support your spine and back.


Back surgeries as a treatment for back pain have a failure rate that can range from 10% to 74%. Most patients report a pain reduction of about 50%, but very few report complete relief, and frequently, the pain returns within a few years. Unless you have no other option given the hazards and length of the surgical procedure, such iffy odds of success might not be worth it. With far less dangers, non-surgical spinal decompression offers a successful treatment for back pain.


Spinal decompression surgery is accompanied by soreness and discomfort, as with any surgical operation. Although while the severe pain often subsides after 4 weeks, it can take up to 6 weeks for it to completely go away. Non-spinal decompression has little, if any, side effects and no associated pain with the procedure itself. You may experience pain relief sooner, and you can be sure that the procedure won’t lead to any more soreness. It may still take 4 to 6 weeks to experience long-lasting relief.
