If you’re suffering back pain, it may be that your vertebrae are compressed. Compression occurs naturally from the force of gravity, but becomes a health hazard when combined with an injury, poor posture or muscle imbalances.

This excessive, restrictive compression can cause slipped discs and nerve pressure… both causing pain. The way to correct this, is by de-compressing the spinal column.

Some conditions typically treated with spinal decompression include bulging or herniated discs, lumbar strains, sciatica, degenerative discs, spinal arthritis, degenerative joint disease, post-surgical low back pain, and acute back pain.
