Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, therapy to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries.
Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics, repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress your discs or to slip out of alignment which then applies pressure to your discs.
Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve; and brittleness of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself which is needed to heal.

If you have low back pain, you understand how debilitating the condition may be. The symptoms that you feel coming from your low back can prevent you from sitting, walking, working, and enjoying recreational activities.
There are many different treatments and modalities available for your low back pain. One such treatment that has become quite popular is spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression is a form of mechanical spinal traction. Spinal traction refers to the separation of the bones, joints, and discs of the back. It is theorized that separating the bones, joints, and discs in the spine relieves pressure on the nerves in the back and helps decrease pain, and thus, improve function.
