Is disc pain interrupting your daily activities? Do you feel like nothing is working to relieve the pain? Non-surgical disc pain treatment at Autera Health Center can help you get back to doing the things that matter most to you. Dr. Matt Autera and Dr. Tiffany Terry have extensive experience in treating all types of back pain. Their non-invasive treatments for disc pain can relieve your pain without surgery.

What causes disc pain?

The discs are the cushions between the vertebrae in your spine. They act as shock absorbers and allow for movement. When you experience disc pain, it is often due to disc degeneration or disc bulging. You may experience pain, numbness, or tingling in your neck, back, or even your arms and legs. 

Disc degeneration is a condition associated with age and wear and tear on your spine. It is characterized by the thinning and drying out of the disc. This can lead to pain and stiffness in the neck or back. Disc bulging, also called a herniated disc, is when the disc swells beyond its normal boundaries. The disc can then press on spinal nerves, causing pain. 

At Autera Health Center, our doctors do a thorough examination to determine the cause of disc pain and establish the best treatment course.

How does spinal decompression therapy relieve disc pain?

Non-surgical disc pain treatment often includes spinal decompression therapy, a non-invasive treatment that uses gentle stretching and pulling to relieve pressure in the spine. Spinal decompression therapy is very effective in reducing disc pain. 

At Autera Health Center, our doctors use VAX-D spinal decompression therapy. A 1994 study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery indicated significant decompression with the VAX-D therapy system, and subsequent studies have also shown its effectiveness. Each treatment lasts about 35-45 minutes, and many patients experience relief during their VAX-D sessions.
