Spinal Decompression is a non invasive traction therapy that provides a linear force on the body to create a negative pressure and facilitate realignment of the disc. Mechanical Traction is safe and effective without the normal risks associated with invasive procedures such as injections, anaesthesia or surgery.
The appeal of non-surgical spinal decompression is that it is a non-invasive, non-surgical, drug-free alternative treatment for low back pain, sciatica, disc degeneration, disc bulges, disc herniations, and facet syndrome.
During the treatment, patients will go through the process of traction and relaxation and this will create a vacuum affect and re-position the disc. In conjunction to realignment of the disc, the vacuum effect will also encourage fresh blood supply which promotes healing.
Individual assessment of patient suitability will occur at the initial consultation however it is often not recommended for patients with severe osteoporosis, severe nerve damage, severely obese or pregnant women.
The treatment will usually take at least 45minutes and patients will usually have treatment at least 3 times per week.
