Spinal Decompression Therapy


If you suffer from chronic back and/or neck pain, you might be a prime candidate for pain relief through spinal decompression. This non-surgical option offered at Physical Therapists NYC can be used for pain management and has been known to improve overall health by reducing compression forces on the discs and facet joints in the spine. For the best results, a physical therapy program of exercise and stretches with possible ancillary modalities is recommended.

What Is Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical option that relieves pressure on the spinal cord, individual vertebra, and your spinal discs. When your spine is compressed, nerves get squished and immediately prompt pain symptoms. The pain may eventually go away but there is often a lingering numbness or tingling sensation because that nerve is still being starved of blood, oxygen, and nutrients.

By stretching the spine in a specified way, the vertebrae are allowed the space they need to move back into their original position and free the nerve(s) that were causing problems. Decompression in a physical therapy office involves the use of a special table to adjust pressure to different regions of the back and body. Decompression can be a temporary fix for pain, or it can be long-term, it depends on the individual, their situation, and the modalities or other therapeutic treatment that is used in conjunction with spinal decompression therapy.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work

The logic behind spinal decompression is that if you are able to reduce the compressive forces on the discs and facet joints, then the nerves are freed, and you will feel less pain symptoms. A lumbar decompression table is used to stretch and relax the spine simultaneously and in a controlled manner that relieves pressure and allows misaligned discs and vertebrae to move back into their correct position.

Sometimes, this pressure release will prompt increased blood flow to the area which will fuel it with essential oxygen and nutrients that travel in the blood. This supports natural healing and gives you a non-invasive, medication-free option for pain relief.

Most spinal decompression done on the traction table is enhanced with spinal decompression exercises designed to support the changes in your spine through strengthening of corresponding muscles. One of the biggest benefits to this type of therapy is that it can effectively target your source of pain through spinal realignment and a rehabilitation program targeted to your specific concerns.
