Computerised Spinal Decompression Tanglin Singapore

Dr Schonfelder with patient on spinal decompression tableDo you have back pain or slipped spinal syndrome and want to avoid surgery? Spinal decompression may be the answer you’ve been searching for. This therapy has been proven to be effective, but it’s twice as effective when you use chiropractic and decompression therapy together. The two therapies combined can yield an impressive success rate of over 90%!

How Spinal Decompression Works

When a person has a disc protrusion, there needs an under-pressure created with decompression. The computerised decompression is smart as it opens and closes the disc in a gentle but increasing manner. So the body’s resistance to the area reduces and the disc goes back in.

A Noninvasive Alternative to Surgery

Once you start using decompression and chiropractic combined, you rarely will need surgery that can cost upwards of $70,000. For patients who have had disc problems for months, we recommend that they give spinal decompression a one-month trial to see how they do. For those who do give this therapy a try, most will not need surgery. We consider the combination of chiropractic and decompression as pure magic!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is spinal decompression painful?

No; not at all. Spinal decompression therapy treatments are considered to be gentle and comfortable. Most patients report feeling a mild stretching sensation on their back or hips, and often fall asleep during their therapy sessions.

What are some of the conditions that can benefit from spinal decompression?

Degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica, herniated disc, and spinal stenosis all may improve as a result of spinal decompression.

How long will my care plan be?

The length of your plan is dependent on the complexity of your condition and how much rehabilitation is required. We typically recommend three to five sessions a week for six weeks. We will evaluate your response and determine if you would benefit from additional sessions.

Research to Support the Use of Spinal Decompression Therapy

  • “Decompression, Reduction, and Stabilization of the Lumbar Spine: A Cost Effective Treatment: CONCLUSION: Eighty six percent of herniated intervertebral disc patients achieved ‘good’ (50-89% improvement) to ‘excellent’ (90-100% improvement) results with decompression. Sciatica and back pain were relieved. Facet arthrosis patients, 75% obtained ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ results with decompression. (Anesthesiology New Vol 29, no 3 , March 2003)
  • Surgical Alternatives: Spinal Decompression: CONCLUSION: 86% of the 219 patients who completed the therapy reported immediate resolution of symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the 219 patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment. It was shown to be effective for herniated and degenerative discs (Journal of Neurologic Research Vol 29, No 3, March 2003)
  • Efficacy of Vertebral Axial Decompression on Chronic Low Back Pain: CONCLUSION: This 144 patient study showed 76% achieved remission of pain. Except in emergent conditions, Vertebral Axial Decompression should be used on all conditions before surgery is undertaken (US Musculoskeletal Review 2007)
  • “Magnetic Resonance Imaging Findings After Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression”, the follow up MRI showed rehydration of the discs at L3/L4, L4/L5, L5/S1 of a herniated disc patient (American Journal of Pain Management Vol 7, No 2, April 1997)
