A SAFE, EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR BACK AND NECK PAIN

Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine by using a traction table or similar motorized device. It is considered a safe and effective treatment designed to help relieve your acute back, neck or referred pain. Clinical studies of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy are reporting that a high percentage of patients show significant reduction of pain. A percentage reports the elimination of pain all together.

Spinal Decompression Therapy is an effective treatment for:
• Herniated disc
• Degenerative disc
• Facet syndrome
• Sciatica
• Post-surgical patients

SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

HOW SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY WORKS

Spinal Decompression Therapy works by restoring proper function to an injured disc. This is done by making a controlled, mechanical traction on the spine. During the pull phase, injured discs are gently stretched apart, producing a suction force inside the disc. This draws disc buldges and herniations back into the center of the disc along with oxygen, water, nutrients, and other healing substances. The end result is a strong, healthy, well-functioning disc.

MANY PATIENTS FEEL IMMEDIATE RELIEF

At Hummel Chiropractic, we are eager to help you learn if you are a candidate for this treatment method. It is important to complete your treatment plan to get the full healing process even if you start to feel improvement early on. It is not uncommon to experience a significant reduction in pain early in your treatments.

During each session, you experience multiple cycles of treatment, which may take 15 to 20 minutes to complete.  The process is designed to apply precisely-controlled tension along the axis of your spinal column, creating decompression of the intervertebral discs. The approach is fully automated and monitored by staff.

During the treatment cycles, you may feel some relief of the pressure in the area where your pain exists. During this time, your body is responding by flooding the area with valuable oxygen, blood, nutrients which help promote the natural healing process of your body.
