Spinal Decompression Therapy is a Non-Surgical Therapy for Back and Neck Pain

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical therapy to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries.
Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics, repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress your discs or to slip out of alignment, which then applies pressure to your discs.

Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve and degeneration of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself that are needed to heal.  Traditional corrective treatments include surgery or chiropractic adjustment. Spinal decompression therapy is an alternative FDA-approved treatment option that has shown very good results.discforce

Spinal decompression treatment is non-invasive and provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a decompression table. You are strapped to the table so that as it moves, it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). A computer controls the distraction force, which is applied between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls the spine apart, elongating it and creating a negative pressure within the disc, creating a small vacuum within the disc which pulls nutrients and fluids back into the disc. Studies show that it creates a -100 mmHg within the disc, while standing creates a +100 mmHg and sitting creates a +140 mmHg. This negative pressure is what pulls fluid and nutrients back into the disc, thus increasing the disc height.

Much like a repetitive stress injury, the decompression works in very minute increments. Over time, that adds up and lets the disc reshape itself, heal and get the proper flow of nutrients going to fight off brittleness and future injuries.

The safest and non-invasive form of spinal decompression is when therapy is performed by a qualified professional using a decompression machine, which is especially effective for the treatment of herniated or bulging discs. This therapy can relieve back pain or neck pain. This treatment, spinal decompression therapy, normally takes from 15 to 24 treatment sessions.

    I’ve had this done in the past and was the best treatment ever. What is the cost per session and does medicare pay for it?

    • Glad to hear about your success. Medicare does not cover this procedure. The cost varies depending on the number of treatment necessary as well as what additional therapies are recommended to augment the procedure. I suggest that you give us a call so that we can have some background information. Then we can give you a better answer. Sorry for being so vague here. Our number is 704-837-2420. Thanks Hugh.

  2. Hi! I live in constant back pain. I have DDD. I ice it and stretch often, with zero relief. I crack my lower back very often. Also, I probably need an xray to confirm the stage and its possible I have pinched nerves. I am very interested in your services. Thanks for your time! Tiffany

  4. I fell down 10 flights of steps at my home about 7 years ago, and also fell in a restaurant on a cement floor. Have been to 2 different Chiropactors. But my back keep going out if I just sit down incorrect or just move in the wrong way (Help). I got your phone number, and will be giving you a call to see if I am a candidate. Thank you

  5. Hi, i am attracted by what you have invented. But is that the only center of decompresion? I think estramonte chiropractic has it too. Is it different from their? I want to know.

    • I do not know what Estramonte does in their offices. There is no mention of spinal decompression on their website.

    • We do not recommend decompression specifically for scoliosis. There may be an underlying cause of the scoliosis that can be improved by spinal decompression thus improving the scoliosis. This needs to be consisdered on a case by case basis. I would suggest that you set up a no cost consult to see if we can help. If you do, bring any xrays or mri’s and we’ll take a look to see if we can be of help. Dr Haas is one of just a handful of doctors in North Carolina that has completed the spinal decompression certification.
      Our office does offer chiropractic services.

    I have lower back pain- the chiropractor says its from my left leg being some many mm shorter than my right leg…..I am 36 and asked – it took 36 years for this to pop up?
    Says I need to do back exercises daily. Uses a tens unit on me and the table that bends a person.
    Just tired of having no relief-
    Do you feel I could benefit fro your office?

    • I suggest that you set up a no-cost consultation with our doctor. Bring your xrays and/or MRI for him to look at if you have had them. He will be able to tell if we can be of help. Call us at 704-837-2420. We hope to see you soon.

  7. You can call us at 704-837-2420 to arrange a 15 minute no-charge consult with our doctor to see if we can help your case. Bring your x-rays and MRI.
