What is Decompression Therapy?
therapy is a non-surgical method of relieving pain and disability by repairing damaged spinal discs and reversing nerve degradation. Following
examination by the chiropractor, a computer-controlled device gently distracts (pulls very slightly apart) your spinal discs.
This decompression of the discs lets oxygen and blood flow into affected areas to speed up healing and relieve pain. || |

Are the treatment results permanent?
therapy has reported success rates of 86% in treating herniated and degenerative discs with a 4% reoccurrence
rate after one year. Typically additional treatments are not required after the completion of the treatment protocol. However,
as with any treatment there are always severe cases that involve particular job/lifestyle activities that may require re-evaluations
and additional sessions.|
The Stewart Chiropractic Center Decompression program is differentiated from
other decompression programs by the addtion of aggressive strength training and neuromuscular retraining to allow for a better
correction to the spine.
