(NSSD)Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, also known as Spinal Decompression is effective in treating back pain, neck pain, and sciatica caused by bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs or facet syndrome. Even post-surgical patients and those suffering from certain types of stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal) have reported significant pain relief from NSSD treatments. So if you are suffering from chronic neck or low back pain now there is hope for lasting relief with NON-SURGICAL Spinal Decompression!
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!
Unlike Anything You've Ever Experienced
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, not to be confused with linear traction, slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.
Experts agree that Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression stimulates the body's repair mechanism, providing the building blocks needed to mend injured and degenerative discs. NSSD enables the body to get to work and heal itself! Now there truly is hope for lasting reliefe without drugs, injections or surgery!
What to Expect at Your First Consultation
During your initial consultion with Dr. Talerico, he will review your medical history and study any images (X-rays and MRI's) you have to determine which of our most effective treatment modalities will best fit your needs! If you do not have any images, Dr. Talerico may recommend and X-ray or MRI to pinpoint the specific areas of damage and discomfort. Dr. Talerico will then determine your course of therapy and whether you are a candidate for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD).
The Pressure is Off!
At the beginning of each session, you will be comfortably fitted with a pelvic harness for lower back decompression or a head band for neck decompression. As a session of NSSD commences, you will notice a slow lengthening in your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure.
The treatment process is safe and relaxing. While some patients with extensively injured discs have reported mild discomfort during the first few treatment sessions, their discomfort subsides upon subsequent visits. A patient safety switch, or quick release clasps as well as a button to notify a nurse or assistant are provided, allowing you to stop treatment at any point should you feel discomfort. Each treatment session lasts about 20 minutes.
Typical Treatment Regimen
A typical NSSD treatment regimen consists of about 20 sessions over four to six weeks. Some conditions require fewer visits; some require more. 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 NSSD program.
