A Body at War…
Each of us is constantly in a battle…with gravity! A frequent casualty is the soft disc material that separates each spinal bone. Pressure from our weight, trauma from an accident and other causes can increase the pressure on a weakened disc. In many cases, the soft pulpy center of the disc can escape. That is what is commonly known as a Herniated Disc (also referred to as a Bulging Disc or Slipped Disc) and as you may well know…That can be quite painful.
When that does occur, it may be accompanied by the following:
- Sharp pain
- Dull pain/ache
- Burning sensation
These are often indicators of the pinching of a nerve or bundle of nerves due to a herniated disc, bulging disc (sometimes called a “slipped disc”), stenosis, facet syndrome, or degenerative disc disease. When this happens, the symptoms may be felt locally (in the back or neck), and/or they may radiate in to the extremities (arms, hands, legs or feet).
Pain that radiates in to the legs is most commonly attributed to a “pinching” of the Sciatic Nerve and is often referred to as Sciatica.
Not too long ago, the treatments available to Peoria, Phoenix and Glendale area residents suffering with these ailments was limited to injections, pain killers or surgery.
Most people recognize that treatments with medications simply masked the pain…and that was often temporary at best with a diminishing effect over time. This predicated that many people would resign to having surgery on their back or neck. Aside from the dangers associated with this surgery (and other invasive surgeries), was the fact that the outcomes were such that the medical community created a new name for those patients who suffered from poor surgical results: “Failed Back Syndrome”.
An Effective, Conservative Alternative…
Specially designed equipment is utilized to conservatively treat patients with disc-related problems.
Fortunately, another treatment option is now available for Peoria, Phoenix and Glendale residents. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression provides hope for people suffering from these ailments. The Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression equipment was developed by doctors and engineers specifically to treat back and neck pain, Sciatica and extremity pain – due to nerve interference or pressure from herniated or bulging discs, stenosis, facet syndrome, or degenerative disc disease. The Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression equipment used for this treatment has been shown to create negative pressure in the intradiscal space (the space between the vertebrae), which can in effect “suck” the disc material back in place; relieving the pressure on the nerve(s).
We are proud to state that Dr. Tiffany Harris was one of the first doctors in the Phoenix-area to utilize Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression to treat both Lumbar (low back) and Cervical (neck) patients. Over the past several years, she has helped many people find relief from their pain…
even those with failed back syndrome.

“I would not get my treatments from anyone else but Dr. Harris and her great staff”
Thanks to Dr. Harris and her treatments, my lower back is pain free. For several years, I suffered from lower back pain, and sciatic nerve pain that would travel down my leg. I could not stand, lay or sit for any length of time without being in excruciating pain. I drive twenty-six miles, one way, to work and back every day. By the time I would get off work, or would arrive home, I could barely get out of my car. I tried epidural and facet joint injections which gave me only slight relief and only for a week or so. The pain was so intense I became less and less able to concentrate and perform my job. Then I discovered Dr. Harris and her spinal decompression treatment. Now my back is pain free. I get out of bed in the morning without thinking about how painful it’s going to be just to stand up. I can stand, lay and sit for as long as I want, and not have to worry about how much it’s going to hurt to try to walk or stand up. Dr. Harris and her staff are the best. They genuinely care about their patients. I feel more like a friend or family member, than a patient when I go into the office. I highly recommend their treatment program for anyone who is suffering from lower back pain. Moreover, I would not get my treatments from anyone else but Dr. Harris and her great staff.

“This is the real thing… Do it for yourself. Do it for the people who love you!”
For six years I’ve been fighting Degenerative Disc Disease and Osteoarthritis. The pain from the herniated and bulging discs was almost unbearable. Along with that came a general feeling of weakness and hopelessness. I found myself caught in a revolving door of MRI’s, pain pills, epidurals, etc. Then I heard about non-surgical spinal decompression. I’ve had six treatments. I haven’t felt better in six years! I have never been treated with so much care and diligence. I know I’m on the right path. This is the real thing! Dr. Harris and her entire staff truly care about healing. My pain is significantly improved, my balance has returned, and my body is waking up from nerve impingement. This treatment is giving me the opportunity to get back to living my life! That’s priceless. Do it. Do it for yourself. Do it for the people who love you!

“My neck feels better than ever”
Ten years ago I had a herniated disc in my neck. The pain was unbearable. I took lots of pain medication, spent over 2 ½ hours of surgery in the hospital, and stayed overnight. That was followed by two months of recovery at home with more pain medication…needless to say I was not able to work for close to three months. This past February as I was lifting a parcel, I went to set the package down and I felt my neck go ‘crack’, followed shortly by the strong sensation of pins and needles in my left arm. I was scared, especially after already having had surgery on my neck. This time I had a bulging disc in my neck. I was fortunate to get to Dr. Tiffany Harris through a referral. Thank God for spinal decompression, Dr. Harris and her staff. Words cannot express how wonderful they treated me. After six weeks of treatment, I am pain free. My neck feels better than ever.
Thank you so much to all of you,

“No surgery and no drugs and I still can’t believe how good I feel!”
The pain in my lower back was extreme. I thought I would have to take pain medication for the rest of my life. All my activities were put on hold including the one I love, golf. My pain level on a scale of 10 was a constant 10. I had trouble sleeping and was advised to have surgery to correct my problem. I noticed an advertisement for a new treatment with non-surgical decompression. I called Dr. Harris and scheduled an appointment. With the personal attention given by Dr. Harris’ staff, I began a rapid recovery. After only a few sessions the pain started to subside. I stopped taking pain medication and was on my way back to a normal lifestyle. I finished my spinal decompression treatments and went directly into their physical therapy program. I’ve now resumed my workouts and of course, golfing. My golf has improved because I no longer worry about hurting my back. No surgery and no drugs and I still can’t believe how good I feel! I can’t begin to thank Dr. Harris and her staff enough.

“I cannot believe I’m free of the back pain I’ve suffered since 1970!”
I’ve finished my treatment program and I can walk again without pain, without limping and without my cane. I’m so excited about how much I’ve improved and not having to worry about surgery, and having tried the epidurals, therapy, and all kinds of pain medicines. I just wish more of you who are suffering would look into this program and expect a miracle.
Thank you, thank you, Dr. Harris!

“I never felt better in my life.”
Hi, my name is Fernanda. For the last nine years I had suffered so much with back pain. Just getting out of bed was a job, until I read about non-surgical spinal decompression. When I started I had my doubts, but after five treatments I felt better. If you have back problems, I’m telling you go for the treatment. I never felt better in my life. I can do anything from dancing and walking to working with no pain.
Thank you Dr. Harris and your staff as well.

“I have only had two treatments and cannot believe the relief that I have had”
Fourteen years ago, I had to have disc surgery on my low back; there was no other option at the time. Approximately 18 months ago I started to have some low back issues and as time went on the pain became severe, since I am unable to take any muscle relaxants or pain pills my options are very limited. In the past 6-9 months, my limitations have become more than I feel a 46 year old should have. The past 30-45 days I have been unable to sit comfortably at my desk, walk at times, or even lie down because the pain would be excruciating. I have only had two treatments and cannot believe the relief that I have had. I am looking forward to the completion of this program so I will be able to not only work pain free but also live my life without pain. What a concept, one I was beginning to think would never happen again. Dr. Harris and her staff have been wonderful they really do take you by the hand and guide you through the process.

“After only four treatments my pain was completely gone!”
The treatment has taken away my back pain and the pain running down my leg due to a pinched Sciatic nerve. Before coming in for treatment, I could walk and stand only for very short distances and periods of time. I could sit and find relief; however, I was in even more pain and finally had to stand up. After only four treatments my pain was completely gone and I could walk normal again. I have been able to resume my rigorous work schedule without any interruptions. Continuous treatments have prevented any relapse of the pain. Not only has the treatments been effective, the staff is genuinely concerned with your well-being and very professional. I would highly recommend their program for anyone having back or sciatic nerve problems.

“Thank you to Dr. Harris and all of her staff …for giving my pain free life back”
After many years of neck pain and constant headaches, I found an ad for non-surgical spinal decompression. After doing some research, I decided to go for the consultation with Dr. Harris. My wife and I discussed the pros and cons of the procedure and decided to give it a try. I started the sessions in March and noticed that the pain in my neck and the headaches were easing after only a few sessions. I completed the program in April and I can now say that I feel much better today than I have in many years. Today I am back to riding my Harley and again enjoying the freedom of the open road and a pain free neck.I have to say thank you to Dr. Harris and all of her staff for making me feel comfortable during the sessions and for giving my pain free life back.
