badspineWhat Does Spinal Decompression Do?

Damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal as the discs are constantly under pressure. Decompression, or the reduction of pressure inside the discs, facilitates the transfer of fluids, nutrients and oxygen back inside the disc resulting in the retraction of bulging or herniated discs.
 
During normal activities, the pressure inside the lumbar discs typically ranges between 100 mm/HG to 300 mm/HG.
