  • Numbness in Arms / Legs
  • Loss of Sensation
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Tingling in Extremities
  • Sciatica

How does Spinal Decompression work?

Spinal Decompression is a medical traction-based device that produces a distractive force to the spine, resultant in a negative intradiscal pressure within the disc.  This creates a vacuum phenomenon and retraction of the disc.

For instance, if you squeeze a sponge in water, it will expand.  Same concept, the distraction and relaxation motion will draw nutrient-rich fluids back into the disc.
