Spinal decompression is a gentle work stretching the spine which changes the force and position of the spine. This therapy takes stress off the spinal disks by creating negative pressure. Bulging or herniated disks may retract as a result of the treatment, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This treatment helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
Decompression therapy is applied with the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs without surgery.
