Spinal Decompression Therapy
Chronic back pain is not only a physical sensation. Many people who suffer from spinal arthritis, herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis also experience a change in mood. Many of our Brooklyn patients tell us that beyond physical pain, they also “feel funny” or “not themselves.” This type of confused thinking is common amongst people who suffer from back pain, and if left untreated, these thoughts are capable of manifesting into serious forms of depression. If you have been suffering from severe back or neck pain and feel like nothing you’ve tried in the past has worked, New York Medical Services may have a solution.
What is non-surgical spinal decompression?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a relatively new treatment but it is quickly gaining popularity in the chiropractic community. It is the perfect technique for those suffering from chronic back and neck pain as well as many other serious spinal conditions. It uses state-of-the-art technology, a high-tech decompression table, as well as bands, belts and pulleys to stretch the spine and pull out spinal abnormalities and restore the spine to alignment.
What should I expect?
Upon arrival one of our certified chiropractors will perform an in-depth spinal assessment. Afterwards, he or she will utilize the decompression table, which can be tilted at various angles to release nerve compression.
What conditions does spinal decompression treat?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is used to treat many conditions affecting the spine. When the proper spinal decompression exercises are performed under the supervision of our certified chiropractors, it can help treat the symptoms of the following conditions:
- Herniated and degenerative discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Worn spinal joints
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
- Spinal arthritis
- Pinched nerves
Is spinal decompression safe?
Yes, spinal decompression therapy is a safe and proven method of alleviating most conditions. However, spinal decompression therapy isn’t for all of our Brooklyn clients. If you have a ruptured disc or a disc protrusion we may recommend other methods to relieve your back pain.
