Spinal Decompression

The Anti-Gravity Decompression Chair

Non-Surgical Back Pain Relief

Let Hope Health and Wellness help you get control of your back pain with the PROTEC Anti-Gravity Spinal Decompression Chair.

Decompression Therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal-related syndromes by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.

This treatment may help patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.

Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers, and technicians at major teaching hospitals.

How It Works

The PROTEC Anti-Gravity Decompression Chair is a patented spinal therapy system for cervical, lumbar, and shoulder pain and is the only therapeutic device on the market that administers Floating Manipulative Therapy (FMT) for both chronic and acute cervical, lumbar, and shoulder pain. FMT is a gravity-based, three-dimensional spinal therapy that uses the patient’s own body weight to gently decompress the spine and allow for therapeutic stretches in a full range of motion. It has clinical benefits for patients of all ages and mobilities in a variety of care settings.

The system takes an innovative approach to spinal treatment by leveraging the power of gravity. By lowering the seat of the chair, we increase disc space, so there is no weight-bearing load on the disc. While in an anti-gravity position, we can reduce the pressure on your disc and nerves and increase your mobility. Additionally, core stability exercises can also be performed in an anti-gravity position, further strengthening the muscles of your lower back.

The outcome is a significant reduction in muscular tension, ultimately contributing to an improvement in blood flow and circulation in a little as 10 minutes.

Studies revealed 95% average patient satisfaction with the PROTEC Anti-Gravity treatment over conventional therapy.

 

  • FDA Registered with two United States patents.
  • Only device to administer three dimension cervical and lumbar traction therapy
  • Rapid treatment for back, shoulder, and neck pain ailments.
  • Vertically oriented, gravity-based therapy.
  • A therapeutic alternative for older and less mobile patients.
  • Increased patient satisfaction.
Treatment

Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues.

After Treatment

After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits.

Clinical studies suggest Decompression Therapy provides a majority of qualified candidates with initial relief within just a few sessions.

Cervical Traction with PROTEC Decompression

PROTEC Decompression can also be used for cervical treatment. In cervical therapy, the most important factor is the cervical decompression angle. This treatment provides a simple way of changing the angle of decompression.
