  • What Is A Spinal Decompression Treatment Like?

  • Typical Treatment Regimen

    A typical NSSD (Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression) treatment regimen consists of about 20-25 sessions over four to six weeks. Some conditions require fewer visits; some require more. Many patients report relief from their pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions, and most experience dramatic pain relief after completion of their prescribed NSSD program.

    As a session of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression progresses, the discs are relieved of pressure, creating a vacuum of negative pressure within the disc. Many experts believe this decompressed state aids in pulling nutrients, oxygen, and moisture back into the discs.

    The Pressure Is Off!

    At the beginning of each session, you will be comfortably fitted with a pelvic harness designed to achieve optimal decompression of the lumbar spine. As a session of NSSD commences, you will notice a slow, gentle lengthening in your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure.

    The treatment process is safe and relaxing. While some patients with extensively injured discs have reported mild discomfort during the first few treatment sessions, their discomfort subsides upon subsequent visits.

    A patient safety switch, or quick-release clasps on the upper-body harness provide an extra safety feature, allowing you to stop at any point should you feel discomfort. Each treatment session lasts approximately 30-45 minutes.
