If you have been to a chiropractor, you may have noticed that they offer Spinal Decompression Therapy, and you may be wondering what this is and how it helps. Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical option for treatment that is specifically designed for those who are suffering from mild to moderate back pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy is used to realign the spine and help to relieve pressure on pinched nerves that are causing chronic pain. The traction from spinal decompression therapy will increase the circulation to the damaged disc which allows it to begin the natural healing process. This may also reduce compression of nearby spinal nerve roots. This type of therapy is often prescribed by a Chiropractor when a patient is suffering from chronic back pain from damaged discs.
