Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression in San Diego, CA

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD) is an advanced form of spinal care. This innovative therapy is effective for treating and relieving low back pain, neck pain, and radiating arm and leg pain. In addition, spinal decompression has also been shown to help patients suffering with:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Bulging Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Spinal Stenosis

This non-surgical approach decompresses spinal discs and facet joints by drawing negative pressure into the discs.

Doctors, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals developed and researched this procedure. Our NSSD system is cleared by the FDA and has been clinically proven to provide pain relief and decrease symptoms associated with herniated and/or bulging discs.

Research studies have shown that the spinal disc injury is responsible for a significant number of neck/arm pain and lumbar/leg pain syndromes. Excessive compression forces from daily activities increases internal spinal disc pressure often resulting in spinal disc protrusion, bulging and herniation of disc material.

Spinal Decompression and NUCCA Care

Using non-surgical spinal decompression in conjunction with NUCCA care, a specialized form of chiropractic, accentuates the benefits of pain relief due to disc injury and degeneration. Spinal decompression can help heal damaged discs and reverses dystrophic changes in nerves. NSSD treats the functional and mechanical aspects of spinal disc pain through non-surgical decompression of spinal discs.

Our computer-controlled NSSD technology is designed to apply decompression to the patient’s spine without producing reflex paravertebral muscle contractions. Treatment is very comfortable, and many patients fall asleep during treatment.

By significantly reducing internal disc pressure, our technology promotes retraction of the herniation spinal disc material back to a normal physiologic position. This promotes fluid, oxygen and nutrient intake at the disc level and increases soft tissue healing. In addition to stimulating the repair of tissues, NSSD inhibits further leakage of the nucleus pulposus, the internal material of the spinal disc.

Recent research has shown that 86% of patients who completed decompression treatment reported immediate resolution of symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-therapy. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment (Gionis, Thomas MD; Groteke, Eric DC.
