What Is a Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression heals without drugs or surgery by using a gentle, relaxing, and very effective treatment. The machine works by slowly expanding the space between the vertebrae in the back and neck. This creates a negative pressure that allows a disc to fall back into its proper place. At the same time, decompressing the spine also increases blood flow to the affected discs, which speeds healing, and encourages the regeneration of new cartilage, so the disc stays in its correct place without the need for surgical intervention to keep it there.

Why Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompressions can be very useful for treating low back pain and sciatica. Here are several reasons to consider this treatment:

  • Promotes mobility of the lower back, allowing for improved athletic performance
  • Drug-free, natural treatment that uses holistic methods, which means no expensive medications or long recovery time from surgery
  • This chiropractic technique can treat a variety of conditions and injuries, ranging from spinal pain to hip injuries, neck pain, and sciatica pain
  • A return to an active lifestyle after months or years of chronic pain
