Spinal Decompression Therapy involves spinal stretching, using a traction table or comparable mobile device, with the goal of releasing leg and back pain. Contact our College Park Chiropractors for more information about Spinal Decompression or to schedule a free consultation.
Spinal decompression therapy is a type of motorized traction that can help reduce back pain. This treatment works by lightly stretching the spine, which changes the position and pressure on the spine. This change helps the spinal discs, which are gel-like buffers located between the bones in your spine, by producing negative pressure in the disc.
As a result, bulging or herniated discs may recede, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This, in turn, encourages the healing process by improving the flow of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to the discs.
