Man with herniated discs

Chronic pain in the lower back affects an estimated 80 percent of adults at some point in their life. In other words, if you suffer from this condition you are certainly not alone.

At our Medford, New Jersey office, we emphasize a natural, non-surgical approach to treating lower back pain, including a technique known as spinal decompression. Particularly for patients suffering from herniated discs, treatment with a traction table is proven to alleviate pain quickly and safely. If you are enduring ongoing lower back pain and are interested in pursuing a natural treatment method, be sure to give us a call right away.

Causes of Low Back Pain

A herniated disc is one of the most common causes of lower back pain. The condition is also referred to as a bulging or slipped disc and occurs when the soft cushion surrounding the vertebrae becomes misaligned and out of place. For many patients, herniated discs occur as a result of an acute accident or injury. As well, herniation can occur as a result of degener

ation over time, which can be easily aggravated by simple movements or twisting.

Spinal Decompression Technique for Pain

At our office, we routinely recommend spinal decompression as a treatment for lower back pain caused by herniated discs. The technique involves the use of the Triton DTS model traction table, which is a revolutionary treatment tool that offers the following benefits:

  • Security and Stability: A traction table involves the patient lying face up or face down on a table similar to those used at a doctor’s or dentists office. The difference, however, is that the table is designed to stretch the back to alleviate the herniated disc and eliminate pain. Our decompression table is stable and secure, including a thoracic belt and supine support.

  • Pelvic Tilt: Our table includes a tilt feature that allows for greater patient comfort in either the supine or prone positions – which also promotes pelvic symmetry.

  • Quick Response: One of the greatest benefits to spinal decompression therapy is the near-immediate relief many patients feel after their treatment. During spinal decompression, the traction works to introduce negative pressure to eliminate the bulging areas – which can significantly reduce pain very quickly.
