What You Need to Know About Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

At NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, our goal is to provide you with the treatment you need to get you back to work, on the field, or in the gym. Whether you have suffered a back injury due to training in the weight room, playing sports, or lifting heavy items at work, we have you covered.

We provide non-surgical spinal decompression to alleviate both chronic and severe back pain. If you are in search of a clinically proven treatment for your back, look no further. Here’s what you need to know about non-surgical spinal decompression.

History

Dr. Allan Dyer developed spinal decompression in 1985 and created the first non-surgical spinal decompression table just six years later. The vertebral axial decompression therapy table, better known as the Vax-D, is utilized for reducing and eliminating back pain.

What it treats

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy helps treat a variety of different back issues. This includes:

  • Bulging discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Worn spinal joints
  • Injured spinal nerve roots

How it works

This non-surgical treatment is designed to relieve pressure on joints and nerve roots on the spinal column. Following an initial consultation with one of our specialists, you would get onto the Vax-D, either face up or down, and hold handgrips at the top of the table. You should expect to put on a pelvic harness that is locked into the foot of the table. Our specialist will then spread the table apart slowly to stretch your spine. The specific angle and amount of stretching are customized to best suit your needs. This relieves the pressure that is placed on the discs, allowing them to absorb fluids and nutrients that promote healing of damaged tissues.

Choosing us

At NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, we specialize in administering this safe treatment. The staff at every one of our five locations is comprised of experts in pain management, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and orthopedic surgery. We work with you to understand your pain and help you overcome it with treatment and education that will lessen the risk of re-injury.

You can choose to have non-surgical spinal decompression therapy at any of our five locations in Central Jersey. Just give us a call or fill out a form on our website to get rid of your back pain.
