paul m.  asked on  Aug 24, 2012

A:

Sorry for the delayed response Paul. Spinal decompression is a non surgical therapy developed for chronic upper, mid or low back pain like acute/chronic sciatica. These tables are designed to gently, but strongly separate the bones of the spine to decompress discs. Pressures in the back can be as high as +180 mm of mercury during common daily activities. Decompression therapy reduces the pressure in the discs of the low back to -180 mm of mercury, allowing fluids and nutrients to re-enter the disc reducing swelling and relieving the pressure on pinched nerves. The treatment breaks the cycle of pain caused by bulging and degenerated discs. The treatment is performed with the patient fully clothed. They are fitted with a harness on their pelvis and are placed on the spinal decompression table face yp. The patient pse fitted with a shoulder harness to fix the top half of their body to the table. During the treatment, the bottom half of the table actually splits as the lower body is gently pulled eliciting decompression of the discs. This is followed by a rest period, then the cycle is repeated. The treatment consists of aprrox 15 cycles of pull and release and lasts between 15 to 16 minutes. After you decompression session we perform soft tissue work which can range from any number of things including but not limited to: Manual Therapy, E-stim, Stretching, application of topical pain relieving lotion called Sombra or Hot/Cold therapy. Hope this answers your question.
