Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical traction based treatment for arm, leg, neck, and back pain associated with herniated and degenerative spinal disc disease. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine which changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes the pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking the pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This, in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal. Doctor skill combined with computerized traction, proper assessment, and correct positioning is the key. Spinal decompression has saved many people from spinal surgery. We use nonsurgical spinal decompression in an attempt to treat:
- Back or neck pain or sciatica, which is pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg
- Bulging or herniated disks or degenerative disk disease
- Worn spinal joints (called posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
