Decompression for Herniation

When considering your options for a herniated disc, non-surgical decompression therapy is a relatively newer treatment that is gaining traction. Remember, because most herniated disc injuries will return to a state of full recovery by themselves, our treatment is focused solely on supporting the body’s natural healing mechanisms. By lending the body all the tools at our disposal, we seek improvements in pain, increased speed of recovery and strengthening of the back so that injuries will never recur.

Decompression utilizes a traction table that gently stretches the spine, reducing the build up of pressure in the injured region. By lengthening restrictive muscles, we promote retraction of the leaking disc material.  This also opens up pathways for nutrients to flow into the damage area, expediting the healing process. Decompression therapy works in conjunction with our recommendations on exercise, nutrition and posture. Often times, there is an underlying muscular imbalance caused by poor posture or physical trauma that may have contributed to the injury in the first place. By identifying and correcting such technicalities, we prevent injuries from reoccurring.

Do not pass days by in the grips of herniated disc pain: call our office at (201) 342-6111. Our practice in Hackensack works in phases that begin by reducing pain and restoring movement through chiropractic adjustment and decompression, before moving on to advanced stages that return strength to the region.
