Lumbar Spinal Decompression is a restorative technique specifically designed to relieve pressure within the spine. When one or more vertebrae or discs are misaligned, out of balance or damaged, nerve impingement can occur, resulting in discomfort and pain that can be experienced throughout the body, not only in the back. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is an extremely effective treatment protocol that safely and painlessly restores the spine’s natural alignment and eliminates excessive pressure on the nerves, which is the root cause of health issues and pain.
Lumbar Spinal Decompression involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain. This procedure is called Non-surgical Spinal Decompression. This chiropractic technique is especially beneficial in the treatment of bulging disc of the lumbar spine. During decompression, the patient is fitted with a specially designed harness system that works with the decompression device to reduce pressure on a damaged disc by gently distracting adjacent vertebrae. By adjusting the angle of distraction, placement of the harness and weight setting specific discs can be targeted.
