In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems was usually given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren’t progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option… until now. Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression Therapy was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.
Ranging from dull to debilitating, 9/10 Americans suffer from headaches at some point in time. A chiropractor (like our very own Dr. Ruscitti) can help to correct the cause of these headaches, not just cover up the symptoms. These causes may be due to nutrition, environmental concerns, posture, and more.
The most common reason people see a chiropractor, 80% of people have a problem with back pain at some point in their life. Causes include accidents, posture, obesity, or conditions such as arthritis.

We can determine the cause and help you to take steps to correct it, especially if it is recurring/persistent.
Hydromassage therapy utilizes whirlpool jets to massage the neck & back for a relaxing-dry hydrotherapy treatment. Heated water is pumped, under pressure, through a series of three rotational hydro-jets inside a water-filled mattress. The water movement created by the jets provides the massage and is similar to the action of a whirlpool or spa. Hydromassage stimulates soft tissues, increases blood and lymph circulation while breaking up scar tissue between muscle fibers. Hydromassage generally produces an overall relaxed feeling. Patients are soothed by the heat of the water and experience a reduction in pain to affected areas.
Our rehabilitative exercise therapy combines strength and flexibility training, using exercises that tone and condition the entire body. Particular attention is paid to building and developing the area of the body called the “powerhouse,” the core region of the body that includes the abdomen, pelvis, lower back and buttocks. It also creates a powerful mind-body connection, developed through proper breathing technique and concentration on smooth body movements to achieve better mental and physical health and reduce stress.
Some of the benefits include:
