Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical alternative method to treating low back pain, neck pain and radiating arm or leg pain. Spinal decompression therapy can be a successful form of treatment for herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, failed spinal surgery and sciatica. Using a computerized traction table, spinal decompression therapy may create a negative pressure in the spine causing a “vacuum-like effect”, possibly promoting a return of fluid and nutrients into the discs. Disc bulges and herniations may begin to heal and retract back into the spine relieving pressure off spinal nerves. Some recent research shows over 80% of patients who underwent spinal decompression therapy noticed immediate improvement in symptoms and 90 days after conclusion of treatment. You can ask the doctors at AZ Spine Disc and Sport if this decompression therapy may be beneficial for your particular condition.
