Spinal Decompression Therapy
This form of therapy utilizes specialized spinal tables that stretch your spine to take the pressure off of your injured discs or pinched nerves and other structures by gently stretching the spine. Spinal traction promotes movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs to help you heal faster.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is an effective treatment for pain in all regions of the spine, slipped discs, joint issues, and problems with your cervical spine. Spinal decompression may be effective in preventing spinal surgery for some spine conditions.
Daily repetitive movement of your spine or poor posture often leads to degenerative joints around the spine. This affects the intervertebral disc resulting in back pain and discomfort. Back pain is usually defined as a general ache anywhere along the spine, which sometimes extends to other parts of your body.
- Muscle aches
- Shooting pain
- Stabbing sensations
- Pain that extends down the leg
- Pain that worsens after bending, lifting or standing
- Pain that improves after reclining
