Non-surgical Spinal Decompression

Located on Broadway, Vancouver, BC.

Non-surgical spinal decompression involves having the patient lie on a specialized table. The patient will be connected to a machine that gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure on discs, joints, and connective tissues. The level of tension is regulated by the machine and is set to a level determined by our practitioners.

Benefits from Non-surgical Spinal Decompression

Provides pain relief

Decompression can relieve tension in tight, spasoming, or injured muscles and stimulate the nervous system to release neuro-chemical signals that have an analgesic effect on the body. This can provide significant pain relief in as little as 1 to 3 sessions.

Relieves pressure on spinal nerves

Spinal nerves can get pinched when discs, bones, or other tissues encroach on the small spaces through which the nerves exit the spinal column as they go on to innervate the body. Non-surgically decompressing the spine increases the space around these nerves, which may otherwise have become impinged and inflamed, thus allowing these nerves to begin healing.

Promotes healing of spinal disc tissues

Decompression imposes a vacuum-like force on the spinal discs, which helps to draw healing fluids, cells, and other substances toward the damaged tissue.

Accelerates effectiveness of other healing approaches

At its core, spinal decompression helps to maximize your spinal health and function, and as we’ve heard the saying goes: a healthy spine supports a healthy body! By maximizing your spinal health through decompression, other therapeutic approaches offered at True Wellness, including functional medicine and cold laser therapy, tend to work better and faster.

Helps restore normal spinal disc and joint alignment

Things like stress, poor body mechanics, smoking, and other factors may cause joints to sublux (move out of place) or your discs to herniate. That same vacuum-like force that helps to realign the joints and discs, thus preventing further pain, inflammation, impaired mobility, and dysfunction.
