Spinal decompression is a non-surgical traction therapy. Decompression can be achieved on the back up to the neck. For lower back decompression treatments, a patient begins by lying on a decompression table with padded straps around the waist and chest to keep the patient comfortable in place. With neck treatments, patients will have soft rubber pads placed behind the neck.
Spinal decompression is a comfortable therapy that creates:
Negative intradiscal pressure to reposition or retract herniated and/or bulging discs.
Lower pressure in the disc to stimulate the flow of nutrients and other substances into the disc to help promote healing.
