People with neck and back pain can get relief with spinal decompression therapy. It’s a gentler form of traction than the one traditionally employed, with a superb track record and outstanding patient outcomes. While originally used in the traditional practice of traction, it’s now a stand-alone treatment, bringing pain relief to many people.
This non-surgical therapy has been extremely helpful for many of our patients here at Back & Body Medical. It’s drug-free and non-invasive, making it a safe alternative that relieves back and neck pain effectively.
SDT – how it works.
Spinal decompression therapy in Essex County, NJ is a type of traction that’s materially gentler than the one most people have heard about. The therapy involves a spinal decompression table, traction and other motorized devices.
These are used to stretch the spine gradually and gently, relieving pressure on the vertebrae. Spinal decompression serves to eliminate pain arising from spinal dysfunction.
The discs between your vertebrae act as shock absorbers. They cushion these vital components to prevent them from rubbing together. When there’s dysfunction, your spine’s shock absorbers can be affected, which stops them from doing their important work, resulting in pain. Spinal decompression relieves the pain caused by spinal dysfunction and restores quality of life.
When the pressure on vertebrae is relieved, the fluids required by spinal discs to cushion them revert to doing their job. They return to performing their intended role – absorbing shock. Once that’s accomplished, your brain stops receiving pain messages from the nerves involved.
Relieving the pressure is all that’s needed and for that, spinal decompression therapy in Essex County, NJ has been proven a remarkably effective therapy.
From degenerative disk disease to sciatica (which may be a sign of herniated or bulging discs), spinal decompression therapy has relieved neck and back pain for many of our patients.
