Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

A Revolution in Treatment Technology.

LCSR_SD1.jpgChronic and debilitating pain from disc injuries in the neck and lower back are the most common reasons for a poor quality of life, limitation of activity, and why most people consider surgery to correct them or other more invasive procedures to obtain relief.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a revolutionary new chiropractic technology in use at La Ruffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab. Used primarily to treat specific disc injuries safely, this FDA-cleared equipment uses distraction forces to spinal structures in a precise and graduated manner. Distraction is offset by cycles of partial relaxation. This technique of spinal decompression therapy has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs. This "vacuum effect" is also known as negative intra-discal pressure.

Negative Pressure
Creates Positive Results.

LCSR_SD2.jpgThe negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc back into the vertebral space, and off the nerve root and other pain-causing structures. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks of therapy, the results are quite dramatic.

The cycles of decompression and partial relaxation, over a series of visits, promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs. These nutrients enable the torn and degenerated disc fibers to begin healing.

After Dr. La Ruffa's careful assessment of your condition, he will determine if this modality of treatment is appropriate for your condition.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is very effective at treating bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, muscle tension headaches, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, and facet syndromes. Many sports-related injuries, one of our practice specialties, benefit greatly from non-surgical spinal decompression.
