Spinal decompression therapy is a leading non-surgical alternative for disc related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine. The therapy uses simple, yet sophisticated equipment which causes a vacuum affect. The gentle distractive pulling helps to unload forces drawing healing nutrients and blood flow to the injured area.
Your comfort and safety are of primary importance therefore you have several positioning options. Only if you are 100% comfortable will you be able to achieve the ultimate objective of complete rehabilitation of your discs and spine. During the therapy you will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which gently graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, and many patients feel pain relief with as few as 6-8 treatments. It is important to remember however, that pain subsiding does not mean that your disc and spine are healed, so it is critical that patients stick with the treatment plan Dr. Ybarra prescribes in order to get the full value of therapy.
