About Spinal Decompression

Spine Decompression Treatment Chair Pittsburgh PA

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment option for people experiencing mild to severe back pain. This back pain can be caused by degenerative disc disease, a bulging disc, or herniated disc that is placing pressure on a nearby nerve root. Pressure on the nerve causes irritation and inflammation. This may result in muscle spasms, restrictions in movement, pain, and limited function.
