Dr. Anthony Oberti and the staff of Whole Health Chiropractic are passionate about non-surgical treatment methods. Spinal decompression is a safe, innovative treatment performed with FDA-approved equipment to treat bulging or herniated discs. Herniated discs often have a direct impact on the central nervous system, causing more pain to the extremities. Spinal decompression is a unique treatment developed to target certain issues, and you should always consult your chiropractor to determine if this treatment is appropriate for your issue.
The equipment used for spinal decompression resembles a table but has moving parts. Depending on the location of the issue patients lie on their back or stomach, and are secured to the equipment with padded straps. The treatment alternates between applying distraction forces to the vertebrae and periods of partial relaxation. The result is the vertebrae slowly and gently separating from each other. This creates a vacuum effect that helps discs return to their natural position, relieving pressure from nerves. A full treatment plan typically lasts about six weeks, and most patients experience a steady improvement throughout that time.
