What is Spinal Decompression?

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive treatment for patients who suffer from neck and back problems. A decompression treatment slowly and gently lengthens or releases pressure in the spine through repetitive movements by a customized treatment table. The table pulls and releases, creating a pressure change within the invertebral disc, surrounding soft tissue, and joints. This pressure change allows the disc bulges or herniations and nutrients to be pulled back into the disc. Rehydration of the disc and surrounding structures creates a physiological change which assists the body’s natural healing process. Patients typically experience significant improvement within 20-25 treatments. Research suggests that continued improvement is seen up to four years following decompression treatment program.

How Spinal Decompression Works

A Formula for Relief

Through the logarithmic stretch and release protocols of the decompression procedure, negative pressure is created in the disc over time. This vacuum effect draws any herniated disc material back into the disc.

When Negative is Positive

By reversing the effects of axial load or compression in the spine, increased circulation occurs which aids in the healing process.

Disc Pressure Comparison

Life Changing


“Improved disc spacing, resulted in all leg pain without any need for surgery” 

After completing the lumbar decompression protocol of 24 visits using the HillDT table, there was a noticeable change in the lumbar disc height at L4/L5 vertebrae for this patient. The improvement is clearly notated by the vertical line demonstrating the increased space at the posterior margin of the disc. The patient fully recovered from all subjective complaints of lower back pain and right sciaitica.



After completing the cervical decompression protocol of 24 visits using the HillDT table, the cervical curve was restored to the normal lordosis correcting the patient’s forward head psoture. An increase in the disc height can be seen  from the pre to post film at the C5-C6 disc space. A significant increase in the size of the IVF of C7-T1 is noted in the post film. Decreasing the IVF encroachment or narrowing at C7-T1 reduced the numbness and pain in the patient’s neck and left arm. The patient reported a complete recovery of all symptoms after 12 weeks of care.
