Our website will give you the complete facts about Spinal Decompression Therapy including clinic trials that support its effectiveness.

And we will also tell you the approximate treatment cost.  We do that so you will be better able to make an informed decision about what you should do for your condition and because our fees are a fraction of what some other clinics charge.

If you need any additional information, please call our office at

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

 What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

 

 Spinal decompression therapy is FDA cleared and has a high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs...even after failed surgery.  It is a non-surgical, traction based therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.

 

 

  How does this negative pressure affect an injured disc?

 

During spinal decompression therapy, a negative pressure is created within the disc.  Because of that negative pressure, disc material that has protruded or herniated can be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, and permit healing to occur.

 

 

 What system is used for this purpose?

 

After a significant amount of research, our office chose the Triton®DTS system manufactured by the Chattanooga Group, the premier manufacturer of physical medicine equipment.  More importantly, we have the brand new 2011 computerized head which is the most sophisticated and technologically advanced unit in the world. No office - and we do mean NO OFFICE - has a more "state of the art" spinal decompression system. 

In fact, the new Triton® head is so revolutionary that it won the Australian Design Award in the "Medical and Scientific" category. We also selected the Triton®DTS systems due to its ability to treat discs in both the neck and the low back.  We have THREE systems in our office to minimize your wait time!

Dr. Robin has gone the extra mile in education and training to become a “Certified Practioner” of Spinal Decompression Therapy.  Check to make sure your doctor is thoroughly trained on the proper use and techniques required to achieve the best outcome in your treatment using Spinal Decompression Therapy.  Don’t entrust your health to someone trained by a salesman!

How is Spinal Decompression Therapy different from regular traction?

 

Doctor skill combined with the award winning Triton® computer is the key. It controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle guarding that is typical in conventional traction devices. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction allows for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc rehydration.
Proper assessment using our on site state of the art digital x-ray, correct positioning and the use of preprogrammed patterns of distraction and relaxation may reduce disc pressure allowing necessary nutrients to enliven and accelerate disc healing.

 

 

What else sets us apart? Laser Enhanced Spinal Decompressive Therapy!

Class IV Laser Therapy is an amazing FDA cleared therapy that often exceeds most peoples expectations.  When used together and over a consistent treatment plan, Laser Enhanced Spinal Decompression can provide a safe, non-invasive treatment to disc disorders that can be an alternative to medication, injections, and surgery.  Conditions that have been found to provide relief are degenerative disc disease, herniated/bulging discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, neuropathy, and carpal tunnel syndrome.  Follow this link for more information on LCT-1000 Litecure Laser Therapy.

 

Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

 

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves).

 

 

Are there medical studies that document the effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

 

 
Yes!  One study documented by MRI upto 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases and other studies reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved "good" to "excellent" results after spinal decompression therapy.

"To Your Health" Magazine featured an article about spinal decompression therapy authored by Dr. James Edwards.  In the article, Dr. Edwards discussed the safety and effectiveness of this non-surgical treatment for spinal disc herniations.

Are there conditions where Spinal Decompression Therapy is not indicated?

 

 Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage.

Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or “cages”) is also contraindicated.  However, spinal decompression therapy after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery, can be performed.

 

 

Are the sessions painful, how many will be needed and what is the cost?

 

In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless.  In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session.

The specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination.  Based on current research, the best results have been achieved utilizing a minimum of 20 sessions over a 6-week period.

We also offer CareCredit that will allow you to finance the entire cost and make 6 monthly payments with no interest.  Or if you need more time, you can set up repayment for up to 60 months.  To apply for financing online and get instant approval in advance, just go to CareCredit.com.

Do most patients receive therapy and rehabilitative exercises in addition to Spinal Decompression Therapy?

To reduce inflammation and assist the healing process, supporting structures are treated with passive therapies (ice/heat/muscle stimulation), chiropractic adjustments (as indicated) and/or active rehabilitation in order to strengthen the spinal musculature.
