Scoliosis Chiropractor in Union, NJ

For a long time, medical experts believed you could only treat scoliosis through surgery or by using back braces. Our scoliosis chiropractor in Union, NJ, offers an alternative to these methods via spinal manipulation. Our chiropractor also offers herniated disc treatment to patients located in Union, Hillside, Elizabeth, and Kenilworth, New Jersey.

Gentle and Effective Spinal Decompression Treatment

For those with chronic back pain, spinal decompression treatment may be the nonsurgical solution you have been seeking. The treatment places the patient on a traction table that gently stretches the spine. This reduces pressure on the individual spinal disks, where the source of the pain is usually located. It allows water, oxygen, and nutrients to flow into the damaged areas, which not only reduces pain but also promotes faster healing.

Herniated Disc Treatment Options

A herniated disc is the result of either a pinched nerve or a degenerated disc. Once we identify the type of herniated disc you have, we can develop a proper treatment plan. We typically take a comprehensive approach to herniated disc treatment that includes massages, exercise, and spinal manipulation. For severe cases, we may also recommend spinal decompression to take pressure off the disc and allow your body to heal itself naturally.

Spinal Manipulation and Scoliosis Treatment

Spinal manipulation is used to treat all manner of back, neck, and shoulder problems. Our skilled chiropractor uses hand techniques to gently manipulate the spine and alleviate tension on the areas that hurt. If you or someone in your family suffers from scoliosis, you should know about the different methods to treat it. Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine, and the treatment depends on the severity of the curve and the age of the person.

For young people with mild scoliosis, the spine will naturally straighten out over time. For those with moderate scoliosis, we can provide a back brace to support the spine so it will gradually straighten. Our scoliosis chiropractor also offers spinal manipulation to make minor adjustments to the spine. This treatment is much more effective in young people since we continue providing treatments as they grow. In cases of severe scoliosis, we may have to refer you to a medical professional that specializes in spinal surgeries.
