What to Expect From Decompression Therapy

A non-surgical treatment for pain and injuries, spinal decompression stretches the spine using an FDA-approved motorized traction table here in our office. Using the table, Dr. Dorsa is able to slowly relieve pressure from the soft, gel-like discs in your spine. 

During the process, your spine will be gently decompressed and lengthened using custom settings based on your needs. The process ultimately takes pressure off of the cushions between your bones that have flared up due to constant impact.

What Does Decompression Therapy Treat?

Decompression therapy can be used for a variety of different types of pain resulting from strain/sprain injuries or repetition. It is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from bulging or herniated discs. Many patients who are suffering from pain or loss of range of motion stemming from arthritic joints in the neck and low-back area also find great relief through spinal decompression. It is also a treatment option for sciatica, worn spinal joints or injured spinal nerve roots
