Disc decompression therapy is an effective treatment for:
Herniated discs in the neck or low back
Numbness, pain, or tingling down the arm
Disc decompression therapy works by using a controlled, mechanical traction to gently pull and then slowly release the spine. This pull decreases the pressure on discs and allows the discs to heal. Decompression therapy can be used on either the low back or neck.
Spinal disc decompression is a form of disc rehabilitation. Not only does disc decompression minimize disc herniations and bulges, it also restores nutrient, oxygen, and water supply to the disc. This allows the disc to: regain its proper motion; increase its ability to withstand sheer stresses; and act as better “shock-absorber.” If decompression is successful, the disc remains healthy after treatment is finished.
