Many Doctors refer to Degenerative Discs as a “part of getting older.” That does not sit well with us. As Doctors of Chiropractic, we focus on the Spine; the functional integrity of the Spine. We are focused on improving the Quality of Life for people affected by Degenerative Discs. We are constantly learning, striving to improve—seeking ways to help make a real difference in the lives of those who need us. Especially, now. It seems over the past few years, more of the Radiology reports we get are showing more and more Degenerative Discs. Perhaps this is related to the change in lifestyle many have had with working at home, or just more sedentary living. Some people have had to drive more, out of State, to find work. Seated postures, over prolonged periods, and altered posture, can affect our Spines, including our Discs. Perhaps, the degeneration is contributing to more pain—and a cycle of not being able to move as well. Discs need movement. Spinal movement is even important in how our Brain functions. Nobel Laureate, Dr Roger Sperry is attributed as recognizing that 90% of the nutrition the Brain receives is related to the movement of the Spine. If we are dealing with Degenerative Discs, we may have a hard time moving, and our posture may suffer.

We felt the need to do something to help more people. As Doctors of Chiropractic, it is in our wheelhouse to address Spinal Disc Degeneration from a Chiropractic, physical, therapeutic standpoint. So, we made the most significant upgrade in equipment, with State of the Art technology, in the history of Darby Chiropractic. We established the Disc Decompression Center @Darby Chiropractic.
ERGOFLEX Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy for helping people with Degenerative, or Bulging Discs. Excellent for aiding in Spinal Posture. A specific treatment program personally developed for each person’s specific needs by Dr Darby; and personally administered by Dr Darby—not a technician. At Darby Chiropractic, you always see Dr Darby. Dr Darby also spends quality time with each patient explaining Disc Conditions, anatomy & physiology, and each person’s specific findings. Many people tell us that they have never had things explained to them so well before. And that they have never had a Doctor take the time to sit down with them and discuss their condition like at our office. That means the world to us. There is never a charge to talk to us. That is how we remember the way things used to be when you had a health concern, and went to a Doctor. And as Doctors of Chiropractic, that is how we are—we listen to you, answer your questions to the best of our ability, and explain things in great detail. We spend time with you. This great equipment has been very beneficial for many of our patients, and we are excited to offer it in our clinic. We will do our best to help you.

Zero Gravity Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy by Ergoflex—with lateral flexion capability. To our knowledge, no other machine has the ability for a patient to sit in a chair, and be gently reclined to allow the spine to flex side to side while being decompressed, (if that protocol is suitable for a person’s situation). 21 Different Protocols, with multiple tensile stress settings, from which Dr Darby can formulate a specific treatment plan for each person’s specific needs. Much more capability, and much different from old time static traction. Dynamic decompression therapy in a zero gravity position. A great compliment to our Flex /D Adjusting and therapy tables. The goal of Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy is to aid in rehydrating Degenerative Discs through a process of imbibition. Discs are the largest avascular structures in the body and require movement, or “pumping” to receive nutrition. The movement needs to be in specific planes of motion, and with proper tensile stress for optimal benefit. The discs, historically, have been referred to kind of like shock absorbers for the Spine, absorbing loads of compression. And this is a good analogy. But according to Dr. Paul Barlett of Cleveland University of Kansas City, musculotendinous structures absorb shock also. And perhaps, even more aptly, Discs could be compared to ball joints in a vehicle—assimilating loads, and aiding in proper movement, lending to stability of movement. In one study in the Journal, Spine, 1994 by Mimura et al, it was found that Disc Degeneration affects the multidirectional flexibility of the Spine. Under unequal loads, undue compression, or under constant compression, bulging and degeneration can occur. Spinal Decompression Therapy can help relieve compressive loads. The treatment is structural in nature, and can assist in improving posture, as back muscles will typically respond to the tension and motion. Some patients, including Dr Dave with his severely degenerative L5 disc and Spondylolisthesis, “feel taller” going through the treatment program. This may be due to rehydration of discs, or postural changes allowing for more upright posture, or both.

Finally, affordable Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy for bulging, or degenerative discs. And Decompression done the Darby way is done right—-gentle, smooth, and affordable. Right here in New Iberia. The Disc Decompression Center @Darby Chiropractic.


Zero Gravity Axial Spinal Disc Decompression with Bilateral and/or Unilateral Lateral Flexion.
