What to Expect During Your Spinal Decompression Therapy Session:

Before Treatment

Our chiropractors often recommend that spinal decompression therapy patients arrive for their appointments well-hydrated to ensure the body will be best prepared to stretch and minimize cramping or any other issues. Before using the machine, you’ll have a short consultation with the chiropractor to discuss what issues you’re dealing with, such as a car crash injury, and what the spinal decompression therapy will be like, as well as to create a treatment plan.

State-of-the-Art Decompression Machine

Central to your session is our advanced spinal decompression machine. This sophisticated equipment provides controlled, targeted traction to the spine, creating a negative pressure within the intervertebral discs. You’ll lay down on the machine and get strapped in. Once you’re comfortable and ready to go, the machine will apply gentle, slow traction to extend the spine and release any compression. It will stretch the body incrementally until it reaches a full stretch based on each patient’s range of motion.

Duration of the Session

While the duration of each session may vary, you can generally expect to spend around 15 minutes on the decompression table. This timeframe allows for the gradual and controlled decompression necessary for effective treatment.

Sensations During Treatment

Most patients find the spinal decompression experience to be comfortable and even relaxing. You may feel a gentle stretching sensation as the machine works its magic, creating space within the discs and promoting the influx of nutrients for healing.

After the Session

Once the session is complete, you’ll want to stay hydrated for the rest of the day and continue to stretch at home with your chiropractor’s recommended routine to encourage continued decompression and prevent any regression. Depending on the patient, they may also recommend scheduling additional sessions in the future.
