The spine is the main supporter of our entire upper bodies and spans from the base of your skull to the top of your pelvis. It consists of 24 vertebrae's stacked one on top of the other. Between each vertebrae there is the intervertebral disc, which serves as the cushions between each vertebrae. As we age and with different conditions of the spine this space can become narrow causing pain. Doctor skill combined with the computerized traction head are the keys to reducing disc pressure allowing nutrients to accelerate disc healing. Spinal Decompression has saved many people from spinal surgery.
