DOC Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Therapy Using a DOC Table in Mississauga

At European Massage and Physiotherapy in Mississauga, we are equipped with a DOC table, an advanced, computer-assisted solution to your spinal problems. We are one of the few clinics in the area with access to this cutting-edge piece of equipment, which provides a surgery-free alternative to treating a wide range of spinal conditions, including:

  • Chronic back pain (lasting more than a week)
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots (radiculopathy)

How Does the DOC Table Work?

The DOC table at European Massage and Physiotherapy uses spinal decompression therapy to “stretch” your spine and surrounding muscle. This stretching action creates negative pressure within your spinal discs, allowing herniated or protruded disc material to be pulled back into the disc. This negative pressure also promotes the movement of nutrient rich fluids in the discs, promoting healing. When you come see us for DOC therapy, one of our trained physiotherapists will use the table to perform a customized treatment plan suited to your needs. The table will execute the treatment with the ideal force necessary for your height, body weight, and treatment protocol.

What Are the Advantages?

Using the DOC table to treat your spinal ailment is relatively painless and one session only takes about 20-30 minutes. Use of the DOC table also provides a cheaper alternative to surgery, which requires long recovery time, keeping you in bed for weeks, even months.

The DOC table provides the perfect synergy of advanced technology and the extensive knowledge of a certified physiotherapist.
