Recurring and long lasting back pain can be very disruptive to your life. It is important to find the safest and fastest way to treat it to improve your quality of life. Many people turn to spinal decompression therapy in Allamuchy, NJ. Spinal decompression works to relieve back pain by stretching the spine, changing its position and the forces that act on it.
The benefits of spinal decompression include the removing of pressure from the spinal disks. These gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine often bulge or herniate as a result of receiving too much pressure. Through spinal decompression, the discs are able to retract, taking the pressure off the nerves and other parts in your spine. This therapy also helps promote the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids which are needed by the spinal disks in order for them to heal, thus alleviating the back pain.
There are two types of spinal decompression: surgical and nonsurgical. Most patients choose the nonsurgical route first. Nonsurgical spinal decompression uses motorized traction that aids in relieving pain in your back as well as in your neck, hips, buttocks, and the other adjacent muscles and joints. Nonsurgical spinal decompression also treats degenerative disk disease, posterior facet syndrome, and injured spinal nerve roots. During the treatment, you lay either face down or on an adjustable table which our qualified doctors operate in order to customize the treatment that fits your specific needs.
