Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive and cost effective treatment for disc problems in the back and neck. Those who suffer with back and neck pain commonly experience numbness, tingling, weakness, pain and diminished function in the legs or arms. Such extremity symptoms often occur when the central jelly-like material inside a spinal disc breaks through the protective outer rings of the disc itself.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is the utilization of computerized, traction-like technology which creates a negative pressure inside the damaged disc. As this technique is applied, the change in disc pressure draws the disc material that has moved out of the disc center back inside the disc which takes the pressure off the nerves. Subsequently, correction of back and leg as well as neck and arm pain occurs. Further, much needed healing of the disc by further stimulating increased blood flow, oxygenation and nutrient exchange in the disc itself.
At Terlep chiropractic, we incorporate the use of one of the most sophisticated systems available to provide this highly effective type of care…the SpineMed Decompression System from CERT Health Sciences. As an effective alternative to spinal surgery, we believe this form of spinal decompression therapy to be the most advanced, non-surgical and pain free alternative.
Here’s what other doctors are saying about Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy:
“There is a place for surgery, but definitely not at the front line. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy should be a front-line treatment for chronic back pain patients suffering from bulging, herniated, or degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome.
As a surgeon, I only want to do surgery when I absolutely have to. Spinal Decompression Therapy gives my patients a more conservative treatment option that can eliminate the need for surgery altogether, and that’s a very good thing.
Spinal Decompression Therapy also gives me a treatment option for those patients who have had surgery and have a relapse or experience a return of pain following surgery. It allows me to offer patients a key, non-surgical weapon in the war on back pain.”

“As an interventional pain physician, I feel that Spinal Decompression Therapy has filled a void in our continuum of treatment for those patients suffering from back and neck pain associated with disc pathology. The majority of the other procedure I perform, such as injections and nerve blocks, treat the pain due to tissue and nerve irritation, which only reduce the patients’ pain. My enthusiasm for Spinal decompression Therapy stems from the fact that it it the only therapy that scientifically attempts to heal and “rejuvenate” the discs. My personal experience with this non-invasive therapy is that qualified patients will show improvement within the first few treatments.”

“Neurologists like myself have long known that we should do everything possible to help our patients avoid back surgery. Now with Spinal decompression Therapy we finally have a very effective way to treat back pain without surgery. The vast majority of even our worst cases experience significant, long-lasting relief if they complete the entire treatment regimen. Anyone who says this is experimental doesn’t know what they’re talking about.”
Orlando Maldonado MD -Bradenton, FL
“We have treated thousands of patients who have experienced long term, pain free healing because of decompression therapy. With non-surgical decompression we offer real modification of the patient’s disc disease processes and rehabilitation of the neuropathic and mechanical symptoms, rather than just offering palliative care. I use it for myself and it is worth its weight in gold.”
