Dealing with Disc Pain in Winter Park, FL

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

If you have lower back pain that keeps recurring, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, it could be an indication that you have a slipped disc.
Also known as a herniated disc, the pain triggered by this condition can be extreme and in some cases debilitating.

Pain Brought On By a Herniated Disc.

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. In some cases, symptoms will go away in 6 weeks or less. This is the case in about 90% of herniated disc cases.

If your disc pain lasts longer than 6 weeks, or keeps recurring over a period of several months or years, this could be a sign that it may not go away by itself. 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 called the vertebrae. The front part 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, known as the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what allow the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body from side to side. Our discs also soak up impacts that are transferred to the spine while running or jumping, for example,.

When you have a slipped disc, it means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it. 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 intact.
  • 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. But 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 attached 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 resumes its normal state, our team of spinal disc experts can help relieve the pressure caused by your slipped disc and provide instant relief to your back pain.

Contact us today for your free consultation if you or somebody you know is suffering from disc pain as the result of a slipped disc. Our expert spinal disc practitioners can tell you if gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is a good option for treating your pain.

Went in today for a free consultation to address some issues I've been experiencing for quite awhile. This was the first time I've ever visited the office but they treated me as if I had been going... there for years. They were very receptive and thorough to all my concerns and very caring and understanding. As I was leaving and I thanked the Dr for his time, another patient was telling me how great of a place it is, and I definitely felt that vibe. I actually felt like my issues were important to them, and that they sincerely want to help. I couldn't help but listen to the staff members interactions with other patients while I was waiting and I could see that they're important and valuable to everyone that works there. Like longtime friends looking out for one another. I look forward to returning for further treatment. 😃read more

I've been a patient of Dr. Roffler's since the mid 1980's. Injured in a pedestrian/automobile accident, I suffered from severe migraines and constant upper back/neck pain. With constant adjustments... and continued care, my pain has been lowered significantly over the years. There is no doubt in my mind that without the expertise of Dr. Roffler & his staff, that I would be near crippled at this point in my life. I appreciate the positive attitude that Dr. Roffler always has and his entire approach toward spine & health care. Thanks Dr, Roffler & staff!read more

In issues with the back, there are dozens of solutions and just as many great doctors trying to help. With issues going back forty years due to sports injuries, I have tried a dozen cures. Many... helped. Some for a few weeks, some for a few months, but always the next cycle was a step lower. Walking was limited to a few feet with a cane.Desperate for a solution other than back surgery I found decompression. After learning more about Disc Centers, I realized they were different from other decompressions I had tried. The method they used provided a more targeted approach to the pressure. The application mechanics were variable pressure and releases, which were also different. This worked much better.After half my sessions, I was able to walk quite a distance without pain for the first time in two years. Following both the schedule, taking care not to reverse gains with heavy lifting, and taking the recommended nutrients seemed to help my results.After a dozen other physical therapies, chiropractors, and other solutions, decompression with Disc Centers of America was a huge find. If you need a huge find to help you this may be it for you also.read more

I would highly recommend the Disc Centers of America in Winter Park. First, my husband went there on crutches and walked out with no crutches after completing his recommended sessions. After my... husbands friend went through physical therapy with not much change, he went to my husbands Doctor. He loves coming back to the Disc Center for his decompression because he is playing golf again. After watching people come in to the office and seeing the transformation they went through, while I was waiting for my husband, I felt very confident they could take care of my back problems. Sure enough they did X-rays the day I went in and they recommended a mri to show exactly what was happening on my spine. The mri was expedited so I could keep my appointment today. The people there are so nice, knowledgeable and willing to personally see you through the pain you have until you receive what your body needs to be pain free. If you are thinking about decompression, my husband, his friend and I would highly recommend you go see them.read more

After many frustrated attempts to treat my low back pain, I arrived at this location in March 2023. Before my consultation, on the phone, Audrey was already concerned about my pain and recommended... that I put ice.Once I arrived there, Kay registered all my medical history. Dr. Roffler, who is deeply knowledgeable in my problem, tried to understand the patterns of my pain and listened to me attentively. After the RX, which is in the office, he ordered an MRI. Audrey, from the front desk, very attentive, promptly scheduled the MRI and took care to accommodate me in a place that assists patients with claustrophobia. The best MRI clinic I've been to today. With my result ready, a herniated disc and a bulging disc were identified by Dr. Roffler, who laid out a treatment plan.Since then, I've followed my treatment with decompressions, ice, supplements and a support belt. Today, 4 months later, my recovery is already 80% better. Every time I needed to report something different that I noticed in my back, I was always promptly attended.This is not the kind of place where you suffer frivolous medical invalidation or minimization of your pain. This is not any mechanized clinic where you are just a number. Even though they have a lot of patients, they treat you as family. Everything is carefully investigated. My pain that radiated to the leg and prevented me from walking no longer occurs and I am able to exercise.Moreover, everything is recorded, documented and carefully evaluated by a team of extremely competent women who work in a very organized way. Among the various tasks they perform, Audrey and Shirley take care of their schedule and all administrative matters. Kay carefully records every improvement you have beyond your back pain history, and Angie is the professional who accomodate us on the machine, know our protocol and even offers us a blanket. All are kind, loving, proactive. In addition to the long hours of work during the week, they spend long hours in advanced training on the weekends.In conclusion, this place goes far beyond ethics and professional competence. Disc Centers os America is truly committed to healing. As person that already was submitted to a back surgery because this treatment was not available in my country, I am very grateful. Thank you for everything.read more

Thankfully I was told about decompression... therapy and it truly has helped. All staff members make you feel welcome and genuinely care about your wellbeing. It never feels like coming to a doctor’s office, rather it feels like walking into a community of compassion.read more

As a physician I am critical of other professionals and wary of chiropractors. There has been an inconsistency in the past in training and services.I have waited to write this until I have had... significant experience.Now that I have observed Dr. Roffler and his staff for over 2 months, it is evident that he is a unique, skilled, and compassionate specialist. His initial assessment determined if treatment or additional studies are required. He has standard chiropractic techniques in addition to the Disc decompression technology. This seems to be exactly as advertised. Some of the other patients were sent by surgeons in an attempt to delay or prevent the need for an operation. Either way, an opinion from Dr. Roffler will be enlightening.read more
