Here at MedWell Spine, OsteoArthritis & Neuropathy Center, many of our clients visit us to get treatment for back pain. This is no wonder, since 80 percent of people will experience significant pain in their lower back at some point in their lives. To help with this, our center provides disc pain relief for Paramus, NJ patients through various interventions.
One of the common causes of lower back pain is bone misalignment. This is determined by taking a front-to-back picture of the lower back and drawing an imaginary line across the top of the hips; this line should be parallel to the floor. If not, then this may mean hip subluxation, meaning that the hip joint’s ball is not completely in its socket. This makes the spine rest on an uneven foundation, resulting into constant and severe pain.
Another cause of back pain is a herniated disc. This happens when the cushion between spinal bones gets damaged, causing them to get dislodged out of their normal positions. This leads to inflammation and nerve pressure—and we all know these mean pain!
Misaligned bones have many possible causes, which makes determining the exact cause difficult. More importantly, though, healthcare providers need to correct these problems and eliminate the pain so that they can prevent the threats to health and body function that these issues represent.
Why do we choose to provide spinal decompression therapy to address this? The great thing about this treatment is that it’s non-surgical. Thus, our patients who have anxieties about receiving surgery would have no trouble about it. If any of our patients are wondering about the procedure’s effectiveness, they’d be glad to know that this is FDA-approved and has been shown to treat other conditions apart from herniation—issues such as spinal stenosis, bulging discs, isthmic, and sciatica, among others.
With spinal decompression therapy, we can provide the following for our Northern NJ herniated disc patients:
- Promotion of repositioning or retraction of the herniated or bulging disc material through negative intradiscal pressure; and
- Movement of healing nutrients, oxygen, and water to the disc through lower pressure within the disc.
