Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a non-invasive treatment that has been clinically proven to alleviate chronic and severe back pain usually caused from a disc bulge, disc herniation, sciatica, or spinal stenosis. Being in pain can restrict you from living your life.
At NorthEast Spine and Sports, we help cure pain and prevent it from returning. Each treatment typically lasts 45 minutes and can be done in our Jackson, Point Pleasant, Barnegat, Monroe, Manchester, and Aberdeen offices. We often get asked — does spinal decompression treatment hurt? In our experience, it does not.
In 1985, spinal decompression was developed and pioneered by Dr. Allan Dyer. In 1991, he introduced the first non-surgical spinal decompression table — the Vax-D, a table we use today. The Vax-D is used for reducing (and in best cases) eliminating back pain in patients.
As part of spinal decompression therapy, dependent upon the patient and their needs, we may perform cold laser therapy. Patients are fully clothed at all times and tend to find treatment relaxing.
