What is Spinal Decompression?

by Yenny (SU)
If you have been experiencing severe back pain and nothing seems to work, your doctor may suggest spinal decompression as a way of relieving, or greatly reducing your back and neck pain. In a nutshell, spinal decompression is exactly what it sounds like. It is a way to effectively reduce the compression or pressure on your spine by using traction. This allows for increased blood flow to speed healing of damaged discs, while also removing the pressure caused by damaged spinal discs.
