Decompression Traction Therapy uses a computerized program with specific times and weights used for each individual. Most importantly, it uses a procedure called ramping, which slowly introduces the traction effect to the spine. In this manner the procedure can override the body’s natural defense mechanism of tightening the muscles in response to the external pulling. This causes a wider spacing of the vertebral discs, which in turn creates a negative pressure (decompression) on this area. Bulging disc material can actually be pulled back underneath the vertebra and off the spinal cord or nerves they are irritating. Degenerative discs that have lost their height can be opened up to near normal heights, creating increased movement and decreased nerve pressure.
