What is Spinal Decompression (NSSD)?
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD) is a process of elongating the spine in a slow, gentle digitally controlled manner in order to relieve pressure on compressed vertebrae and discs. A patient lies on the spinal decompression table and relaxes as the device applies decompression forces to injured areas. This not only takes pressure off of pinched nerves but also helps to reposition bulging discs and gently pulls extruded disc material back into place. Even post-surgical patients and those suffering from certain types of stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal causing nerve compression) have obtained significant and lasting pain relief.

Effective Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Treatment
Nobody should undergo spinal surgery for back pain without considering Spinal Decompression a safe and effective noninvasive treatment that has helped many suffering from chronic neck or low back pain, spinal stenosis or sciatic pain. Traditionally, physicians would treat back and neck pain disorders with oral medication, injections, and prescribed periods of rest, physical therapy, and conservative chiropractic care.
Finally, patients would find themselves facing back surgery with concerns about risk, pain, expense and the lengthy recovery time often found with surgical procedures. “Because of this,” says Dr. Colón, “Spinal Decompression should always be discussed as a last alternative to be considered before undergoing surgery due to chronic back pain.”
