What Can You Expect?

When you arrive at our office for your first spinal decompression in St. James, our staff will help you get set up on our state-of-the-art traction table, on which you will lie for the duration of your session while the motor moves back and forth to provide stretching. Individual sessions can last up to 45 minutes, and you may require anywhere between 5 and 50 sessions in order to feel the full effect. However, we want to be absolutely clear in saying that the nature of your particular treatment plan–whether you fall on the low or high end of the spectrum–will be determined entirely by your conversations with Dr. Semente. Please be sure to get an MRI scan prior to your appointment, and come prepared with the results.
