Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical traction based treatment used to treat conditions such as disc herniations and bulges in the cervical and lumbar spines as well as sciatic pain. Most instances of lower back and/or leg pain can be safely and effectively treated with spinal decompression. When a disc becomes compressed, due to injury, it can cause pain and inflammation over the area of compression. If the compressed disc or inflammation impinges on a nerve (also known as a pinched nerve) it can cause pain to be felt in the extremities. For example, if an individual had a disc bulge or herniation in their lumbar spine it could possibly lead to sciatic pain (known as sciatica). Spinal Decompression can help alleviate the compressive forces acting on a herniated or bulging disc, which in turn will reduce or eliminate the pain experienced by the individual. Non-surgical spinal decompression is achieved through the use of a computerized traction device that controls the force and angle of distraction thereby relieving the compressive force to the discs, which reduces intradiscal pressure.
