Spinal Decompression in Bergenfield: Spinal Decompression Therapy is a treatment that helps alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine that are between vertebrae. Over time, due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge, become herniated or degenerate. Once this process begins, pain, limited range of motion and discomfort may occur in the spine as well as the legs. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving this pain. It is nonsurgical, as surgical spinal decompression is usually classified as a laminectomy and microdiscectomy.
Spinal Decompression Treatment Alleviates and Elongates the Spine
This specialized treatment that involves stretching of the spine can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. Creating a lower pressure in the discs will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to the disc that are important for improving functions of the body. This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a different way that you would be unable to do at home.
The Importance of Spinal Decompression at Dr. Fischer Health & Rehab Center LLC
After Spinal Decompression, patients will feel elongated and relaxed. Other therapies may be combined with spinal decompression, such as diet recommendations and exercises depending on the patient. This low-risk treatment is essential for anyone with lower back issues.
Spinal Decompression can help with the following ailments:
- Back or neck pain
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Degenerative disc disease
- Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
The spinal decompression table we use on our patients is the DRX9000, which is the most advanced in the industry. In contrast to typical traction therapy machines, the DRX9000 accurately measures your bodys response as your spine is being stretched. If it detects any muscle pullback or spasm, the force of your body is automatically reduced and adjusted resulting in a relaxed and pain free experience. In addition to preventing pain and discomfort, this self correcting mechanism also accelerates healing – by keeping muscles relaxed, spinal pressure and inflammation can be relieved much faster and more efficiently.
The DRX9000 is the best quality and most researched decompression device on the market. At Fischer Health & Rehab Center we carry this amazing machine so that our patients have access to the most advanced spinal decompression technology on the market.
When I had my auto accident I was in so much pain and din’t know what to do. I went to a doctor who gave me Celebrex which did nothing to relieve my pain or range of motion. Worse yet was I had a “rare side effect” which almost sent me to the hospital until I called my neighbor to watch my house. Luckily for me she had just dealt with this “rare side effect” with her husband a week earlier so she told me it was the medication and told me what to do to flush it out of my system. I was furious and found Dr. Fischer who not only relieved my pain but also gave me back my range of motion so that I could work! Thank you Dr. Fischer and Staff for giving me my life back!!!-John B, New Milford
