How Can Spinal Decompression Help?

It is a fact that damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal, as the discs are constantly under pressure – even while a patient is at rest. Aquafit creates innovative therapy plans that are customized in accordance with our patients’ v back pain problems.These customized plans, including Spinal Decompression, help patients to get rid of back pain.

Aquafit in London, Ontario uses clinically proven principles to non-surgically decompress the spine and reduce the pressure inside the discs. Spinal Disc Decompression can reduce the pressure inside the discs, shrinking disc herniation. Decompression draws in necessary fluids and nutrients that encourage the spine to begin repairing itself. Spinal Decompression is designed to facilitate the natural healing of the discs. The reduction of pressure inside the discs facilitates the transfer of fluids, oxygen and nutrients back inside the disc. This decompression results in the retraction of bulging or herniated discs, providing welcome relief from nerve pressure.

Spinal Decompression Treatment


Most patients will find relief from their symptoms after 15 to 20 sessions. Once the disc injury has been corrected at the conclusion of the treatment series, Aquafit patients engage in mobilization and strengthening exercises to avoid further injury. This enhances the rehabilitation process, giving our patients a greater range of motion, stability and the confidence to move freely.

Is Spinal Decompression for Me?

After only a few weeks of treatment, clinical studies have shown outstanding results in relieving debilitating pain caused by degenerative, bulging, herniated or ruptured discs. Further, patients have found incredible relief from sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and the consequences of failed back surgeries.

Once abnormal conditions have been ruled out, Spinal Disc Decompression has proven to be safe and without side effects or complications. Patients with conditions that compromise the integrity of the spinal column such as gross osteoporosis, sondylolisthesis grade 2 and above, fractures, tumors, or congenital pars defects are not candidates for Spinal Decompression. Previous spinal surgery is not contraindicated unless hardware (screws, rods, cages, pins, etc.) has been implanted in the back.
