Spinal Decompression - Oriole Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Center


Chronic back pain can originate from a range of ailments. Regardless of the cause, longterm pain can have a negative effect on your entire system. In many cases, intense, chronic back pain can limit a person’s ability to perform average, daily activities. The sympathetic physiotherapists at Oriole Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Centre understand the frustration chronic pain creates and offer many options for homeopathic spinal decompression therapy.

Spinal decompression therapy has been used for many years as an effective, non-invasive way to treat many forms of back pain. Our office specializes in non-surgical spinal decompressions that can be very effective in treating:

  • Below the knee leg symptoms
    • Nerve root compression issues
    • Lower lumbar pressure reduction
    • Spinal column disc detraction
    • And several other symptoms

A highly trained and licensed therapist will gently stretch your spine to change its positioning and reduce the pressure on the discs in the spinal column. We use specialized tables that allow specific adjustments to be made according to your body’s needs and your particular condition. By gently separating the bones in the lower part of the back safely and effectively, the therapist relieves pressure on the disc fibres, resulting in pain reduction. As the inflamed roots begin to heal over several treatments, this therapy can potentially provide a permanent remedy for many common chronic back pain stressors.

Though stretching the spine could seem medieval or painful for the uninitiated, the process is pain-free and often provides patients immediate relief from pain and tension. Along with the traction therapy we provide in-office, our physiotherapist will work with you to create an easy-to-follow home exercise regimen to decrease stress on the treatment area(s). If needed, we also recommend stabilization and strengthening treatments for patients whose condition would be eased by those efforts.

The majority of spinal decompression treatments are covered by extended health plans but we advice our patients to first check with their providers to ensure coverage prior to treatment. You can always choose a single treatment without selecting an entire treatment plan. Our clinic accepts Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance, extended health benefits, and WSIB.
