Decompression is a treatment used to relieve pressure placed on the discs and vertebrae in the spine. A normal, healthy spine is made up of properly aligned vertebrae that are separated by discs that allow the body to bend and move without pain or symptoms. However, when a personal injury causes pressure to build up in the spine, the discs can become compressed, which can ultimately lead to back pain, neck pain, tingling, numbness and difficulty performing daily functions.
There are many types of people who are good candidates for spinal decompression. They may include:
Spinal decompression is an effective therapy for patients suffering from neck and back pain due to misalignment and herniated discs. Compressed discs lead to severe pain, numbness and tingling in the injured area. Decompression may relieve the pressure placed on your spinal discs.
