Spinal Decompression FAQspinal decompression therapy at Marron Wellness Center in shrewsbury new jersey chiropractor

Do you suffer from chronic back pain that significantly disrupts your daily routine? Fortunately, surgery isn’t the only option for treating back pain. Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment that may provide the same level of relief without the expense, risks and recovery time of surgery. Find out more about spinal decompression services available from Marron Wellness Center in Shrewsbury New Jersey.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does spinal decompression work?

Your spine can become misalignment after a car accident or sports injury, but simply getting older or having poor posture can cause back pain. Spinal decompression is a service our Marron Wellness Center chiropractor provides.

Treatment involves gently stretching the spine to create negative pressure in your vertebral discs and help herniated or bulging discs to retract back to their proper position. In addition to relieving pressure from nerves and other spinal structures, this realignment draws oxygen and moisture into the disc to promote faster healing.

What does a treatment session look like?

You’re fully clothed during each treatment and lie face up or face down on a computer-controlled table with a harness around your pelvis and under your arms. Our Shrewsbury New Jersey chiropractor changes the settings to meet your specific needs. Each treatment session may last 30 to 45 minutes, and you may need up to 28 treatments over a five- to seven-week period.

What can spinal decompression treat?

Chiropractors use spinal decompression to treat a variety of neck and back problems, including:

  • General neck and back pain
  • Frequent headaches
  • Radiating pain in the lower back, glutes, hips, shoulders, arms or hands
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Posterior facet syndrome (worn spinal joints)
  • Diseased or injured spinal nerve roots

What are the benefits of spinal decompression?

The traditional treatment for severe back problems involves surgery, which either removes the protruding portion of the disc or fuses two vertebrae together to prevent motion. Surgery usually requires a long recovery period and may involve taking strong prescription painkillers. If your vertebrae are fused, you’ll lose flexibility in your spine for the rest of your life.

On the other hand, spinal decompression is non-invasive and not painful. Several quick, relatively affordable outpatient treatments don’t require recovery and don’t interfere with your day-to-day life. You can also expect a full recovery with no loss of spinal flexibility.

What treatments accompany spinal decompression?

While the experienced chiropractor at Marron Wellness Center can deliver the results you want with spinal decompression treatments, you should also plan to rest, use heat or cold therapy, and take over-the-counter pain medications until you fully heal. We can also provide you with useful exercises and stretches to do at home.
