Spinal Decompression Therapy

What is spinal decompression therapy, and can it help me?

Spinal decompression therapy is a treatment method that uses a mechanical traction device to reduce pressures between the parts of your spinal column.  This therapy can help relieve pain, numbness or tingling caused by certain conditions, including:

  • Disc herniation / disc bulge / disc prolapse
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Nerve impingement / “pinched nerve”
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Osteophyte formations
  • Radiculopathy

Your LifeSmart physiotherapist or chiropractors will select parameters based on your characteristics and condition. Treatment time is between 15-30 minutes, and can be a stand-alone treatment or as part of a physiotherapy or chiropractic treatment.
