Our doctors and staff regularly receive questions from both physicians and patients as to which cases Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression will best help. Proper patient selection is essential for favorable outcomes. At the St. Augustine Spine Center we will not treat patients we do not believe will benefit from this therapy.
Please read below to find out if you are experiencing any of the conditions this breakthrough treatment is known to help.
A condition wherein the spinal canal (the spaces through which the spinal cord runs) narrows and compresses the spinal cord, cauda equina, and/or sciatic nerve roots.
A symptom including pain that may be caused by general compression and/or irritation of one of five nerve roots that give rise to the sciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve itself. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, and/or various parts of the leg and foot.
A medical condition affecting the spine, in which a tear in the outer fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out. In most cases pressure is applied to nerve(s) causing chronic back pain.
A medical condition affecting the spine, in which a slight out-pouching of the disc is apparent without any significant herniation. The bulge in some cases can apply pressure to a nerve(s) causing back pain.

One-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain each year.
Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work. In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.
Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain and that’s just for the more easily identified costs.
Experts estimate that as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.
