Spinal Decompression Therapy

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, decompressive therapy designed to relieve back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy is non-invasive, FDA cleared, and clinically proven technique known to help alleviate pain associated for anyone suffering from neck pain, arm pain, back pain, sciatica, leg pain, herniated or bulging discs…even after failed surgery.

Why would I be interested in Spinal Decompression Therapy?

The appeal of non-surgical spinal decompression is that it is a non-invasive, non-surgical, drug-free alternative treatment for neck pain, arm pain, low back pain, sciatica, disc degeneration, disc bulges, disc herniations, and facet syndrome. Patients most interested in spinal decompression therapy’s effectiveness have often tried other conventional or surgical treatments that have failed. Decompression is also known to improve chronic low back pain conditions for some patients.

How does Spinal Decompression Therapy work?

Non-surgical spinal decompression is achieved through the use of a mechanical traction device called a spinal decompression table. The Spinal Decompression table at Massart Chiropractic decompresses your spine in a precise, computer-controlled environment that controls how much decompression force is applied to each patient’s spine. Spinal Decompression Therapy is customized to meet each patient’s needs and physical attributes. This enhanced control allows our non-surgical spinal decompression table to apply a traction force to the discs of the spinal column reducing pressure, unlike previous non-computer controlled traction tables.

How is Spinal Decompression Therapy different from regular traction?

Our computer-controlled spinal decompression table is the key. It controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle “guarding” that is typical in conventional traction devices. The benefit for you, the patient, is that you have a carefully controlled and customized therapy plan designed to achieve maximum pain relief.

Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Anyone with back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may find benefit from spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, or arm or leg pain/numbness.

Are there medical studies that document the effectiveness?

Yes, absolutely. One such study showed spinal decompression therapy to have a clinical success rate of 68.4%, far more effective than surgical options.

Can I just come in for Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Massart Chiropractic is a full-service chiropractic care provider. As such, we believe that spinal decompression therapy is one tool that we use in the chiropractic care process and does not take the place of proper, regular chiropractic care.

We only offer our spinal decompression therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care and not as a stand-alone service.

Are the sessions painful?

In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients may even fall asleep during the spinal decompression session. Our computer-controlled spinal decompression table ensures that each treatment is optimized for your particular body, virtually eliminating any pain during the treatment.
