What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a modern, non-invasive solution to treating people who suffer from neck or back pain, and does so without the use of surgery or medication. Over time or due to injury, the discs in a person’s neck and back can become compressed, and lead to more serious conditions including Bulging, Herniated or Degenerative Discs, Sciatica, or Facet Syndrome.

This pain which typically manifests as back and neck pain, can over time become associated in other areas of the body, such as the arms and legs. Many people who experience this pain are treated through traditional methods of ‘therapy’ in the form of medication and even spinal surgery, of which prove to show limited or no improvement. Although these methods may bring immediate pain relief, their effects are either temporary or carry a big risk.

How does Spinal Decompression Therapy work?

Spinal Decompression works by using computerised sensors to perform stretching actions on the spine to promote healing. It does this by very slowly and gently lengthening the spine and allowing the compressed spinal discs to decompress. By doing so, this allows the decompressed discs to absorb the much needed fluids, oxygen and nutrients that have become blocked over time. This triggers the body’s natural mechanisms to help revitalize and heal the soft disc tissue.

Is Spinal Decompression Therapy for me?

There are two different categories of people who will benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy

  1. People who have severe or chronic back or neck pain. This can be from:
    • Bulging, Herniated or Degenerative discs
    • Sciatica or nerve pain
    • Facet Syndrome
    • Worn or degenerative spinal joints
  2. People who have either been recommended back surgery or have tried it and have had no pain relief.
