Newark Pain and Rehab Center Announces Spinal Decompression as Successful Method for Treating Low Back Pain and Sciatica

NEWARK, NJ--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - Dr. Vincent Saraceno, the chiropractor at Newark Pain and Rehab Center, announced that the practice has had significant success relieving chronic back pain and sciatica using spinal decompression treatment. Spinal decompression is a non-surgical chiropractic treatment method that restores natural alignment to the body's musculoskeletal system. This technique primarily relieves low back pain and disc injuries in the lumbar spine and cervical spine. Newark Pain and Rehab Center serves the Newark, East Orange, Ironbound and Irvington communities.

Chiropractor Dr. Vincent Saraceno announced that the Newark Pain and Rehab Center has had significant success using spinal decompression to treat patients struggling with chronic back pain and sciatica. Spinal decompression is a non-invasive chiropractic treatment that restores natural alignment to the spine and relieves pain.

"Spinal decompression is a completely safe and effective treatment for back pain and sciatica," said Dr. Vincent Saraceno. "All too often, my patients are overwhelmed with pain and frustrated with traditional medical treatments that simply 'cover up' their pain symptoms. Spinal decompression actually treats the problem, correcting the underlying condition to not only relieve pain, but also prevent future problems."

Chronic back pain and sciatica is often caused by a herniated disc. This may be the result of natural wear and tear on the musculoskeletal system, or the direct result of an auto injury or other traumatic spinal injury. When a disc becomes herniated, it slips out of alignment, putting pressure on the nearby nerve, which causes pain. If the disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, a condition known as sciatica occurs.

"Traditional medical treatments use prescription medication to cover up back pain," said Dr. Saraceno. "While medication can temporarily relieve pain, it cannot cure the problem. Spinal decompression is a solution, not just another pain management method."

During spinal decompression, a patient lies on a computer-operated decompression table, which gently applies distraction to slowly stretch the spinal structures. This stretching is precisely applied and alternated with cycles of relaxation. This chiropractic treatment is safe and non-invasive. Over a series of treatments, decompression therapy helps a herniated disc return to its original position, relieving pain on the nearby nerves.

No all chiropractors offer spinal decompression. Dr. Saraceno has been trained and certified to offer this chiropractic treatment. Dr. Saraceno also offers physical therapy, Manipulation under Anesthesia, and Acupuncture as well.

"Many of my patients are victims of car accidents or workplace injuries and believe they will never be active again," said Dr. Sraceno. "Some have even seen several doctors and all been told that there is nothing that can fix their pain. Spinal decompression is truly a life-changing treatment. I encourage all patients who struggle with pain to visit my practice. Everyone deserves to live an active and pain-free life, and I'm committed to making this happen for each of my patients."

Dr. Saraceno is an experienced provider of spinal decompression in Newark, East Orange, Ironbound and Irvington. Prospective patients who wish to learn more about spinal decompression or to schedule an initial consultation with the chiropractor can visit
