Disc Decompression at Spine & Balance Center of NJ, LLC
Spinal decompression therapy is a proven treatment for lower back and neck pain relief that is simpler, safer, and less costly than the alternative—surgery. At our Teaneck chiropractic center, spinal decompression therapy can be done mechanically using specialized equipment or manually on a traction table. Regardless of which method is used, your spine will be stretched and repositioned in order to relieve the pressure within your spinal discs. The manipulation and stretching of your spinal joints through decompression therapy works to free trapped nerves, reduce pain, restore your body’s range of motion and realign your spinal column.
Sessions last anywhere from 30-45 minutes depending on the individual needs of each patient. Some patients feel relief after one treatment while most feel relief after only a few treatments. Despite the varying levels of relief, it takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks to reach long term results. This is why it is important to complete the full treatment plan that is prescribed to you by Dr. Nixdorf as we want to ensure you achieve these long term benefits.

Advantages to Receiving Spinal Decompression Therapy from Our Teaneck, NJ Chiropractor
The greatest benefits of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy are that it is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative treatment that has been proven effective with a wide variety of patients. The procedure is relatively painless and usually provides immediate pain relief to those with debilitating back or neck pain. The relief of pressure can also help to naturally heal the discs and nerves found in the spinal column. Spinal decompression not only restores your body’s spinal alignment but it restores overall health to your spine. Being that a correctly aligned, fully stretched and hydrated spine is essential for overall back health, spinal decompression is necessary in order to help return the spine back to or bring it close to its original state before the pain or injury took place.
Whether it is sitting comfortably at work or school, performing your daily rituals and tasks, keeping physically fit and active, or playing with your children or grandchildren, spinal decompression will relieve the chronic pain you feel and get you back to living your life.
The Cox Table at Spine & Balance Center of NJ, LLC
Dr. Karl Nixdorf is a certified Cox practitioner who holds both his cervical certification and his lumbar certification. He is one of only 200 people who hold both certifications for the Cox Technic. The Cox Technic is a proven chiropractic technique for lower back pain relief and healing. It is a non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on the Cox Table. The table is a specially designed chiropractic instrument for this purpose. The table provides effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression to patients. This form of decompression can reduce or remove pressure exerted by a herniated disc on a nerve. Ultimately, this can lead to reduced back as well as reduced leg pain.
