Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction which helps relieve pain, tingling or numbness, due to structural pathology of the spine. The traction effect, reduces pressure on spinal discs and joints, while simultaneously gently stretching the soft tissue structures. The physiological affects of traction, create a negative pressure within discs; thereby, theoretically pulling disc substance back to the centre of the disc. Consequently, reducing disc bulges. Spinal traction can be used on both the cervical and lumbar spines.
