Patients who search for remedies for their back pain are often directed to the non-invasive treatment known as spinal decompression.  Back pain caused by sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, and bulging discs is often due to pressure brought about by compressed discs. Discs in the spinal column can compress for several reasons, including injury, recurrent stress, and poor posture. To alleviate the pain, the discs need to be decompressed to release the tension in the spine.

Spinal decompression is a back pain treatment that can effectively decompress herniated discs in the spine. This non-invasive treatment provides a much safer and more convenient process than surgery and is, therefore, recommended by many chiropractors.  During the treatment, all the patient has to do is lie down on a specially-designed decompression table and relax.  The chiropractor will then use a computer workstation that is attached to the table to decompress the discs. The procedure is safe and effective.

Aside from pain management, spinal decompression is also ideal for stretching the spine. The more flexible the spine becomes, the easier it is for it to move normally and support the head. Once the patient goes through spinal decompression, he or she will experience reduced pain and more flexible movement without having to turn to a risky surgery or costly medications.

To put it simply, the benefits of spinal decompression include:

  • Relief from back pain, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and bulging discs
  • Less costly alternative to medication
  • Less risky than surgical treatments
  • Safe, painless, and more convenient
  • Minimal side effects

Physical Therapy New York offers spinal decompression procedures to patients who are suffering from back pain, and patients are assured of total relief after every session.
