Spinal Decompression Therapy

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

 

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a nonsurgical treatment option for people experiencing mild to moderate back pain. If you are experiencing pain in your back and are in need of Spinal Decompression Therapy, come to United Rehab Physical Therapy in Ronkonkoma. The pain can be caused by a degenerative disc disease that is placing pressure on a nearby nerve root. Other injuries that may cause the pain include:

 

  • Sciatica

  • Radiating arm pain

  • Herniated discs

  • Bulging discs

  • Leg pain

  • Facet Syndromes

 

This type of therapy is used to realign the components of the spine in order to relieve pressure on a pinched nerve. By using traction, this therapy increases circulation to the damaged disc, allowing it to heal naturally.

 

This treatment method is very safe and utilizes FDA cleared equipment. The whole process happens microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over a few weeks time, the results are quite dramatic. If you are suffering from chronic back pain, stop by United Rehab Physical Therapy in Ronkonkoma.

 

The Process of Spinal Decompression Therapy.

 

For lower back, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back or stomach on the decompression table. The patient has a set of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. For the neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair of soft rubber pads behind the neck. For the most part, patients enjoy the treatment because it is typically quite comfortable

 

Who is Not a Candidate for Spinal Decompression Therapy?

 

The following factors may eliminate this therapy as a treatment option for certain individuals:

 

  • Advanced disc degeneration

  • Osteoporosis

  • Pregnancy

  • Obesity

  • Advanced Age

  • Other musculoskeletal conditions or injuries

 

You should always consult your physician in order to see if Spinal Decompression Therapy is the right treatment for you.

 

At United Rehab Physical Therapy in Ronkonkoma, our goal is to treat each individual and to cater to their specific needs. If you need Spinal Decompression Therapy call us at 631-805-2850 today!
