WESTFIELD, N.J., May 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Individuals who are experiencing chronic pain in the lower back, especially pain related to herniated discs, may benefit from spinal decompression therapy. The chiropractors at Advanced Wellness of Westfield announced that they have had significant success treating patients with spinal decompression therapy. Chiropractor in Westfield Dr. John Pinto recommends the non-invasive, drug-free technique for individuals who are experiencing recurring back pain, neck pain or limb pain, as well as spinal stenosis and sciatica.
Westfield chiropractors Dr. John Pinto and Dr. Michael Batla announced that their practice, Advanced Wellness of Westfield, is now offering spinal decompression therapy for the treatment of chronic back pain.
"Spinal decompression therapy is a highly effective alternative to medication for pain management," said Dr. Pinto, a chiropractor in Westfield. "Rather than temporarily numbing the brain's ability to perceive pain, decompression therapy relieves the lumbar spine compression that triggers pain in the first place. Many patients find that after just a few treatments, they are able to once again enjoy the activities they love and engage in an active lifestyle."
Spinal decompression therapy uses a special adjustment table and computerized adjustments to relieve spinal compression. A gentle pumping action hydrates the discs and creates a vacuum that pulls the herniated or slipped disc back into place. Gentle movement nourishes the spine with nutrient-rich fluids, which supports the healing process.
Treatment is gentle and relaxing; according to Dr. Batla, some patients even fall asleep during their treatment session.
"Falling asleep during treatment is a true testament to just how relaxing spinal decompression therapy truly is," said Dr. Batla. "Most treatment sessions last between 15 and 30 minutes."
According to the chiropractors, many seemingly unrelated health problems often arise from imbalances in the spinal column. Spinal decompression treatment focuses on the root cause for pain.
"We find that a whole person approach to pain management delivers optimal results for our patients," said Dr. Pinto. "By combining decompression therapy with complementary treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, we not only help safely manage pain, but we reduce the risk for future health problems. Our goal is to empower wellness from the inside out."
Individuals who suffer from recurring back pain, neck pain or limb pain may be good candidates for treatment. Decompression therapy also treats patients with spinal stenosis and degenerative disc conditions. Dr. Pinto recommends interested individuals schedule a diagnostic appointment in order to determine if they are good candidates for treatment.
"For individuals who suffer from chronic back pain due to a herniated disc or other spinal condition, spinal decompression therapy is truly life-changing," said Dr. Pinto. "We are excited to offer patients access to this cutting-edge treatment."
In addition to spinal decompression, Advanced Wellness of Westfield offers chiropractic adjustment, acupuncture, cold laser therapy, and other holistic treatments.
