The #1 Choice for Non-Surgical & Painless Chronic Pain Care Treatments in Connecticut
Say no to painful epidurals, surgery and medications and yes to a painless, effective alternative!
Long gone are the days of putting yourself in more pain to rid yourself of your existing pain! At New England Spine & Disc, we're committed to offering our clients the most cutting-edge pain treatments available.
We fully believe in using technology over the traditional invasive methods, as it allows our patients to remain comfortable and has fewer risks! We utilize equipment including the DRX 9000, class IV lasers and more to treat our clients' most intense pain.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (DRX 9000)
This FDA-cleared technology has been proven to help reverse disc herniation and relieve chronic back, neck and leg pain. It creates a vacuum effect on the disc, enabling it to pull in a fresh blood supply to promote healing and unload pressure on neurological, vascular and osseous components. As fluids are drawn back into the surrounding area of the damaged disc, nutrients, blood and healing substances help reconstitute the disc.
Decompression treatments are very gentle. In fact, every once in a while we’ll catch a patient sleeping during their treatment! Patients simply lay on their backs wearing a specialized belt around their waist. We set the machine to focus on the problem area and the advanced decompression therapy computer system does the rest.
The recommended protocol for this therapy will vary from patient to patient, however, we generally recommend between 8-24 treatments to correct the root cause of your problem.
What to Expect
DRX 9000 treatments include your injured disc being gently separated. This forms a vacuum, allowing the disc to be pulled back in. The result takes pressure off of the disc’s nerve roots and provides relief to the affected area. This procedure isn’t painful and takes around 25-30 minutes.
Class IV Laser Therapy
A gentle beam of laser light is directed over the affected area to help the injured cells regenerate five times faster than they would on their own. Class IV laser therapy is used by leading health organizations, researchers, universities and sports teams throughout the world, including Harvard Medical School, NASA researchers and the US Navy.
This laser helps your body heal faster by:
- Inhibiting pain fibers to reduce pain signals
- Oxygenating the blood
- Reducing inflammation
What to Expect
Your laser therapy technician will guide a laser over your affected painful areas and administer a mild light. This treats your chronic pain, increases circulation and reduces swelling. The laser is painless, but occasionally you may feel a bit of tingling and/or warmth.
