Traction

Spinal decompression stretches and decompresses the spine in a safe, controlled and very specific way to open the disc spaces.  This decreases the pressure and allows an increase in blood flow, reducing inflammation and can be used with patients that have herniated or bulging discs in the neck and lower back. 

One of the best ways to help an injured disc is decompression therapies like intersegmental traction. Discs do not have good blood supply so they need to compress and decompress to allow nutrients in so they can heal.
