Spinal Decompression

Between the vertebras of the spine there is delicate disc material, which helps to cushion your spine from the impact of daily activities such as walking, turning, sitting or lifting. Increases in pressure over time from having the wrong posture, or wear and tear from improper biomechanics, can cause the disc material to become damaged or diminish altogether. At ProBack Clinics, our most effective therapy for disc problems is our spinal decompression therapy.


What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression is one of the most successful non-surgical and non-invasive treatments that can target the disc problem in a safe and effective way.  The spinal decompression table uses a very small amount of your body weight to gently stretch the spine. This might sound daunting but it allows for the reduction of pressure on the spine, letting hydration and vital nutrients back into the disc space, which is crucial to allow healing to take place. Our spinal decompression tables are highly innovative. Their flexibility in settings mean each individual patient’s needs can be targeted effectively. Spinal disc injuries are notoriously difficult to heal because of the lack of blood supply to the area.

As disc problems are commonly found within the lower back (lumbar) or neck (cervical) regions, our spinal decompression table allows for the machine to be used on either area. Once you’re comfortably set up on the table, a gentle traction will be applied to the spine, the table will go through a rhythmic cycle to pump fluid and nutrients slowly back into the disc space, helping to begin healing the cellular damage from previous injuries. The resulting easing of spinal pressure creates the right environment for continued healing, even after the treatment time has ended.


Spinal decompression therapy can effectively treat a number of disc related conditions, including:

  1. Herniated or Bulging Discs
  2. Sciatica
  3. Pinched Nerves
  4. Degenerative Disc Disease
  5. Chronic neck or back pain
  6. Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Decompression Facts, Studies & Statistics

Many clinical facilities across the world have commissioned research into the spinal decompression table to get a picture of just how efficient it is. Their findings were remarkable, showing:

  1. 88.9% effective (Mayo Clinic Study), based on the results of 20 treatments over a six-week period.
  2. 9/10 Satisfaction Rates (Stanford University), based on statistics from 23 treatments over an eight-week period.
  3. MRI studies showed up to 90% reduction in disc bulges, based on a five-week protocol of 20 treatments.
  4. Patients in a study who had suffered chronic lower back pain for ten or more years, who followed a specific treatment protocol for two weeks, saw a reduction in pain levels by up to 50% (John Hopkins University)
