Laser Spinal Decompression
Heal spinal discs and relieve pain
What is Laser Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Laser Decompression therapy is a technique used to help heal spinals discs and relieve pain. Using infrared lasers with a controlled and adjustable power output of over 500 milliwatts, cold (or class IV) laser therapy penetrates the affected tissues, such as muscles, ligaments, discs and bones.
When the laser penetrates the tissue, this causes a chain of events that lead to the production of adenosine triphosphate, which the cells use for energy. This photochemical reaction results in an increase in the cellular metabolism rate which expedites cell repair and the stimulation of several systems: the immune, lymphatic and vascular.
This stimulation to the cells enhances healing, improve nerve function, increase vascular activity, reduce pain and reduce inflammation. The entire process is relatively quick, taking only 5-25 minutes per session.
Spinal Laser Decompression is precise computer controlled tension that gently distracts the specific disc segment to reduce pain caused by:

About Laser Decompression Therapy
The Spinal Disc Decompression Table is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause the pain, and facilitate in the natural healing of discs. With precise and painless computer controlled tension, the specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the pressure inside the disc. The Spinal Decompression Table comfortably and accurately increases intersegmental disc space, providing non-surgical decompression of discs. Tears in the disc annulus can be repaired, and sufficient fluids and nutrients can be introduced into the nucleus to reverse the disc degeneration, bulging discs, and collapse resulting from an injury. Rehydration of the disc nucleus can restore disc height which relieves the pressure on inflamed facet joints.
It is a medical fact that damaged discs seldom heal on their own, as the discs are constantly under pressure. The Decompression Table uses clinically proven principles to reduce the pressure inside the discs. Decompression promotes the transfer of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen back inside the discs and results in the retraction of bulging or herniated discs, providing relief of nerve pressure and pain.
Through recent clinical trials, utilizing MRI, pre and post treatment on a similar table, disc herniations were reduced 10% to 90%, according to the number of treatment sessions. Patching and healing of the annulus was also evident.
A typical daily treatment consists of 30 minutes on the decompression table. All treatments are administered with the patient fully clothed. The patient is positioned on the table and comfortably secured to a fixed part of the table. The table section will be electronically tilted, so that specific spinal segments can be targeted with precise and painless computer controlled tension. The specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the pressure inside of the disc. The treatment is comfortable, and some patients fall asleep. Most patients will find relief of their symptoms between 5 and 10 sessions while the average recommended course of treatment is 20 sessions. Ideally, the treatments are performed daily with a rest on the weekend.
At the conclusion of the treatment series when the disc injury has been corrected, patients are given strengthening exercises to avoid repeat injury. After only a few weeks of treatment, research has shown amazing results in relieving the debilitating pain caused by degenerative, bulging, herniated or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and many failed back surgery cases. Most patients are able to return to normal levels of activity or recreation in just a few weeks time.
