  • What Is Spinal Decompression?

    25th August 2016 | Elaine Lewis
  • Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is proven to treat back pain, and sciatica caused by bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs or facet syndrome. Even post-surgical patients and those suffering from certain types of stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal) have reported significant pain relief from NSSD treatments.

    Spinal Decompression slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that not only takes pressure off of pinched nerves, but helps to re-position bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place.

    NSSD utilizes a sophisticated method of cycling the patient through a series of slow pulls, holds, and releases. The super-smooth transitions between each phase of therapy can make for an experience so relaxing that many often fall asleep.

    Over a series of treatment sessions, patients experience powerful pain reduction and healing. Some notice an improvement in their symptoms after the first few treatments! Even post surgical patients and those suffering from certain types of stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal causing nerve compression) have reported significant pain relief.

    Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Experienced

    Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, not to be confused with linear traction, gently lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.

    Experts surmise that Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression stimulates the body’s repair mechanism, providing the building blocks needed to mend injured and degenerated discs. NSSD enables the body to get to work and heal itself! Now there truly is hope for lasting relief without drugs, injections, or surgery.
