Treatment for Disc Pain
At Susquehanna Spine & Rehab we recommend Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, a revolutionary technology, to treat disc injuries in the neck and back.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is very safe and utilizes FDA cleared equipment.
How does it work?
- Applies traction forces to vertebra in a precise and graduated manner
- Gently separates the vertebrae from each other
- Creates a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting.
- This “vacuum effect” may reverse the herniated or bulging disc
- Promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside enabling the damaged disc fibers to begin to heal.
How long does treatment take?
- Each visit is approximately 15-30 min
- The healing happens microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks, the results are quite dramatic
Does the treatment hurt?
- No the therapy is quite gentle
- The table to padded and comfortable
- Many patients fall asleep

Patient testimonials Spinal Decompression:
I Had Two Painful Bulging Discs
“As a professional major league pitching coach, I know what pain is. When I injured my back working out I couldn’t do a thing. I got chiropractic care and cortisone shots in my back. They didn’t do much at all. Spinal Decompression treatment worked great, it relieved me of most of my pain. I can workout and pitch. Most of all I’m good enough to get back to my team and hope to have a great season. I recommended Spinal Decompression treatment to all the players on the team who have back pain.”
San Diego Padres
“I was scheduled for surgery, but luckily I found this decompression therapy. After my treatment, I played 18 holes of golf and hiked 12 miles in one weekend. Without it, I would have been at home on my couch in pain.”
“I couldn’t walk, sleep, sit, or drive. I had no quality time with my family and I felt less of myself. Now I feel like a new man, I have my confidence and self esteem back. Thanks to Spinal Decompression I am pain free.”
“I was in severe pain, with a sharp burning sensation in my low back. I feel so much better. I am off pain medications and am able to resume my old life. I was told surgery would be my only hope, but instead it was Spinal Decompression.”
I Had Prior Surgery But My Pain Came Back
“I injured my back originally in 1986. I had back surgery in 1990. The pain began to come back gradually. I didn’t want to go through another surgery if I could avoid it. My doctor sent me to physical therapy and exercise, which made me worse. I had several spinal injections which only gave me very short term relief. By this time I was in constant pain. MRI of my lower back showed I had degenerative and bulging discs. My friend recommended I try Spinal Decompression. I’m so glad that I did. Now I feel only minor pain on occasion. Spinal Decompression has allowed me to get back to walking and other things I couldn’t do before. Before anyone has surgery I would tell them to try Spinal Decompression.”
I Didn’t Want More Surgery
My back gave me constant pain for 3 years. I had three herniated and degenerative discs in my low back. Everything I did caused me pain. I tried epidurals, pain management even IDET surgery. I was thinking of getting another surgery. I was also concerned about all the drugs I was taking to control my pain. Within a few visits I began to notice improvement, over the course of treatment my back got better and better. Presently I’m much better, I can exercise and do many things I couldn’t do before Spinal Decompression treatment. This is a great alternative to surgery.
