decompression is a rehabilitation program that gently
stretches the spine and takes pressure off compressed discs
and vertebrae. This technique has shown the ability to
gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a
vacuum inside the discs. This "vacuum effect" is also known
as negative intradiscal pressure. The negative pressure can
transfer disc material off the nerves that are producing
discomfort, which in turn allows for pain relief. It
happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively,
over four to six weeks, the results can be quite dramatic.
The repetition of decompression allows the movement of
water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside to
the inside of the discs. These nutrients enable the torn
and degenerated disc fibres to begin to heal.
