The Procedure

Home / Spinal Decompression Center / Procedure

Patients who are qualified to enter the Spinal Decompression Center are measured and fitted to the treatment unit.

Both prone and supine protocols are available for lumbar decompression. Cervical decompression is done in the supine position. Precise positioning for each patient condition is critical for outcomes to be in the high 80% region.

Compliance is expected at 100% from every patient who is accepted into the center so that excellent results can be a reasonable expectation.

The specific treatment protocol is determined by the doctor at the intake examination and evaluation. The computer controls the variations in the traction allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle reaction and subsequent compression typical of traditional or conventional traction devices.

The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction allows for complete levels of spinal decompression and disc hydration.
