Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression is a unique method of treatment for back and neck pain and offers an alternative option for people who are struggling to improve their pain with traditional methods.

What can Spinal Decompression treat?

We have seen impressive results in our clinic using Spinal Decompression therapy, achieving an 80%-85% success rate for specific conditions. These include:
• Debilitating pain due to bulging discs
• Degenerating spinal discs and facet joints
• Herniated discs
• Chronic low back pain
• Lower back stiffness
• Sciatica or nerve pain
• Worn spinal joints
• Facet syndrome

How does Spinal Decompression work?

A Spinal Decompression table uses computerized sensors to perform stretching actions on the spine and promote healing. By stretching out the spine and releasing pressure on the discs, blood, oxygen and nutrients can flow and heal damage on any compressed nerves and discs.

This creates a revitalised environment conducive to healing both herniated and degenerative discs. Based on the client’s body weight, the severity of the condition and the duration of their symptoms, the Physiotherapist will create a specific treatment plan based on their individual needs.

How many sessions will you need?

Most clients require 10-20 sessions of Spinal Decompression to receive maximum benefits. You should start to see an improvement after 6 sessions. Of course, each person’s treatment plans will differ depending on their condition and needs, but a correct diagnosis from one of our physiotherapists will help put you on the quickest road to recovery using Spinal Decompression.

Your physiotherapist will be with you during all of your sessions and they will advise regarding the best exercises and treatment techniques to utilise in combination with Spinal Decompression to get the best results for your circumstances.

How can I get started with Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Receiving a correct diagnosis of your back or neck pain by a qualified physiotherapist should be your first step. By doing this, the physio will be able to determine what is the cause of your back pain. They will seek to understand the lifestyle factors that may have caused your pain, and learn about the symptoms you are experiencing. Then with this information, they will be able to create a tailored and individualised treatment plan that combines Spinal Decompression therapy with both hands-on treatment and an exercise routine to get you back to health, fast!
