Back and neck pain make the simplest tasks nearly impossible.

You may be unable to walk, bend, work, or drive, as turning your head to see the car behind you - a function we barely even think about under normal conditions - is not possible. This kind of debilitating pain impacts the quality of life.

It may be that you've tried to get help. You may have already seen doctors for traditional medical and chiropractic care, without results. Perhaps it appears the only possibility is surgery.

But this is not your only option.

Dr. James DiGiuseppi DC of the Spine and Disc Center of Brooklyn has been treating patients with these conditions for more than 32 years, reinstating their quality of life through nonsurgical treatment. No spinal injections or drugs are involved. Instead, he utilizes decompression therapy, a leading non-surgical alternative treatment for serious neck and low back pain.

"This gentle treatment method has been shown to greatly reduce or eliminate back and neck pain," says Dr. DiGiuseppi. "It has helped people who are at the end of their rope."

Decompression therapy effectively treats disabling low back, neck, and radiating leg and arm pain by reducing the pressure on spinal nerves, discs and joints.

"It renders quick, effective, and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle," says the doctor. "There is a 90 percent success rate - and those are pretty good odds."

Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers, and technicians at major teaching hospitals, says Dr. DiGiuseppi, who is trained in these methods.

The certification course was designed by the leading expert in spinal decompression, Dr. Jay Kennedy, D.C., who taught doctors worldwide and treated thousands of patients using a variety of decompression systems. To gain certification involves more than 40 hours of instruction, including hands-on training sessions, followed by certification examinations.

"We are pleased that we can serve our patients and others in the community with advanced spinal decompression therapy," says Dr. DiGiuseppi.

Decompression therapy begins with a series of sessions that typically run three or four times per week. It's all done while the patient is fully clothed, either face down, or face up, on the table. During each of these sessions, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues, says the doctor. In addition, patients may be asked to complete specific exercises designed to help strengthen muscles.

People with spinal stenosis, bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs, pinched nerves, and sciatica have found relief through this method.
