What is Decompression Therapy? 

At our clinic, we pride ourselves on utilizing some of the most advanced decompression equipment available in the healthcare field. This innovative therapy is centered around a specialized decompression table, uniquely designed to provide optimal treatment for spinal issues. When patients lie on this table, our precision-controlled decompression system gently stretches the spine in a controlled, gradual manner. This process is not just about stretching; it’s a sophisticated therapy that targets specific spinal segments in need of relief.

The science behind our decompression equipment is rooted in creating negative pressure within the discs of the spine. As the spine is carefully stretched, space is created between the vertebrae. This negative pressure fosters an environment conducive to disc rehydration and healing. It’s particularly beneficial in the treatment of herniated or bulging discs, as it can encourage the retraction of the disc material, reducing or eliminating the pressure on nerve roots.

When utilizing our decompression equipment, we closely monitor the patient’s response to the treatment.  As the device gently stretches the spine, patients often experience a noticeable change in their comfort levels. By doing so, we can effectively alleviate pain and enhance the healing process in the injured areas

What Does Decompression Therapy Do?

Decompression therapy is a soothing, non-invasive treatment that alleviates spinal compression. It enhances nutrient and oxygen flow to the affected area, fostering a better healing environment for spinal discs.

How Is Decompression Therapy Applied?

During the treatment, you’ll lie comfortably on the decompression table. The device is programmed to apply gentle, precise stretching to your spine, focusing on the affected areas.  We are able to adjust the level of stretch down to the pound.

Does Decompression Therapy Hurt?

Patients typically feel no pain during decompression therapy. Instead, many experience a sense of relief and relaxation as their spine is gently stretched. The procedure is designed to be comfortable and soothing.

Our team is on hand throughout the entire procedure. If ever a patient gets too uncomfortable we have an emergency shutoff button that the patient is in constant crontrol of. The more you use the treatment, the less discomfort you’ll have. Most of our patients describe the feeling as a gentle yet comfortable stretch.

Is Decompression Therapy Safe?

Decompression therapy is not only safe but also effective in providing relief from chronic pain, enhancing mobility, and improving overall spinal function. Patients often report significant improvement in their symptoms following the therapy. Our tailored decompression therapy plans are non-surgical alternatives to address your specific spinal issues.

This is an outpatient, non-invasive therapy that has proven results for many patients. If you have questions about how decompression therapy can help you, contact us, and we’ll give you all the facts.

Decompression Therapy for Helena, MT

I can't recommend Dr. Bridge enough. He's super friendly, professional, and is very keen on helping his patients succeed in their treatments. I left every treatment feeling better after years of neck and back pain. The office is clean and well taken care of and the rest of his staff are super helpful and kind. If you're looking for a chiropractor, he's your guy. Ask him to adjust your ears, it's the best.

Jessica W. // Helena, MT
While physically preparing for a once in a lifetime hunting tag for this fall, a 30 year old back injury came back to haunt me this past August, grinding my preparations to a halt. Dr. Bridge was recommended to me by a chiropractic friend of mine. Dr. Bridge got me repaired and physically back in the game in time for late September in the mountains. This once in a lifetime experience and personal accomplishment would never had been possible without Dr. Bridge's care, expertice, and dedication to my health. My days are now pain free and my back gets stronger each week. I filled the tag on Nov 14th 2023.
