Before treatments begin, patients are diagnosed and evaluated to determine if they are a proper candidate for traction/decompression treatment. Diagnosis includes complete medical history, physical examination, diagnostic imaging, and other diagnostic interventions.
Patients will receive a complete plan for their treatment that may include physical therapy, therapeutic exercise, and cold laser therapy.
Healing an injury is one part of the treatment. Treatment will be combined with muscle strengthening exercises. Regular exercise will help to maintain back and neck health and reduce the probability of re-occurrence.
We are Cervical & Lumbar Traction/Decompression Experts
Our doctors are trained experts in the operation of the computerized Traction/Decompression table. The adjustable decompression table has the ability to adjust in three dimensions to treat your severe back conditions and cervical spine conditions. Comfort during the treatment is our number one priority.
Most Treatments are Completed in Less Than an Hour.
Your positioning and stabilization on the table add to your comfort level. The restraint worn when on the table is what allows the unloading of the spine and discs by the traction motor. It is a gentle distraction that allows for your accurate and focused treatment.
You Will Feel Gentle Stretching and a Sense of Relief and Relaxation
The gentle stretching and relaxing of your spine fosters a phenomenon called “imbibition”. In the simplest of terms, this is the way your disc gets nutrition. This pumping action promotes nutrition intake into your discs, something often lost in damaged and degenerative disc conditions.
You Should Notice a Reduction in Your Pain After Only a Few Sessions.
You must complete your prescribed treatment plan in order for you to get full healing results. The incorporation of a therapeutic exercise program is imperative to your full recovery.
