Spinal Decompression/Traction Treatment:

Are you suffering from lower back pain? You may be a good candidate for spinal decompression treatment. Spinal decompression is a type of treatment that aims to relieve pressure from the spine by gradually stretching it out. This helps to reduce herniated or bulging discs, as well as chronic pain caused by compression of the nerve roots.

What Is Spinal Decompression Treatment/Traction?

Spinal decompression/traction treatment is a non-surgical procedure designed to help alleviate neck and lower back pain caused by herniated or bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and other conditions. The therapy involves stretching out the spine in order to reduce pressure on the vertebrae and discs. This can provide relief from chronic neck and back pain and allow damaged tissue to mend properly.

During treatment, a patient lies on their stomach/back on a special table that has two adjustable sections — one for the feet and one for the shoulders. The table then gently stretches out the spine. Neck decompression treatment utilizes a traction unit that stretches the cervical spine.
