Axial decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Axial decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.
Axial decompression is safe for most patients. It is a great alternative for drugs and surgery. During your consultation, we will do a complete examination to rule out any conditions that might cause a problem. Some contraindications are patients with advanced osteoporosis, pregnancy, obesity and extensive nerve damage. This will be discussed in further detail during your first visit.

Millions of Americans live with chronic back pain. If you have searched for any method to relieve your back pain, it is time to consider trying Axial decompression. You don’t have to live this way.
