Whether it concerns the treatment of a hernia, degenerative discopathy,or a pinched nerve, spinal decompression provides a solutionfor prolonged symptoms of pain. Spinal decompression canbe achieved in a variety of ways, but traction is one of the easiest and most effective methods. Traction therapy influences the pressure between the vertebrae. Because of the pressure decrease duringtraction, a mechanical effect on the nerves is generated and a biophysical effect on the circulation and oxygen supply to the local structures occurs. This can result in immediate pain relief, but also in
a structural improvement in the long run.
