Spinal decompression works by gently stretching your spine and reducing the pressure on your disks, restoring your spine's natural function and flexibility.
The treatment process is easy and relaxing. First, the doctor will determine the specific area of the spine to target, and configure the decompression machine. During a decompression treatment, you will lie comfortably on a padded table. A belt fits around your waist and your lower chest.
Then, the computer-controlled decompression system slowly and precisely stretches your spine, then releases. Over the course of a treatment, your spine will be carefully stretched and relaxed many times, “decompressing” the affected disks of the spine. This increases circulation, hydration, and nutrition to the disk.
