How Decompression Therapy Works

Decompression therapy is a non-surgical procedure that effectively treats back and neck pain due to various causes including injury, obesity, inactivity or over-taxing of the cervical and lumbar muscles. Decompression therapy uses gentle intermittent digitally controlled distraction (stretching) which unloads and separates the joints of the spine reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints.

Decompression therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each decompression therapy session therapeutic laser is applied as well to help reduce inflammation, enhance pain reduction, and promote further healing of injured tissues.

Decompression therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle. Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals.
