Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is reversing the compressive forces on the disc due to gravity and daily activity or injury. By means of lying on a table and having a machine stretch your spine in a certain direction thus separating the space that the disc occupies. A relaxing feeling of being stretched, is the experience of most patients. The effects are less pressure on the nerve and repositioning the disc to its proper place.

We have three tables that perform disc decompression (traction). Application for the neck or the back.

Very good success with past cases, including treatment with disc decompression, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, diathermy, exercise, mobilization, manipulation.
