What is spinal decompression therapy, and can it help me?


Spinal decompression therapy is a treatment method that uses a mechanical traction device to reduce pressures between the parts of your spinal column.  This therapy can help relieve pain, numbness or tingling caused by certain conditions, including:

  • Disc herniation / disc bulge / disc prolapse
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Nerve impingement / “pinched nerve”
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Osteophyte formations
  • Radiculopathy
  • Spinal arthritis

Your SmartLife physiotherapist or chiropractors will select parameters based on your characteristics and condition. Treatment time is between 15-30 minutes, and can be a stand-alone treatment or as part of a physiotherapy or chiropractic treatment.

Visit us or call us today to ask how SmartLife spinal decompression therapy can help you achieve your personal best!  (This service is only available at Town centre Rehab Clinic).
