How Does DOC Decompression Work?

It’s difficult for intervertebral discs to heal when they are constantly under pressure – even when the body is resting. However, with DOC Decompression, the pressure inside the discs can be reduced by gently separating or distracting the injured spinal segments. Pressure on the disc may be relieved when distracted; this allows fluids, nutrients, and oxygen to flow back into disc.

Is DOC Decompression for Me?

Many patients suffering from herniated or bulging disc, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, spinal stenosis, chronic pain due to damaged lumbar or discs, amongst other conditions.
