The Key to Healing Bulged Disc, Back Pain and Sciatica

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is has a computerized, biofeedback interface that provides exactly what your body needs to feel and perform better. 

Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
