Frequently asked questions about Spinal Decompression

Why is Spinal Decompression Therapy so successful?
During the procedure, the computer controlled decompression table cycles between distraction and relaxation phases. With proper positioning, a specific spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum effect accomplishes two things.

From a mechanical standpoint, protruded or herniated disc material can be pulled back within the disc relieving pressure on nerves. Also, the vacuum within the disc stimulates increased blood supply and nutrient exchange within damage tissues.

Since the disc is an avascular structure, it doesn’t receive fresh blood and oxygen with every beat of the heart. It requires “diffusion” created by motion and “decompression” to restore nutrients and enhance healing. This results in pain reduction and increased healing at the injured site.

Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is designed to unload the spinal disc. Back pain or neck pain due to a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy.

Are there conditions where Spinal Decompression is not indicated?
Spinal decompression therapy is usually not recommended for pregnant women, or patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage. However, every patient is evaluated on an individual basis.

How often do I take treatment sessions? How long does each session last?
Each decompression session requires approximately 15-30 minutes. Spinal decompression is usually performed 3-5 times a week for 10-30 sessions.

I have had spinal surgery, but continue to have pain. Can I try Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy can help people with back pain after failed spinal surgery. It can be performed in most patients who have not been left with an unstable spine after surgery.

Will Spinal Decompression Therapy treatments hurt? Is it safe?
Decompression Therapy is one of the safest and most comfortable therapies available for spinal conditions. Most patients described the treatment as mild stretch of their back or hips, and often fall asleep during treatment sessions.

Is Spinal Decompression Therapy new?
Traction has been used for hundreds of years but Spinal Decompression Therapy is very modern and technologically advanced. Scientific research and modern procedures have dramatically improved effectiveness and success rates.

Why the need for exercises and other therapies?
A gradual breakdown of the foundational support of your back is what puts undue stresses on the discs and eventually leads to injury, pain and loss of function. A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of decompression treatment.

Will my pain go away for good?
Although each case is unique, our clinical experience is that patients experiencing long-term pain relief or effective pain management completed the entire decompression program.

As with any comprehensive rehabilitation program for long term pain relief, it is essential that you continue your home care exercises and use discretion in some daily activities.

We take a different approach to your healthcare which you will notice from the minute you step into our waiting room.
The first thing you will enjoy is that there is little to no waiting in our waiting room.  This is because I only schedule one patient at a time.  One of the many benefits of not accepting insurance, is they can not limit the time or care I give to solve your problem.
An all too common complaint about other doctors’ offices has been “waiting an hour or more in the waiting room to see the doctor for 2 minutes.”  This is typically because the doctor has 5 or more patients booked at the same time and is going from room to room, maximizing the total number of patients seen in a day.
At Grabenstatter Wellness, this is never the case.  Here you will always receive comprehensive, individualized care.  It is my goal to get you feeling your best as well as functioning at your best.  I am committed to achieving this through utilizing my 17 plus years of experience as well as staying on top of the most up to date treatment protocols.
Thank You for considering Grabenstatter Wellness.  I look forward to the opportunity to help make you well.
