What is Decompression Therapy?
Intervertebral Disc Decompression is a modern non-surgical technology providing decompression therapy to the spine. It comprises of a series of treatment sessions that are specifically designed for each patient.
1. Computerized & personalized program based on the patient’s pathology.
2. Mobilize and manipulate specific spinal segments to induce negative intradiscal pressure.
3. Designed to provide static, intermittent and cyclic oscillation forces.
4. Forces applied to a specific disc in variable direction, frequency and amplitude.
How does it work?
This technology is designed to provide non-surgical treatment utilizing differential dynamics. This relieves pressure on the spinal nerves involved, especially those associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and alleviates sciatica. The treatment protocol achieves these effects through decompression of intervertebral discs, unloading through distraction and positioning. Each treatment session is designed according to the level of problem. During the session, the patient is closely monitored and after 10 treatments, the patient is reviewed for progress which can be in terms of pain, motor activity, sensation, function & ROM.
