Spinal Decompression Therapy

Very few offices specialize in spinal decompression like we do. At Pullano Physical Therapy, we have the staff, experience and equipment to treat patients needing spinal decompression.

Spinal decompression is used for relieving pressure on the vertebrae and nerve structures by manipulating the supporting structures of the spinal column. This treatment offers patients improved range of motion, pain reduction, and often eliminates issues within arms or legs affected by the compression within the spinal column.

Spinal decompression may be accomplished by manual decompression or the use of adjunct equipment such as spinal decompression tables.

Manual decompression is often used on the cervical spine as the muscular structures are not as strong as other regions of the spine. This hands on treatment allows instantaneous feedback top the provider through their sense of touch as they can feel release of tension and immediately adjust their pressure or technique being used.

In addition the manual techniques we also offer two sate of the art, computerized decompression tables which are used for cervical and lumbar decompression protocols. The use of these tables is included in the many treatment protocols used at our practice. Within 8-12 treatments with these tables are patients have seen significant, lasting improvement.
