Spinal Decompression is a proven non-invasive, non-surgical and drug free treatment. It is known to treat severe neck and low back pain that involves herniated or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, degenerative discs and also after surgery failed back syndrome.

Spinal decompression creates negative pressures within the disc by gently extending and decompressing the spine. The negative pressure produce an intradiscal vacuum that removes pressures pinched nerves and reposition bulging discs putting it back into its place. This is known to draw nutrients, owygen and fluids into the disc making an environment favorable to healing.

Low back pain can be caused by injuries and aging. Result from herniation and degeneration of the intervertebral discs are the main problems that cause back pain.
