Spinal Decompression Therapy, as the name implies, is a specialized type of treatment designed to decompress structures of the spinal column. Decompression refers to taking pressure off of or releasing compression of the nerve endings, the spinal cord, stenosed areas and other related spinal soft tissue structures. Compression of nerve roots and the spinal cord occur when there is abnormal functioning of the intervertebral disc (i.e. disc herniations, buldging), poor muscle control and inflammation or swellling of the soft tissue structures.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is designed to reverse the effects of this "compression" on these spinal related soft tissue structures to improve function and eliminate pain and other symptoms such as numbness, tingling and muscle weakness.
Please see the page titled Virtual Decompression for a short movie detailing this procedure.
