Why does Spinal Decompression Feel so Good?

Decompression makes sense

Whether you realize it or not, your spine is constantly being compressed- by gravity no less! And during the course of human life, we add in a whole load of other compressive forces that conspire to throw our spines out of balance and degrade the natural structures we were born with. Compression is a signal contributor to degenerative disc disease, herniated discs and nerve conditions such as pinched nerves and sciatica. For people suffering the pain and discomfort of these conditions, it makes sense to try and reverse the harmful forces and the best way we know how to do that is through decompression. 

How decompression works

Specifically using a modality known as mechanical spinal traction, we use a specialized table that stretches the spine and relieves pressure. By opening up space in between the vertebrae, you are essentially allowing constantly-compressed intravertebral discs the chance to breathe and rehydrate. That is why it feels so good. By creating a space of negative pressure, some slipped disc material is able to retract, taking pressure off nerves: the end result is that you feel less pain. And everyone can use less pain.
