We have recently had our 1 year anniversary offerring non-surgical spinal decompression therapy in our office and I have to say we have never helped so many patients. This amazing treatment continues to assist with the conservative treatment of:
- Herniated Spinal Discs
- Spinal Stenosis
- Facet Syndrome
- Failed Surgery
Decompression therapy has several advantages over other forms of treatment for the problems listed above, and should be considered first, before starting invasive medical treatment with prescription medications, steroid injections, and surgery. Patients that have already started medical intervention can still benefit from decompression therapy. Here are a few of the advantages decompression therapy offers:
- Extremely Safe
- 70% Success rate based on clinical research and highly effective in most cases if screened properly
- FDA Cleared
- Affordable Cost
Would you like to see the medical studies done on spinal decompression?
One study documented by MRI up to 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.

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.
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 active rehabilitation in order to strengthen the spinal musculature.
Are the sessions painful? How many will be needed?
In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session. The number of sessions needed and your specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination.
What is the cost of treatment? Do you accept insurance or or offer financing solutions?
Our customary fee for each spinal decompression session is a small fraction of the $5,000+ amounts that some other doctors are charging.
Your insurance company will likely cover some of the spinal decompression therapy services provided on any given visit, although reimbursement varies, but your out-of-pocket expense for all needed services could be little more than your co-payment.
If you are not covered by insurance, we offer payment plans in-house or if you want, through a third party medical line of credit, such as CareCredit and Enhance Patient Financing, that will allow you to make up to 18 monthly payments with no interest. To apply for financing online and get instant approval in advance, just go to carecredit.com or enhancepatientfinance.com. Additionally, we accept credit cards and have prepayment discounts.]]>
