Spinal Decompression in Monroe MI
Decompression is an intelligent piece of equipment that allows us to help patients who are suffering from back pain, sciatica, pain down the arms, neck pain, and many other issues.
Not to be confused with traction that many therapy offices use, decompression is very specific both in the angle and weight used. The machine is intelligent and does not pull when it feels the body resist the weight. The computer will wait until the muscles relent and then begin treatment.
Decompression goes in intervals that work to open the vertebral joint allowing old material to exit and new nutrients to enter. This is very important because the vertebral joints rely on motion to get new nutrients in and old waste material out.
Most people do not walk enough and spend too must time sitting and therefore their spine becomes full of old waste material that will lead to increased rate of degeneration.
