Spinal Decompression & Traction
Whether applied manually or mechanically, the benefits of traction or “decompression” are similar. It is an excellent therapy choice to reduce pressure on cervical (neck) or lumbar (lower back) discs. Traction effectively reduces joint and nerve pain, pressure, and inflammation, caused by bulging or herniated discs. This procedure is quite comfortable, and lasts several minutes. Our chiropractic physicians also specialize in teaching you how to decompress your own spine, through a series of therapeutic exercises.
