Bellevue Spinal Decompression Therapy

A Breakthrough Treatment to Manage Pain and Optimize Function

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical and drug-free answer for injuries of the neck and lower back. Spinal Decompression therapy uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, non-surgical decompression to your spine, increasing circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain. Decompression therapy is an affordable and cost-effective treatment that is less expensive and safer than surgery.

The discs between the bones of the spine may lose fluid due to an injury or even under chronic stress with abnormal posture.  As a result, our spine compresses and there is less protection between each vertebrae as well as less room for the nerves connected to the spine.  This gentle procedure can provide relief as fluid fills the discs that have been starved of nutrition under compression.  This gentle therapy provides lower back and neck pain relief and is a state-of-the-art protocol for bulging, herniated or degenerative disc disease.

Non-Invasive Treatment for Spinal Disc Injuries

Spinal decompression therapy can be effective for several conditions like:

  • Herniated discs,
  • Bulging discs,
  • Degenerative disc disease,
  • Posterior facet syndrome,
  • Sciatica (pain stemming from problems with the sciatic nerve that often shoots down the legs),
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Arthritis of the spine.

How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?

Spinal Decompression Therapy gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints and muscular tissues, while enhancing the body’s natural healing process. 

Our doctors will create a treatment plan designed just for your specific case.  The staff will set you up on our decompression table where you will be put in the precise position for maximum healing.  The decompression table can be configured to help with many problems that originate within the spine, relieving pressure from the discs and nerves. It is important to note how important proper positioning and diagnosis, and again, our team thrives in this regard.

Once set up, the therapy will begin with cycles of gentle distractive forces to create decompression, the unloading of spinal pressure to improve blood flow and important nutrient exchange to the injured area. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation.  Often, the therapy lasts around 20 minutes.  Our patients are often so comfortable in this process, they will take a short nap.  This therapy is repeated as prescribed by our chiropractors to obtain your goals of care.  The precise distraction and proper positioning under the care of our team at Cummins, provides exceptional results.

Treatment times vary, but some people find relief after their first session.  Most treatment plans occur over a 6-8 week period and provide lasting relief that has addressed the root cause of one’s symptoms.  

Our patients find success in their treatment as spinal decompression therapy has proven in many peer reviewed scientific studies to be safe and effective.  See sources listed below.
