Three Phases of Care
Phase I is Pain Relief
As a general rule, most people
experience significant changes in
symptoms in the first three to eight Spinal Disc Decompression procedures. Occasionally, more advanced
degenerative conditions or multiple levels of herniation may take 10 - 15 sessions before realizing a major decline in symptoms. Relief response varies
according to age, body morphology and degree of severity.
Phase 2 is Correction
As strength is regained in the lumbar spine, circulation is restored to the damaged disc, and the healing begins. Correction implies that the process that leads to the painful episode has been slowed, stopped or reversed.
Phase 3 is Strengthening
Kinetic activity is reintroduced at this time to help strengthen joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments to help regain back strength and restore lost lumbar
Spinal Disc Decompression is a SAFE and PAINLESS treatment designed to correct the cause of neck or back pain and sciatica.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
No, as a matter of fact the treatment is very
comfortable and relaxing.
How many treatments are required?
You will most likely require 20-30 procedure
sessions to regain functional capacity, restore the spinal motion dynamics and decompress affected nerves.
How long does each treatment take?
Each hour long visit follows a simple protocol. We request that you kindly arrive 10 minutes early to complete a visual pain analog and prepare for your procedure.
What does a Spinal Disc Decompression treatment consist of?
Unless otherwise prescribed, the SDD procedure is 30 cycles of decompression of approximately 30 minutes. You are welcome to bring your favorite CD to enjoy while relaxing on the table, or choose from our audio library. During each procedure, you will be fitted with a pelvic harness and a chest vest for lumbar treatments. While you are comfortably positioned on your back, a knee wedge will
support your legs. The table slowly and gently
separates to relieve pressure that pinches the nerves. This allows for vital circulation to be restored to the damaged, painful areas of the lower back. This stimulates your body’s natural healing process.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes, Spinal Disc Decompression is often used with other forms of therapy. Often times we will
incorporate cold laser therapy, Interferential
muscle stim and/ or cold packs. All of these
procedures are designed to treat, correct and relieve pain and are very effective. These treatments are complementary and can be used with Spinal Disc Decompression to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
