Non-Surgical Lumbar Traction/Spinal Decompression Therapy

What is Lumbar Traction/Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy involves stretching the spine using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and radiating leg symptoms.  

Theory Behind Lumbar Traction for Back Pain

The traction creates negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of a herniated or bulging disc. It also creates lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc.
