Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical, traction based treatment for degenerative, bulging, or herniated discs in the neck and low back. The spinal decompression table is a computer controlled device that systematically cycles discs through distraction and relaxation phases, and by proper positioning, can isolate a disc. This isolation causes a vacuum effect which helps to correct herniated disc material and also increases blood-flow stimulating a healing effect within the body.
Spinal decompression therapy has been clinically shown to reduce pain associated by ruptured discs at an 86% success rate in the Sealy-Borgmeyer study and a 90% reduction in disc herniations according to Eyerman study using MRI to measure results. Anyone suffering from back, neck, arm, or leg pain caused by degenerated, bulging, or herniated discs may be helped by spinal decompression.
