Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy is a recently developed modern, non-surgical approach for alleviating back pain, neck pain, and radiating arm and leg pain. The procedure uses FDA-approved equipment to apply calculated and graduated force to the spine. The process uses distraction and relaxation to retract a herniated or bulging disc over time. Pressure is slowly reduced on the injured disc tissue to alleviate pain and discomfort. Spinal decompression therapy is performed over a series of visits, typically spanning four to six weeks.

Am I a good candidate for spinal decompression?

This revolutionary treatment approach may be used for patients with bulging or herniated discs, sciatica, leg pain, spinal stenosis from neck or lower back pain, and failed back surgery syndrome. This form of treatment is effective for a host of conditions, but your doctor will have to determine if it is right for you. Those who are pregnant or have conditions, such as advanced osteoporosis, abdominal aortic aneurysm, fracture, metal implants in the spine, and tumors are not advised to undergo this procedure.

What happens during spinal decompression therapy?

During the procedure, you are fitted into harnesses that go around your pelvis and trunk areas. You will be instructed lie down and your spine is gently stretched by your doctor who is controlling a computer that has been set to your specific needs.

Is spinal decompression cost-effective?

Compared to having open back surgery or some other invasive treatment protocol, spinal decompression therapy is a very cost-effective alternative. Sessions may range anywhere from $30 to $200 per visit with a total cost of $450 to $6,000 over a series of treatments. Still, when it comes to non invasive treatments, the outcome for this treatment is positive and it is considerably cheaper than surgery.
