Disc Decompression

The Island Chiropractic Centre has two stations to allow for 3D and Linear decompression, this assures our equipment to adapt to your needs instead of you accommodating to the equipment.

Biotechnology has made recent advances in spinal decompression which has evolved into a cost-effective elective nonsurgical treatment for herniated and degenerative spinal disc disease. Back Pain is reported as being:

  • The #1 cause for healthcare expenditures in the US.

  • The #1 reason for doctor visits in the US

  • The # 1 ailment cited in worker's compensation claims in the U.S.

  • The #1 cause of employee absenteeism in the U.S.

"Medicating the patients, just waiting until the disc has degenerated enough to extract it, costs the public millions of dollars. It takes a physical act to move the vertebrae and decompress the disc. Exercising without first correcting the imbalance will only cause further failure. Early mechanical correction can save society millions."

Specifically 3D decompression for herniated and degenerative spinal disc disease works on the affected spinal segment by significantly reducing intradiscal pressures. The 3D equipment conforms to the patient even with severe accommodative lean from the pain to gently correct the posture. Other tables force the patient lying on a flat table. In many cases, the patient has to counter the decompression by pulling with their own arms. 3D tables also have the added advantage of being able to address neck issues.

At the hands of the one of the most experienced disc treatment healthcare professional (discare.com) the 3D table will complement a "equilibration protocol."

Linear decompression works well for even compression with very minimal tilt or lean. This station, like all early linear decompression tables is specific to the low back. SpinalAid has gone beyond the limits of the manufacturer's training to assure peer treatment protocols and clinician training. Don't be confused by the brand name of one linear table over another the skills of the physician and the strength of the group supports the most advanced and current information to benefit you.
