KDT Spinal Decompression slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, taking damaging pressure off the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to re-position bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.
At the beginning of each session, you will be comfortably fitted with a specialized harness. As a session commences, you will notice a slow lengthening in your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure
The treatment process is safe and relaxing. While some patients with extensively injured discs have reported mild discomfort during the first few treatment sessions, their discomfort subsides upon subsequent visits as the discs are relieved of pressure.
Treatment sessions typically last less than 20 minutes and most patients feel pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. It is important to remember however, that pain subsiding does not infer that your discs and spine are healed, so it is critical that patients stick with the treatment protocol prescribed by their practitioners in order to achieve the full value of KDT Spinal Decompression Therapy.
