Read on to learn more about the benefits that spinal decompression can have for you.

What is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy may be referred to NSSD or SDT (Spinal Decompression Therapy). This form of treatment is for people who have symptomatic diseases or degeneration in their spinal discs. The goal of NSSD or SDT is to re-establish disc health. The goal is to restore optimal health to the spine, which is dynamic in nature. This means that it can be acted on through gentle physical force. If manipulated correctly and routinely, discs can be normalized and pain-causing conditions may be reversed or healed.

The theory behind spinal decompression is to create negative pressure that encourages repositioning and to create lower pressure that will promote healing.

How Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy Works

In a spinal decompression therapy session, you will lie on a table. This mechanism is designed to put you in a state of traction, which is essential for this kind of therapy. You will be harnessed to the table so that you are completely comfortable and secure. 

The upper part of the table will not move. The lower part of the table will move. This is what creates the tension. The automated process is carefully controlled by our expert care providers. 

After a short time, after you have been gently and carefully moved back and forth, you will be unharnessed and get up from the table. You should not feel pain during the process or after treatment. It is likely that you will feel stretched and relaxed.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy

For many people, undergoing surgery for back pain is not a first choice. In addition to requiring significant recovery time, it is also not a guarantee to provide long-term relief. This dilemma was the catalyst for the development of this kind of therapy.

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy has been shown to:

  • Decrease pain
  • Rehydrate spinal discs
  • Reduce disc bulging/protrusion size
  • Improve your functional abilities
  • Decrease the likelihood of surgery
  • Reduce or eliminate pain
