Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical and effective treatment option for many common auto accident injuries. Spinal Decompression is particularly helpful in relieving not only the symptoms of certain injuries, but can also help to correct the cause of pain, thereby helping many patients avoid surgery and other invasive procedures.
As part of Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation’s Auto Accident Injury Program, Spinal Decompression may be used for auto accident victims suffering from neck pain, back pain, disc herniations, sciatica, and other nerve-related pain conditions.
The trauma of an auto accident often leads to swelling and inflammation that puts pressure on the nerves in and around the spine. These nerves have a limited amount of space in which to function; when any force causes irritation or compression, pain is the result. Other symptoms of compression of the nerves may include radiating pain, numbness, tingling, or the sensation of muscle pain and weakness. These symptoms can also occur when herniated or bulged disc material puts pressure on the nerves.
Spinal Decompression in our Monmouth County pain management office works by separating the bones of the spine—the vertebrae—with decompression and traction equipment. This gentle, deliberate process creates more space between the vertebrae to allow additional blood and oxygen to the area for faster healing and a reduction in inflammation.
