All procedures are administered with the patient fully clothed. For lumbar (low back) procedures, the patient is comfortably positioned on the table, and the pelvic restraints are adjusted to secure the patient’s pelvis. The upper torso is also captured by a comfortable securing system. The Patented Pelvic Tilt section will be electronically tilted, so that specific spinal segments can be targeted. With precise and pain-free computer controlled tension, the disc segments are gently distracted.
For cervical (neck) procedures, the cervical unit is electronically tilted to the angle required to target specific segments of the cervical spine. The Cervical Restraints are designed to comfortably capture the base of the patient’s skull for controlled distraction.
Many people describe spinal decompression therapy as a very subtle stretch in the low back or neck, and it should not cause symptoms to worsen. It is actually very common for people to fall asleep during the procedure!
