Spinal Decompression therapy combines gentle traction of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs and the many structures that could be impinged. It is a safe, outpatient, non-invasive therapy that utilizes a table and gentle strapping to comfortably decompress the spine. The traction forces create a force called imbibition, a suction force, that aids the spinal discs in obtaining nutrients and hydration they desperately need during recovery.
There has been EXTENSIVE RESEARCH studying the validity and prescription of Spinal Decompression Therapy. Results to note include decreased recovery time, and decreased likelihood of surgical intervention.

- Herniated disc
