Chiropractic Services in Montvale, NJ

Our chiropractors are dedicated to treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. We pride ourselves on high-quality treatment delivered with personal attention and respect.

We begin with conservative treatments including spinal manipulation, spinal decompression, and lifestyle adjustments to treat back pain. Sometimes, we will also recommend appointments with our in-house physical therapists, massage therapists, or pain management specialists. For a very small amount of patients, we consider surgical options that are as minimally invasive as possible to minimize the risk of complications and reduce recovery time.

About Chiropractic Care

The non-invasive, drug-free, hands-on approach focuses on patient examination, diagnosis, and customized treatment. Doctors of Chiropractic are also well-versed in diagnostics, and are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, lifestyle adjustments, and proper nutrition to patients.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractors perform a therapeutic procedure known as a spinal adjustment, or a chiropractic manipulation. In most cases, back pain is caused by misalignment (called vertebral subluxation) of the spinal vertebrae. This subluxation can place pressure on nerves, causing pain and irritation and inhibiting normal communication between the brain and the tissue. A gentle chiropractic adjustment is used to realign the spine.

Spinal Decompression

Similar to chiropractic care, spinal decompression gently stretches the spine by changing the force and position. As the vertebrae separate in minor increments, a vacuum is created inside the discs and correct spinal alignment is achieved. Over a period of six to eight weeks, patients can often achieve dramatic pain relief.

Chiropractic Frequently Asked Questions

Do insurance plans cover chiropractic treatments?

Yes, chiropractic care is included in most health insurance plans including major medical plans, workers’ compensation, Medicare, and some Medicaid plans.

Does chiropractic treatment require a referral from an MD?

Not usually, but we’d be happy to check with your insurance company prior to your first appointment.

How is a chiropractic adjustment performed?

The chiropractic physician typically uses his or her hands, or an instrument such as the DRX9000, to manipulate the joints of the body in order to restore or enhance joint function. This manual adjustment often helps resolve joint inflammation and reduces pain. It is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort, and each procedure is adapted to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often notice positive changes in their symptoms immediately.

Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care too!

Is chiropractic treatment ongoing?

A chiropractor may provide acute, chronic, or preventive care – so sometimes multiple visits are necessary to ensure long-term results.

Is chiropractic treatment safe?

Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints – in fact, there are fewer risks associated with chiropractic care than with many over-the-counter medications typically taken for pain relief. No health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects, but the risks associated with chiropractic are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness or stiffness similar to the effects of an intense workout. It usually fades within 24 hours.

What causes back pain?

There are many potential causes, from injuries to the effects of aging. The spinal cord is protected by bones known as vertebrae, and between each vertebra are soft discs that function as shock absorbers to protect the vertebrae and the spinal cord. Many of the problems that cause back pain are the result of wear and tear of the intervertebral discs. Protrusions from the discs can press on surrounding nerves, causing pain or numbness.

What conditions do chiropractors treat?

We care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. Chiropractic care can be especially effective for back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and headaches. We treat a wide range of injuries and disorders that involve the muscles, ligaments and joints – these painful conditions often impact the nervous system, which can in turn cause pain and dysfunction that might seem unrelated to the injury. The benefits of chiropractic care also extend to general health such as stress, sleep, posture, and mood.

What type of education and certifications do chiropractors have?

Doctors of chiropractic are educated as primary-contact health care providers, with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system and the associated nerves. Educational requirements for doctors of chiropractic are very stringent: chiropractors complete a pre-medical undergraduate degree and then 4 – 5 years of professional study in a chiropractic college where they are educated in orthopedics, neurology, physiology, human anatomy, clinical diagnosis including laboratory procedures, diagnostic imaging, exercise, nutrition, rehabilitation, and more. In total, the curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory, and clinical experience and is approved by the Council on Chiropractic Education, an accrediting agency that is fully recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
