For many doctors, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy serves as an effective way to treat patients’ back pain while avoiding the operating room.
In its nonsurgical form, spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that can help relieve back pain by gently stretching the spine, changing its force and position. Doing so relieves pressure from spinal disks, which act as cushions between the bones of your spine.
During nonsurgical spinal decompression, a patient is fitted with a harness around the pelvis and with another around the torso. Patients lie either face-up or face-down on a computer-controlled table. The doctor then operates the computer to perform the decompression specific to your treatment.
Non-surgical spinal decompression has received favorable reviews from doctors across the country who have witnessed first-hand the positive effects it has had on patients.
So what are doctors saying about non-surgical spinal decompression?

“There is a place for surgery, but definitely not at the front line. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy should be a front-line treatment for chronic back pain patients suffering from bulging, herniated or degenerative disc disease and facet syndrome. As a surgeon, I only want to do surgery when I absolutely have to. Spinal decompression therapy gives my patients a more conservative treatment option that can eliminate the need for surgery altogether, and that’s a very good thing. Spinal decompression therapy also gives me a treatment options for those patients who have had surgery and have relapse or experience a return of pain following surgery. It allows me to offer patients a key, non-surgical weapon in the war on back pain.” Bernard Zeliger, DO, FACOS, FAOAO, FICS Osteopathic Physician and Surgeon Founding Dean and Provost of Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Vallejo, CA

“As an interventional pain physician, I feel that spinal decompression therapy has filled a void in our continuum of treatment for those patients suffering from back and neck pain associated with disc pathology. The majority of the other procedure(s) I perform, such as injections and nerve blocks, treat the pain due to tissue and nerve irritation, which only reduce the patients’ pain. My enthusiasm for spinal decompression therapy stems from the fact that it is the only therapy that scientifically attempts to heal and ‘rejuvenate’ the discs. My personal experience with this non-invasive therapy is that qualified patients will show improvement within the first few treatments.” Juan J. Gargiulo MD—Southampton, N.Y. East End Pain Management

“Neurologists like myself have long known that we should do everything possible to help our patients avoid back surgery. Now with spinal decompression therapy, we finally have a very effective way to treat back pain without surgery. The vast majority of even our worst cases experience significant, long-lasting relief if they complete the entire treatment regimen. Anyone who says this is experimental doesn’t know what they’re talking about.” Orlando Maldonado MD, Bradenton, FL

“We have treated thousands of patients who have experienced long term, pain free healing because of decompression therapy. With non-surgical decompression, we offer real modification of the patient’s disc disease processes and rehabilitation of the neuropathic and mechanical symptoms, rather than just offering palliative care. I use it for myself, and it is worth its weight in gold.” Phil Fisher, DO, PhD, Barboursville, WV
