Spinal decompression therapy involves a non-surgical medical treatment for severe chronic low back pain and neck pain. In spinal decompression therapy, the injured area is distended and relaxed in specific phases to achieve the proper position of spinal vertebrae.
The alignment of the spine is brought about using a sophisticated computer system and its advanced software, called Triton DTS. With this method, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within the disc. We, at Dr.Spine, specialize in spine decompress therapy in Bangalore.
How is a Spinal Therapy Done?
During Spinal Decompression therapy, the vacuum effect facilitates two things;
Disc material that is herniated or protruded outside the normal confines of the spinal cord can be pulled back into the normal position with the aid of the vacuum created within the disc. From a mechanical standpoint, spinal decompression reduces or completely relieves a patient’s complaints of a disc herniation.
Secondly, the vacuum effect within the disc creates a lower pressure in the disc and thus facilitates the influx of nutrients to the damaged discs and tissues, thus enhancing the healing at the injured site.
What are the Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

How long does a Spinal Decompression Therapy session last?
A Spinal decompression therapy session typically lasts for about 20 to 45 minutes. Of course, treatment time depends on the extent of decompression needed and the type of problem the patient experiences. The overall treatment protocol includes 15-30 treatments usually performed 3-5 times in a week.
Are there reasons I should not get Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is usually not recommended for the following conditions:
• Pregnant woman
• Patients who have severe osteoporosis
• Patients with cancer/spinal tumors,
• Patients with Aneurysms
• Patients with severe obesity,
• Patients with severe nerve damage, and
• Patients who have undergone spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws and metal plates or “cages”)
However, every patient is evaluated on an individual basis.
Any Side Effects?
Decompression therapy can be a legitimate alternative to surgery. Spinal decompression therapy has been certified as a gentle non-surgical treatment, by the USFDA. With that said, as with any health care treatment, there are a few side effects that may occur. Most of them are minor and temporary as well as avoidable. We will be glad to go over this area in more detail during your visit.
Cost of Treatment
The cost of treatment is a fraction of the cost of surgery. Spinal Decompression Therapy is verycost-effective. In addition to savings in the cost of the treatment itself, there is relative “down time”. You may continue to work and perform activities of daily living throughout the duration of treatment, and there is no recovery time involved.
