LUMBAR SPINE DECOMPRESSION: By Saunders Orthopedics™. Are you suffering from low back pain from a bulging or herniated disc?  Lumbar traction is often referred as non-surgical spinal decompression. It creates a negative intradiscal pressure in the spine, allowing the bulging or herniated tissue to move back in place, and heal. The device consists of two independently moving parts, and uses harnesses to firmly hold the pelvis and thorax in place. Traction is applied pneumatically. You will require several sessions, and may not feel the relief immediately after your first try. A typical protocol requires 12 sessions, but differ with each patient. Lumbar traction requires a clear diagnosis of your condition and has contraindications. 

  • Bulging disc

  • Herniated disc

  • Acute or chronic low back pain

  • Compressed spinal nerve

THE RECOVERY ROOM

YOUR PRIVATE OASIS & SELF CARE STOP

You may have heard the saying "Your performance is only as good as your recovery"...  Recovery is a hot topic amongst elite athletes and sport scientists who study, and revere it as much (if not more) than sound training. However, you don't need to be an athlete to benefit from recovery aids. It is available to all that value wellness and health. 

Whether you are an athlete pushing your limits, reeling back from an injury, or simply wanting to slow down and pamper yourself, you will find something you love in the Recovery Room. 

The room is equipped with devices aimed at enhancing your well being, and is limited to a single user per session, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in relaxation. 

Choose any equipment. We will demonstrate how to safely use each device, and how to maximize your results.
