New York Chiropractor, Spinal Decompression
More and more studies point to spinal decompression being an extremely effective treatment for herniated discs and many Chiropractors have now begun adding this to their practice.
Before you consider visiting a doctor for spinal decompression know these things.

1: Spinal decompression is not a panacea , Success depends on patient qualification, Choose patients wisely and you will see optimal results visit for more info.

2: Nutritional support is important Supplements like Omega 3's , Calcium and Magnesium are important as well as staying hydrated with plenty of H20

3: Bracing following the procedure using a good triple pull back support to prevent to much movement must be worn for 3 hours following procedure.

4: Developing core muscles once patient can tolerate using pilates, yoga, physio-ball training or my favorite recommendation swimming.

5: I also believe that a proper gait analysis be conducted to determine the need for proper orthotics or feet support can dramatically improve patient outcome.

Be patient and follow all these recommendations. The spinal disc has a poor blood supply so if you smoke quit! It takes 3-4 months to see a change in a MRI so wait to get a post MRI scan.
