Theory of Spinal Decompression (reference: Spine-Health.com)

Both traction and decompression therapy are applied with the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.

Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several benefits including:
Create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material.
Create a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc. (reference: Spine-Health.com)

While on the table the following will be achieved:

Increase vertebral disc space 

Breakdown adhesions and increase circulation

Increase lymphatic flow

Improve spinal mobility
