Spinal Decompression

Are you suffering with back pain because of a herniated disc, sciatica, a degenerative disc, spinal stenosis or arthritis? Do you experience back, leg, neck, arm or shoulder pain on a regular basis? If you have been experiencing daily burning, tingling or stabbing pain more days than you care to recall, then spinal decompression therapy may be for you.

On your visit to the clinic, our chiropractor Nicolas will assess your presenting complaint and judge whether you need some decompression therapy. If so, you will begin by lying face down and will be secured to the table by a comfortable harness system. The harness helps to stabilise both your hips and pelvis for decompression.

The decompression advanced computer controls automatically adjusts the proper angle of distraction (the amount of tension/traction that is gently applied) allowing specific discs that are causing your pain to be targeted for correction.

As you relax, a decompressive effect is then created on your back. This helps herniated material (often referred to as a slipped disc) return to its normal position and stops the pain that you may be experiencing. Patients often describe the treatment as a gentle, intermittent pulling of their back. The therapy can be so relaxing that many of our patients fall asleep during their treatment.

Patients will normally undergo a series of treatments over a period of 4-6 weeks, with each visit lasting between 10-20 minutes. Many patients get substantial relief after just a few sessions and some report significant relief after just one treatment.
