Q: What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
A: Spinal Decompression Therapy is the only non-surgical treatment that is truly most effective for severe cases of disc herniation, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on the nerve root. It's an amazing healthcare technology providing a greater than 80% success rate!
- Bulging/Herniated Discs
- Back Pain/Neck Pain
- Facet arthrosis
Q: How does Spinal Decompression Therapy function?
A: Spinal Decompression Therapy has two functions:
- The first function is to "suck in" disc herniations or bulges. As the Spinal Decompression table pulls, the space between the vertebrae increases. This space between the vertebrae is occupied by spongy gelatinous disc, and as this space increases a negative pressure is formed in the center of the disc causing a "suction effect" that draws in herniations or bulges within the disc. When the bulge or herniation is drawn in pressure is taken off the "pinched" nerve.
- The second function of Spinal Decompression is to thicken and heal the disc. As the Decompression table pulls, the space between the vertebrae consecutively increases and decreases, setting up a "pump effect" that rushes nutrients, blood and oxygen into the disc, and forces wastes out of the disc - this heals and strengthens the disc and increases disc thickness.
Q: Does Spinal Decompression Therapy hurt?
A: No, in fact most of our patients fall asleep on the table. We have created a comfortable and soothing environment for you to relax and enjoy your treatments.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Patients typically receive 10-30 sessions of decompression therapy. Treatment plans are customized for each patient`s condition.
Q: What happens on my first visit?
A: We`ll sit down and discuss your complete case. I`ll also do an exam so I can learn more about your particular condition.
Q: Is Spinal Decompression Therapy the same as traction or inversion tables?
A: No, traction and inversion tables are different. A Spinal Decompression table pulls in a logarithmic way that causes the small muscles of the spine to relax so the disc can decompress. MRI studies comparing traction to Spinal Decompression Therapy have shown that only Spinal Decompression Therapy pulls herniated discs back in. (1)
Q: Is Spinal Decompression Therapy FDA Cleared?
A: Yes, Spinal Decompression Therapy is FDA cleared.
Q: If I already had surgery, will this therapy work for me?
A: Yes, there is still a very high chance for real relief!
Q: What are the odds of it working for me?
A: Greater than 80%!
Q: Is Spinal Decompression Therapy Affordable?
A: Yes, Spinal Decompression Therapy is very affordable. The cost truly depends on each patient`s condition and insurance plan. We also have payment plans available for those who need them in order to make this treatment affordable for everyone.
Q: Will insurance pay for this therapy?
A: Yes, Insurance companies usually pay for parts of the treatment. Each insurance plan varies so it's important for you to bring your insurance info with you.
