What is Decompression?
Spinal decompression is an inherently safe procedure that can be used, without complications, for a wide variety of anatomical dysfunctions of the low back, which are commonly associated with back pain such as Sciatica, Herniated Discs, Degenerative disc disease, Facet Syndrome, Spinal Stenosis, Radicular pain in the arms and legs, Post-Surgical Syndrome. This treatment has been advertised vigorously over the last several years by pain management clinics to treat back pain and neck pain. Over 65 million Americans are expected to experience back problem this year. Most patients will undergo between 15 to 20 sessions over the course of five to six weeks, with typically five sessions a week for one week, three sessions a week for three weeks and two sessions a week for one to two weeks and the last week is focused on core stability rehabilitation and instruction on a customized home exercise program.
