Over a series of relaxing treatment sessions, patients can experience powerful pain reduction and remission of symptoms. Some patients even notice an improvement in their symptoms after the first few treatments!

  • Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD) is an effective treatment for neck and back pain, from disc disease, to arthritis, to sciatica and more. Spinal Decompression slowly lengthens and takes pressure off the tissues in the spine, creating negative pressures within the disc. This vacuum effect pulls oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids back into the disc space. This process also repositions the bulging disc and pulls the disc material back into place, taking pressure off sensitive structures like our nerve roots. By doing this, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is actually able to recruit the body's own healing mechanisms to enable the spine to heal itself.

  • Our clinic is spine-focused and a manual clinic, meaning our therapists are trained in hands-on-techniques which can reduce your pain by helping align your spine and joints by getting them out of repetitive dysfunctional positions. Exercises are then introduced to improve flexibility and range-of-motion, to support and stabilize your spine and hips to promote a healthy spine and improved quality of life. Quality Physical Therapy involves exercise, but does not solely rely on exercise to get your better. Physical Therapy is an avenue to recovery from pain, injuries, and physical conditions that affect your body from performing correctly.

  • You will be fitted with an adjustable harness designed to achieve comfortable decompression of the spine - a pelvic harness for the lumbar spine and a specialized foam head support for the cervical spine. The computer inside our table continuously monitors tension forces and the exact angle of tension to provide the most comfortable and effective decompression therapy. The machine has sensors that are able to detect and adjust for the most subtle of movements, spasm, or involuntary guarding effect from your muscles. The treatment process is safe and relaxing. Many patients report relief from their pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions, and most experience dramatic pain relief after completion of their prescribed program of NSSD.

  • Your initial consultion with Dr. Talerico is free. He will review your medical history and study any images you have to determine which of our most effective treatment modalities will best fit your needs!

"I am a mother of 3 and business owner under the age of 40. I have a very demanding lifestyle and I like it that way. Unfortunately, my back and neck pain had been setting me back on a regular basis and I was getting behind in my household and business responsibilities. Not to mention, I started gaining weight due to lack of motiviation to go to the gym or exercise because of the extreme pain I was experiencing from degenerative discs in my neck and scoliosis. The lifestyle I loved, seemed harder and harder to keep up with. Then I saw an ad online for Carolina Spine and Disc Center. Finally, a non-surgical procedure and with an 86% success rate! I called and made an appointment that day and they got me in the same day. I have been going for months now and I cannot believe how much better I feel. It really does work! Thank you Dr. Talerico and Travis for giving me not only pain relief but a permanent solution to my neck and back pain so that I can get back to living!".
