About Spinal Decompression

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is non-surgical spinal decompression therapy?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a form of motorized traction for the spine, utilizing variable force, variable traction/relaxation times and in some case, variable angles of pull.
The theory is that the pulling creates a negative pressure in the discs, thereby diminishing or eliminating nerve compression, as well as improving blood and nutrient flow to the compressed discs.

What conditions are treated with non-surgical spinal decompression?
Spinal decompression can be used as a non-surgical treatment for:
- low back pain
- disc degeneration
- disc herniations
- disc bulges
- sciatica
- facet syndrome

What are the common devices used for spinal decompression?
There are a number of different traction devices in the market, and new devices are added every year.
Common devices include:
- Vax-D
- DRX9000
- Accu-Spina
- Extentrac Elite
- Antalgic-Trak 

Would I have to stay at the hospital?
No. The spinal decompression treatments are done on an outpatient basis, either in a hospital or in a clinic.

Number of sessions required : Usually 20 sessions are required for optimum results.

Risks : Non-surgical spinal decompression is a safe alternative to surgical procedures, as long as it's done by a trained proffesional.
