What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical procedure that effectively treats disabling low back, neck, radiating leg and arm pain, and headaches. Decompression therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal related syndromes by reducing the pressure on spinal disc and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning. Decompression therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle.

Decompression therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases. This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.

Decompression therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 12-14 minutes. After treatment, Dr.Hudson may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits. Clinical studies suggest spinal decompression therapy provides a majority of qualified candidates with initial relief within just a few sessions. This proven, non-surgical approach could help you find the pain relief you need.
