Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain.

This type of therapy is considered a non-surgical approach to treating lower back and neck pain. 

Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits including:

 

  • Create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material.

  • Create a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc.
