What is Non-surgical Spinal Decompression?
Non-surgical decompression is a type of motorized traction that helps relieving certain types of pain and pressure by gently stretching the spine.
Gently stretching the spine changes the force and position of the spine. These changes takes the pressure off the spinal discs, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result of these changes bulging or herniated discs may retract, taking the pressure off the nerves and other structures in your spine. When the pressure if off the nerves and other structures this helps the body promote movement of water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids into the disc so they can heal.
