In brief: Variable results

Spinal decompression machines typically apply traction to the spine.
This can be a very helpful modality to relieve pain radiating into the upper and lower extremities by temporarily "decompressing" the pinched nerves. Unfortunately, sometimes the relief is only temporary.

In brief: Since 90% of disc

Herniations get better over time without surgery, anyone can claim a 90% success rate including this spinal decompression therapy so don't spend any money on it! a cheaper form of this traction is an inversion table which you can buy at a fraction of the cost and is yours to keep and use at any time.
