Spinal Decompression Options at Frisco Spinal Rehab

Dr. Kaff and Dr. Wayne are pleased to bring the top different treatment options for herniated, bulging and degenerative discs.  We have been treating discs in this office for nearly 25 years.  If you've never tried decompression or tried decompression at another clinic and didn't get the results you hoped for, come and visit with us about these options.

Let’s review 4 different options we incorporate into our treatment plans here at Frisco Spinal Rehab.  We offer everything from just relieving back pain all the way up to resolving spinal disc issues. Apply now to be part of an organization committed to your success.
First, we have our “old school” roller table from way back.  It rolls clockwise or counterclockwise up and down the spine to mobilize it.  You can adjust the intensity and add vibration for a relaxing session.  It’s good for stiff arthritic backs with no disc issues or very mild disc problems.
Next we have our Back-on-Trac decompression chair.  This device has built-in heat and vibration which makes it extra comfortable.  The chair tilts you back and opens the spine with distraction and lateral flexion which helps with muscular tightness and mild disc issues.
Next, we have our Chattanooga DTS tables.  With these tables, we can decompress the neck and the lower back.  They are a good economic option for mild or moderate disc problems.
Finally, we have the DRX 9000.  This is the Cadillac of decompression tables and the “go-to” choice for people suffering from moderate to severe disc issues.  When it comes to severe disc issues, your 2 main options are to either cut it out (surgery) or suck it back in (decompression).  The DRX 9000 has technology similar to a ballistic missile to adjust the tension on the fly and make sure to deliver the proper level of force at the proper time.

What Our Patients Are Saying...

L4-L5 Disc Herniation
Dr. Kaff is not only a phenomenal chiropractor, but he is a phenomenal person as well. After four years of failed back treatments through physical therapy, epidurals, muscle relaxers, etc, decompression combined with adjustments by Dr. Kaff has done wonders! Thanks Dr. Kaff!
- C. Word Celina, TX
Sciatica
My whole life had come to a halt from my normal routine. Walking was almost impossible and therefore every aspect of life was impacted. Initially, Dr. Kaff arranged for an MRI and pain medication for temporary relief. The MRI showed three bulging discs. After treatments, my life has returned to normal. Dr. Kaff's use of the stretching table allowed my discs to shrink back and took the pressure off the nerve.

Multiple Disc Herniations
My overall quality of life was virtually none…bedridden. My mood was cross-as-two sticks!! I had herniations from L1 to L5 after being injured 30 years ago playing intramural football and aggravated my condition periodically doing physical labor and weight training. Now I can sit, drive for distances, fly in an airplane, walk my dog, dance, perform aerobics and weight train. My progress is 90%+.

Surgery Recommended
I had a bulging disk and a pinched nerve. My back began to bother me when I would bend and lift. The pain went on and I had to go see the doctor. My ability to participate and enjoy an active lifestyle was affected. My sleep was affected, as well as my mood and relationships with others. They had recommended surgery but I didn't want the surgery so I came to this office. After a week of treatment, I noticed tremendous progress. I think the service is excellent.

Two Previous Back Surgeries
Ten years ago, I had two back surgeries due to herniated discs in my lower back. Recently, I began experiencing severe pain in my right hip and leg. I was unable to sleep, exercise, drive or sit comfortable before being treated at Dr. Kaff's office. I got relief after the 4th treatment. The pain has subsided tremendously! I feel better overall! The service is great! I have already referred other people to this office.

Spinal Decompression: How It Can Help Relieve Back Pain

According to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017, back pain leads the list of worldwide disabilities. In fact, back pain is a common reason for losing days at work and costs the US economy nearly $635 billion. Here are some other statistics about back pain:

  • 540 million people around the world suffer from back pain every day.
  • 5% of the global population experiences lower back pain.
  • 80% of Americans will suffer from back pain during their lifetime.
  • About four in ten office workers will experience lower back pain.
  • 5% of those who struggle with back pain will develop chronic back pain.
  • Low back pain is especially prevalent in women, people over 30, and the obese.
  • Those who have physically demanding jobs, certain physical and mental conditions, and smokers are at much greater risk of suffering from back pain.

As the world’s aging population increases, the need for successful treatments grows, too. One of those treatments is spinal decompression of the spine, a safe, drug-free remedy for spinal issues.

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive procedure used to relieve back and neck pain and focuses on intermittent traction force to the spine. Traction therapy in this context means “the deliberate and prolonged pulling of the spine, as by weights, to reduce pressure, etc.” This pulling stretches the spine, taking pressure off the discs and nerves and has provided relief for those with herniated discs, pinched nerves, scoliosis, sciatica, and degenerative disc disease.

Who is a good candidate for chiropractic care for spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is particularly helpful for:

  • Athletes who want to improve their spinal health and strength
  • Normal people who are suffering with sciatica and back pain
  • Active adults who suffer from chronic pain but don’t want to take painkillers or other drugs

How does chiropractic care and spinal decompression work together?

The Process

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses a traction device to gently stretch the spine, creating negative pressure in the discs to reduce pressure on the spinal nerves and alleviate pain. This therapy helps to reduce pressure on the spine, allowing the discs to rehydrate and become more flexible, which helps to improve the range of motion, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the affected area.

The patient lies down, fully clothed, on a computer-controlled traction table. A harness is placed around the pelvis with another one around the midsection of the body. The chiropractic doctor operates the force exerted by the table to stretch the spine, which is customized to the patient’s individual needs.

The chiropractor may also choose to use the following either before or after each session:

  • Photobiomodulation bed to promote circulation and healing and reduce system inflammation
  • Massage Therapy to relax tight muscles.
  • Heat or cold therapy: Heat increases the flow of blood and nutrients to the affected area of the body while cold reduces swelling and pain.

This regimen helps the patient regain strength and control of the stabilization muscles, which creates more long-term benefits.

Duration of Treatment

An average treatment plan involves 20-28 treatments over six to eight weeks. Each treatment lasts around 30-45 minutes.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care and spinal decompression?

There are many benefits when patients choose spinal decompression from their chiropractor:

  • Improved spinal nerve functioning
  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduce spinal pain and inflammation
  • Prevention of back problems
  • Few side effects

What are the risks of spinal decompression?

You may experience the following after spinal decompression:

  • Some muscle spasms: Tell the doctor, since ice and muscle stimulation can be used to help and the settings on the table can be adjusted.
  • Shooting pain down the arm or leg: You have the ability to press a stop button during treatment to let someone know who can make adjustments.

In order to reduce the risk of side effects, chiropractic spinal decompression should not be used if you have:

  • Bone cancer or infection
  • Severe rheumatoid arthritis
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Artificial discs, or bone on bone screws
  • Recent spinal or abdominal surgery

Also, let the chiropractor know if you have had previous spinal surgery, spondylolisthesis, Paget disease, or difficulty lying on your back or stomach.
