Traction / Decompression Therapy

Decompression therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive, effective treatment for chronic and acute low-back pain sufferers.

Decompression therapy may be helpful with some common problems that are related to the vertebral disc including:

  • Sciatica
  • Disc Herniation and Bulges
  • Degenerative Discs
  • Failed Low Back Surgery
  • Posterior Facet Syndrome
  • Spinal Stenosis/Arthritis

How Decompression Works

Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain is a result of the application of negative pressure to reverse high intra-disc pressure.

The pain is relieved by moving areas of herniated disc back into place by the creation of negative pressure to draw disc material back into the disc space and relieve pressure. Decompression allows for strengthening of the outer ligament bands that hold the disc material in place and which become weak and stretched during the bulging effect.
