Spinal Decompression Therapy

As Alaska’s ONLY Kennedy  Decompression Technique Certified Practitioner, Dr Jordan Reidhead utilizes Spinal Decompression & Traction Therapy for the non-surgical treatment of spinal injuries and spinal pain. Decompression Therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, stenosis, posterior facet , sciatica, headaches, and other spinal related syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and unload facet joints using traction and body positioning.

Spinal discs are avascular structures, meaning that they do not have an direct blood supply like muscles in the body do. The lack of blood supply means that discs in the spine heal naturally at a very slow rate. Current research states that a spinal disc may heal in 300-500 days without treatment. By employing Decompression Therapy,  we hope to improve on that.

Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions, typically 2-3 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes of traction with similar time spent on therapy for adjacent soft tissues. The extent and severity of each individual’s symptoms will determine the amount of sessions that will be necessary. Most patients experience some relief in just 1-2 treatments!
