Understanding Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy
, an exceptional method, relieves back and leg pain by stretching the spine. This innovative treatment uses traction to gently create space between the bones, joints, and discs, thereby relieving pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, and potentially preventing serious injuries.

Not only does spinal decompression therapy alleviate discomfort, but it also promotes the body’s natural healing processes. The therapy aids in the revitalization of crucial spinal components by enhancing the flow of oxygen, nutrients, and fluids to the spinal discs.

Non-Surgical Approach

One of the key attributes of spinal decompression therapy is its non-surgical approach. This therapy employs traction therapy, which involves the use of pulleys, weights, and a traction table, or inversion therapy, leveraging gravity to alleviate spinal pressure.

Many patients suffering from chronic low back pain prefer non-surgical spinal decompression therapy as it offers pain reduction without the risks of surgery. The choice isn’t merely about dodging surgical complications; it’s also about opting for a therapy that synergizes with the body’s innate healing abilities.

Conditions Treated

Spinal decompression therapy stands as a verified remedy for a wide array of spinal conditions. It effectively treats:

  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched nerves

The goal of this therapy is to treat herniated discs and relieve pain and discomfort caused by a bulging disc or a herniated disc, by establishing negative pressure within the spinal discs and fostering an ideal healing environment.

Moreover, the DRX9000 system at Alliance Orthopedics is specifically designed to provide pain relief for such spinal conditions. It gently stretches the spine, enhancing the effectiveness of spinal decompression therapy. Customized treatment plans are developed to target the exact areas of the spine requiring attention, further enhancing the success of the therapy.

The DRX9000® System

The DRX9000® System is a marvel of modern medicine, specifically designed for spinal decompression. It has received FDA clearance for the treatment of disc-related conditions such as herniated and bulging discs, making it a trusted solution for patients seeking non-surgical treatment options.

At Alliance Orthopedics, we incorporate the DRX9000® System with the latest technology to address a variety of spinal conditions. The effectiveness of the DRX9000® System is validated by experts from highly respected institutions, instilling our patients with confidence in the treatment they receive.

How It Works

The DRX9000® spinal decompression device operates by:

  • Applying pressure and stretching the spine
  • Creating space between spinal discs
  • Allowing for an increased flow of nutrients
  • Promoting healing

Patients, positioned on a computer-controlled table using a pelvis and trunk harness, receive customized spinal decompression therapy from the medical DRX9000 system. The system’s servo motors, which utilize ‘nested closed-loop feedback’, tailor the therapy to distinct patient needs.

This personalized approach helps to enhance the patient’s range of movement, reducing the pressure within the spinal discs and thereby improving mobility.

Customized Treatment Plans

One of the significant advantages of the DRX9000® system is its ability to offer customized treatment plans. The system adjusts the amount and angle of traction forces, optimizing treatment for individual spinal areas.

Depending on the patient’s specific condition, the total number of treatment sessions with the DRX9000® can vary. This individualized approach to spinal decompression therapy ensures the treatment is as effective as possible. Our expert providers harness their detailed understanding of various spinal conditions to inform these customized treatment plans, integrating specific exercises for enhanced care outcomes.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy

The benefits of spinal decompression therapy include:

  • Pain relief
  • Reduction of spinal disk pressure
  • Improved movement of essential nutrients, oxygen, and water into the disks
  • Enhanced healing process

The absence of downtime stands as another significant advantage of this therapy. Patients can immediately return to their normal daily activities after undergoing spinal decompression therapy, making it an optimal choice for those seeking an effective treatment that doesn’t disrupt their routine.

Pain Relief

Pain relief ranks as one of the chief benefits of spinal decompression therapy. The traction technique stretches the spine, allowing for bulging or herniated discs to retract, which can significantly alleviate back pain.

Moreover, conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis can cause pain, numbness, and tingling, all of which are mitigated through the spinal decompression process. The movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs during spinal decompression therapy promotes healing of discs and helps prevent future injuries, offering long-term relief.

Improved Mobility

Another noteworthy benefit of spinal decompression therapy is improved mobility. For patients experiencing chronic pain or limited movement due to spinal conditions, this therapy can be a game-changer.

By creating the necessary space between vertebrae, spinal decompression therapy aids in boosting spinal mobility. This reduced pressure on spinal discs and nerves results in greater flexibility and improved functionality in patients with spinal issues. Whether it’s bending to tie a shoe or swinging a golf club, patients often experience a notable improvement in their range of movement.

Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies, alongside spinal decompression therapy, can significantly enhance the treatment’s efficacy, providing the appropriate treatment for each patient. These therapies include:

  • Dry Needling
  • Chiropractic care
  • Physical therapy
  • Traction
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

These therapies can work synergistically with spinal decompression treatments.

At Alliance Orthopedics, we believe in a multi-faceted approach to patient care. Therefore, we often integrate cold therapy and electrical stimulation with spinal decompression to maximize treatment effectiveness. These additional therapies aid in reducing inflammation, easing pain, and promoting muscle relaxation.

Cold therapy

Cold therapy is frequently implemented after spinal decompression therapy to help reduce inflammation and alleviate resulting pain. This therapy involves the application of ice or cold packs to the affected area, which helps to reduce blood flow and, subsequently, inflammation.

For individuals experiencing acute back pain, cold packs can serve as a supplementary self-care treatment alongside spinal decompression therapy. It’s a simple, non-invasive addition that can make a significant difference in the treatment outcomes.

Electrical stimulation

Another complementary therapy used in conjunction with spinal decompression is electrical stimulation. This therapy involves delivering mild electrical charges to help muscles relax and alleviate nerve pain.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is one form of electrical stimulation often used. By delivering painless electrical pulses to the nerve fibers through the skin, TENS can help control pain and facilitate muscle relaxation, further enhancing the impacts of spinal decompression therapy.

Choosing the Right Provider in New Jersey

Selecting the right provider for spinal decompression therapy can vastly influence your treatment experience and outcomes. A provider with over a decade of service can ensure a wealth of experience in effectively treating spinal conditions through decompression therapy.

Moreover, a track record of attentive and personalized care is crucial when choosing a spinal decompression provider. It reflects the quality of patient treatment and satisfaction, assuring that you’re in capable hands.

Experience and expertise

To be considered for their expertise, providers of spinal decompression therapy should hold board certifications and specializations in fields like sports medicine. These qualifications and certifications attest to their competency and dedication to providing high-quality care.

At Alliance Orthopedics, we boast a team of multi-specialty board-certified providers, demonstrating a superior level of expertise in the field of spinal decompression therapy. Our team’s wide-ranging expertise allows us to offer comprehensive and personalized care to our patients.
