How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment for low back pain due to disc related pathologies (herniated, bulging discs) as well as Facet Syndrome, failed back surgery and Degenerative disc disease (DDD). It is safe, comfortable, and effective.
Spinal Decompression Therapy works by restoring proper function to an injured disc. During the “pull” ,injured discs are gently stretched apart, producing a suction force inside the disc. This draws disc buldges and herniations back into the center of the disc along with oxygen, water, nutrients, and other healing substances. The end result is a strong, healthy, properly functioning disc.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a lot like disc rehabilitation. Not only does decompression minimize disc bulges and herniations, but it also restores the proper nutrient supply to the disc. This allows the disc to regain its proper motion, and essentially proper nutrient supply. If the decompression is successful, the disc remains healthy even after the treatment is finished.
