Spinal decompression is an alternative type of therapy designed for alleviating pain in the intervertebral disc and promoting healing by gently stretching the spine, thereby taking pressure off the spinal discs. If you are suffering from lasting back pain or other related symptoms, it can be very disruptive to your daily life. Some people find relief through spinal decompression therapy. SDT is a nonsurgical approach to relieving the pain caused by pressure on the spinal column. In nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy, the spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner. This process creates a negative intradiscal pressure, which pulls the herniated or bulging disc material back into the disc and also promotes the passage of healing nutrients into the disc, fostering a better environment for healing.
