Decompression

decompression-t2Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy is non-surgical, non-invasive, and typically does not involve pain medications. The treatment is not only safe and painless, but also comfortable and relaxing. The course of therapy includes approximately 20 treatment sessions over 4-6 weeks. Each procedure is performed with a unique physio-therapeutic device and is performed by a certified clinician, specializing in back pain care. The treatment sessions are brief, lasting approximately 30 minutes.

How Does it Work?

Spinal Decompression Therapy distracts the vertebrae surrounding an injured disc 5 to 7 millimeters. The 25 to 30 minute treatment provides static, intermittent, and cycling forces on structures that may be causing low back pain. During treatment, intradiscal pressure is dropped from a positive 25 millimeters mercury to a negative 150 millimeters mercury. This negative pressure promotes the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the vertebral disc area, thereby re-hydrating the degenerated disc. Repeated pressure differential promotes retraction of a herniated nucleus pulposus (the elastic core of the intervertebral disc).

Spinal Decompression Therapy can:

  • reduce pressure on the vertebral joints
  • promote retraction of herniated discs
  • promote self healing and rehabilitation of damaged discs
  • thereby relieving low back pain.

Studies show that Spinal Decompression Therapy has an 86% success rate in treating serious and debilitating back pain, even in cases with multiple herniated discs and sciatica.

Testimonials
Decompression

In 2005, I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and was told there was nothing that could be done and I would have back pain the rest of my life. At times, I would have to take 5 Percocet a day for the pain. My husband recommended Dr. Grannis and thank goodness he did. After completing the decompression program, I am like a new person. It has been over a year since I finished and the pain in my low back is gone.
