NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION
Non-invasive treatment for the management of patients with chronic neck, back, arm and leg pain from pinched nerves, or a bulging, degenerating or herniated disc. Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine using traction or a motorized device to relieve pressure on the disc and allow retraction or repositioning.
This decompression also allows nutrients into the disc to promote healing.
