Spinal Decompression Therapy Toronto & Etobicoke
The conventional way to treat disc bulges, back pain and sciatica is through medications and injections. This approach, however, simply masks the pain without getting to its root cause. Although you may feel better, your spine hasn’t been healed. As a result, you may engage in activities that can cause you to further injure your spine. Medications also come with numerous side effects, particularly if they’re used for an extended period.
Spinal Decompression can relieve pressure on one or several pinched nerves of the spinal column. This state-of-the-art technology applies a force to the targeted compressed disc. The pressure gently pulls the spine apart, lengthening it and forming a small vacuum between the vertebrae, which pulls the disc back into shape. The vacuum also permits water, oxygen and nutrient-dense fluids to enter into the disc to allow the spine to heal and relieve the pain. Negative intra-discal pressure is the medical term for this vacuum-like outcome.
