Computerized Traction is a new way to treat herniated discs without surgery.
For many years, the Spinal Decompression Machine has used the same basic principle of spinal traction that has been offered by chiropractors, osteopaths, and other trained health professionals. Both Computerized Traction and Decompression Therapy are applied with the goals of alleviating pain and promoting the finest healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs. It involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and leg pain.
Spinal Decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits. These include creating a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substance into the disc, creating a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction, or repositioning of the herniated disc material.
