Beyond just supporting our upright posture, the spine is a productive shield for the nerves that travel from the brain to the rest of the body. The numerous discs making up the spine are the outlet points for these nerves as they exit the spine. When a nerve gets pinched because your spine is compressed due to injury or deterioration, or gets out of alignment, you know it!
Decompression helps to relieve to relieve pressure on the nerves by providing a mild tension to slightly and gently separate the discs. This allows fluids to flow back into the joints, which helps relieve inflammation and reduce pain. A computerized spinal decompression unit regulates the tension to provide optimal relief for you.
