Decompression Therapy in Moon Twp., PA: Spinal Decompression Therapy is a treatment that helps alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine that are between vertebrae. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving pain and increasing functionality in the spine.
Spinal Decompression is a Non-Invasive Treatment to Decrease Pain
Over time, due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge, become herniated or degenerate. Once this process begins, pain, limited range of motion and discomfort may occur in the spine as well as the legs. After Spinal Decompression, patients will feel elongated and relaxed.
Other therapies may be combined with spinal decompression, such as diet recommendations and exercises depending on the patient. This low-risk treatment is essential for anyone with lower back issues. It can help with many ailments and give the body much needed relaxation from the pressures of daily living and injury.
Spinal Decompression can help with the following ailments:
- Back or neck pain
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Degenerative disc disease
- Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
- Sports injuries
Spinal Decompression Treatment Alleviates Pressure and Elongates the Spine
It is nonsurgical and painless. There are various kinds of surgical spinal decompression but they are usually classified as a laminectomy or a microdiscectomy. This specialized treatment that involves stretching of the spine can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. It can help with a variety of ailments and can help maintain your health.
Creating space and lowering pressure in the discs will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to the disc that are important for improving functions of the body. This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a different way that you would be unable to do at home.

I was about 15 years old whenever I started to experience severe back pain and other neck/spinal related issues. Almost immediately, I started to seek treatment and began visiting Weinstein Chiropractic regularly. Over a period of roughly 16 years, I would try to stop in as much as my schedule would allow at least getting some level of adjustment every few months. Until last November, when I discovered I had a herniated disc in the L4 region. my primary care physician laid out a number of treatment possibilities specifically choosing from one of the follow options – rehabilitation, physical therapy or surgery. I decided to get a second opinion from Dr. Gary Weinstein as I’ve always trusted and valued his professional viewpoint. He recommended a course of treatment in an attempt to strengthen the muscles around the disc, ultimately avoiding, what I considered to be the last resort, surgery. It took about 6 months of consistent visits, but I’m now completely pain free. I’ve continued to go, at least once a week, and have not only seen drastic improvements in my lower back and neck, but also a number of other health related issues have improved. I suffered from extreme acid reflux, low mobility and regular headaches, of which, adjustments have not only decreased, in most cases, but have seemed to almost cure. My L4 disc is completely pain free and I am finally able to return to a more normal lifestyle, thanks to Doctors Gary, Curtis, and Kristal. Without them I don’t know where I would be. Weinstein Chiropractic is far and away the best treatment center in the Pittsburgh area. I whole heartily endorse them and would gladly recommend anyone seeking treatment to visit their Chiropractic Care Center.
My journey to better health and wellness began this past May 2016. At that time, I had developed severe pain in my left buttocks. Although standing was painless, sitting was extremely painful. The pain became very distracting, particularly while driving. At that point I knew I had to get help. Everyone diagnosed a sciatic nerve problem and recommended seeing a chiropractor. Fortunately, one of my surgical assistants had been treated in the past by Dr. Gary Weinstein and highly recommended him.
My first visit to Weinstein Chiropractic Center was miraculous! The various state of the art diagnostic scans and x-rays were impressive. As Dr. Gary reviewed the results at my initial consult, I realized that 30 years of being an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, as well as some trips and falls along the way, had taken its toll. Standing with bad posture while performing surgery all day long resulted in significant abnormal curvatures in my spinal column with the end result culminating in severe pain in my buttocks. But there was hope, which became apparent after my first treatment session.
Although the preliminary plan was to treat my spinal column degenerative damage, treatment was also directed to my right wrist, right knee, and both feet. In particular, I have to commend Dr. Kristal for her keen diagnostic awareness of my foot problems. After my first series of adjustments, not only was my backside feeling better; my knee was feeling better; my feet were feeling fantastic; for the first time in years, I had NO pain in my right wrist!
Prior to visiting Weinstein Chiropractic Center, I felt certain that I was going to need surgery on my right wrist to be able to continue performing oral surgery. I knew relief from using Advil daily was not going to last forever. I have now gone from taking 800mg of Advil twice a day to being completely Advil free for two months! Being pain free, avoiding surgery, and being medication free for not only my wrist, but also my knee is miraculous! With the maintenance chiropractic care program I’m in now, I feel that my surgical career can continue for as long as I want to practice; I won’t be forced to retire due to debilitating degenerative conditions.
From my recent chiropractic experience, I feel everyone should at least have a consultation to learn the potential benefits of chiropractic care. At this point, I am sure that my chiropractic wellness program will keep me active and healthy. I am committed to chiropractic care for life.
Needless but important to say, every member of the Weinstein Chiropractic Center is friendly, helpful, professional, and committed to making you feel comfortable. All three doctors (Gary, Curtis, and Kristal) are excellent and provide optimal care. Rest assured, if they can’t fix your problem, they will refer you to the appropriate health care facility.
I know there are no guarantees in life; however, I would be very surprised if chiropractic care didn’t help in some fashion to better everyone’s health. Every organ, tissue, and cell in the body is supplied by or affected by nerves. If the weight of a quarter can cause a nerve in a rat to malfunction, it only stands to reason that the pressure of an abnormal curvature or dislocated spinal column on the spinal cord or nerves existing the spinal column can have many and vast negative effects on the tissues and organs they supply resulting in some sort of bad health issue. So whatever the end problem, why not try to fix it at the beginning. If the roof is collapsing, it only makes sense to check the foundation and fix it. The chiropractic team is committed to fixing the foundation before the roof collapses, and in my case raising the roof while correcting the foundation. I only regret not seeking chiropractic care before my foundation deteriorated.
Thanks Gary, Curtis, Kristal, and the entire Weinstein staff for accepting the challenge of fixing my problems. It will definitely require a team effort and lifelong commitment for better health and wellness. Thank you Kelsie for referring me!

Very nice and efficient people. I was able to get my husband in very quickly to get help with his issues and they jumped right at it to get sorted out. Could not have picked a better place to go.
I was experiencing excruciating pain in my lower back which was radiating down my legs. This was after having surgery that was supposed to relieve my pain and suffering. Often the only way I could get relief was to lie flat on my back on the floor. I began to think about going to see Dr. Weinstein, since a friend had highly recommended him to me. Unfortunately, I had an irrational fear and distrust of chiropractors.
When I finally overcame my fear and reluctance and decided to see Dr. Weinstein, I was very nervous. However, his calm demeanor and caring manner soon put me at ease. What was really amazing about my first visit with Dr. Weinstein was how much time he and his staff spent with me. They took a thorough and complete medical history, asked lots of questions about my health problems and gave me a very thorough exam both hands on and with diagnostic equipment.
I have to admit that I was very scared when Dr. Weinstein first adjusted me. I did not even want to allow him to adjust my cervical spine because of a congenital condition I have which involves my brain and cervical spine. Dr. Weinstein told me that if I let him adjust me on a regular basis, I would no longer need to take the medication that I was then taking for my condition. I politely listened to him but did not believe him. At the time, I was taking four pills a day. After treating with Dr. Weinstein on a regular basis, I quit taking that medication entirely.
I have now been treating with Dr. Weinstein for over ten years. To say that Dr. Weinstein has helped me would be a tremendous understatement. He has helped me work through the pain of auto accidents and the pains and strains that come when you are over 60 years old and shovel too much snow, or lift too much weight. Thanks to Dr. Weinstein, I now work out at the gym, ride bike trails and I am able to sit at my desk at work for hours when the need arises.
Go see Dr. Weinstein. Get adjusted. All you have to lose is your pain.
