Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression can help treat and relieve pain through a gentle pulling motion to the spine. By creating repetitive elongation and traction to the spine, the disc height is lengthened. This decompression creates a vacuum effect and draws in fluids which brings elasticity back to the spine and re-hydrates the discs. The entire process takes the pressure off the nerves in the spine, reduces pain, and restores motion to the spine. Visit our offices in Marina del Rey, CA and in the greater Los Angeles, CA area.
Spinal Decompression Q & A
What is does non-surgical spinal decompression treat?
Non-surgical spinal decompression has had great success in providing relief from conditions such as Pinched Nerves, Bulging Discs, Disc Herniations, Sciatica, Disc Degeneration Disease, Spinal Stenosis, and Facet Syndrome. The procedure is very relaxing and often completely pain free - many patients fall asleep during the course of the treatment.
What does non-surgical spinal decompression feel like?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is an overall relaxing treatment. It begins slowly while gently building the pulling pressure, creating a sense of relief in the spine. After the treatment begins, many patients relax and close their eyes for a little nap.
How long does the non-surgical spinal decompression treatment last?
Every care plan is individualized to each patient and before the treatment plan begins, you will meet directly with the doctor to go over the best care plan. Each spinal decompression session lasts around 30 minutes and a full course of treatments usually consists of 24 to 36 total visits.
Patients with sciatica, herniated, degenerative or bulging discs have tried many things to help their symptoms. Some of the more common attempted therapies are chiropractic manipulations, medications, physical therapy, injections, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, and even surgeries.
