Frequently Asked Questions
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is FDA cleared and has a high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs…even after failed surgery.  It is a non-surgical, traction based therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and rehabilitation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.


How does this negative pressure affect an injured disc?
During spinal decompression therapy, a negative pressure is created within the disc.  Because of that negative pressure, disc material that has protruded or herniated can be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, and permit healing to occur.

What system is used for this purpose?

After a significant amount of research, our office chose the 3D Active Trac system manufactured by The Saunders Group. The 3D ActiveTrac is the smoothest performing, most advanced traction/decompression and mobilization table ever made. Its all-in-one design and state-of-the-art features give you the widest range of therapeutic techniques for treatment.
Designed by H. Duane Saunders, the 3D ActiveTrac is a revolutionary breakthrough in clinical treatment. The 3D ActiveTrac table adjusts in flexion/extension, side bending and rotation. This allows the clinician to accommodate painful postural deformities that are difficult to treat with any other traction/decompression system.

How is Spinal Decompression Therapy different from regular traction?
The 3D Active Trac controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle guarding that is typical in conventional traction devices. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction allows for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc rehydration.
