Schedule a consultation today to see if you are good candidate for spinal decompression or one of the many other treatments we offer to get relief.
What is Spinal Decompression and how does it work?
Spinal Disc Decompression uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, non-surgical decompression to your spine which increases circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain and dysfunction.
Once in place for the treatment the computerized equipment starts to pull in small increments, as set by Dr. Oberdorf. By using small increments the body is allowed to relax into the treatment which allows the treatment to be more effective and more comfortable. Once the desired amount of tension is reached it is held for 45-60 seconds (dependent on the condition) followed by a 30 second interval of a decreased amount of tension (approximately half of the upper limit). This continues for 15-25 minutes and then is followed by a slow incremental lowering of tension until no tension is left on the patient.
The table slowly stretches your spine and increases the space between the two spinal bones. It also sucks nutrients in and pushed nutrient out giving the disk the nutrition it need to speed up the healing process because discs naturally don’t have a large blood supply.
