Decompression Therapy is a Non-Surgical Procedure to help reduce or eliminate low back and leg pain.
An effective Cervical treatment for neck pain, arm pain, and headaches is also available.
Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical procedure that effectively treats disabling low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain, and headaches.
Decompression Therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal related syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.
Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle.
Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals.
Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases.
This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.
Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 15 minutes. During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues.
After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits.
Decompression Therapy is administered to patients fully clothed either face down or face up on the table.
Clinical studies suggest Decompression Therapy provides a majority of qualified candidates with initial relief within just a few sessions.
This proven, non-surgical approach could help you find the pain relief you need.

Whether you have back pain from aging, overuse, or an injury, our chiropractor can help. One possible treatment is spinal decompression. Dr. Daniel Rubin is our chiropractor in North Port, FL and he uses this tool to treat issues like sciatica. Spinal decompression at North Port Chiropractic, serving Port Charlotte, FL, and the general vicinity, is non-invasive and safe for a majority of patients.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical treatment used to promote healing in your discs. During your treatment, our chiropractor Dr. Daniel Rubin will ask you to lie down on a table. He'll connect you to a series of rigging that's connected to a mechanical device. The machine pulls the top of your body upward and the bottom half downward. As the machine stretches you, your vertebrae separate from the discs. Without the added pressure of your vertebrae, the discs are able to heal more effectively. It also reduces pressure on the nerves and soft tissue, which can reduce pain, discomfort, numbness, tingling, and several other symptoms. Additionally, moving the vertebrae and discs away from one another allows blood to flow more optimally throughout your back. As a result, your discs receive more nutrients, which enhances the healing process.
The Conditions Treated With Spinal Decompression
Our chiropractor may recommend spinal decompression for general neck and back pain. We use it on patients who have work or sports-related injuries as well as injuries from a car accident. An example of an injury that we use spinal decompression for is a herniated disc. A herniated disc occurs when part of the outer shell of a disc tears. Since the shell holds the contents inside, it's possible that the disc will leak. The contents of the disc places pressure on the nerves and surrounding tissue, resulting in nerve-related issues and pain.
Sciatica often occurs as a result of pressure on your sciatic nerve. Our chiropractor may recommend spinal decompression to reduce some of this pressure.
Some conditions happen as you age, such as spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and bulging discs. Spinal stenosis is a condition where your spinal column narrows. Decompression therapy can help relieve pressure on the nerve roots. Degenerative disc disease, on the other hand, is an issue that happens when the discs in your back begin to change as you age. A bulging disc happens when the shell of a disc wears out, and the contents push on the shell. Decompression therapy can take the pressure off the disc, so it can heal properly.
