Spinal decompression is a service that is offered to help alleviate pressure and pain within the spine. During the decompression, the patient lies on a table and is fastened in at two different spots along their body, usually at the pelvis and torso. The device is operated by a doctor and works by gently and subtly stretching the spine. This action will change the force and position of the spine.

The change, in turn, takes pressure off the gel-like cushions between your bones in the spine by creating a negative pressure within the disc. This service helps bulging or herniated disks retract, taking pressure off of the nerves in the spine. Spinal decompression promotes the healing of the disks within the spine by allowing water, oxygen, and other components to move within the spine and to the affected areas. Spinal decompression usually includes multiple treatments within a short span of a few weeks. The treatment has incremental levels based on tolerance level and pressure on the nerves and pre-existing  conditions. One of the primary benefits of spinal decompression is pain relief. The constant rubbing of the bones within the spine can be painful. This additional service can be considered an alternative to surgery as a way to reduce pain and promote spinal healing.
