Life in New York City can get you in the neck – and the back. The fast pace of life, the stress, and the endless movement can wear you down sometimes. The impact of a warp speed, bit city lifestyle can tell on us and the bodies we live in.
If your body is sending you the message that it needs some help, you may be reluctant to answer the call. Picking up that call may mean long-term reliance on pharmaceutical therapy or even surgery. Either option can you slow you down and who’s got time for that? We have a better option.
Spinal decompression therapy in Midtown, at Back & Body’s leading edge clinic, is that option. Without drugs or surgery, you can answer your body’s call for help without having to resort to therapies that interrupt your relentlessly busy life.
How does it work?
Spinal decompression therapy has been developed as an offshoot of the traditional practice of traction. Much gentler than the standard model, the therapy uses spinal decompression tables, traction, and other motorized therapeutic devices. These dedicated machines serve to stretch the spine gently, removing pressure from the vertebrae.
Spinal disks are like the shock absorbers in a car. They act to cushion your vertebrae, preventing them from rubbing against each other. When your spine is out of alignment, those shock absorbers are affected. They’re prevented from doing their job. The result? Pain. Spinal decompression relieves the pain caused by bulging disks and returns you to normal function, so you can fling yourself back into the thick of things. This drug-free, non-invasive treatment allows you to get back to the business of being the subway-hopping, cab-nabbing New York City juggernaut you are.
From degenerative disk disease to sciatica (often caused by herniated disks), spinal decompression therapy has helped hundreds of Midtown patients at Back & Body’s state-of-the-art facility.
