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 published studies and actual case studies 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 743-2364 and ask to speak to Doctor Moellendorf about spinal decompression.
That's right, we'll talk to you personally in order to help you make the right decision.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression 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.

 How many spinal decompression sessions will be needed and are they painful?

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 for this purpose and is the doctor certified in spinal decompression therapy?

After a significant amount of research, Moellendorf Chiropractic Office, Ltd. chose the Triton ® DTS system manufactured by the Chattanooga Group, the premier manufacturer of physical medicine equipment.  More importantly, we have the brand new computerized head which is the most sophisticated and technologically advanced unit in the world.

In fact, the new Triton® head is so revolutionary that it won the Australian Design Award in the "Medical and Scientific" category. It is also the system that the University of Texas purchased for the treatment of its world-class athletes. We also selected the Triton® DTS systems due to their ability to treat discs in both the neck and the low back. In regard to clinical skills, Dr. Moellendorf has completed the Kennedy Decompression Technique course work and passed the qualifying examination to achieve the status of "Certified Practitioner" in spinal decompression therapy.

What Makes Spinal Decompression Therapy So Effective?

Doctor skill combined with the table and computerized traction head are 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.

Who 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).

Yes!  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 herniated disc patients achieved "good" to "excellent" results after spinal decompression therapy.
