Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Alternative Health & Healing Center uses the ABS spinal decompression machine to alleviate pressure around your spine’s discs and nerves while rebuilding back strength. The spinal decompression system is a mechanized table that is FDA-approved, which works by applying gradual pressure to your back.


Your doctor programs the computer to treat back pain and spinal injuries, while the ABS system monitors your spinal tolerance and alerts the technician if adjustments to the treatment regimen are required. The amount of decompression and pressure applied are dependent upon the type of spinal injury and desired treatment method.


What can spinal decompression treat?

The spinal decompression machine is extremely effective in treating lower back pain caused by many underlying conditions, including:

 

  • Herniated discs
  • Disc degeneration
  • Sciatica
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • Post-surgical patients with failed back syndrome

 

With an extremely high rate of success in relieving back pain with long term results, you should consider spinal decompression therapy before surgical methods and prescription pain medication.


What should I expect during spinal decompression therapy?

Most patients receive daily spinal decompression treatments over five weeks. Therapy sessions are about thirty minutes long. You’re fitted with a harness and placed on the decompression table with support for your knees and legs to ensure comfort. You can remain fully clothed, and you will lie down during therapy.

 

Your doctor adjusts the computer based on your treatment needs, and the ABS machine delivers the treatment in the form of motorized traction to gently stretch your spine and alter its position and force.

 

Most patients do not experience pain or discomfort during spinal decompression therapy, and many even say the treatment offers immediate relief from symptoms as the machine targets your problem areas. If you do experience any discomfort during the process, communicate the issue with your doctor, and they can adjust the therapy to your level of tolerance.


Are results from spinal decompression therapy immediate and permanent?

Results of spinal decompression therapy are typically experienced within the first week of therapy, with 71% experiencing a 50% decrease in their pain following treatment. Four years after treatment, most patients report no back pain.
