Are there any risks and side effects of Decompression Therapy?
Decompression Therapy is generally considered safe. The most common side effect reported by patients is soreness for the first two weeks as the body tries to accustom itself to the treatment. Patients with severe disc herniation may experience slight pain during the first two weeks of treatment until the disc retracts back.
Patients with the conditions listed in Question 2 should seek clearance from their doctor before proceeding with Decompression Therapy.
How long will it take for me to see results?
This varies amongst patients as patients have reported improvements to their symptoms as early as 10 sessions. This depends on various factors such as severity of symptoms, frequency of treatment and patients’ lifestyle.
How long is each session?
Unlike regular adjustments, all Decompression Therapy sessions are standardised at 20 minutes unless prescribed differently by the doctor. Additionally, patients would undergo icing at the treatment area to prevent post-treatment soreness.
