Conditions such as herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica (leg pain originating from the low back), cervical radiculopathy (arm pain originating from the neck), neck pain and general low back pain can be treated with this type of therapy.
Many times spinal decompression and traction therapy is used when many other avenues of treatment have failed or as a last resort before surgery. Spinal decompression and traction therapy is designed to create a negative pressure within the disc to promote re-hydration and self-healing of the disc tissue. This effect can thereby relieve pain that is caused by nerve root compression, or pain that is caused by injured or unhealthy discs. This form of traction therapy is relatively new and studies are ongoing, however many cases have shown promising results when spinal decompression and traction therapy is applied properly.
