What Is Non-Surgical Decompression?
Non-surgical decompression is a type of motorized traction that has been shown to relieve back pain. This therapy works by gently stretching the spine, which relieves stress on the back muscles and spinal discs. Because this is a non-surgical procedure, there is no need to go to a hospital or have any injections of incisions performed on your body. Non-surgical spinal decompression is also ideal for those who do not want to deal with the period of downtime following a surgical procedure.
The Effectiveness of Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression has been used for years in medical and chiropractic offices throughout the country. This procedure has been performed millions of times with an extremely high success rate. Because this procedure is non-invasive, there are almost no side effects or adverse reactions.
