Non-Surgical Spinal Decompressions for Faster Recovery and Lasting Results
Spinal decompression therapy is a safe, non-surgical treatment for various spinal issues. It works by stretching the spine using a traction table or other motorized equipment to ease pain and discomfort.
Our non-surgical spinal decompression can help restore your youthful range of joint mobility and flexibility. This is the exact reason why patients come to our clinic for treatment.
Spinal Decompression Therapy Cambridge – A Gentle Pull to Get You Going
Spinal decompression therapy has very few reported side effects and has been shown to effectively treat spinal disorders in patients who have had little success with previous treatment.
Spinal decompression gently stretches or pulls the spine with a highly specialized force, resulting in the development of negative pressure in the injured disc.
The disc bulge, also known as a herniation, pulls back from the affected nerve and then retracts back into the disc. On the other hand, the negative pressure enables the nutrients, oxygen, and water to be absorbed into the disc. It takes more than 4 to 6 weeks for retraction to happen, stimulating the torn and degenerated disc fibres to heal.
What to Expect from Our Spinal Decompression Treatments in Cambridge
During the treatment session, you will lie on a comfortable motorized, padded table designed to move the lower half. A harness attached to the lower table near your feet will be fastened around your hips or pelvic area to keep you in position. While the upper portion of the table remains stationary, the lower table to which you are harnessed slowly slides back and forth to provide relaxation and traction.
You will feel a gentle stretch in your lumbar spine or neck. This therapy makes patients feel comfortable and at ease. The majority of patients frequently fall asleep during treatment sessions and report a slight sensation of stretching on their back or hips. However, some patients may experience mild muscle soreness. To maximize the benefits of spinal decompression therapy, laser therapy, shockwave therapy, massage therapy, and/or chiropractic adjustments may be prescribed by our health professional.
Decompression therapy sessions typically last between 15 and 20 minutes, and they may also include additional treatment with our various health professionals. A thorough pre-treatment evaluation will determine how long a patient will need treatment. However, the treatment period will depend on their condition. Many patients experience significant and immediate relief after only a few sessions of therapy.
