So What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression works by applying a traction force to ease pressure and pain caused by pinched nerves along your spine. This treatment method is often beneficial for people with lower back or sciatica pain.

During this cutting-edge therapy, you lie comfortably on the decompression table in a supported position while the high-tech DRX9000 machine does its work. While you might think the treatment would be uncomfortable, many clients actually fall asleep during it! In general, it will take about 20 minutes each time you undergo spinal decompression.


What Makes Spinal Decompression Different Than Other Treatments?

Spinal Decompression in Franklin TNIf you experienced ongoing back pain before spinal decompression existed, you most likely would have been given pain medication, sent to physical therapy and told to stay away from physical activity. Your pain would completely change your life. And then, if those treatments didn’t work, surgery would have been your only option. Even chiropractors, who were able to help many patients through adjustments and other methods, sometimes needed to send clients for surgery in the past. Some medical professionals might still recommend this course of action.

But now, spinal decompression has changed the field. Thanks to this technique, many people can avoid surgery and improve their quality of life. This treatment method has helped many people overcome their back pain and even engage in physical activities again.

Clinical studies have backed up the effectiveness of spinal decompression for easing pain caused by:

  • bulging or herniated discs
  • sciatica
  • degenerative disc disease
  • unsuccessful back surgery
