What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is traction that uses gentle, rhythmic pulling to stretch the spine. This stretching relieves pressure on the discs and nerves in the spine, which can help to alleviate pain. Spinal decompression can be done with a machine or by hand.
Is Spinal Decompression Safe?
Yes! Spinal decompression is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment option that is safe and effective for treating chronic back pain. In fact, many people report feeling relief after just a few sessions of spinal decompression.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
During a spinal decompression session, you will lie on a table while a harness is attached to your hips. The table will then move slowly, gently stretching your spine. Most sessions last between 20 and 30 minutes. You may need to undergo several spinal decompression sessions before you start feeling relief from your pain.
