Decompression therapy is a nonsurgical means of relieving pain to the lower back and neck and is often referred to as spinal decompression therapy. Decompression therapy is a spinal disc rehabilitation program that slowly and gently stretches the area of the spine while decompressing the discs. This type of treatment is considered to be very safe and effective.
Using this technique in stretching the spine allows a vacuum effect to happen inside the discs. This type of pressure can reposition the retraction of the bulging or herniated disc to the inside of the disc, taking pressure off the nerve root, relieving the patient of pain? Very small steps are taken during each therapy session. The therapy sessions usually take place over a period of 4 to 6 weeks and often end with dramatic positive results.
