Decompression Therapy, a traction based treatment regimen, is one of the best long-term treatment options for treating low back and neck problems. Sometimes, the pain in your back or neck can be due to a bulging or herniated condition of one or more of the discs that act as a sort of shock absorber or cushion in between the bones of the spinal column. When your disc(s) bulge or become herniated, or simply wear out, the disc(s) can compress or irritate a nerve, the result of which can be VERY painful. Over time, our bodies suffer from the wear and tear of daily living. We call this Cumulative Traumatic Disorder. Whether it's muscle or soft tissue related (discs), or maybe joints and bones in the neck and back, decompressive therapy helps to create a negative pressure in your discs (decompression) to help to reverse this process. Decompression has been scientifically shown to be highly effective in almost 90% of cases.
