A 39-year-old member asked:
Is spinal decompression therapy a definite cure for degenerating disc disease or is it just a pain treatment?

Degenerative discs : Occur in all. Sometimes it can lead to pain. Some people respond to traction which this is just a reinvented form. An inversion table is much cheaper and can be done at home at any time with the same results. It is aform of pain treatment.
