Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression is a gentle procedure, using state-of-the-art technology to treat pain in the neck, back or extremities related to a spine injury. Mild distractive forces unload the spine to promote increased blood flow and nutrient exchange in damaged tissue.

Patients will experience several cycles of stretching and relaxation generally resulting in decreased pain. Typical sessions last about 15 minutes and are used in conjunction with other aspects of physical therapy treatment such as heat/cold therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, therapeutic exercise and manual therapy.

With this treatment, my goal is to help heal the disc while improving muscular support of the neck and back. Clinical results are effective in a large majority of patients. Most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete their entire physical therapy program.
