Spinal Decompression therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapy technique that can help in the treatment of neck pain and low back pain as a result of herniated discs, bulging discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and more. It utilizes a specialized motorized table with the goal of resolving pain and promoting an optimal environment for healing disc issues and degenerative issues.
Spinal decompression devices use the same basic principle of spinal traction that has been offered by chiropractors, osteopaths, and other appropriately trained health professionals for many years.
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.
