SRS Therapy
Do you suffer from AGONIZING SPINAL DISC FAILURE? How about Back Pain? Numbness? Tingling?
ANNOUNCING The Spine Reconditioning System or SRS THERAPY at Health Star Chiropractic (formerly Sturbridge Chiropractic).
We use a comprehensive approach to treating back pain as an alternative to surgery. It's called Spine Reconditioning System or SRS Therapy. The focus of SRS Therapy is to combine modern and traditional technologies in back pain treatment into one comprehensive back therapy system. This allows us to treat the underlying causes of back pain.not just the symptoms. This is a proven alternative to other therapies and surgery. A recent survey revealed that 98% of our patients rated their visit to our office as either Excellent or Very Good. In fact 100% of the respondents said they would refer their friends or family to us. The first step is designed to repair the damage to the spinal disc without invasive, risky surgery. The second step is designed to strengthen and stabilize the muscles and joints surrounding the spine. SRS Therapy is performed over a series of treatments. Treatment typically includes disc decompression therapy, spinal manipulation and adjunctive therapies. Patients remain fully clothed while these relaxing procedures are performed. In fact, it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during treatment.
SLIPPED DISC?
Believe it or not, there is no such thing as a slipped disc, though most people use the expression when referring to spinal disc problems. Even doctors occasionally refer to agonizing disc failure as slipped disc, blown disc, and the like.

The correct scientific term is herniated nucleus pulposus. But patients prefer to say slipped disc, so why not?

In order to understand what happens in so-called slipped disc conditions, let's take a look at what a spinal disc is.
SPINAL DISCS
The bones of the spine (vertebrae) are separated and cushioned from one another by highly-specialized tissues called discs, shaped something like rubber washers and averaging about one-half inch thick.
HEALTHY DISCS ARE VITAL
The importance of discs to one's well being can hardly be exaggerated. They keep the vertebrae from grinding on one another and at the same time help form notches between vertebrae so that spinal nerves can exit, fan out, and serve all areas, organs, and parts of the body with vital nerve energy. Also, spinal tension caused by the rubbery discs helps keep the spinal ligaments taut and thus stabilizes as it protects the delicate spinal cord.

The disc's structure----a tough outer wall encasing a rubbery, spongy core---allows them to compress repeatedly while recovering their shape instantly (like a sponge) as they help the spine absorb the shocks, knocks, bumps, twists, and bends encountered in everyday living.
HERE COMES THE PAIN
Normally, discs perform their duties perfectly for a lifetime, but sometimes they herniate (protrude) and thereby press, pinch, irritate, or otherwise compromise adjacent spinal nerves. This often causes great pain, sometimes so intense it disables its victim.
MAJOR CAUSES OF A "SLIPPED" DISC
Some disc protrusions are caused by injury to the spine. Some result by occupational or recreational stresses over a long time. Even repeated sitting or standing in a stressful way can bring on disc problems.

Then there are disc problems which develop slowly through disc degeneration and thinning, a process so gradual over the years it goes unnoticed until pain and other symptoms demand attention.
