When the discs in your spine are damaged they often pinch the nerves. This can cause pain, tingling, numbness, weakness or other symptoms.
These damaged spinal discs seldom heal because they remain under constant pressure from gravity, even while a person is at rest. SpineMED® Decompression is designed to reduce pressure inside the discs by gently separating or distracting the injured spinal segments.
Under distraction, pressure on the disc is relieved; thus allowing fluids, nutrients and oxygen to flow back into disc. This nutrient exchange helps the body’s natural rebuilding process and can accelerate the repair and eventually heal damaged spinal discs.
In addition to allowing nutrition back to the injured discs it helps pull back any portion of the disc that is pinching the nerve. This helps eliminate your pain and symptoms.
SpineMED® decompression therapy typically takes 15 minutes to perform and most patients find pain relief within a few sessions.
For those who are candidates and follow Dr. Sizenbach's treatment guidelines find our treatment program to be highly effective. SpineMED® therapy is affordable, painless, and does not involve any drugs or surgery.
During the initial visit the Doctor will determine if you are a good candidate for our treatments. To schedule an appointment for a free consultation to see if you are a candidate please give us a call at 402-397-1800.

Video of Dr. Sizenbach Explaining SpineMED therapy
“I've tried everything from
chiropractic, physical therapy,
massage, and excercise with limited
results. I've had pain down my legs
since i was a teenager and was
unable to perform many activities. In
only a few treatments with the
spinemed decompression table I can
now excercise and do most anything
without pain. I recommend spinal
decompression to everyone. ”
"I was diagnosed with a bulging disc in my lower back. I could barely sleep throughout the night and the pain unbelievable.
After only a few treatments on the decompression table I can now sleep throughout the night and the pain is alot less. "
*Rich H., Bellevue, Ne
"I originally came in with severe lower back pain that went down to my knees. The treatments i tried before were just hands on adjustments that were short term relief. It didn't fix the problem for the long term.
After completing treatment i no longer have back pain and working has been alot easier.
I would recommend these treatments because it worked well."
*Scott R, Omaha
*"I didn't think this would work."
To see what she had to say watch Judy's (Omaha) testimonial.
"I came into the office with severe shooting pain down my right leg and paralyzing pain in my lower lumbar area. Before starting treatment I was on prescription gabapentin with No relief.
After completing treatment I have virtually no pain. I can DANCE!
I would recommend these treatments because I can get out of bed and walk with no pain!"
Frequently Asked Questions About Decompression Therapy
1. What is Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical and drug-free treatment for disc related injuries of the neck and lower back. Spinal Disc Decompression uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, non-surgical decompression to your spine, increasing circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain.
2. Is this FDA Cleared?
Yes. The SpineMED and DTS are FDA cleared. A premarket notification, referred to as a 510(k), must be submitted to FDA for clearance.
3. Is there any research showing the effectiveness of Decompression Therapy?
Yes. Please click on the link here to see research articles on Decompression Therapy.
4. Are the treatments painful?
No. Spinal Decompression is totally safe and comfortable for all subjects. The system has emergency stop switches for both the patient and the operator. These switches (a requirement of the FDA) terminate the treatment immediately thereby avoiding any injuries. It is quite common for some patients to fall asleep during treatment.
5. Are there any side effects?
Spinal Disc Decompression has shown to be safe and without side effects or complications once abnormal conditions have been ruled out.
6. What Results can I expect?
It is unethical to guarantee a cure. But Results may differ from patient to patient based on many factors such as Age, condition, length of time, and other health factors. Often times a patient experiences some relief within the first few (3-7) treatments. Usually by the 12th to 15th treatment most patients have reported some remission of symptoms.
7. How does Spinal Decompression treatment differ from ordinary spinal traction?
Traction and inversion tables, at best, can lower the intradiscal pressure from a +90 to a +30 mmHg. Spinal Decompression can reduce the intradiscal pressure to between a -150 to -200 mmHg thus allowing better negative pressure or vacum effect inside the disc . This effect causes the disc to pull in the bulge disc and the increase in negative pressure allowing the flow of blood and nutrients back into the disc. This helps the body to heal the injury and re-hydrate the disc.
Also Traction often triggers the body's normal response to stretching by creating painful muscle spasms that worsen the pain in affected area.
8. Can Spinal Decompression be used for patients that have had spinal surgery?
In most cases Spinal Decompression treatment is not contra-indicated for patients that have had spinal surgery. In fact many patients have found success with Spinal Decompression after a failed back surgery. Ultimately the Doctor will determine if Decompression therapy will be beneficial in your particular case.
9. Am I eligible for Decompression Therapy?
Typically we do not know for sure if a patient is eligible for Spinal Decompression therapy without examining them. After the examination and viewing either x-rays or MRI's, the doctor will then determine if the patient is a good candidate for spinal decompression therapy. The most common types of conditions that are successfully treated with spinal decompression therapy are (but not limited to): Disc bulges (herniations, slipped, or bulging), sciatica (leg pain), disc disease, stenosis, arm pain, neck, and back pain.

Results will vary based on age of the person, condition, patient follow thru, damage to the spine, and many other factors. Everyone responds different to treatment.
