Spinal Decompression in Brick

 Spinal decompression can be a miracle treatment for those suffering from herniated or bulged discs, chronic back pain, leg pain or sciatica. Dr. Kawa is an expert and one of the few doctors using spinal decompression in Brick NJ. He has been performing this life-changing therapy on thousands of patients over the last 27 years.

It is common for medical physicians who are presented with patients with advanced disc disease (herniations or bulges), to refer to pain management physicians or surgeons. However, a hasty referral for invasive, potentially dangerous care may not be warranted in most cases. As it turns out, many patients with disc degeneration can avoid injections and/or surgery by undergoing spinal decompression therapy.

Spinal decompression is a form of gentle traction therapy that can relieve much of the nerve root tension caused by disc pathology and can even in many cases, heal a disc considerably. Dr. Kawa is one of the few chiropractors in Brick NJ using this amazing device.

Spinal decompression is performed using a special type of traction table where the patient lies comfortably while being gently tractioned to open up the disc space between the vertebrae. The gentle force helps to create a “vacuum” effect on the disc which creates a negative pressure and can cause the jelly-like fluid in the middle of the disc to migrate back towards the middle where it belongs. This can quickly alleviate pressure on the delicate nerve roots exiting the spine.

The spinal discs act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae and are often subjected to uneven compression forces. Compression and “shearing” forces over years cause the outer layers of the disc to break down creating tiny fissures or openings. Once these openings are present, the jelly-like inner material of the disc starts to “worm” its way through these fussures causing bulges which lead to herniations (inner material leakage).

Unfortunately, those who suffer from this condition usually start experiencing numbness, tingling and pain in the arms or legs; depending on which disc is involved. It is interesting to note, however, that many people with disc pathology will not experience symptoms until many years have passed. Studies suggest that about 35% of people with disc herniations do not experience pain. But even in the absence of pain, nerve disturbance can result in altered organ, muscle or gland malfunction.

According to Dr. Kawa, an expert in administering spinal decompression therapy, “Decompression is a must for anyone wishing to slow down spine and disc degeneration and avoid becoming a surgical candidate.” In fact, says Dr. Kawa, ” Spinal decompression, if done properly, can actually heal the disc and significantly reduce pressure on the nerve roots.”
