Spinal Decompression

A leading multi-specialty healthcare center in Brooklyn, New York City (NYC), HealthQuest offers spinal decompression, the innovative modality to treat neck and low back pain. We provide this non-surgical treatment to address a wide range of disorders and help patients restore physical function quickly and painlessly.


Spinal Decompression Therapy


According to the National Institute of Health Statistics, back pain is the most common type of pain reported by Americans. Neck and back pain can occur due to various conditions such as degenerative diseases, trauma, injury, overuse, poor muscle tone, muscle spasm, and obesity. Pain can severely limit a person's functionality and quality of life. Spinal decompression treats these issues by relieving the irritation of the spinal cord and nerves. The treatment involves the application of distraction forces using special FDA-cleared equipment to treat disc injuries in the neck and lower back, and promote quick healing and relief from pain. This safe modality works to:

  • Treat nerve impairment
  • Reduce loading of the spine
  • Address damaged spinal discs

For the treatment, the patient lies comfortably on their back on a special table. The application of the distraction force separates the spinal disc and creates a vacuum within it by applying a negative pressure. This vacuum helps to pull any herniated or protruded material back into the disc, relieving pressure between the discs. This vacuum also promotes blood flow to the area, providing nutrition and oxygen and encouraging healing.

The treatment is carried out with specialized equipment by the highly trained medical staff at HealthQuest. Performed in a pleasant, office-based setting, the treatment sessions are of short duration - just 20-25 minutes.

At HealthQuest, we provide treatment for the following disorders using non-surgical spinal decompression:

  • Sciatica
  • Disc hernia
  • Disc protrusion
  • Foramenal stenosis
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Radiculopathy
  • Spondylosis

Proper Evaluation and Diagnosis

Patients are first thoroughly evaluated to determine candidature for the treatment. Once cleared, our physicians will develop a customized treatment plan based on the diagnosis of their medical condition. MRI may be used to further update the treatment. This advanced treatment is combined with HealthQuest’s whole body and scientifically innovative approach.
