Spinal Decompression

Conveniently located on Chestnut St. in Newark, New Jersey

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, traction-based treatment that gently stretches the spine to relieve pressure on the discs and nerves. It is an effective therapy for various spine-related conditions, particularly those causing pain and discomfort.

If you suffer from chronic low back pain or neck pain and have been told to just live with your pain, or that surgery is your only option, we have the solution -- Decompression Therapy!

Spinal Decompression is a safe and effective treatment alternative to surgery and has helped thousands of patients who have exhausted all treatment options for chronic back pain and neck pain conditions.

Many of our patients had tried everything to relieve the causes of back pain or neck pain including addictive pain killers, epidurals, spinal fusion, back or neck surgery, or they have been told to just live with the pain.

Spinal decompression is commonly used to treat conditions such as:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Sciatica pain
  • Neck pain
  • Numbness and tingling in arms or legs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Post-surgical complications

How does spinal decompression work?

During a spinal decompression session, you will lie on a specialized table, and a computer-controlled traction system will apply gentle, intermittent pulling forces to your spine. This process creates a negative pressure within the affected discs, promoting the movement of nutrients and oxygen to the injured area and aiding in the healing process.

How can spinal decompression improve your condition?

  • Ease pressure on nerves or the discs in the spine.
  • Decrease bulges on the outer part of the spinal discs.
  • Adjust receptors that sense pressure and movement to help with pain and mobility.
  • Decrease muscle tightness or stiffness.
  • Encourage movements or positions that are beneficial for healing or pain relief.
  • Enhance the flow of beneficial fluids into the spinal discs for better health.

Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called spinal decompression.

Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.

Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.

If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
