Decompression

What Is It?

Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical form of treatment designed to treat disc lesions and pain resulting from degeneration of the spine. When treating disc lesions, it aims to create a negative intra-discal pressure to promote retraction of the disc material. The movement given to the spine/disc through this therapy can also help nourish and heal the disc. The best way for a disc to get the nutrition is needs is through movement. With pain resulting from degeneration, the action of decompressing the spine can help take pressure off compressed joints/nerves and allow movement.

Whom Does It Help?

Common symptoms that could indicate the need for decompression therapy include, but are not limited to: radiating pain in your leg/arm, the need to hold your arm above your head to stay out of pain, or chronic low back or neck pain.
