Spinal Decompression in Hoboken, NJ
Hudson Family Chiropractic and Physical Therapy
Spinal Decompression in Hoboken, NJ: Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive, specialized technique designed to alleviate pressure on the spinal discs and nerves, making it an ideal treatment for debilitating low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain,. Whether you’re suffering from herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or even spinal stenosis, our team can employ spinal decompression to help address your specific needs effectively. Decompression Therapy effectively relieves pain by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning. Decompression Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle
The procedure involves the use of a traction table that gently stretches and releases the spine. You are fully clothed during spinal decompression therapy. The doctor fits you with a harness and you either lie face down or face up on a computer-controlled table. A doctor operates the computer, customizing treatment to your specific needs. This controlled stretching acts as a remarkable method for repositioning the spine and creating negative pressure within the affected areas. By creating this negative pressure, spinal decompression encourages the retraction of herniated or bulging discs, effectively relieving pressure on the nerves and facilitating the natural healing process.
One of the primary benefits of spinal decompression is pain relief. As the pressure on the affected discs diminishes, nerve irritation subsides, leading to a reduction in pain levels. This enhanced comfort enables individuals to experience increased mobility and perform daily activities with ease. Furthermore, spinal decompression stimulates the circulation of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids to the spinal discs, assisting with their repair and restoration.
Apart from pain relief, spinal decompression also aids in the restoration of proper spinal alignment. By gently stretching and elongating the spine, this technique can realign the vertebral discs, promoting improved posture and spinal stability. Proper alignment not only prevents further damage to the spine but also prevents nerve impingement, which may cause pain, tingling, or weakness in different parts of the body.
The benefits of spinal decompression extend beyond physical relief. Many patients report an improvement in their overall mental well-being, as the reduction in pain and improved mobility instills a sense of joy and optimism. By restoring the spine’s health and function, spinal decompression empowers individuals to pursue an active lifestyle and engage in their daily activities without pain or limitations.
Is Spinal Decompression right for you?
Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, and failed back surgery cases. This treatment can help patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery. Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles, which can help create long term benefits.
How many visits will you need?
Depending on your condition, you may need 12 to 20 sessions. It is our goal to make sure you become pain-free, and your safety during treatment is important to us.

What Patients are Saying…
I am a longtime patient of John and Mike and found their services to be professional, proficient, and effective. I can always count on getting an appointment in a reasonable time and getting in and out is fast. But recently, I needed the attention of a Physical Therapist, and that’s when they referred me to their therapist, Nicole.
My first meeting with Nicole was extremely pleasant and I was quickly impressed with her knowledge in her profession. She made me feel comfortable and she explained what was causing my pain and what her course of action would be. Within a few days, the pain had almost disappeared and I started for feel great. She continued to work with me and again, the appointments were around my schedule and we got to work and I was out the door never feeling rushed.
I want to personally thank the staff at Hudson Family Chiropractic, John and Mike for the work that they do and also Nicole for her skills in getting me back on my NEW bicycle.
Great job Guys.
I m professional ballroom dancer, so I had awful pain in my lower back when I came here first time. Now, after 3 month I feel much better.
John saved me from horrible, daily headaches that I was suffering from for 3+ months. I am pretty tolerant to pain but they were bad enough for me to take multiple painkillers with not much effect. I had signed up for pain management doc and the appointment was months away and I figured I’d come back to John who I saw a couple of times before for another issue with my shoulder. After literally 2 visits, I was managing without painkillers and with maintenance sessions, headaches are practically gone. He *always* has a warm smile and encouraging words, I am so grateful to have found someone whose expertise I trust and who I genuinely enjoy seeing. I’ve sent my mom and my brother to him! And if he can’t do much for your issue – he will tell you straight up. Outstanding!
Hudson Family Chiropractic was my place for treatment when I lived in Hoboken for several years. Dr. Mike & Dr. John are both fantastic, easy going and great at what they do. Dr. Mike, who usually treated me, always listened and answered any questions that I had. He also treated me throughout my pregnancy, which was great. Everyone there is welcoming and friendly. I moved to the suburbs right before I had my son and I really miss these guys a lot. A wonderful family office. Highly recommend!!
Doc John sets the tone for a great experience at Hudson Family Chiropractic and truly adds the “family” feel to the office. As someone who has been a proponent of chiropractic for the past twenty years, I have had the good fortune of seeing Doc John and Dr. Mike for nearly a decade. I maintain a very active physical regimen with sports and excercise playing a part of my entire week. There is no doubt that John and Mike’s efforts allow me to go that much harder throughout the week. Their practice features wonderful, professional and friendly folks and I enjoy seeing them each time I can. I fully recommend Hudson Family Chiropractic to those that need relief from strains, sprains or tweaks. Kudos to their team and thank you!
I’ve been coming to Hudson Family Chiropractic for almost 3 years now. I’ve suffered from neck and bulged disc pain for years before coming here. I also used to suffer from headaches every day; however, Dr. John and Dr. Mike are miracle workers. I now barely get headaches anymore and my neck pain has eased drastically. I now have a quality of life without the pain and suffering I had before coming to Hudson Family Chiropractic. Thank you so much!
I have been going to Mike and John for the past 3+ years and they are hands down the best chiropractors that I have ever been to. It started out with a neck injury and I had a 1/2 marathon race the week after. After a few visits, they were able to help me and I ended up PRing that race. I continue to go to them for tune ups and also when I’m preparing for a race. Also, they are both very personable and easy to talk to!
I recently moved and needed to establish with a new chiropractor. John and Mike are happy to accept new patients. They listen to you and treat you based on your needs. How refreshing to find a dynamic duo who personalize your care!
I just finished physical therapy [pain in right knee] at Hudson Family Chiropractic and Physical Therapy and could not have asked for a better experience.
The center has worked wonders on me! When Nicole C. [PT] listened to my goals and history to determine the best workouts, she asked the right questions. She then analyzed the information to create the best plan, tailored for me. No cookie cutter approaches here.
Nicole is the best PT I could asked for. She gives you good exercises to work on and monitors you while you are doing exercises. As you progress, she adds on more to challenge you. Nicole gives you focused individual attention, using different techniques to treat your condition. Working with her has been an always pleasant personal experience.
The center is flexible with scheduling, always on time and had a very social, friendly atmosphere.
