Spinal Decompression

Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal Decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

Doctors have used Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression in an attempt to treat:

  • Back or Neck Pain or Sciatica, which is pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg
  • Bulging or Herniated Disks or Degenerative Disk Disease
  • Worn Spinal Joints (called posterior facet syndrome)
  • Injured or Diseased Spinal Nerve Roots
