Spinal Decompression Bergen County NJ
Gently stretching the spine changes the force and position of the spinal vertebrae, which can temporarily take the stress off discs. Using advanced pain relief techniques like spinal decompression, our doctors, nurses, and technicians can create a situation of negative pressure that allows bulging or herniated discs in the back or neck to retract. Although decompression therapy can sometimes provide immediate pain relief, the goals of the procedure is to create an optimal healing environment that promotes the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids into the spinal discs. If you suffer with chronic pain and are a candidate for back surgery, you should consider spinal decompression therapy.

Spinal decompression is an effective non-surgical approach to pain relief with specific goals for promoting a healing environment for degenerative, herniated or bulging discs. In spinal areas with swollen tissue, decompression therapy can relieve some of the tension off nerves and help re-educate the body's muscles, ligaments and tendons to allow you to stay active. Whether you are anxious to return to the golf course or simply want to resume walking each day, a disc injury can pinch nerves causing a significant amount of pain and discomfort. MedWell's distraction therapy is a non-surgical approach that allows tissues surrounding the disc to heal as blood flow and oxygen are restored to the injured area.
Although motorized and controlled by computer software, spinal decompression uses slow, gentle movements during the treatment process to work joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. When compared to early methods of distraction therapy, such as traction, spinal decompression is a more targeted treatment regimen that allows patients to better respond to the benefits from other treatments like chiropractic manipulation. In the past, patients that did not respond to anti-inflammatory medications or chiropractic treatments had few options for pain relief other than major back or neck surgery. Today, decompression therapy offers exciting new options for restoring optimal spine and joint health without surgery or dangerous pain medications.
Nonsurgical spinal decompression uses a motorized spinal traction device to reduce pressure on discs to allow water and nutrients to surround injured tissue making it easier to heal. After Dr. Maz and his staff evaluate your spine and discuss the types of pain that you are experiencing, we will determine if spinal decompression therapy would be helpful in repairing your damaged or degenerative discs and surrounding soft tissues. Spinal decompression therapy is an excellent option for patients who might be at high-risk for back surgery but seek pain relief and a better range of motion. If you or a loved one suffers from back or neck pain that doesn't go away and doesn't respond to rest, ice or heat, contact MedWell for a treatment option created just for you.
