Our Hill Decompression Table is computer-controlled, consisting of 8 different programs to treat a wide variety of spinal conditions. This has been clinically proven to have high success rates of over 90%. It utilizes oscillation (pulling and relaxing motion) to reduce reactive muscle–spasms that could work against the decompression motion.
Our Hill DT separates the vertebrae slowly until the intradiscal pressure is reduced and a tiny vacuum is created. This tiny vacuum encourages rehydration of the disc, enhance blood supply, nutrient, gas and waste exchange which are all crucial to boosting the healing processes in the injured discs. This process is known as imbibition.
Decompression therapy also removes pressure off the spinal nerves and drastically minimizing pain and disability. Hill DT is able to strengthen muscles and ligaments, and rehabilitate arthritic joints.
Safety and Effectiveness
Is it safe?
Yes. It is an FDA approved, computer-controlled device that utilizes tension that is a maximum of ¼ of the patient’s body weight. This is within safety limits and is painless. The force used for decompression is always set within the patient’s tolerance level. Most patients comment that it “feels good”. There are some cases where patients do feel mild soreness and discomfort after the treatment and this is usually temporary. This is also part of the healing process. With continued treatment and tissue healing, this sensation will subside.
Is it effective?
The treatment results will vary based on each patient’s condition, the chronicity of their injury and individual responses. Our Hill Labs DT has been shown to have over 90% success rate.
Spinal Decompression Treatment is non-invasive and provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a highly specialized decompression table. You are rested securely on the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls the spine apart elongating it and creating a small vacuum between the vertebrae which rehydrates the disc back into shape.
