The newly launched service focuses on removing pressure from the nervous system to treat back pain. The clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and is comprised of talented and friendly staff.
The clinic specializes in herniated disc treatment. The little pads that lie between the vertebrae are called the intervertebral discs and each has a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. The discs both join and separate the vertebrae. These discs serve as a cushions or shock absorbers, so that the bones do not make contact with each other when moving.
A herniated disc happens when the disc material ruptures to the point that the gel pushes outward. This can also cause pain and numbness due to the irritation of the nerves and can be very serious in some cases. Chiropractic care has been shown to prevent the advancement of herniations and provide relief from the associated pain.
The clinic can also treat a disc extrusion, which is the worst type of disc injury. This happens when the gel balloons extensively into the area outside the vertebrae or breaks off from the disc. This tends to result in considerable back pain and limitation of range of motion.

DeSalvo Chiropractic also provides spinal decompression treatment for back pain. This therapy involves stretching the spine using a traction table or similar motorized device. Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in order to create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. The treatment also creates a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc.
