Spinal decompression therapy is a form of traction which is gentler than the traditional version, rendering an outstanding track record and exceptional patient outcomes. While it was originally used as part of the practice of traditional traction, it’s now a unique therapy, offering relief to people suffering from neck and back pain.
This non-surgical treatment has been a tremendous help to many of our patients here at Back & Body Medical. It’s non-invasive and drug-free, making it a completely safe alternative that’s effective in relieving pain.
How SDT works.
Spinal decompression therapy in Clifton, NJ is a form of traction which is much gentler than the one most people may be familiar with. The treatment uses a spinal decompression table, traction, and other motorized devices. These stretch the spine gently and gradually, relieving pressure on the vertebrae. Spinal decompression reduces and (with time) eliminates pain attributable to dysfunction in the spine.
Your spinal discs are your vertebrae’s shock absorbers. They cushion the vertebrae to prevent them from rubbing together. When there’s dysfunction, the spine’s shock absorbers can be affected, which stops them from doing their crucial job, resulting in pain. Spinal decompression relieves the pain caused by bulging discs and returns you to a pain-free life.
When the pressure on vertebrae is relieved, the fluids required by your spinal discs to cushion them get back to doing their job. They return to performing their intended function – absorbing the shock. Once that happens, your brain will stop receiving pain messages from implicated nerves.
Relieving the pressure is all that’s required, and for that, spinal decompression therapy in Clifton, NJ has been proven a highly successful therapeutic response.
From sciatica to degenerative disk disease (which can signal herniated or bulging discs), spinal decompression therapy has relieved neck and back pain for many of our patients.
