Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression therapy is the process of stretching the spine.

Spinal decompression can be administered manually or mechanically by using a traction table, depending on your needs.

Spinal decompression works by stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine. The pattern of alternating pulling and relaxing, creates a vacuum-like pressure, which allows disc material that was herniated or protruded, to be pulled back into the disc. It also helps promote the movement or pull of water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs, so they can heal.

Some indications that spinal decompression may be something to try:

  • Spinal nerve root impingement
  • Joint pain
  • Joint hypomobility (tightness)
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • DDD
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Radicular pain into upper extremities

Laser Therapy

Low level laser therapy is a form of treatment that applies light emitting diodes to the soft tissue.

Therapeutic laser therapy is often used to reduce pain, increase circulation, and increase mobility of soft tissues. Additionally, the application of laser can be helpful in the reduction of inflammation, reducing pain, and the healing of injuries and wounds.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves to treat injuries to the musculoskeletal system.

Therapeutic ultrasound is often used to reduce pain, increase circulation, and increase mobility of soft tissues. Additionally, the application of ultrasound can be helpful in the reduction of inflammation, reducing pain, and the healing of injuries and wounds.

Interferential Therapy (IFC)

The device transmits electrical impulses. Tissue and nerves are stimulated which begins the healing process.

IFC works to decrease swelling, inflammation, and pain. It restores and improves restricted movements and stimulate your body’s natural hormones and endorphins which can help your body heal faster. The stimulation of the muscles and tendons can have a post-injury strengthening effect.
