Spinal decompression is a type of therapy that involves stretching the spine in a controlled manner to relieve pressure on the spinal discs, nerves, and other structures. The goal of spinal decompression is to alleviate pain and other symptoms caused by conditions such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and sciatica.
There are several methods of spinal decompression, including traction devices, inversion tables, and manual decompression techniques performed by a chiropractor or physical therapist. The type of spinal decompression used will depend on the specific condition being treated and the individual patient’s needs.
Spinal decompression is generally considered safe and non-invasive, but it may not be suitable for everyone. It’s important to talk to a healthcare professional to determine if spinal decompression is a viable treatment option for your particular condition.
