Spinal decompression is a non surgical procedure that alleviates pain caused by pinched nerves specially people suffering from pinched nerves as a result of herniated discs, degenerating discs, or sciatica and spinal stenosis. These patients have generally seen multiple doctors and have already undergone a variety of treatments and look to spinal decompression as a solution to the pain.
Spinal decompression works by reducing pressure inside the disc, restoring movement and function. Using a controlled machine, the injured discs are lightly stretched apart. The movement realigns disc bulges and herniated discs back to the center, relieving pain on pinched nerves. During the decompression, the pressure in the disc is removed and a suction effect is created pulling in oxygen, water and nutrients back into the center along with the discs helping to restore healthy nutrients to the affected area. Back decompression offers a non-surgical, non-invasive solution to severe back pain.
