What Can Spinal Decompression Therapy Help Me With?

Spinal decompression therapy is a treatment that is often used to stretch the spine in order to relieve pressure on the vertebral discs and promote healing. This therapy is often used by our chiropractors at Connetquot Chiropractic to treat a variety of painful conditions. The treatment itself can be described as relaxing, as it requires the patient to lay on a traction table that gently stretches the spine.

What Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Treat?

Spinal decompression therapy on Long Island treats a variety of painful conditions effectively. Patients suffering from the following conditions may benefit from spinal decompression therapy:

  • Herniated disc

  • Bulging disc

  • Sciatica

  • Degenerative disc disease

  • Chronic low back pain

How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?

In a typical treatment session, patients are told to lay down on a traction table where they will be strapped in. The patient is clothed and a strap is placed on the hips. The table moves slowly back and forth, stretching and relaxing the muscles and vertebrae. The idea behind this therapy is that the traction allows the bulging tissue to move back into place and helps to create room for healing nutrients to pass through the spine. 

Benefits of Receiving Spinal Decompression Therapy? 

Many patients with debilitating back problems choose to treat their conditions with spinal decompression therapy. The reasons for this vary, but for the wide majority of patients, the benefits are as follows:

  • Treatments are generally relaxing and painless

    • Patients report feeling a stretch in their spine which can be very soothing.

  • Treatment does not require anesthetics

    • For those that are allergic or sensitive to anesthesia, this treatment is a great alternative to surgery which requires anesthetics.

  • Patients who suffer from chemical dependency can find solace in spinal decompression therapy as it requires no drugs to work effectively.
