Northeastern Spine & Physical Therapy


Northeastern Spine & Physical Therapy’s (NSPT) existence is predicated on its unifying mission; to help people live active, healthy, and pain-free lives. Our practice is designed to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries; specifically targeting prospects in need of spine and sports rehabilitation programs. Individualized alternative treatment options will serve as the first line of defense. Once conservative treatment approaches are exhausted, the patient may be transitioned into the traditional medical model (pain management). The use of synthetic drugs and surgeries is an absolute necessity for specific patients/conditions; this will serve as the second line of defense for our valued patients and its use will be reserved with respect to medical necessity.

At Northeastern Spine, we utilize an innovative and unique multidisciplinary treatment approach for each individual patient, aiming to elevate NSPT as a prominent leader on the forefront of the rapidly expanding demand for alternative medicine. The ultimate goal is to provide the safest, most effective, and highest quality care for our patients. NSPT is a patient- centered organization and will strive to create the best experience for its patients, employees, and affiliates as it paves the road for the future of health care.

- Haas et al (2005), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics

"Reduced odds of surgery were observed for...those whose first provider was a chiropractor. 42.7% of workers [with back injuries] who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor."

"Older Medicare patients with chronic low back pain and other medical problems who received spinal manipulation from a chiropractic physician had lower costs of care and shorter episodes of back pain than patients in other treatment groups. Patients who received a combination of chiropractic and medical care had the next lowest Medicare costs, and patients who received medical care only incurred the highest costs."

Chiropractic




Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Doctors of Chiropractic use a drug-free, non-invasive, hands-on approach to healthcare.

Chiropractors use an array of diagonistic imaging tools in combination with a detailed hands-on physical examination when working with their patiens. At Northeastern Spine & Physical Therapy, our doctors utilize state-of-the-art Digital X-ray (in-house), MRI (referral-based), and NCV (nerve conduction velocity) testing in order to properly diagnose and treat our valued patients.

Massage Therapy




At Northeastern Spine, Massage Therapy plays an important role in our comprehensive rehabilitative programs. Massage works by reducing muscle tension, improving local circulation, and allowing essential nutrients and oxygen to gain access to the damaged site – essential for the healing process! Our bodies are smart – your muscles will get tight over the injured area as a protective mechanism to prevent further damage. Before we can actively rehab and strengthen the area, it is important that we reduce the spastic state of the overlying muscles.

Our highly trained therapists perform Medical Massages under close supervision and direction of our lead doctors. Before treatment is applied, the doctor will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the proper course of treatment. The doctor will work closely with your assigned massage therapist. This system makes something very special happen – QUICK AND EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF.

Massage Therapy is used to treat the following conditions:

  • General back/neck pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Stress
  • Fibromyalgia (light massage)
  • Joint pain

Northeastern Spine is proud to offer a unique variety Massage services to enhance your experience in the office. We offer different options to meet YOUR specific needs and goals. Contact us or request an appointment so we can start helping you today!

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression




Non-surgical spinal decompression is a highly successful and safe alternative to traditional back surgeries (such as a laminectomy or microdiscectomy). The primary therapeutic goal is to relieve back and/or leg pain.

How It Works

We utilize customized biofeedback computer-based traction tables to ensure safe and effective treatment for our patients. Applying this advanced technology allows for gentle separation of the spine (decompression). Decompressing the spine creates negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of a bulging, degenerating, or herniated disc. This technique accelerates the healing process by allowing essential nutrients and oxygen to gain access to the damaged area.

Conditions Treated

  • Herniated Discs
  • Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Sciatica
  • Neuropathy
  • Chronic Low Back Pain

Physical Therapy




If you have an injury or trauma, the use of Physical Therapy is an absolute necessity for successful recovery. It is imperative for reducing pain levels, strengthening weak/de-conditioned muscles, relaxing tight musculature, and perhaps most important, preventing future injury.

Physical Therapy at NSPT

Our team understands that each injury is unique. When rehabbing a specific condition, our experienced physical therapists construct detailed programs that cater to our patient’s specific needs.

Most people think of Physical Therapy as simply exercising and stretching in a large room with 50 other people. Physical therapy means something more to us at NSPT. Our caring doctors take the time to work one-on-on with our patients. We apply customized individual treatment plans for our patients, allowing for our doctors to work in a hands-on environment to help you reach your specific goals!
