We offer the latest and most advanced technology in the non-surgical treatment of neck and lower back symptoms such as sciatica, radiating pain, neck pain and headaches. Our office is committed to delivering a superior quality of care resulting in the addition of the FDA cleared spinal decompression therapy for the treatment of back pain due to herniated discs, bulging discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and post-surgical pain.

Previously, when disc issues presented to patients were given limited options. Those options included different physical or occupational therapies, restriction in activities, pain medications and when enough was enough, a referral for spinal surgery. While traditional chiropractic care helped many patients and cases over the years, sometimes surgery felt like the last hope for people…however…

That time of having a decreased quality of life due to those difficult aches and pains is a time of the past. With the development of Spinal Decompression Therapy, created by physicians and medical engineers, the ability to help with pains such as lower back, sciatica, disc issues, radiating pains and many more. Spinal Decompression Therapy is not only dramatically reducing aches and pains, but is also allowing patients to enjoy the lifestyle they always wanted.


Our sessions begin very easy and comfortable, with a non-invasive set up. Our Spinal Decompression Chair is extremely comfortable and simple to use. You will be fitted properly with either the under-arm rests or the head and neck attachment, depending on which area of the spine we are working on. Once set properly, the session will begin by lowering the chair, and gradually lengthening once set. During the lengthening process, you will start to notice a gentle stretch in your spine resulting in the decompression of your discs and relaxation of your muscles. This process is extremely relaxing and allows for great relief. Some patients say it is the best part of their week! While mild discomfort can occur if your case is extreme, that feeling will likely dissipate after a few sessions. If there is any discomfort during the session, we have added an additional safety feature, a patient safety switch, allowing them to terminate the session at any point. Each treatment lasts between 5-15 minutes depending. Individual patient results may vary.


Protocol for Spinal Decompression Therapy can vary based on the individual case, however, the average care recommendation is about 12-20 over a period of 8-12 weeks. This will be determined by the doctor after a review of the patient case and can result in more or less visits. Many patients experience immediate relief from their pain and other symptoms after only the first few sessions, with most patients reporting significant relief after completing the recommended care plan.
