Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine, which takes pressure off the spinal disks and helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

Spinal Decompression

At Gilbert Physical Medicine we focus on providing safe, non-surgical and non-invasive chronic back pain treatment solutions for optimal pain relief. Spinal decompression is an effective option for treating a multitude of conditions related to back pain with FDA approved, patented technology. Conventionally, chronic back pain treatment has centered around medication and surgery as the only options for pain management. With spinal decompression, patients can experience pain and pressure relief and restored mobility while avoiding the risks of pain medication and surgery.

During spinal decompression, an FDA cleared machine is used to relieve the pressure off the vital discs that cushion the vertebrae in your spine. The technology gently stretches the spine and realigns the vertebrae to eliminate pain caused by compressed vertebral discs. Almost everyone is at risk for back conditions that can arise from normal aging, sports, and work-related injuries and poor posture. Spinal decompression has been successful in correcting:

Herniated discs
Degenerative disc conditions
Bulging discs
Facet Syndrome
Pinched Nerves
Radiating arm and leg pain

Spinal decompression helps to return the natural alignment of your spine and promotes natural healing by allowing increased blood flow to reach your vertebral discs. Most patients experience a reduction in pain as soon as seconds after their spinal decompression session with continued improvements after each treatment.

Is Spinal Decompression Right for Me?

At Gilbert Physical Medicine, our specialists conduct a thorough analysis of your spine and joint health prior to recommending spinal decompression treatment to rule out any conditions that may make spinal decompression unsafe. During your spinal decompression session, you will be closely monitored to protect you from overextension, pain or discomfort. Most patients report no side effects or adverse reactions from spinal decompression with a very rare chance of muscle spasms following the treatment. Spinal decompression is safe and effective and carries no chance of the dangers that accompany conventional surgical and pain medication approaches to chronic back pain.

At Gilbert Physical Medicine, patients are able to schedule their spinal decompression sessions to work conveniently with their schedule and experience real chronic pain relief without the commitment and recovery time of surgical options.

Non-surgical spinal decompression was associated with a reduction in pain and an increase in disc height. The correlation of these variables suggests that pain reduction may be mediated, at least in part, through a restoration of disc height
