Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy – is a non-invasive treatment for many spinal conditions including:
- lumbar herniated disc and sciatica
- cervical herniated disc
- spinal joint immobility or facet syndrome
- post-surgical spinal pain syndromes
- neck problems
This therapy is available in only a few clinics in Dubai, and can help ease patients’ suffering, without the need for painful surgery or drugs.
Our doctors use a combination of Chiropractic treatment, Physiotherapy, Massage therapy and Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy to help you to recover as fast as possible.
You may be suitable for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy if:
- You have chronic or severe back or neck pain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and/or facet syndrome.
- You have had failed back surgery.
- You have been advised to consider surgery but you’re looking for a non-invasive alternative.
- You have cervicogenic headache.
How does the treatment work?
The patient lies on the Decompression table and straps are fastened. These are applied in the specific places, to allow a slow and precise stretch at the problem disc level or levels. Your parameters are entered into the program. The computer is then directed to target the exact spinal disc level or area in need of treatment. During treatment, negative pressure can be created within the disc. This helps the material that has protruded or herniated to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc.
During the 20 minute treatment most patients experience a gentle stretch in the lumbar or cervical spine as the table works at correcting spinal problems. Most patients find the therapy to be quite comfortable and relaxing. Often, patients listen to music or fall asleep.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is designed to treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.
The benefit of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is that it is a non-invasive, non-surgical, drug-free alternative treatment, which has been proven to work in a high number of patients. Both the lower back and the neck may be treated, in separate sessions. The treatment can be performed daily.
Research has shown that a course of 20 sessions can provide long term recovery, enabling the patient to return to an active, pain-free life. Some patients respond well in half this number of treatments. When combined with chiropractic and physical therapy sessions we see the fastest results.

How many treatments do I need?
Many patients report a reduction in pain after the first few treatments, which is a sign that the treatment is working. However, it is important to follow through and complete a full course of 10 – 20 sessions to increase your chances of long-term recovery. Stopping the treatment early, may result in a relapse as well as wasted time and money. Your doctor will monitor your progress and prescribe the correct course for you.
