Leading The Way In
Bay Spine Center specializes in the treatment of moderate to severe back pain, neck pain, and sciatica due to spinal disc damage. This is accomplished through Disc Restoration Therapy.
Disc Restoration Therapy (DRT method) is a non-surgical therapy resolving back or neck pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries and damage. This is accomplished by creating a negative pressure within the herniated or degenerated spinal disc. The negative pressure removes the pain and creates an optimal healing environment within the spinal disc by drawing into it hydration and nutrition.
When a disk is compressed, the central disk material moves from its place in the disk, into the space occupied by the sensitive nerves. When the nerves become crowded, the patient experiences great pain and pressure. This pain is not alleviated by even the strongest of pain medications. Many times, the condition warrants the use of highly addictive medications, such as morphine to mask the pain long enough to give the patient some relief. Long term however, the risk for addiction increases, while the source of the pain is untreated.
Surgery attempts to treat the condition by shaving the part of the disk to create room for the material that is crowding the nerves. The DRT method with non-surgical spinal decompression eliminates the source of the pain, therefore eliminating the need for heavy medication, risky spine surgery, and the subsequent months of down time post surgery.
