Addressing the root cause of chronic back pain

Chronic pain can significantly affect your overall quality of life, leading to loss of mobility, inflexibility, and other problems. Many people resort to pain medications just to get through the day, which can eventually lead to addictions. Glen Rock Spine & Rehab uses the latest minimally invasive procedures, like spinal decompression, to address the root cause of your chronic back pain without surgeries or opioids.

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine, vertebrae, and muscles in careful motions. A special technique is used to stretch and relax the spinal components, alleviating spinal pains, discomfort and bulging discs in Glen Rock, NJ. The treatment is comfortable, therapeutic, and restores spinal alignment. Spinal decompression is particularly useful when the intervertebral discs move out of alignment and pinch the surrounding nerve roots, sending pain signals into the brain. By restoring alignment, this treatment frees the nerves and reduces pain.

How does spinal decompression work?

When you’re young, the discs between the vertebrae (intervertebral discs) are soft and filled with fluid. As we grow older, the amount of fluid in the discs decreases, leading to thin, dry, and bulging discs. As they flatten, the vertebrae grind against each other during movements, leading to severe pain, discomfort, and stiffness. Furthermore, the intervertebral discs can get misaligned, or their inner components can bulge outwards, pinching the surrounding nerve roots, which sends pain signals into the brain.

Spinal decompression is an FDA-approved treatment that restores spinal alignment, pushing the intervertebral discs back into their proper place. This restores mobility, allowing you to twist and turn properly. Once the intervertebral discs are restored, they no longer pinch or compress the surrounding nerve roots, so you don’t experience the pain signals. Spinal decompression also releases neural signals that alleviate pain, helping you feel relaxed. It addresses most of the common causes of back pain and neck pain and alleviates the problem of bulging disc for Glen Rock patients.

What happens during the spinal decompression session?

The physiatrists at Glen Rock Spine & Rehab recommend spinal decompression after a thorough analysis of the root cause of your condition. We review your health history, discuss your symptoms, and conduct comprehensive imaging tests to visualize your spine. Our analysis helps us identify the root cause of your pain and whether spinal decompression is the correct treatment plan.

During spinal decompression therapy, you have to lie down on a motorized table as a harness connected to the lower table is placed at your hips. While the upper table remains stable, the lower half with the harness is moved back and forth to produce traction and relaxation, opening up and aligning your intervertebral spaces. The specific method and techniques used will be based on your specific goals and needs.
