Disc-Ease Therapy

At Garden State Spine and Pain Institute, we offer a special form of lumbar/cervical decompression therapy called Disc-Ease Therapy.

This quantum leap in bio-technology is the most advanced non-surgical treatment to correct painful low back conditions and has succeeded in providing relief when everything has failed. The Interverbebral disc is the largest avascular structure in the human body which means that it has very little blood flow and therefore heals very, very slowly. Blood flow must be forced into the disc to prevent disc damage and to allow for it to heal. Therapeutic exercise balls do not force blood into the disc because, as evidenced on video fluoroscopy, the “pivot point” is too large which does not create enough pressure.

However, Disc-Ease Therapy uses a special chair with a federal patent for exercises that forces blood flow into the disc by using special exercises designed to create imbibition or a negative pressure to help regenerate the disc.

Disc-Ease Therapy corrects disc related problems by:
  1. Reducing pain and inflammation
  2. Increasing blood flow to the disc, ligaments, and tendons
  3. Reduces muscle knots (trigger points) that hold bones out of position
  4. Permanently changes the spine and posture
Why is this therapy so effective?

Disc-Ease Therapy targets a specific lumbar level or disc. It creates a negative pressure (or a vacuum effect) inside the disc that allows the center of the disc to be reabsorbed into its proper position. Think of a sponge as an analogy for the decompression process: a degenerate disc is a dry sponge. By creating a pump-like action, Disc-Ease Therapy rehydrates the disc with nutrients and restores it to its optimal function, just like a dry sponge that gets wet.

Disc-Ease Therapy has proven to be successful in treating low back conditions, including:
  • Herniated discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Protruding discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Failed back surgery syndrome

Back-to-health bonus: Many patients find the treatment so comfortable, they fall asleep. No pain, all gain!
