Back Pain from a Herniated Disc or Sciatica in NYC: Say Goodbye

Living Well Medical in NYC effectively treats back pain from sciatica or a herniated disc.

Anyone who has ever suffered a serious back injury knows about the frustration, the debilitating pain, and the complete, grinding halt it can put to your life. Of course, interventional medicine prescribes tons of medications and/or surgery – some people just don’t want that, and who can blame them? Who wants to have such a vital structure as the spine get cut up if they don’t have to?

At my office, Living Well Medical, we sometimes find that sciatica or a herniated disc is the cause of the back problem, so we put the best non-surgical treatments that use the most current technology behind any treatment plan. Sciatica treatment in NYC will often involve elements of physical therapy (to strengthen muscles that sometimes do not adequately support bones) and a treatment to lengthen the spine and increase disc space like spinal decompression using the DRX9000.

The DRX9000 has been a potent treatment for a herniated disc in NYC for years, and we use it to reduce the load of the spine and help important, healing nutrients and fluid get to a disc that is causing pain. Often in a few weeks of specialized nyc back pain treatment with non-surgical spinal decompression, patients find some relief and improved function and range of motion. Of course, for patients with a history of chronic back injuries, physical therapy and therapeutic exercise have been shown to help prevent re-injury by strengthening surrounding tissue that supports the spine.

If your back has been bothering you non-stop, back pain treatment with non-surgical spinal decompression and all the other services we make available could be an alternative to surgery. Give my office a call at 212-645-8151 and get help for your back pain.

Aging and the Emergence of Back Pain

When we think of back pain, many of us think of an elderly person hunched over a cane while loudly proclaiming, “Oh, my aching back!” While back pain is not exclusive to older people, there are reasons we typically associate back pain with aging. Like many other structures of the body, the spine degenerates as we age. The intervertebral discs of the spine act as ‘shock absorbers’ and are mostly made of water. This water content is what provides a healthy disc with its amazing strength and pliability. In fact, a well-hydrated disc is even stronger than the bony vertebrae it cushions. These discs are especially vulnerable to breakdown since they begin to lose much of their water content as the years go by. When a disc dries out, it begins to lose its ability to adequately support the rest of the body, causing a ‘weight bearing shift’ toward the more vulnerable bones, nerves, and facet joints of the spine. Often this is just one of many factors that contribute to the onset of back pain conditions like herniated discs, bulging discs, and spinal stenosis.

The forces of gravity and disc dehydration often work in tandem, increasing the internal pressure of the disc. This pressure blocks the natural flow of nourishing blood and nutrients, preventing the disc from repairing itself. Spinal decompression can treat damage done to disc structures by gradually releasing this constant internal pressure. This action stimulates the natural flow of nutrients back into the disc material, both strengthening it and taking pressure off of other spinal structures. The end result is pain relief and a return to a normal, functional lifestyle

At Living Well Medical in NYC, we utilize spinal decompression as part of a comprehensive protocol to treat a wide range of spinal conditions. Our practice treats conditions like herniated discs, bulging discs, slipped discs, and spinal stenosis by addressing the symptoms, correcting the root causes, and preventing any recurrence of injury.
