Decompression for Herniated Discs

Non-surgical decompression therapy is an effective method for mitigating the pain of herniated discs and improving the speed of recovery. Because the body is attempting to heal itself, our goal is to augment its natural ability by relieving pressure to the nerves and promoting a flow of nutrients to the area. At Scorca Chiropractic Center, decompression therapy is a valuable tool in our arsenal that can help you expedite your rehabilitation. This is a non-surgical alternative, not to be confused with laminectomy or microdiscectomy, which are based on the same theory but require surgical intervention.

At our practice in Fremont, we use a traction table to provide decompression therapy that benefits the spine by gently stretching the injurious region and lengthening chronically tight muscles. By reducing the concentration of pressure in the affected disc, we promote retraction of the bulging material. This also allows for an enhanced flow of nutrients to a region that needs to heal.

Each herniated disc is explicitly different and therefore our treatment is unique to the individual. Because there is no panacea for herniated disc pain, we create a plan that integrates multiple therapies: chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, stretching and decompression each provide a different, effective treatment for a herniated disc. We also offer counseling on lifestyle habits and nutrition. Call our office at (510) 656-9077 if you have decided that a bulging disc is impinging on your quality of life. Together, we can effect change that frees you from pain and allows you to move on from your injury.

Dr. Francis Scorca, D.C.
