Spinal Decompression stretches the spine
Salyer Chiropractic Spinal Decompression
With Spinal Decompression you only stretch the spine. Regular traction stretches your spine and muscles simultaneously, and your body naturally “braces” for the next stretch reducing the ability for the treatment to be effective. This “overall stretching” commonly used in traction can also trigger painful muscle spasms.
Decompression therapy is different than conventional spinal traction, it alternates between stretching and relaxation. The relaxation stages trick your body into staying relaxed and therefore maximizes the load and the effectiveness of the treatment.
Decompression tables should also allow your doctor or therapist to target your treatment area in three different dimensions. This isolates specific spinal discs and allows them to “target” their treatment, while traction often just “stretches” the entire spine.
Your healthcare provider can completely customize your decompression treatment. They can change the amount of stretch (load), the quantity of stretch/relax stages, the amount of time it takes to reach each peak stretch/relax stage and many other settings. This allows them to personalize the session for your age, weight and condition and to adjust your treatments as they track your results. Learn more about decompression tables.

The following is interesting facts about some of our equipment
and how the spine is effected.
The HillDT Display
The 16:9 widescreen, ClearType full HD display with 1080p resolution is touch-sensitive and can be navigated quickly using the tap of your finger.
A Healthy Spinal Disc
The spinal disc acts as a strong elastic pivot for each joint segment of the spine, providing stability and allowing a relatively wide range of motion
A Compressed Disc
When a disc starts to lose its strength and pliability, however, it can cause a range of painful and potentially debilitating symptoms.
