The efficacy of spinal decompression has been well known for over a century, with numerous studies proving the practice effective in treating back pain, sciatica, neck pain, dizziness, and even high blood pressure.
Fortunately, these are no longer the only options. In fact, at Pittsburgh East Health Center, we offer Supartz joint therapy to address this serious condition and allow our patients to return to their routine activities.

Pittsburgh East Health Center: Your Source for Effective Back Pain Relief
Your spine plays an important role in your body, housing nerves that transmit information to and from the brain. When the spinal column or discs experience injury or other health conditions, the end result is intense pain—sometimes in other parts of the body (such as the arms and legs). To treat the underlying condition responsible for your discomfort, our healthcare specialist must first perform a complete evaluation and diagnostic assessment to identify your particular medical issue. We treat a number of common spine and disc concerns, including:
- herniated or bulging discs
- disc degeneration
- spinal stenosis
- fractured vertebrae
Our treatment options include physical rehabilitation, supartz therapy, chiropractic care and more. We can prescribe a treatment plan that will maximize recovery—so you can enjoy pain relief sooner rather than later. In addition, our staff can develop an at-home program to complement your treatment sessions.

Spinal decompression uses mechanical traction to gently stretch the spine. During this procedure, you will lay on a special table while our healthcare professional controls the traction device through a computer. A session typically consists of 15 one-minute periods of decompression with a relaxation cycle in between, for a total of 30 minutes.
With Supartz joint therapy, our healthcare professionals will inject a purified solution of sodium hyaluronate directly into the affected joint. Because sodium hyaluronate is a natural substance found in the body’s cartilage, this allows increases lubrication in the knee—which, in turn, relieves the pain.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser therapy – sometimes known as “class 4” laser therapy – uses specific light wavelengths to penetrate damaged tissue and begin the healing process. Our knee specialists can choose the exact depth that the laser will penetrate in order to target the root of your pain.
