Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

San Diego Chiropractic Doctors offer Spinal Decompression Therapy as a safe, effective treatment for back and neck pain caused by bulging or herniated discs, Sciatica, and degenerative spinal conditions and syndromes. Spinal Decompression Therapy restores normal function to an injured disc by stretching the spine with controlled, mechanical traction that relieves pressure on the discs, joints, and muscular tissue. The traction gently pulls the injured discs apart and produces a vacuum force that minimizes disc bulges and herniations, stimulates healing, and restores the nutrient supply to the injured discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy is a gentle, non-surgical treatment to reduce or eliminate back and neck pain. Success rates of treatment are extremely high and similar to the results of surgical intervention. Most patients experience pain reduction and functional improvements after only a few sessions.
