Spinal decompression is an effective non-surgical treatment that can reduce and often eliminate pain and other symptoms for those who experience a spinal issue or related condition. If you suffer from back pain associated with herniated discs, sciatica, stenosis, or degenerative disc disease, Dr. Barry Fabrikant and Dr. Carolyn Kibel at Fabrikant Chiropractic Office in Plainview, NY, can help reduce discomfort and pain by using spinal decompression as well as different chiropractic and complementary techniques.

What is spinal decompression?

During a spinal decompression therapy visit, a patient lies on a table specifically designed for this chiropractic application. A chiropractor then applies gentle spinal traction, which creates negative pressure along the discs in the spine. This created pressure helps a bulging disc retract, which encourages healing elements and blood to flow to the areas in need of healing and recovery.

Chiropractors offer varying techniques when providing a patient with spinal decompression therapy. The procedure can be done manually or with the use of a mechanical or motorized decompression device that allows for the spine's traction.

A Reduction in Nerve Pressure

When discs become bulging or herniated, the out-of-place disc often presses on a nearby nerve within the spinal column. A compressed nerve becomes aggravated, and this causes pain, tingling sensations, and numbness as well.

The Promotion of the Flow of Nutrients

The negative pressure generated during spinal decompression facilitates the circulation of vital nutrients, oxygen, and water, which are critical to healing and recovery. This nourishing impact plays a pivotal role in strengthening damaged or injured tissue, ultimately reducing inflammation, pain, and other uncomfortable symptoms.

The Stimulation of the Healing Process

Spinal decompression therapy encourages blood flow to the spine's affected area – bringing immune cells and other healing agents to repair and encourage healing and regeneration.

The Enhancement of Disc Health

Decompression therapy plays a role in enhancing the hydration and nutritional support of spinal discs, promoting the health and resilience of the spine’s discs.

The Restoration of Proper Alignment

Spinal decompression therapy helps to restore proper and optimal alignment, which helps your spine function at its best. A properly aligned spine helps reduce muscle and joint stress, which then allows for pain reduction and improved mobility and function.
