Frequently Asked Questions
Who can benefit from Non-Surgical Spinal Decompressive Therapy?
Virtually anyone who has and is currently suffering from the agonizing effects of lower back and neck pain. Those who have been diagnosed with a disc condition in their back or neck. Even if you have already undergone back surgery and you still experience back pain and nothing seems to help, there's hope.
How does decompressive therapy work?
Simply stated, decompressive therapy works by reversing the compressive forces that are constantly applied on the delicate discs in the neck and back. These compressive forces over time cause the discs in the back to bulge or herniate thereby putting pressure on the delicate nerves of the spine. In some cases, it is documented in medical journals that this procedure can retract the disc bulge thereby relieving pressure from the nerves.
Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompressive Therapy painful?
