Spinal decompression therapy is an evolved form of traction which is gentler than the traditional version, with an excellent track record and superior patient outcomes. While it was originally employed in the practice of traditional traction, it’s now a stand-alone therapy, offering relief to those who suffer from neck and back pain.
This non-invasive therapy has been making a difference to patients here at Back & Body Medical. It’s non-invasive and drug-free, making it a safe alternative that’s effective in relieving pain.
How it works.
As stated above, spinal decompression therapy in Caldwell, NJ is a form of traction which is much gentler than the one traditionally used. The therapy uses a spinal decompression table, traction and other motorized devices. These stretch the spine slowly and gently, relieving pressure from the vertebrae. Spinal decompression reduces and eventually eliminates pain provoked by dysfunction in the spine.
Your spinal discs are small shock absorbers, acting to cushion vertebrae and prevent them from rubbing together. When there’s a problem, the spine’s shock absorbers can be affected, which stops them from doing their all-important job, resulting in pain. Spinal decompression relieves the pain caused by bulging disks and returns you to a pain-free life.
When the pressure that causes bulging disks is relieved, fluids needed by your spinal discs to cushion your vertebrae get back to doing their job. They return to performing their crucial work – absorbing the shock. Affected nerves then stop sending pain messages to your brain.
Relieving the pressure is all it takes and for that, spinal decompression therapy in Caldwell, NJ has been proven highly effective.
