Patients who qualify for Spinal Decompression should be measured and fitted to the treatment unit. Prone, supine, and side-lying protocols are available for lumbar decompression. Cervical decompression is done in the supine position. Precise positioning for each patient condition is critical for outcomes to be in the high 80% region. Compliance should be encouraged to be 100% from every patient who is accepted for treatment.
The specific treatment is determined by a doctor or therapist. The computer controls the variations in the traction allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle reaction and subsequent compression typical of traditional or conventional traction devices. The pre-programmed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction allows for complete levels of spinal decompression and disc hydration.
Proper patient positioning and specific technique insure expected results.
