Spinal decompression: an effective treatment for herniated disc and chronic back pain.
Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is:
- Supervised by a health professional who holds a doctorate degree
- Effective for a variety of back conditions (herniated disc, chronic pain, arthrosis, facet syndrome, etc.)
If you are visiting our website …It is because you suffer from a condition described below!
This site was designed for those who suffer from chronic back pain, herniated disc or disc herniation, bulging of a disc, sciatica, leg pain, degenerative disc disease, tingling, numbness, pain in arms, neck pain, and for some patients with spinal stenosis and finally for those who underwent back surgery but still suffering from pain.

Spinal decompression demystified
Spinal decompression reduces the pressure that builds up inside the discs. This technique consists of a mechanical disc decompression by suction causing decompression of the disc. The pain decreases because of resorption of the herniated disc, bulging disc or because of the reduced pressure on the nerves or spinal cord: that is to say that the disc returns to its original shape when the bulge or bulging disc disappears and the pressure on the spinal nerves is therefore eliminated.
Spinal decompression achieves this by creating a negative pressure inside the disc, known as negative intra-discal pressure. This essentially creates a vacuum to suck the bulging and herniated material inside the disc space by reducing the pressure.
The same phenomenon happens when you break the window of a pressurized airplane flying at high altitude: everything that is inside the airplane (positive pressure) is violently expelled to the outside (negative pressure).
When there is a bulging of the intervertebral disc and / or herniated disc, the ligaments that hold up the disk material has become stretched or torn. Spinal Decompression strengthens the ligament bands that hold the disc material in place, allowing healing and preventing a recurrence.
In most cases, the healing process requires only a few weeks of outpatient treatment.
