Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to relieve pain and promote an optimal healing environment for back and leg pain, as well as pinched nerves, and bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs. In nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy, on the motorized decompression table, the spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner. This process relieves intradiscal pressure (pressure within the disc itself), which is thought to have two potential benefits: this pulls the herniated or bulging disc material back into the disc, and promotes the passage of fluids and healing nutrients into the disc to foster a better healing environment.

The patient should not feel pain during or after the decompression therapy although they should feel stretch as well as relief in the spine.
