Spinal Decompression Offers Back Pain Relief In Doylestown
Dr. Jeff McQuaite, and his team at McQuaite Chiropractic Center are only one of a handful of offices in Bucks County to offer safe, effective spinal decompression therapy.
The DTS Spinal Decompression machine is a non-surgical treatment clinically-proven to be one of the most successful conservative treatment for chronic low back pain and sciatica, caused by bulging, herniated or degenerative discs, and facet syndrome. Even post-surgical patients and those suffering from stenosis (A narrowing of the spinal canal) have reported significant pain relief from spinal decompression treatments.
We offer a computerized, traction based, relaxing treatment that gently stretches and lengthens the spine, reversing the pressure in the discs. This helps to create a vacuum effect inside the discs that not only takes pressure off of pinched nerves, but helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place. It also causes nutrients, oxygen, and fluids to be pulled back into the disc to help speed up its healing.
Dr. McQuaite only accepts clinically appropriate patients for this therapy. During your free first visit, Dr. Jeff will go over your medical history, review your reports and if he feels you initially qualify for this procedure; we will schedule a second visit, which is also free. Only then will we ask for a copy of your insurance card so that we can submit it to our billing company. On this second visit, Dr. Jeff will go over his report of findings with you which includes your specifically prescribed plan and review your insurance coverage with you.
A patient’s comfort is our top priority, and we want their visits to be enjoyable and successful. Therefore, unlike many spinal decompression tables, you have several positioning options.
Most patients choose to receive their treatment lying on their back. First a specialized belt will be placed around your waist. You will then simply lie on your back, we’ll set the machine to focus on your problem area and then the advanced computer will take care of the rest.
