What is Spinal Decompression?

Non-surgical spinal decompression is a non-invasive treatment for a variety of neck and back conditions including:

  • Disc bulge/herniation
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Facet arthropathy
  • Radiculopathy/radiculitis
  • Sciatica
  • Post-laminectomy syndrome
  • Opioid addiction due to pain management
  • Neck or back pain without a clear causation or positive findings noted on imaging

These conditions benefit from restoration of the proper dynamics of the anterior motor unit of the spine, primarily the intervertebral disc. Through gentle, repetitive axial loading or distraction of the spine, a physiological change occurs at the disc space. This allows for rehydration of the disc and the surrounding tissues which assists the body’s natural healing process.

Considerations for Recommending Non-surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

Potential Candidates may include:

Cannot pass the anesthesia assessment
Diabetic or pre-diabetic
Previous surgical complications
Chronic low back or neck pain without any clear cause on imaging
Wanting a conservative option to surgery for initial treatment
Patients without insurance or financial means to pay for surgery


Cardiovascular compromise or clotting disorder
Spinal Instability
Cauda Equina or saddle paresthesia
