Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Treatment in Colorado Springs

Spinal decompression therapy was developed in response to the demand for safer, cost-effective alternatives to spinal surgery for:

  • Bulging, Herniated and Degenerated Disks
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms or legs

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

During spinal decompression a patient lies on a table with a harness wrapped around them for around twenty minutes. Connected to a computer, the harness actually sends pressure to decompress the spine. Distractive forces create a negative pressure in the center of the intervertebral disc, which creates a vacuum phenomenon that retracts or reduces the size of the herniated or bulding disc. The stretch helps bring nutrients and water back into the disc.

Testimonial

  • "My back has never felt better. Dr. Harlow took the pain away that I had been living with for over 20 years and didn't even realize it. I just went back again last week and it was another amazing experience. I sleep better than I have in a long time."
