Using motorized traction to help relieve chronic or severe neck and back pain, non-surgical spinal decompression changes the position of the spine by gently stretching it. After taking the pressure off the spinal discs, located between the vertebrae, spinal decompression allows patients to experience improved mobility and flexibility as well as relief from pain. After decades of use, the benefits of this medical innovation have been repeatedly proven. Highly effective, spinal decompression is used to treat the following conditions:
- Chronic neck and back pain caused by injury or surgery
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Posterior facet syndrome (worn spinal joints)
- Diseased or injured spinal nerve roots
Non-surgical spinal decompression is an effective alternative to invasive surgery, harmful prescriptions, and painful injections. Coupling spinal decompression with other functional medicine protocols such as chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and acupuncture, often helps people experience a full recovery from chronic pain.
Certified in spinal decompression, Dr. Tim Kennedy offers patients the health benefits of this highly innovative functional medicine procedure, suggesting it for those patients that meet certain criteria for treatment. Because the procedure is not recommended for everyone, it is imperative that your specific condition is fully assessed before treatment begins.
