What can Spinal Decompression Therapy accomplish?

  • Spinal Disc Tissue Healing
  • Spinal Disc Realignment
  • Breakdown Prevention
  • Pain Relief
  • Chronic Conditions Prevention

Bulging Disc is a pretty common condition usually originating from the expected and natural aging of spinal discs. But that’s not the only reason why a Bulging Disc can appear in your life. Heavy lifting, accidents, degenerative diseases and basic bad posture can also lead to it.

To put it simply, spinal discs are responsible for allowing our backs to rotate and move freely, absorbing impact, shocks and regular movement efforts with their outer rubbery surfaces and inner jelly-like cores. When these discs lose integrity due to natural aging, repetitive bad posture and movements or injuries, they become less resistant and tend to deform. Their inner soft cores start moving toward the exterior shells’ weakest points and can even break through and produce herniated discs.

All of this can produce mild, severe and chronic pain on your upper and lower spine, leading to your every extremity. Bulging Disc may go unnoticed during the early stages until it becomes a much more unbearable condition.


  • Mild to severe pain, numbness or tingling and tickling as well as weakness.
  • Lower back pain, radiating from buttocks to legs and feet.
  • Upper spine pain, radiating from neck, arms and hands.
  • Sometimes, Bulging Disc can remain unnoticed in an asymptomatic way.
  • Wide range of pain intensities.
  • Commonly located on the lower back.


Natural Spinal Aging:
Our bodies age with time. That’s inevitable. And with that process comes the wearing of our spinal discs. The aging process may lead to their deformation and deterioration, which makes them susceptible to hernia and bulging as their resistance drops and overall endurance lowers.

Sedentary activities and jobs may also lead to a Bulging Disc condition. Poor posture, sitting for long periods and even sleeping in a particular position may also lead to our spinal discs becoming damaged. Proper care of our lower back by supporting it in an appropriate way will prevent a premature Bulging Disc or Herniated Disc condition.

Daily Activities:
If your job requires you to engage in physical activities such as lifting heavy objects and carrying them in a repetitive way, then your spinal discs may be receiving too much to handle, and you may be pushing their resistance to the limit. This type of lifestyle can easily lead to a herniated or bulged disc.

Although bulged and herniated discs are most commonly the result of long term deterioration, a sudden shock produced by a car accident can also provoke these types of injuries, resulting in a disc getting herniated or bulged in an accelerated way.

Degenerative Diseases:
Many long-term conditions and diseases that erode our bodies slowly and steadily will most probably result in a bulged disc, as these areas are the most susceptible due to their watery inner cores and soft tissue outer edges.


Analyzing symptoms for an accurate diagnosis is key to treating any condition. In order to diagnose each particular situation accurately, professionals need to look at all the important factors that will lead them to a specific finding.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some important information that will help us be sure what’s affecting you:

*In 95% of cases, bulging discs in the lower back are located on the L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs, causing back and leg pain. This is also true with sciatica conditions.

*Lumbar disc herniation occurs 15 times more often than cervical, that’s why lower back pain and lower extremity pain is a very common symptom in Bulged Disc situations.

*Symptoms of bulged disc, mainly in the lower back area, are highly common between the ages of 30 and 50 years.

*This condition appears twice as often in men than in women.

*Discs located at the thoracic part of our backs are responsible for just 1-2% of herniated disc cases.

How To Diagnose Bulging Disc

After scheduling a consultation with our award winning team in the Poconos, we’ll execute a few simple tests to help us determine what’s affecting you and if it’s actually related to a Bulging Disc condition. Here are some of the exercises we’ll do to further understand your specific case:

  • Straight Leg Raise Test: This examination is meant to be executed on patients under the age of 35 and will help us quickly determine if there’s a back injury present.
  • Sensory Loss Test: As we mentioned earlier, a Bulged Disc can cause the loss of sensitivity in and around affected areas.
  • Muscle Weakness Test
  • Reflex Test on Various Locations
  • X-Rays and CT scans.

How to recover from a bulging disc:
Chiropractic Care
Dr. Laubach’s expertise in chiropractic techniques will ease your pain and get you back to your normal life. With regular chiropractic adjustments and professional observation, you will finally get the back pain relief you have been looking for. Our licensed professionals can improve your health and wellness by performing chiropractic therapy tailored specifically to your individual needs after making a thorough evaluation of your particular case.
Massage Therapy
Our award winning masseuse, Johanna M. Barnes, will take care of your upper and lower back pain with her deep understanding, knowledge and experience in Gua Sha, Neuromuscular Therapy and Trigger Point Therapy. Achieving anti-inflammatory responses on the affected discs will improve mobility, reduce pain, and promote healing for the prevention of long term chronic effects.
Physical Therapy
A combination of strategic stretching and strength gaining exercises will help your spine recover its freedom of movement and also contribute to the decompression therapy. This treatment involves lying down on your back while your knees are elevated with a bolster underneath for comfort. A harness will be attached to your chest and lower back, executing slight pulls and releases. This will cause your spine to gradually elongate, resulting in decompression of the discs and nerves.
