Spinal decompression is a very common but highly misunderstood type of treatment, and the name can sometimes scare people away from proceeding with the treatment. The key to knowing what it is begins with understanding what it really involves.
This type of chiropractic care aims to treat an area or areas of diseased disc utilizing a vacuum approach. The vacuum works to decrease the size of the herniated disc and relieve pressure from the roots of the nerve. There is also an exchange of nutrients that takes place in or around the areas of inflammation, which works to decrease or completely rid the lower back of any pain that may exist. Simply put, if you’re experiencing pain in the areas of the lower back, leg, neck, or arm, spinal decompression could be the best solution for relief.

The findings of these studies have shown that many people have who have undergone the procedure have been able to resume a high quality of life without pain and perform many or all of the functions they did before the issue of spinal pain existed.

It can be done professionally and within a small amount of time and best of all, there is not a lot of preparation required for the procedure.
