Spinal Decompression Available at Wellness One of South Bergen
For those suffering from the pain and discomfort of a disc injury, a doctor may recommend spinal decompression. This form of care uses intermittent traction to help release pressure on the disc and spinal nerve root. Decompression works with the body’s ability to adapt to structured tension, using this force to correct the problem, without drugs or surgery.
While decompression treatment has been a mainstay in recovery for professional athletes, it has only become available to the general public in recent years.
Wellness One of South Bergen offers this revolutionary approach to non-surgical neck and back pain in its state-of-the-art physical therapy facility under the direction of Dr. Haider Rizvi. “Patients who have acute pain often find relief with the use of spinal decompression, but the real benefit is for those who have chronic back pain,” notes Dr. Rizvi. “Most patients respond quickly and feel noticeable changes within a few sessions.” The most common problems that have responded well to this type of care include cervical and lumbar radiculopathy and acute whiplash injuries sustained from motor vehicle accidents.
During decompression therapy, a patient lies on the table and all movements are controlled by precise, computerized adjustments.
While the movement may be subtle, the benefits are significant
When combined with physical therapy a patient can experience tremendous success.
