Its full term is Spinal Flexion Distraction Decompression but we call it “Spinal Decompression” for short. This is a well researched and documented spinal adjustment that helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by:

  • Dropping intradiscal pressure as -192mm Hg

  • Reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
  • Returning motion to the spinal joints

How do I know if Spinal Decompression is right for me?

The first step is to have Dr. Hamdon examine you.  After your initial exam he will know if you are a good candidate for Spinal Decompression.

Do I need a prescription from my family doctor?

No, you do not.

Is Spinal decompression covered by my insurance?

Yes, if you have Chiropractic coverage under your extended health plan, then the Spinal Decompression can be billed under your Chiropractic coverage.

How many Spinal Decompression treatments will I need to feel better?

This totally depends on each patient. Typically at the most you should start feeling improvement within 3 treatments. Usually, in most cases a total of 12 treatments is all it takes to resolve your condition.

Will I feel more pain?

No, in most cases patients describe the treatment as a gentle pull or stretch.  Some patients even say it feels like nothing is happening; but rest assured a lot is happening to help your condition.
