Spinal decompression is a good resource if you are looking to treat back problems like herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, and degenerative disc disease. Spinal stenosis narrows the channels of the spinal column, and pressure begins accumulating, causing the vertebrae to compress down on the discs in between. Spinal decompression is used to reverse the effects and take stress off of the spine by "un-pinching" nerves..
Non-Surgial Spinal Decompression, also referred to as the Cox Distraction technique, works by methodically increasing the spacing between vertebrae. The increased spacing creates a pressurized vacuum within a bugled disc, moving it off the nerve, and allowing blood and important nutrients to flow into the vertebral discs. This allows the nerves to do their job and transmit mental impulses properly. The location of a disc that has degenerated or pinched decreases the nerve impulse, weakening signal and thus causing pain, decreased sensation, muscle weakness, or decreased reflexes.
