What is spinal decompression?

Here at our Tampa, FL, office, we offer DRX9000 spinal decompression, which is a special device that helps to gently and safely stretch and lightly pull different areas of the body to take pressure off the spine. It will also gently realign the spine, which can take pressure off irritated and pinched nerves. Spinal decompression also increases blood flow to these areas, which helps facilitate faster healing.
