During the first week you can expect to be in our clinic for about thirty minutes as you will only be undergoing decompression therapy and physical modalities such as ice, heat or ultrasound if necessary.
During week two, three and four you can expect to utilize the decompression table, but core strength and stability exercises will be introduced to you as well. This will take anywhere from thirty to forty-five minutes per session.
Week five and six will be primarily core strength and stability exercises with an emphasis on proper form. We want to be sure you know how to exercise your back correctly so that you may continue to heal and stay healthy for a lifetime.
This treatment does not hurt, however most patients report feeling a gentle pull at their hips, back or neck. The therapy is comfort-based. Patients often report a sense of relief and relaxation during the session. Many patients even fall asleep!
