Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for certain types of chronic back pain. Spinal decompression is a relatively new medical treatment. Spinal decompression works by slowly and gently stretching the spine, taking pressure off compressed discs and vertebrae. When this technique is applied, negative pressure is created within the disc allowing for the disc material that has moved away from the central part of the disc, and pinching a nerve, to be drawn back inside the disc, relieving the pressure on the nerve. This can result in reduced neck or back pain, reduced arm or leg pain, and promotes healing of the disc.
