Decompression provides relief from pressure. When the pressure on the spine increase, the intervertebral discs change shape. This built-up pressure can affect the nerves. With disc herniation, sciatica and stenosis, there can be increased pressure on the nerve. This can lead to various symptoms, such as: tingling, numbness, pain and weakness. Our unique decompression table relieves this pressure, giving the intervertebral discs more space. This will reduce the pressure on the nerve, thereby reducing the symptoms. Decompression therapy is also indicated for other joint related complaints.
How does decompression work?
The decompression table consist of different parts that can be completely adjusted to your body. As a result, you lie comfortable and relaxed. In the case of a lumbar disc herniation, a firm band will be placed around your waist that is connected to a computer system via a cord. By means of this advanced technology, a pulling force (traction) will gradually be built up. The pulling force will be adjusted to your complaint and your physique. The pulling force creates the more space in the intervertebral disc and affects the blood flow. The shape of the intervertebral disc can also change, resulting in reduced pressure on the nerve. This can provide immediate relief!
