How it Works

We will assess your condition and determine an individualized treatment for you. You will carefully lay on the decompression table, which will gently stretch your spine for a moment, then release. This oscillation process will continue over the course of approximately 20 minutes as it works with your body to allow gradual, cooperative repositioning and revitalization of the spinal discs and surrounding structures. The mild pull increases the space between your spinal vertebrae, creating a type of “respiration” of the fluid that surrounds the joint. The damaged disc receives nourishment and gets rid of inflammatory cellular waste, enhancing the healing process.

The increase in nourishment and space for your nerves decreases the body’s pain response and aids in providing relief. If the undesirable symptoms have been present for a while, it may take several treatments to rebuild muscle memory around the optimal spinal orientation.

Once patients have graduated from their treatment plan, they will often choose monthly or biweekly spinal decompression sessions to maintain results. One of the doctors will help determine the best treatment option to keep you healthy.
