Spinal decompression therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of traction that involves stretching the spine to alleviate pressure on the discs and nerves.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment for relieving pain and discomfort caused by spinal disc problems. It involves stretching the spine using a traction table or similar device to relieve pressure on the spinal discs, which can help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote healing.
Spinal decompression creates negative pressure within the spinal discs, which helps draw in nutrients and oxygen and promotes healing. It also helps relieve pressure on nerves and other structures within the spine, reducing pain and discomfort.
During a spinal decompression session, you will lie on a table equipped with a harness or other device to secure you in place. The table will then be slowly tilted to stretch your spine, and your healthcare provider will carefully control the amount of pressure applied.
