What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical option that involves slowly stretching the spine. Decompressing the spine relieves the pressure on a bulging or herniated disc. Doing so takes the pressure off the disc, which takes the pressure off the nerves, and allows for proper healing and pain relief.
Our spines degenerate over time, this is a normal process of aging. However, there can be segments that degenerate faster than others as a result of trauma or repetitive stress over time. This causes damage to the disc…herniation or bulging. Once a disc is damaged it can be very difficult to heal as our discs are not highly vascular (good blood supply). Spinal Decompression solves that problem by stretching the disc and allowing nutrient-rich blood to be absorbed into the disc.
