What is Decompression Therapy and how does it work?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a safe, non-surgical, drug free treatment for patients that suffer from Chronic Neck or Low Back Pain that is caused by disc problems and other spinal related conditions. Decompression is a kind of mechanical traction that gently stretches the spine through repetitive movements by the Spinal Decompression Table. As the table gently pulls and releases, it allows space to be created between the vertebrae; this relieves pressure and provides a nice stretch for your spine, also allowing disc bulges or herniations and the nutrients to be pulled back into the disc. Decompression therapy rehydrates the discs and surrounding areas, assisting in the body's natural healing process. Patients typically notice significant improvement within 25-30 treatments.
