What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
decompression therapy is FDA cleared and has a high success rate for pain
associated with herniated or bulging discs...even after failed surgery. It
is a non-surgical, traction based therapy for the relief of back and leg
pain or neck and arm pain. During this procedure, by cycling through distraction
and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated
and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.
How does this negative pressure affect the injured disc?
decompression therapy, a negative pressure is created within the disc.
Because of that negative pressure, disc material that has protruded
or herniated can be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, and
permit healing to occur.
