If you have frequent or chronic back pain, you know just how much it can reduce your quality of life. You can experience reduced mobility and loss of flexibility. Exercise becomes infrequent and difficult. But you don’t have to just endure it. Instead, you may be an excellent candidate for treatment involving spinal decompression.

Spinal decompression involves the gentle stretching of the spine to relieve pressure on one or several pinched nerves. The force and position of the spine are changed, which takes pressure off of the spinal discs. Spinal discs are cushions between the bones in the spine. Over time, negative pressure caused by this therapy can cause the retraction of bulging or herniated discs. Pressure can then be removed from nerves and other spinal structures. As a result, this can promote the gradual movement of water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs to create healing. Nonsurgical spinal decompression has been used to treat back and neck pain, sciatica-which is discomfort, weakness or a tingling sensation down the leg, as well as bulging or herniated discs, and worn spinal joints. The appeal of non-surgical spinal decompression is that, just like it sounds, it’s a non-surgical, non-invasive method of treating persistent back issues.

At Progressive Health and Rehab, we offer state of the art medical equipment and methods that utilise spinal decompression. This cutting edge treatment method creates a biofeedback loop between the patient and the computer. The computer then reads and measures the amount of tension placed on the system by the musculature of the patient. Next, it accurately adjusts the force in order to create incredible results.
