Spinal Decompression FAQs

Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc. These conditions include:

  • Herniated, protruding or bulging discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Facet syndrome
  • Arm or leg pain/numbness

Are there medical studies that document the effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Most certainly! One study used an MRI to document up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases. Other studies have reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved “good” (50-89% improvement) to “excellent” (90-100% improvement) results after completing treatment.

There are also studies on IDD Therapy specifically and how spinal decompression significantly relieved lower back pain over several sessions, helping patients avoid more invasive treatments like back surgery.

Are there conditions where Spinal Decompression Therapy is not recommended?

This treatment is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage. Patients who have had spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or “cages”) are also not good candidates. However, spinal decompression after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery can be performed.

What should I expect with Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Treatment begins with a series of sessions typically three to four times per week. Each session is approximately 15 to 25 minutes. Following each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or laser can be applied to help relax your muscles and ligaments.

After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain control and strengthen the co-contractor muscles which are responsible for stabilization.

Are the sessions painful?

The treatments are completely painless in almost all cases and some patients fall asleep during the session.

Do most patients receive therapy and rehabilitative exercises in addition to Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Supporting structures are treated with passive therapies (ice/heat/muscle stimulation), chiropractic adjustments and/or active rehabilitation in order to strengthen the spinal musculature, reduce inflammation and assist the healing process.
