What is Decompression Therapy?

Decompression therapy is an FDA-approved method of relieving pain and disability by repairing damaged spinal discs and reversing nerve degradation.  Following examination by the chiropractor, a computer-controlled device gently distracts (pulls very slightly apart) your spinal discs.  This decompression of the discs lets oxygen and blood flow into the affected areas to speed up healing and relieve pain.

The therapy is totally safe and comfortable for all subjects.  The system has emergency stop switches for both the patient and the operator.  These switches are a requirement of the FDA and terminates the treatment immediately, avoiding any injuries.

Are the treatment results permanent?

This therapy has an impressive 86% success rate in treating herniated and degenerative discs with a 4% reoccurrence rate after one year.  Typically additional treatments are not required after the completion of the treatment protocol.  However, as with any treatment there are always severe cases that involve particular job/lifestyle activities that may require re-evaluations.
