If you suffer from constant back pain, shooting pain down your legs, numbness or tingling of your lower limbs, or if you have been told you have ‘arthritis’ in your back, then you can benefit from Spinal Decompression! Spinal Decompression can help alleviate all of these symptoms if used in the right situation. Our trained health care professionals will examine you and determine if spinal decompression is your best course of treatment.
At Cornerstone Therapy & Wellness our Chiropractors and our Physiotherapist can offer Spinal Decompression as part of your treatment plan.
You will remain fully clothed during the spinal decompression therapy. You will be fitted with a harness around your pelvis and another around your trunk. The force of applied distraction is regulated by a computer that is programmed on an individual basis by your healthcare practitioner. Each session is approximately 20-30 minutes long. Spinal decompression tables include sensors that indicate whether a patient’s muscles are resisting the stretch being applied. As the muscles resist, the table reduces the poundage of the pull until the muscles relax.
