We go the extra mile for your health

For more than a decade Rising Sun Chiropractic has worked to be your St. Peter disc injury specialist, combining chiropractic and physical therapy techniques with powerful treatment options.

Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option…until now.

Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression Therapy was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

What are spinal decompression therapy treatments like?

At the beginning of each session, you will comfortably sit on the Back on Trac chair.  Your arms will rest over soft pads and your knees will rest over the leg bolster. Once your session starts the Back on Trac will slowly lay flat and begin to decompress your spine. During a session of spinal decompression, you will notice a slow lengthening of your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure. The treatment process is safe and relaxing. While some patients with extensively injured discs have reported mild discomfort during the first few treatment sessions, their discomfort subsides upon subsequent visits.

Treatments are typically between 8-12 minutes.

How does decompression therapy work for low back pain?

Spinal Decompression uses state-of-the-art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression works by creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.

What are typical treatment protocols?

A typical spinal decompression treatment protocol consists of about 12-24 sessions over four to 8 weeks. Some conditions require fewer visits; some require more. Many patients report relief from their pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions and most experience dramatic pain relief after completion of the prescribed treatment program.

How is decompression therapy different from traction, physical therapy, or chiropractic treatments?

Traction, physical therapy, and manipulation may reduce disc pressures to as low as 40 mm Hg, only spinal decompression has been shown to achieve negative pressures within the spine.

Is it true that Professional Athletes, Celebrities, and Patients in their 90s have turned to Spinal Decompression and Cold Laser Therapy as a Successful, non-surgical option for Neck and Back Pain WITHOUT the use of drugs, pills, and surgery?

Yes! Professional athletes, celebrities, and even patients in their 90s are turning to spinal decompression as an affordable, non-surgical alternative to neck and back pain without the use of drugs, pills, and surgery. People are tired of taking pills that simply mask the pain and can cause all kinds of serious side effects. People are frustrated with getting shots that work the first time or two and then eventually have minimal or no effect. We have all seen the challenges of surgery,  weeks of “down time’, scars, the risk of serious side effects, and the unfortunate “failed back surgery syndrome” cases. New non-surgical spinal decompression is not only effective and affordable but is also non-invasive and safe.
