When the spine is compressed, it leads to a range of painful symptoms and health challenges. The vertebrae (bones) are separated by discs that act as shock absorbers and smooth spine mobility.

When the spine is compressed, it puts pressure on the nerves within the spinal column, causing pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and other symptoms. Spinal decompression therapy relieves pressure, restores healthy nerve function, and alleviates chronic pain.
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment performed to relieve pressure on the spinal discs and critical nerves within the spine. Spinal decompression therapy works by gently stretching the spine to create negative pressure between the discs to reduce pressure on the nerves and promote healing. Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective alternative to surgery for many people with spinal conditions.
At the Arch Medical Group locations in Florida, spinal decompression therapy is performed with an advanced device developed for the most comfortable, effective experience. While resting on the treatment bed, expect to feel a gentle pulling or stretching sensation, which is not uncomfortable or painful. Many patients experience immediate freedom from back pain, neck pain, and sciatica, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal pain relief.
The recovery time after non-surgical spinal decompression could vary, depending on the severity of the condition being treated. The spinal decompression treatments at Arch Medical Group are minimally invasive and do not involve incisions or anesthesia, and involve little to no recovery time. It is common to experience mild soreness in the treated area for a few days after the procedure, but generally, patients simply return to normal activities with no significant side effects.
Many patients achieve the optimal result with a series of treatments over several weeks. During the treatment period, you may be advised to avoid some types of physical activities or exercises. Spinal decompression surgery may be combined with other non-invasive, effective treatments to achieve an optimal outcome.
