What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal Decompression is a technique which Synergy Wellness Chiropractic and Physical Therapy of New York City uses for chronic spinal disc herniations and bulges. It involves the use of traction or separating the spinal segments to relieve lower back or neck pain. Both decompression and Cox flexion distraction are great options for people suffering from disc herniations, bulges and stenosis pain and who may have a problematic history with painkillers.
These Chiropractic techniques are the gold standard for people with chronic spinal mis-alignment, bulged or herniated discs, stenosis and other spinal issues. Flexion-distraction and Spinal Decompression can both ease pain and improve mobility without the use of expensive drugs that have side effects. Decompression is different from cox flexion distraction. Synergy Wellness’ Dr. David Kulla is a certified Cox flexion distraction technic doctor that can look at your case and decide whats best for you.
Some problems are caused by pressure on the spinal cord and or nerves. Compression of the cord, sometimes congenital and most times due to a bulged or herniated disc can cause pain and numbness into the legs and feet or the arms and hands, not to mention other more severe conditions like muscle weakness, organ dysfunction, and even migraine headaches, to name a few.
Spinal decompression therapy involves mechanically stretching the spinal segments out, using traction. This relieves pressure on the vertebrae, discs, and nerves. The lower pressure also gives the body a chance to flood the damaged regions with healing chemicals, hormones, and nutrients, enabling the spine to heal itself faster.
