Spinal decompression is a technique that is used to alleviate pain of people suffering from conditions like disc bulge, sciatica, disc herniation, etc. Spinal decompression helps to relieve pressure on one or many pinched nerves. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which is quite effective for certain kinds of back pain. Herniated disc is the most common spinal condition that is treated with spinal decompression technique. It is caused by spinal compression which causes disc herniations to expand which puts pressure on surrounding spinal nerve roots. Decompression technique is used to take the pressure of the damaged discs.
Kathryn G, from Lima, NY, said, ?I am a sixty year old nurse who had back problems on and off for twenty years. I have tried physical therapy twice, and have seen a chiropractor on a regular basis for at least fifteen years.Two years ago an MRI revealed that I have 2 disc bulges. (Between the 4th and 5th and L5-S1) and my pain relief was minimal from treatments. After reading an article about Spinal Decompression, I met with Dr. Stephen Divito, D.C. and decided that Spinal Decompression would be an option for me. Although I probably have had more treatments than the average patient (Due to more disc involvement) I can see a definite improvement in my back pain. I'm currently doing back strengthening exercises as well as my home exercises and continue to make progress. Thanks to Dr. Divito, DC and Beth for all their help and encouragement.?]

Tracy G had tried chiropractic services of Stephen Divito D.C., and this is what she had to say, ?I hurt my back about 1 ? years ago- first I thought it would heal on its own then I tried Physical therapy, light work duty and still no improvement. Then I tried cortisone shots - the first two worked, but the side effects were terrible. Then they gave me two more shots and they did not work at all. An MRI showed a disc herniation and I was told a bone fusion surgery was my only option. I saw an ad for some "Space Age Technology" back treatment while vacationing in Florida. When I got home I searched the Internet and found Dr. Divito, DC. It took a couple of meetings and the viewing of my MRI and I was willing to try anything to avoid surgery. Once I started and they got the settings right for me, I improved immediately and made daily improvements. I went back to sleeping normally again, started to heal quickly. I am back to full speed at work that sometimes involves driving 1000 miles weekly and I do that with no pain or stiffness. I would highly recommend it to anyone with a back problem. I can't wait to get back to my hockey and softball teams.?
