How can decompression therapy help me?
Decompression therapy is useful to help relieve pain and other symptoms caused by compression of the nerves in the spine. Reduction of pain and discomfort can occur for those diagnosed with nerve compression, when the spine is gently stretched and lengthened. This process relieves the pressure on the affected nerve root and can result in reduced pain and discomfort.
Why is decompression therapy important?
There are many factors that can lead to nerve compression, with the most common being age and increased body weight. These factors result in prolonged pressure being placed on the spine and can lead to areas of the spine wearing unevenly. As this occurs, it can result in conditions like bulging discs, herniated discs or bone spurs. As these conditions develop it creates abnormal movement and positioning of the vertebra in the spine, which can put pressure on the nerve root and cause severe chronic pain.
