Frequently Asked Questions About Spinal Decompression Therapy
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, comfortable treatment for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. During the procedure, you will be cycling through distraction and relaxation phases. Through proper body positioning, a spinal disc can be placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.
How does negative pressure affect a disc?
During spinal decompression therapy, a negative pressure is created within the disc. Because of that negative pressure, disc material that has protruded or herniated can be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, and permit healing.
What system is used for this purpose?
After significant research, Complete Health & Chiropractic Center and Complete Health of Lawrenceville chose the Triton DTS system manufactured by the Chatanooga Group, the premier manufacturer of physical medicine equipment. We have a decompression unit in each of our locations.
Who can benefit?
Spinal Decompression therapy is designed to unload the spinal disc. Any back or neck pain caused by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, bulging or protruding discs, spinal stenosis, and pinched nerves (sciatica).
Spinal decompression therapy is usually not recommended for pregnant women, or patients who have severe degeneration or nerve damage. However, every patient is evaluated on an individual basis.
Are treatments painful and how many will be needed?
In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the session.
The specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination. Most of the plans fall within 12 to 30 treatments.
Will my insurance cover the treatment?
Most medical insurance plans do cover this treatment. Our office will verify coverage before the treatment begins.
