How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works

Spinal Decompression works to alleviate stress and compression on the damaged spinal disc, giving it opportunity to heal.

Spinal decompression technology allows for customized and specific spinal decompression care. Decompression forces are programmed to target the exact location of the damaged disc. The level of pulling forces is calculated specifically for each patient. The on-board computer monitors the decompression forces continuously and adjusts them as needed based on the body’s response to treatment. This ensures accurate and pain-free sessions to get rid of pain.
