Spinal compression is characterized by excessive strain on the disks that serve as cushions between the vertebrae of the spine. This condition can produce symptoms such as back stiffness and pain and cause nerve problems that can affect emotional and cognitive processes. Some physical therapists and other medical professionals believe certain exercises can help decompress the disks of the spine and alleviate the symptoms of spinal decompression. Always check with your doctor before using exercises and stretches to alleviate spinal compression.
