Back and Neck Computerized Decompression



Back and neck computerized decompression therapy is a computerized method of providing compressive strain/force relief inside joints.

At the core of it, what we will do is to provide a very safe decompressive force to a joint which may help to provide:

  • pain relief
  • soft tissue (joint, muscles, ligaments) stretch

specificly to tight/spasmic muscles, ligaments and joints of the back and neck. Especially when there is compressive/spasms that causes pains, nerve issues and muscle tightness.

Back and Neck Computerized Decompression

Back and neck computerized decompression therapy is the computerized version compared to manual hands-on - yes, we can do the spinal traction with our hands and body, but we found that in many patients, a careful and sustained traction is very beneficial to patients with back and/or neck pain.

However, we physically cannot sustain such decompression forces for long with our own hands and body, as we will fatigue; hence the computerized decompression therapy unit was brought in specificly for this purpose for patients who will benefit for longer sessions of decompression therapy.

Computerized decompression traction therapy is done using a very accurate machine (see picture above), after our senior sports/spine physiotherapists had assessed and treated your back and neck conditions first, and ascertained:

  1. if it's suitable for you
  2. what's the decompression force that's suitable for you
  3. how long this decompression force should be

We can and will only prescribe this service as and when clinically appropriate for our patients.

The computerized decompression therapy service we provide in Phoenix is customized to you, gentle and progressive.

We will not use pre-set parameters, as every patient is different, has different injuries and location and tolerarance - which explains why we need to assess and treat your condition first to determine if you're suitable for this service and what settings is best suited for you.

how long is each Back and Neck Computerized Decompression session?

Generally each decompression session would last at least 10-15 minutes, to max 20-40 minutes.

For additional layer of safety, patients undergoing this service will be given an emergency stop button. Frankly, it's never been used before but we will always be conservative to protect our patients.

Lastly, the computerized decompression therapy service can provide such a deep sense of relaxation for your back and neck joints that most of our patients often fall asleep on the traction table.
