Who Would Benefit From Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Millions of people are faced each day with debilitating back or neck pain and could possibly benefit from spinal decompression therapy. Among those are:
What Happens During Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Much of the pain experienced in the conditions listed above is due to pressure on a nerve in the spinal canal. The process of spinal decompression gently moves the spine in precise ways that decompress, or relax, and temporarily take the pressure off the nerve. The slight movements create a vacuum, encouraging misplaced spinal structures to re-align. This spinal relaxation and decompression also allows the nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen to flow once again to the damaged structures and over time allow healing to occur. This process happens in tiny steps over the course of several decompression treatments, but the results are very good.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is non-surgical and can be performed while totally clothed. The treatment occurs with the patient lying comfortably on the decompression table as it moves.
