Spinal Decompression at Onsite Health

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is an excellent choice for chronic low back or cervical spine conditions, including bulging, herniated or degenerative disc conditions. At Onsite Health, we offer spinal decompression therapy in conjunction with either chiropractic care or physiotherapy. Based on your condition and symptoms, your provider may recommend decompression therapy as a component of your care plan.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

The discs in your spine are donut-shaped, fluid-filled discs that serve as shock absorbers between the vertebrae. When discs are damaged, they can bulge out of place. When that happens, the bones of your spine can impinge on the nerves, causing pain that is often quite severe.

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy helps correct that situation using the same principle as traction. You lie on our computerised decompression table and we set the traction for the appropriate weight. The machine gently stretches your spine and then releases. It does this repeatedly over the course of your session.

As your spine stretches, it creates a vacuum effect that helps pull the discs back into place. It also creates space between the vertebrae to alleviate the pressure on the nerves that causes pain.

How Long Does It Take?

Every patient is different, but many report feeling less pain after just one session. It takes time for the body to heal, however, so we recommend several sessions over a period of weeks to achieve optimal results. Many patients continue with decompression therapy once a month to maintain their disc health.

A Non-Invasive Alternative to Surgery

Many people have been told nothing can be done for their disc issues or chronic degenerative pain except surgery. Spinal decompression therapy is a conservative option that may help you avoid the necessity for surgery. Since it often provides substantial pain relief, it may also help you reduce your use of pain medications.
