80% of Americans suffer from back pain, but fewer than 5% require surgery to relieve their symptoms. Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy could help relieve severe acute or chronic pain in your neck, back, legs or arms due to:
- herniated cervical and lumbar discs
- slipped, ruptured or bulging discs
- disc prolapses, tears or degeneration
- spinal stenosis
- osteoarthritis or facet joint syndrome
How does Spinal Decompression work?
Using a specialized decompression table, the spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner. Separating the vertebra reduces the loading on the herniated or degenerated disc and allows the bulging area to retract back to its normal form. This allows space and relieves pressure on the spinal cord and exiting nerves. The gentle distraction of the discs can expand the discs, and allow vital nutrients and blood to flow back into the disc and promotes disc healing.

Dr. Ness is a certified Kennedy Decompression specialist. The Kennedy decompression technique when paired with the Triton DTS decompression table allows multiple positions for patient placement based upon their symptoms. Other decompression tables only allow decompression when the patient lies on their back.
Spinal Decompression therapy can take 12-24 treatments over a 4-6 week period to relieve the pain associated with disc injuries, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and neuropathy. When spinal decompression therapy is paired with Active Release Technique and cold laser therapy, people who are suffering from disc injuries and neuropathy recover more quickly. This combination of therapies will reduce pain and a patient’s dependence on opioids for pain relief, naturally without drugs.
