Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a specialized technique and table with a series of rehabilitation exercises to help with patients that have had either traumatic or reoccurring neck, back or disc problems. Specifically disc degeneration, disc dehydration, acute trauma to a disc or chronic pain.

The best spinal decompression specialists will have you go through a variety of warm up exercises to make sure the soft tissue, ligaments, tendons etc are supple before you are placed onto the table. The table should have a vibrating surface to continue to fatigue the muscles otherwise your muscles could obtain micro-tears while the traction is applied at an appropriate rate.

Spinal decompression is sometimes a last resort before surgery although it can be used for cases that are much more simple. Some patients that suffer from that nagging low back or neck pain for years only need a light series or rehab and traction to eliminate that pain.
