Spinal Decompression Therapy, approved by the FDA in 2001 for disc injuries, is not only the least invasive form of treatment for disc pain but it is the most cost-effective treatment for herniated and degenerative spinal discs, and spinal stenosis; one of the major causes of back and neck pain.
Spinal decompression therapy is a proven non-surgical treatment for chronic neck pain and low chronic back pain caused by:
Degenerative Disc Disease
Failed Back Syndrome
Spinal decompression gently lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressure within your discs which significantly reduces intradiscal pressure and creates a vacuum effect on the herniated tissue. This natural vacuum helps to reposition bulging discs and retract the extruded disc material which therefore takes the pressure off of pinched nerves. This therapy may additionally increase the spacing between the vertebra as the involved discs are rehydrated, allowing even more room for the nerve. Then as the disc rehydrates, its shock absorbing capabilities are restored reducing mechanical stress on the related structures (facet joints and supporting ligamentous tissues) slowing or halting the osteoarthritic damage.
The combination of Spinal Decompression Therapy with Laser Therapy helps to give you that “one-two” punch to knock out your pain fast.
Laser therapy aims to photo-biostimulate chemically damaged cells via specific wavelengths of light. When cells are chemically damaged they stimulate the pain cycle. Laser excites the kinetic energy within cells by transmitting healing stimuli known as photons.
The skin absorbs these photons via a photochemical effect. Once photons reach the cells of the body, they promote a cascade of cellular activities. Laser therapy light can ignite the production of enzymes, stimulate mitochondria, increase vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, ATP synthesis, and elevate collagen formation substances to prevent the formation of scar tissues. This is a critical step in reducing long term disabling chronic myofascial pain syndromes. Other formative cells are also positively influenced and immune enhancing effects are increased in the number of macrophages. Simply stated, laser enables patients to get out of pain faster and heal at the same time.
I found Dr Cordima shortly after moving to Boston. I had been suffering from idiopathic chronic headaches for months. Dr Cordima listened to my concerns with sincere sympathy and worked with me over the course of months to treat the origins of the problem. He is the only doctor across any discipline who was able to relieve the pain in my neck and head that had become debilitating (I had seen many). I am so grateful for his holistic approach to treatment and genuine caring nature. The environment is always clean, professional, and the staff is always exceedingly friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend.
A few months ago I had never been to a chiropractor but I knew I had a pain that wasn’t always there. I was extremely nervous as a first timer but Dr. Cordima answered my 100s of questions and gave me context to information I found online. He walked me through every movement and machine, and I always left feeling better. I didn’t think my lower back pain would ever go away, and now I no longer wake up with pain, and I’m even back to rowing again. I am forever grateful for the careful work of Dr. Cordima and his welcoming staff!
If you're in need of a GREAT Chiropractor, this is the place! Dr. Cordima is professional, friendly, and honest....but most of all, he knows what he's doing. He doesn't pull any punches, he lets you know what needs to be done and how you as the patient will need to work with him in order to make the necessary progress. I wasn't looking for promises that couldn't be met, I was looking for honesty and I found it here. When I walked into his office a few months ago, I could hardly walk due to a disk herniation. He worked his magic... and with the addition of home stretches and following his instructions and advise, I'm now as good as new. I highly recommend Cordima Chiropractic Center.
I have had chronic lower back pain for years (herniated disc). I’ve been coming to Dr. Cordima for about 3 months now and I have never felt better. His office staff is wonderful and scheduling is very flexible! He makes great recommendations but I never feel pressured to do anything or buy anything - he just wants me to know all available options. He explains everything and the reasons for all parts of therapy so I feel very well informed and comfortable with all aspects. I highly recommend Dr. Cordima!!!
I have had serious back issues for years and it started limiting my mobility and made my breathing a little tight. I had seen a few chiropractors before but Dr. Cordima was the first to give me an adjustment that made a difference. After just a few appointments my back felt better than it had in at least 2 years. Even better he gave me a realistic plan and outlook on how to improve my condition rather than try to sell me on expensive treatments
I been to 5 different chiropractors within 16 years and by far Dr. Cordima is the best Doctor I have seen. A lot of chiropractors will get you in and get you out but Dr. Cordima is not like that. He takes the time to see what's needed for your adjustment and uses techniques that are very effective. Also, Dr. Cordima invested in top of line machines that I wish I had years ago. His adjustments are very well done, you can tell he has the feel and experience for what he does. I highly recommend Dr. Cordima!!
