Decompression Therapy

Disc Decompression

Spinal Disc Decompression with the revolutionary 3D AcuTrac is the state of the art treatment for the spine and discs. It is a NON-surgical, NON-invasive treatment, SAFE and Effective. The 3D AcuTrac combines traction, decompression and 3D movement all in one device. It allows us to position each patient perfectly for his or her unique problem.

Since the Spine moves in many directions it only makes sense that the table does too. After just one treatment on the 3D AcuTrac patients have reported less pain and more mobility. Disc Decompression technology gently relieves the pressure in the spinal discs to promote healing in the tissues of the spine over the course of the prescribed therapy.

Disc Decompression therapy is designed to CORRECT the cause of the problem, not just relieve the symptoms as many other therapy does.

Disc Decompression Therapy has been proven effective for:

  • Neck and Back pain
  • Muscle Tension Headaches
  • Neck and Back Herniated discs
  • Neck and Back Degenerative discs
  • Neck and Back Posterior Facet Syndrome
  • Cervical Radiculopathy
  • Sciatica, Lumbosacral Radiculopathy
  • Neck and Back facet syndrome
  • Neck and Back Spinal Stenosis
  • Neck and Back Pre & Post surgical patients
  • “Failed Neck Surgeries & "Failed Back” syndrome,

Every patient is evaluated on an individual basis to see if Spinal Decompression is right for him or her. Call to schedule an examination with one of our physicians to see if you qualify for Disc Decompression Therapy and get rid of your pain for good!

How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?

The AcuTrac Spinal Decompression cycles through distraction, holding and relaxation cycles. These cycles allow a spinal disc to be placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it, which promotes pain reduction and healing. The vacuum effect accomplishes two things. From a mechanical standpoint, disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc can be pulled back within the disc by the vacuum created within the disc. Also, the vacuum within the disc stimulates in growth of blood supply, secondarily stimulating a healing response. This results in pain reduction and proper healing at the injured site. By tractioning the vertebrae the space that the nerves come through are opened relieving pressure on the nerves, which relieve the resultant pain, irritation, inflammation and muscle spasms. The tractions also stretches the muscles and relaxes them.

How often do I get treatments?

Each treatment session will include 3D AcuTrac spinal decompression built into a treatment plan designed specifically for your needs in order to achieve the best results. Each Decompression session lasts approximately 15 minutes. Spinal decompression is performed 1-3 times a week depending on your needs. The frequency will diminish as you improve. Each person is evaluated by the doctor throughout the treatment process and may change the recommendations as you progress.

What are the results of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Over 80% of patients have good pain relief. This success rate is significantly higher than surgical results.
