How does Spinal Decompression work?
Decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment. There are no needles or injections involved. It involves the patient lying comfortably on a table while the treatment is administered. During the treatment the specific area of care is targeted and gently distracted or decompressed. Many patients say they feel really relaxed during the treatment and some even fall asleep. If you have a degenerative disc problem, the protocols administered create a gentle pulling apart of the targeted vertebral segment. This allows the disc to reabsorb water and regain some height. Think of it like a dried out sponge refilling with water. There is actually a term for this called Imbibition. Since the disc does not have a blood supply it cannot absorb nutrients like other tissues in the body do. The disc has to have movement and distractive forces to create a vacuum to suck in the water and nutrients.
