Spinal Decompression in Hoboken, NJ: Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive, specialized technique designed to alleviate pressure on the spinal discs and nerves, making it an ideal treatment for debilitating low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain,. Whether you’re suffering from herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or even spinal stenosis, our team can employ spinal decompression to help address your specific needs effectively. Decompression Therapy effectively relieves pain by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning. Decompression Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle
The procedure involves the use of a traction table that gently stretches and releases the spine. You are fully clothed during spinal decompression therapy. The doctor fits you with a harness and you either lie face down or face up on a computer-controlled table. A doctor operates the computer, customizing treatment to your specific needs. This controlled stretching acts as a remarkable method for repositioning the spine and creating negative pressure within the affected areas. By creating this negative pressure, spinal decompression encourages the retraction of herniated or bulging discs, effectively relieving pressure on the nerves and facilitating the natural healing process.
One of the primary benefits of spinal decompression is pain relief. As the pressure on the affected discs diminishes, nerve irritation subsides, leading to a reduction in pain levels. This enhanced comfort enables individuals to experience increased mobility and perform daily activities with ease. Furthermore, spinal decompression stimulates the circulation of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids to the spinal discs, assisting with their repair and restoration.
Apart from pain relief, spinal decompression also aids in the restoration of proper spinal alignment. By gently stretching and elongating the spine, this technique can realign the vertebral discs, promoting improved posture and spinal stability. Proper alignment not only prevents further damage to the spine but also prevents nerve impingement, which may cause pain, tingling, or weakness in different parts of the body.
The benefits of spinal decompression extend beyond physical relief. Many patients report an improvement in their overall mental well-being, as the reduction in pain and improved mobility instills a sense of joy and optimism. By restoring the spine’s health and function, spinal decompression empowers individuals to pursue an active lifestyle and engage in their daily activities without pain or limitations.
