One possibility that quickly comes to mind is build-up in the disposal itself; try running some ice cubes down the disposal a couple times, and see if this helps.

The inner workings of the disposal can become coated with food debris, and that will slow the flow of water; when the disposal's running, force overcomes this. The shards of ice will help cut loose build-ups and restore a better flow.
