A Non-Invasive Solution for Chronic Back Pain at  Pacific Physiotherapy in Guelph, Mississauga, & Hamilton

Our state-of-the-art traction machine employs a gentle stretching motion to administer spinal decompression. It is a viable alternative for chronic back pain treatment without resorting to surgery. This stretching motion effectively alters the force and orientation of the spine.

The transformation induces a counter-pressure within the spinal discs, relieving stress and pressure. This process facilitates improved oxygen and nutrient flow to the discs, promoting their healing.

Determining Eligibility

Our experienced chiropractor and physical therapist will comprehensively evaluate your condition when you visit our clinic. Based on their assessment, they will determine if non-surgical spinal decompression is a suitable option for you. This therapy is not recommended for patients with the following conditions:

  • Pregnancy

What to Expect During Spinal Decompression Treatment at Pacific Physiotherapy in Guelph, Mississauga, & Hamilton

You will remain fully clothed throughout the treatment session and lie face down or on the table. A harness will secure around your pelvis and upper body. Our physiotherapist will skillfully control the computer, tailoring the treatment to your needs. The machine initiates decompression by gently stretching the upper and lower body in opposite directions. On average, a therapy session lasts between 30 to 40 minutes.

Explore Non-Surgical Options

In cases where surgical procedures are recommended to relieve spinal strain, patients often face associated risks, including infection, bleeding, clotting, anesthesia complications, and more. Seeking our care before symptoms worsen can provide alternative techniques to expedite recovery.

Addressing Disc-Related Issues

Spinal discs pressed against spinal nerves can cause severe body pain. Neglected, a bulging disc can rupture, leading to the leakage of inner material irritating local nerves. Degenerative disc disease can result in fluid loss and bone spur development, demanding prompt attention.

Problematic spinal discs often contribute to chronic neck, back, and sciatic nerve pain. Spinal decompression therapy offers a groundbreaking, non-invasive approach to alleviate painful symptoms. We specialize in spinal decompression to assist numerous male and female patients struggling with chronic disc-related pressure and discomfort, offering relief when traditional treatments fall short.

FAQs Spinal Decompression

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment technique that relieves pressure on spinal nerves and reduces symptoms of herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis. It involves gentle spine stretching to create negative pressure within the discs, allowing bulging or herniated material to retract and promoting the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrients into the discs.

What conditions can spinal decompression treat?

Spinal decompression treats spinal nerve compression conditions like herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, facet joint syndrome, and sciatica. It alleviates symptoms like back pain, neck pain, radiating arm or leg pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness.

Is spinal decompression safe?

Spinal decompression is safe and well-tolerated when performed by a trained, qualified healthcare professional. It is non-invasive with minimal risks and side effects, but it may not be suitable for patients with spinal fractures, severe osteoporosis, spinal instability, or pregnancy.
