Spinal Decompression

Do you suffer with severe or recurring back pain, sharp pain or numbness, or radiating symptoms down arms or legs? These are classic signs of disc problems and should be acted on immediately to prevent herniation and surgery. Non-invasive spinal decompression could be your ticket to freedom from pain.

Excessive compression forces from everyday activities can increase pressure on the spinal disc leading to spinal disc protrusion, herniation, and bulging of disc material. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine at the exact location of the disc involved. Unlike spinal traction, which needlessly stretches the entire spine, spinal decompression isolates only the injured disc, making it much more effective.

Decompression creates negative pressure within the disc so that bulging or herniated disks can retract, taking pressure off nerves and other spinal structures. This, in turn, allows movement of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the discs, promoting healing, disc regeneration and relief from discomfort.

I had piercing pain down my right leg from a disc herniation.

"I first came in with a Lumbar Disc Herniation after a weight lifting injury. The pain was pinching and piercing down my right leg. It caused abnormal nerve sensations and led to a decrease in life enjoyment. I had a significant amount of numbness and tingling radiating down my leg as well. On a scale of 1 to 10, the pain was a 7. I tried many things but nothing helped.

I decided to take matters in my own hands, and found Spinal Decompression online.

My recovery process has been both fast and enjoyable. As a result of my treatment, I now enjoy daily exercise, time with family and can finally sleep soundly at night! The only drawback is that now I can no longer use my back pain as an excuse to miss family reunions. I would highly recommend Spinal Decompression."

Spinal Decompression Success Stories

We were in a rollover accident 3 years ago which resulted in a slipped and ruptured disk.

I had physical therapy twice in that time but still had a lot of pain and numbness in my back and left leg. Also I had gastric reflux, asthma and allergies that were very difficult to keep under control.

My back and posture are much better from my treatments at Dr. Geck’s office.

The nutritional supplements have really helped with the allergies and asthma and gastric reflux.

I have not needed the emergency measures even during the allergy season.

I feel that the help I received from Dr. Dan was a gift from God. I have always tried different things to improve my health but have never had the kind of results I experienced here.

Thanks Dr. Dan!

When I first started here, I could hardly move or get in my car.

I take care of a farm and have to work on a tractor all day, and I couldn’t do that because it was

causing too much pain.

I started feeling better very quickly.

After a month I was able to do all my jobs with only a little soreness.

The pain is almost completely gone.

Walking down three flights of stairs today from the parking structure to my hair appointment, I reflect on how things were year ago before I had Dr. Geck's treatment.

What he and his medical crew have done for me is nothing short of miraculous and I am so very grateful.

At the age of 68, I could easily have just accepted limping as the natural course of aging deterioration. Thank heavens, a friend recommended Dr. Geck to me. And I want to 'pay it forward' by recommending Dr. Geck and his wonderful crew to you!

When I first came in, I could barely move because I had “tweaked” my lower back. However, that was not my only problem. For the past couple of years I had pretty much felt crappy.

Three months later, I feel like a new person. My back is in much better shape, but more importantly I feel alive again.

I now workout almost every day, eat much healthier and look forward to having energy again.

This is a great place to learn and to heal.

Your body can heal itself stay away from unnecessary medicines!
