Do you suffer from chronic pain in your neck or lower back? Do you experience a numbness or tingling sensation occasionally down your arms and legs? Pressure on spinal joints, discs, and nerves can cause these devastating and debilitating effects on your body. Like many of those who struggle with chronic pain, you may have tried numerous treatment options only to find fleeting relief. Fortunately, at Center Point Physical Therapy New York we can provide quality care and treatment with spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression is an alternative form of treatment providing effective, non-surgical, and non-invasive treatment for back pain. Not only does it relieve pain, but it works to heal any injuries or damage, restoring mobility and function to patients so that they can resume active lifestyles without pain!
How Spinal Decompression Works
Spinal decompression works by using a state-of-the-art computerized decompression table that allows for controlled yet effective forces to be applied to the spine. By gently stretching the spine, the pressure is removed from spinal discs and nerves. This treatment also pulls bulging or herniated discs back into place allowing nutrients to return to damaged discs so they can heal and cushion your spine correctly.
Conditions We Can Treat
In addition to treating back pain, spinal decompression has proven highly effective in the treatment of various conditions and injuries including:
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Herniated discs (also known as slipped, ruptured, or bulging discs)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Arm or leg pain
- Disc injuries
- Nerve injuries
- And more!
Treatment length will depend on the patient’s unique condition. Each spinal decompression session lasts about 30 minutes. Typically, patients undergo multiple weekly sessions over the course of 4-8 weeks. We will work with you after your treatment to improve spinal stability and the strengthening of your core muscles with rehabilitation exercises so you can make a full recovery.
If you are living in pain and cannot find relief, we strongly recommend spinal decompression. Many of our patients report feeling a significant difference in their quality of life after just a few sessions. For more information on spinal decompression, contact our office at (646) 822-0588.
