Most people have heard of blown, bulging, torn or herniated disc. Chances are, you probably know someone who has such a condition. Decompression therapy softly and slowly distracts compressed vertebrae from each other along the spine. This allows for hydration and nutrients to absorb into the discs between the vertebrae. Decompression therapy has also been shown to effectively resorb extruded disc material back into the affected disc and off of impinged nerves.
