At The Roseville Disc Center in Roseville California we have been treating patients with disc bulges, disc herniations and degenerative discs as well as severe sciatic pain for over 12 years using non-surgical decompression.
Over those years we have seen many, many patients pain reduced or eliminated by the use of this gentle and effective computer driven technology. Compared to surgery for discogenic pain in the neck and lumbar spine, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment in Sacramento is not only much safer and a fraction of the cost compared to surgery, but the patient outcomes measured in reduction and frequency of pain and disfunction (both short term and long term!) have been nothing short of amazing.
Most patients report that by the end of their 2 to 2 ½ month treatment that they are at least 70% improved with absolutely no negative side effects. Not only is the local pain in their spine reduced but also is associated radiating pain like sciatica or arm pain also reduced.
But the question sometimes remains, does the bulge and herniation actually reduce in size? Or better stated, “Does non-surgical spinal decompression actually fix the discs?”
For patients suffering from lower back pain, sciatica, or neck pain in the Sacramento California region, the answer is a resounding yes! Non-surgical Spinal Decompression reduces the size of disc bulges and herniations.
Because of the expense of MRIs most patients and insurance companies don’t want to do follow up MRIs. But every so often we have a patient who has had a very severe injury to the disc and both the patient, and their doctors (at The Roseville Disc Center, and their primary doctors) want to see how the disc looks.
Below is a recent patient of ours whose doctor ordered a follow up MRI. As they say “pictures are worth a thousand words”
Before: Huge L4 Disc Herniation
After: Substantial reduction in the size of L4 disc, and the patient is 70 to 80% improved!
