Spinal Decompression Therapy
Treat Your Chronic Spinal Pain with the Super Traction Decompression System in Arizona
Until the scientific and medical communities worked together to create the Super Traction Decompression (TDS) system, the only option for opening up space within the spine was invasive surgery. Thanks to the TDS system, we at LaserTech can help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on your spine by opening up space for the nerves to comfortably exit and function, so we can help minimize chronic pain associated with buckled ligaments, bulging or herniated discs or other spine-related condition.
With the advent of the FDA-cleared Super Traction Decompression system used here at LaserTech, treatment of spinal stenosis, herniated discs, sciatica, disc degeneration and/or failed back surgery has changed drastically, and for the better. Before, the only treatment options were to use highly addictive pain pills, which only mask the painful symptoms, or undergo potentially dangerous spinal surgery, but thanks to this spinal decompression treatment, you may be able to avoid all of these invasive options and still find relief through non-invasive means.
We are steadfast in our commitment to helping our Arizona patients find the pain relief they’ve been seeking for years. Check out our blog for a more in-depth look at Spinal Decompression Therapy.

How Does the Decompression System (TDS) Work to Relieve or Eliminate Back Pain?
The Super Traction Decompression system works to alleviate pressure and pain associated with a wide array of back and spinal conditions by applying an incredibly precise distraction force that effectively relieves nerve compression, which allows the material within your discs to pull away from the nerve and open up space for the nerves to pass through with ease.
Gone are the days when your only options were pain medications, refraining from physical activities, physical therapy or spinal surgery, as you now have a safe, viable and extremely effective, non-invasive alternative thanks to LaserTech’s TDS system. With this innovative technology, our pain relief team can safely and effectively reduce your neck pain associated with herniated or deteriorated discs, as well as lower back pain and sciatica, all without injections, pain medications or surgery.
Plus, our TDS treatment doesn’t only provide significant pain relief for the vast majority of patients, it also has helped many of them to return to healthier, more active and fulfilling lifestyles.
Does the Spinal Decompression Therapy Hurt? What Exactly Does it Feel Like?
LaserTech’s TDS treatment is both safe and comfortable. In fact, many patients are so relaxed, they’re able to sleep throughout the duration of the treatment, and do not experience any negative side effects. There have been some instances of mild muscle spasms that last for a very short period of time after the procedure, but these occurrences are few and far between.
