Spinal Decompression Explained

Posted: Updated:

Decompression is believed to relieve pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a result of drawing areas of bulging and herniated disc material back into place.

Non-surgical decompression accomplishes this by creating negative pressure within the disc referred to as a negative intra-discal pressure. Designed essentially to create a vacuum, it draws the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieves pressure.

In most cases, the healing process requires only a few weeks of treatment on an outpatient basis. SpineAid doctors have committed to undergo ongoing training in the delivery of decompression and dedicate a large portion of their practice to the relief of severe and chronic low back pain.
