Managing Disc Pain in Stuart, FL

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

If you have lower back pain that keeps coming back, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, it could be an indicator that you have a slipped disc.

Known as a herniated disc, the pain caused by this condition can be severe and in some cases disabling.

Pain Triggered By a Herniated Disc.

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. But in many cases, symptoms will die down in 6 weeks or less. This holds true in about 90% of herniated disc occurrences.

If your disc pain lasts longer than 6 weeks, or keeps coming back over a period of several months or years, this can be an indication that it may not go away on its own. Other treatment options, including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, should then be thought about.

What Brings About Discs to Slip?

Your spine is made up of a chain of bones known as the vertebrae. The front section of each individual vertebrae is called the vertebral body. Between each vertebrae are soft spinal discs that have a hard, multilayered casing and a gel-like center, called the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what make it possible for the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body back and forth. Our discs also soak up jolts that are transferred to the spine while jumping or running, for example,.

It means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it when you have a slipped disc. There are three types of slipped discs:.

  • Prolapsed Disc – This means the disc is bulging out between the vertebrae, but the disc’s outermost layer is still undamaged.
  • Extruding Disc – This means there is a rip in the outer layer of the spinal disc, which is causing the spinal disc tissue to leak out. The tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration – This is one of the most serious kind of slipped disk. In this particular instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly connected to the disc.

While all three types of herniated discs can be extremely painful, most people suffering from a slipped disc can receive relief through gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

If you are experiencing recurrent disc pain and you believe you may have a slipped disc, you should absolutely consider seeking treatment from one of our medical professionals.

By gently manipulating the spine to make sure that it returns to its normal state, our team of spinal disc doctors can help relieve the pressure caused by your slipped disc and provide instant relief to your back pain.

Dr Frank Giampietro has been my chiropractor for about 15 years and I continue to recommend him. I have always found that the practitioners and staff there are professional and patient-centered.

I'm so grateful that I found this place. I walked in there with 6 herniations in my neck and a pinch nerve. The pinched nerve kept me up all night! The pain was so bad! I couldn't hug or play catch with my 7 and 8 year old boys. It was a very depressing time in my life. Dr. Giampietro was great! He said it was all backed by science and I will be 80% or better in 10 weeks. I can finally play with my kids again, sleep on my left side without it going numb, and finish a full days work with no pain. Thank you so much!

Great experience at this office! Dr. Calderone was fantastic. He took me right at my scheduled appointment time, thoroughly explained my diagnosis, and offered me a variety of treatment options (which they have plenty of). Highly recommend!

Dr. Barnhill is fantastic. I went in with a painful stiff neck - I could barely turn my head and sleep was impaired. Four visits later. I am pain free and have a full range of motion. The office is very well run, has very good covid protocols and you are in and out quickly. They do not try to sell you on a huge, expensive program of care like other chiropractic offices I have been to - there is no high pressure sales pitch - just care.Bravo Performance Health & Chiropractic!

Dr. Giampietro is awesome. My daughter has had a sports injury in her bicep for a year now. Nobody could figure out why whenever she trained, her bicep would hurt. After a couple of minutes of evaluation he knew the issue. Scar tissue! after the first treatment of adjustments, massage and laser, she could not believe the difference. Thanks doc for your professionalism, knowledge and caring to figure out what was going on with her. At 19, she weight trains hard and is in college for dietitian and sports nutrition. This was really putting a damper on her workouts and confidence and motivation. I Highly recommend Dr. Giamietro.

Dr. Kurt Barnhill has been able to help my 83 year old mother with her back & leg pain, despite her numerous health problems including a steel plate in her leg. He's also very sensitive to her pain & is extra careful when working with her. Thank you so much. Definitely recommended.
