Spinal Decompression Therapy
by NuView Health Medical

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical method for relieving pressure that occurs in the spinal column. The pressure is created when discs cushioning the individual vertebrae weaken. Over time these once strong and flexible cushions “bulge” or “herniate” out of a healthy position. The pressure reduces blood flow and creates pain in the nerves and connective tissue. Thus, spinal decompression stretches the vertebra gently apart to reduce pressure and allow the discs to re-align.

How Each Treatment Works

The patient is placed into a harness on a traction table, and then, gentle force is used through phases of distraction and relaxation to isolate affected discs. Patients rarely feel pain during the traction process. In fact, many report immediate relief. A number of sessions may be necessary, depending on the severity of the condition.
