Spinal Decompression Vs Traction Therapy

What’s the difference between Spinal Decompression Therapy and Traction Therapy? The biggest difference between the two is the “Vacuum Effect” that occurs from Spinal Decompression Therapy, which does not happen with Traction Therapy. In fact, traction therapy tugs on the body in a way that causes the muscles to respond and contract. This response will increase the amount of pressure to the vertebral disc that is affected and, ultimately, create more pain. The Vacuum Effect is so important because it is the negative pressure created through Spinal Decompression Therapy that allows nutrients and oxygen to repopulate the disc area and begin the healing process.

Basically, the decompression device will slowly pull the vertebral discs apart to create the vacuum effect and allow the disc to rehydrate with the aforementioned fluids, which leads to pain relief and healing.
