Spinal decompression is an effective treatment for patients with neck or low back pain caused by disk bulges or disk herniations. It is especially effective for patients with sciatica-like symptoms (pain/numbness/tingling into the arms or legs).
This form of gentle, motorized traction can help relieve back pain. The spinal decompression table gently stretches the spine; this in turn alleviates pressure on the spinal disks.
As a result, any bulging or herniated disks may retract back into the original position, which then takes pressure off the surrounding nerves. By giving the disk more space, it also allows more water, oxygen, and nutrients into the disks to precipitate natural healing.
Our spinal decompression unit is called the Back On Trac. This unit starts out as a “chair” and brings the patient back like a recliner until they are laying flat. This unit also brings the spine into lateral flexion which can stretch the side bending muscles of the back as well as generally mobilizing the joints of the back. The unit also has massage chair functions that provide vibration therapy which can help with pain relief as well.
This is the only unit of its kind in New York State outside of the New York City area! Ask us for a free demonstration trial!
