Spinal decompression therapy works by gently distracting the spinal vertebrae apart allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to help heal the disc while flushing out inflammation form the surrounding tissues to allow the painful stimulus to be alleviated. The decompression creates a suctioning affect that allows the disc to come off the nerves that are causing the pain. The treatment is very comfortable and most patients fall asleep during the treatment.
