Lumbar Decompression: Decompression is a modern form of motorized traction that is used to treat low back and radiating leg pain. It is successful in treating degenerative spinal conditions and herniating discs. When a disc is herniated or bulging it could impinge on nerves and create radiating pain down the leg, such as sciatica. Spinal decompression produces and sustains negative pressures within the disc, creating a vacuum effect that draws in nutrients and fluids to promote the repair of injured discs and surrounding tissue. This vacuum has also been shown to aid in gently repositioning the spinal disc material which takes the pressure off of the nerves that are causing pain.
