Spinal Decompression Therapy at
Southcenter Chiropractic Massage and Rehab

therapy chair with clientHave you heard about the benefits of spinal decompression? Protec is the only therapeutic device available that offers floating manipulative therapy. It’s appropriate for acute and chronic low back or neck pain. If you’re suffering from a disc-related issue, you may find your nonsurgical solution at Southcenter Chiropractic Massage and Rehab through Protec.

The Protec Difference

This gravity-based, three-dimensional therapy uses your body weight to decompress the spine and stretch in a therapeutic manner. All you have to do is remain seated and let the technology do the work for you. It can even be used by people who are less mobile, making it a simple and efficient tool for anyone.

You won’t have to worry about discomfort. Pressure is taken off the discs by lifting and suspending your upper body, applying movement therapy to specific points of the body.


Disc problems can cause pain in your neck or your back. Whether you’ve gotten a new injury or have been struggling for years, you can benefit from Protec therapy. If you’ve been told that you might need surgery, this is a good way to prepare for your procedure or avoid having to resort to it.

The symptoms you might experience include

  • Back pain
  • Disc bulge
  • Disc herniation

  • Neck pain
  • Radiating leg or arm pain
  • Spinal stenosis

I'm in pain. Can I still use Protec therapy?


Yes. Patients who are in excruciating pain find that when they do this therapy, they feel immediate relief. We can also complete therapeutic exercises that you may not ordinarily be able to do while you’re doing Protec therapy.
Is Protect therapy covered by insurance?

Yes, and we are in-network providers with nearly all insurances. It can also be covered by your personal injury protection or workers’ compensation.
What is the new patient process to get Protec therapy?

It’s the same as for a regular new patient, involving a consultation and examination. We’ll look at any X-rays or MRIs you have, or can take X-rays on-site if needed.
Do I have to be a chiropractic patient?

Some can benefit from chiropractic and Protec therapy, while others get the greatest benefit from Protec as a standalone option. We’ll determine what’s right for you from your examination.
How long does a Protec session take?

About 15-20 minutes in total. If you’re also getting a chiropractic adjustment, that will add about 10 minutes to your time with us.
