Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy in Ottawa
Spinal decompression therapy is a non invasive modality used to relieve lowback and neck pain with or without referred pain, tingling and numbness in extremities. Non-surgical Spinal decompression therapy is a comfortable, non-invasive and painless procedure that focuses on the repair of damaged and degenerated intervertebral discs. This is done using a specially designed table with bio-feedback mechanisms used to traction the spine and create a negative pressure in the injured discs, with the goal of healing them and relieving back pain and/or leg pain. Spinal decompression has the capability of relieving pressure on the spinal nerves caused by disc herniations and degenerative disc disease, and is helpful for conditions such as sciatica, osteoarthritis and facet syndrome.
Specially designed spinal decompression tables use sensitive computer-feedback mechanisms to allow for maximum therapeutic results. The equipment is able to continuously monitor muscular reaction and compensate by re-adjusting the pull on the spine.
Each treatment is customized, based on factors such as the severity of the condition being treated, chronicity, as well as the patient’s age, weight and degree of sensitivity. This form of treatment can be administered by either the Physiotherapist or the Chiropractor.
