What is Spinal Decompression?

Damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal as the discs are constantly under pressure. Decompression or the reduction of pressure inside the discs facilitates the transfer of fluids, nutrients and oxygen back inside the disc which promotes the retraction of bulging or herniated discs.

The goal of reducing intradiscal pressure is to enhance the osmotic diffusion of fluids and nutrients across the endplates into the disc, furthering the body’s natural healing abilities. Additionally, reduction of intradiscal pressures may help draw the nucleus pulposus of a herniated disc back into the center, thereby relieving pressure on a compressed nerve root—alleviating the problem and the pain.
