Back pain can strike when you least expect it. All it takes is one false move. You can go from being ready for anything to not being able to stand up straight – just like that. In a heartbeat, you’re sidelined, watching the world go on without you. What could be more frustrating?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical intervention that’s been making a difference for back sufferers everywhere, including here in New Jersey. While you’re clutching your back, popping anti-inflammatories and hoping it “just goes away”, the professional clinicians at Back and Body Medical in New Jersey offer an effective, drug-free solution.
What is decompression therapy?
Decompression therapy is a much gentler form of traction than the one traditionally employed. Using a mechanism which stretches the spine, spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive method of addressing back pain which slowly removes pressure from the vertebrae and in so doing, reduces and eventually, eliminates back pain.
Spinal disks form cushions between the vertebrae, preventing them from rubbing together. When dysfunction occurs, the purpose these “cushions” serve can be impacted, resulting in pain. Spinal decompression serves to relieve the pain caused by compromised disks which have herniated or are bulging.
Nerves affected by dysfunction in the spinal disks are the cause of the pain these anomalies provoke. When the pressure that causes herniation is relieved, fluids required to cushion your vertebrae return to the spinal disks, allowing them to get back to doing what they do best – cushioning your vertebrae.
Spinal decompression therapy is used to treat a range of conditions which provoke back pain, including sciatica (manifested in the legs, but usually originating in the spine). It’s also known to be highly effective in the treatment of degenerative disk disease.
