Back pain strikes millions of people all over the world, every day.  As one of the leading causes of disability globally, it’s a problem that requires research-based responses from the medical community.  Spinal decompression therapy in New York has evolved from the practice of traction.  Many reading this will cringe when they read the word “traction.”  But spinal decompression therapy is an highly-evolved form which is much gentler, with proven results and excellent patient outcomes.

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical intervention that’s been making a difference for back sufferers everywhere, including here in New York.  While you’re clutching your back, popping anti-inflammatories and hoping it “just goes away,” the doctors and therapists at Back and Body Medical in New York offer an effective, drug-free solution.

How does it work?

As you read earlier, spinal decompression therapy is an evolved form of traction which is much gentler than the one traditionally employed.  The therapy uses a mechanism which stretches the spine, slowly removing pressure from the vertebrae, reducing and eventually eliminating back pain.

Spinal disks are cushions between the vertebrae which prevent them from rubbing together.  When dysfunction occurs, the work of these “cushions” can be affected.  The result is pain. Spinal decompression serves to relieve the pain caused by bulging disks.

The affected nerves are the source of the pain these anomalies provoke.  When the pressure that causes bulging disks is relieved, fluids required to cushion your vertebrae return to their rightful place – in the spinal disks.  This allows them to get back to doing what they do best – cushioning your vertebrae.

Spinal decompression therapy is used to treat a range of conditions which provoke back pain, including sciatica (manifested in the legs, but usually originating in the spine and often due to a bulging disk).  It’s also known to be highly effective in the treatment of degenerative disk disease.
