Spinal Decompression Therapy is designed to unload the spinal disc. Any back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy, including herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves). During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum effect accomplishes two things. From a mechanical standpoint, disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc can be pulled back within the disc by the vacuum created within the disc. Also, the vacuum within the disc stimulates in growth of blood supply, secondarily stimulating a healing response. This results in pain reduction and proper healing at the injured site.
Laser Therapy is the application of low incident levels of laser energy to achieve an ever-increasing number of clinical indications. This therapy is delivered using dedicated systems, designed to produce optimum levels of laser energy at specific wavelengths to achieve the desired therapeutic effect in complete safety.
