Spinal Decompression Toronto - Antalgic Trak

Welcome Back Spinal Care Centre is excited to bring the first multi-directional spinal decompression therapy to Toronto.  This is a non-surgical, drug-free treatment for low back and neck pain and associated neurological symptoms.  Many people across North America have found relief from the pain associated with degenerative joint disease, herniated or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, “pinched” nerves, and other spinal afflictions.  If neck or low back symptoms have not resolved with other types of treatment, spinal decompression therapy should be considered.

We utilize the Antalgic-Trak Decompression Chair, a revolutionary new technology, to apply safe and comfortable decompression to your spine.

How does Spinal Decompression Therapy Differ from Standard Traction?

When spinal joints are irritated, the postural muscles around the spine react by going into spasm to guard against further injury.  Typically, when traction is applied to those joints, the body’s normal reaction is to pull away in the opposite direction.

Welcome Back’s spinal decompression unit contains a sensitive computer feedback mechanism to overcome this phenomenon.  With precise, computer-controlled tension, the appropriate disc levels are gently and painlessly stretched, creating a negative pressure within the disc.  This facilitates an important physiological process known as imbibition: the transfer of fluids, nutrients and oxygen back into the disc, increasing vital circulation.

Over time, this helps to: increase the disc height; promote the retraction of bulging/herniated discs; and relieve pressure on the nerves causing the pain.  A typical course of management consists of approximately 20-30 spinal decompression sessions.
