- Herniated or Bulging Discs
Do you suffer from any of the above spinal problems? Are you looking to avoid surgery? If so please read about our SpineMED® and Trition Non-Surgical spinal therapy program.
SpineMED® Non-Surgical Decompression therapy is FDA cleared and shown to be effective in treating Bulging discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and neck/back pain. You can view the research on Decompression here (article one, two & three).
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. 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, it helps pull back any portion of the disc that is pinching the nerve. This helps eliminate your pain and symptoms.
Decompression therapy typically takes 15 minutes to perform and the treatments are extremely gentle. It's not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during treatment.
For those who are candidates and follow our treatment guidelines find our treatment program to be highly effective. Please don't forget to watch Dr. Sizenbach's video above to see how it all works.

“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."

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. How is this different from Traction or an inversion table?
When muscles that hold your spine together are pulled for to long they contract and resist. Since traction and inversion tables are a constant pull, the muscles often guard against this and resist. When this happens it cannot create enough negative pressure to allow the disc to repair.
Decompression therapy works by reducing this muscles resistance. This creates more negative pressure in the disc which ultimately helps it repair.
3. 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.
4. Is there any research showing the effectiveness of Decompression Therapy?

5. Are the treatments painful?
No. Spinal Decompression is totally safe and comfortable for all subjects. It is not uncommon for some patients to fall asleep during treatment.
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 18th treatment most patients have reported some remission of symptoms.
7. Can Spinal Decompression be used for patients that have had spinal surgery?
Yes. 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.
