What is Spinal Decompression?
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Compression?
Anything that puts pressure on the spinal cord can cause compression. A ruptured disc from an auto accident or sports injury, degenerative conditions such as arthritis, bone fragment, tumor, or swelling from spinal cord injury are common causes. The compression can occur in the neck, upper back, or lower back spine.
Who Can Benefit from Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression in Eatontown can be very beneficial to anyone who is experiencing a painful or debilitating spinal injury or a condition that is not improving with rest, medication, or even after surgery. They include the following common symptomatic conditions:
Leg pain due to sciatica
Herniated or bulging discs
Loss of sensation or coordination
Injured or irritated spinal nerve roots
Numbness, tingling, or weakness
Diagnosing Your Condition
Spinal decompression is not right for everyone. Therefore, Dr. Marron will perform an in-depth clinical evaluation and diagnostic image screenings to properly diagnose your condition. We will then decide if this treatment is suitable for you based on the findings.
How Our Chiropractor Performs Spinal Decompression in Eatontown
Spinal decompression is performed while the patient is lying on a special chiropractic table that delivers gentle traction motion to the spine. The chiropractor can monitor the amount of pressure being used to stretch and lengthen the spine at intervals. To achieve the best results, your treatment may include a series of 30-40 minute sessions over several weeks.
Decompressing the spine increases the space between the backbones thus allowing bulging or herniated discs to move back in position. Leg, neck, and back pain improves as a result. Releasing the affected nerves also alleviates sciatica symptoms, reduce inflammation, and restore nervous system functions. We may incorporate physical therapy, acupuncture, and K-Laser therapy into your treatment plan to optimize the results.
