Spinal decompression is a conservative form of treatment for the management of pain for patients suffering from neck, low back pain, and sciatica. Many patients have experienced relief of pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs, bulging or protruding intervertebral discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica. The theory behind non-surgical spinal decompression is a process whereby gentle forces are applied to the spine in a manner that maximizes spinal elongation.
Active release techniques: a form of stretching technique that requires active motion on behalf of the patient.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation: a form of stretching that combines both passive motions, in conjunction with isometric muscle contraction on behalf of the patient.
Rapid Release: a high vibration therapy that helps to reduce muscular tension, relax hypertonic muscles, and increase blood flow to the region by activating certain nerve endings in the muscle that respond to vibratory stimulation.
