Spinal Decompression Therapy and Specialised Sciatic Care

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, traction-based treatment that helps to alleviate lower back, neck and sciatic leg pain. This procedure has been highly effective in reducing the pain associated with herniated, degenerative or bulging spinal disks.

How Does Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression therapy works by using a process known as distraction, which very gently and painlessly pulls segments of the spine in a longitudinal direction, using precise angles to target specific spinal discs. This creates a vacuum effect within the middle of the disc, which can help to reduce disc bulging.

At the same time, it also helps to draw fluid and nutrients into the disc, which will naturally encourage re-hydration. Chiropractic spinal decompression therapy can successfully provide relief for sciatic nerve pain, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, chronic lower back pain and herniated or degenerative discs.

What are the Benefits of Decompression?

Spinal decompression treatment is non-surgical, safe and painless, with several patients even managing to fall asleep during their treatment!

During the spinal decompression, there will be an immense reduction of the pressure felt on your painful tissues. This in turn, will help to reduce muscle spasms and improve your general mobility.

Alongside our spinal decompression therapy treatments, we also offer a rehabilitation programme for both postural and spinal correction in our Hillingdon clinic. This includes spinal manipulation, chiropractic care, physiotherapy and core stability training. Our rehabilitation treatment aims to improve the flexibility, mobility and strength of your spine, through exercises that strengthen the core muscles. This treatment works simultaneously with the disc decompression therapy to alleviate physical discomfort.

All stages of the decompression process and rehabilitation treatment are carried out in-house at our Uxbridge based health clinic, with specialist staff on hand to guide you through every step of the way.
