WELCOME!

You've probably seen the newspaper ads that "hype" Spinal Decompression Therapy asking you to call some unknown doctor's office in order to receive a free report in the mail.  We do not believe anyone should have to do that!

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 616-457-1168 and ask to talk to the doctor. That's right, I'll talk to you personally in order to help you make the right decision.

THANKS FOR VISITING!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

bar30.jpg

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical traction based treatment outcome for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and lower back. Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain may be helped by spinal decompression therapy.

bar30.jpgHow many spinal decompression sessions will be needed and are they painful?

exam.jpg

The number of sessions needed and your specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination.

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

 What type of decompression system is used?

After a significant amount of research, our office chose what we believe to be the most sophisticated, technologically advanced, state-of-the-art decompression system in the world. tritonsm.gif

We also selected this decompression system due to its ability to treat discs in both the neck and the low back.

bar30.jpgWhat Makes Spinal Decompression Therapy so Effective?

Doctor skill combined with the table and computerized traction head tritoncd.gifare the keys.

Proper assessment, 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.

bar30.jpgWho 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 even failed surgery.

bar30.jpgAre there medical studies that document the effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

tyhealth.jpgYes!  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.

bar30.jpgAre there conditions where Spinal Decompression Therapy is not indicated?

fusion.bmpSpinal 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.

bar30.jpgAre the sessions painful, how many will be needed and what is the cost?

Our customary fee for each spinal decompression session is only $40 which means the total cost will be a small fraction of the $5,000+ amounts that some other doctors are charging.

If your insurance company covers spinal decompression therapy, reimbursement varies but your out-of-pocket expense for all needed services could be as little as your co-payment.

If not covered by insurance, we offer CareCredit that will allow you to make 6 monthly payments with no interest.  To apply for financing online and get instant approval in advance, just go to CareCredit.com.carecred.jpg
