Spinal Decompression is a new non-surgical medical treatment that has been clinically proven to effectively relieve the pain caused by degenerated or herniated spinal discs in the back and neck even in severe cases. This FDA approved therapy painlessly decompresses the discs in the spine, relieving pressure on the affected nerves and spinal structures.
Do you have back pain, neck pain or pain in your arms or legs? Would you like to avoid surgery, a prolonged hospital stay and weeks of recovery time while saving thousands of dollars? Then you may be a candidate for this revolutionary treatment.
Spinal Decompression works by creating a powerful vacuum force inside the spinal discs. This force rehydrates and reshapes the discs, relieving pain caused by disc bulging, herniation or degeneration. Once the disc has returned to its normal size and shape, decompression therapy allows the outer structure of the spinal discs to heal. This means a return to normal activity, and long-term pain relief.

Patient Success Stories:
“I had been through several different treatments before having spinal decompression therapy. I went through physical therapy for 2 months, I had injections in my low back, and I was taking pain medications just to get by. The physical therapy helped just a little, and the shots helped for a short time, but after they wore off, I felt even worse than before. My first doctor told me that surgery was one of my last options, but there was a chance my pain would come back afterwards. That’s when I did some research and found Dr. Badger’s office. He examined me and looked at my MRIs and told me I was a good case for spinal decompression. I decided to have the decompression therapy as a last hope to avoid surgery. Now that I am ¾ of the way through the treatments, I am feeling about 80% better and I can’t believe I even considered surgery! The best part about my recovery is I am able to pick up my 2-year-old son again without pain.”
“I underwent decompression therapy for a L5-S1 herniation. My symptoms in my back and leg were so bad that I considered quitting my job. About halfway through the prescribed treatments was when I started to see results. When the treatments were over, I was feeling normal in my leg and had only mild lower back soreness. One week later, the soreness was completely gone. I am back to work and intend to keep my job for another 20 years.”
“My work as a dentist was making my back pain unbearable. When I started losing sensation in my foot, I started making plans to sell my practice and retire so that I didn’t risk making my back problem worse to the point I would need surgery. I decided to have spinal decompression treatment from Dr.s Badger, Hornfeld and Odell at Horizon Spine and Sport. I chose their facility because they had the latest equipment and they worked together (chiropractors and medical doctors) to get the best results. As a result of my treatments, the pain in my back is gone, and I have normal sensation in my foot. I am very appreciative of the teamwork it took between these wonderful doctors to heal me. I know that I can keep practicing dentistry now because these doctors will always be there for me.”
“I was hit by a car while riding my motorcycle and suffered a low back disc herniation. The pain that it caused was the worst thing I’d ever felt. I needed strong pain killers just to get by, and there was no way I could teach my kids. Injections only had a temporary effect and I feel like my physical therapy might have made me a little worse. I had already missed 7 weeks of work when I started my decompression treatments at Horizon Spine and Sport. Now that my treatments are done, I feel great! My back pain is almost 100 percent gone, and I’m heading back to school in the fall to resume teaching. If you have a back problem like mine, spinal decompression from these doctors is the way to go!”
What the Research Says:
"Eighty-six percent of ruptured intervertebral disc (RID) patients achieved 'good' (50-89% improvement) to 'excellent' (90-100% improvement) results with decompression. Sciatica and back pain were relieved." "Of the facet arthrosis patients, 75% obtained 'good' to 'excellent' results with decompression."

"Results showed that 86% of the 219 patients who completed the therapy reported immediate resolution of symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the 219 patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment."

"Serial MRI of 20 patients treated with the decompression table shows in our study up to 90% reduction of subligamentous nucleus herniation in 10 of 14. Some rehydration occurs detected by T2 and proton density signal increase. Torn annulus repair is seen in all."

Spinal Decompression Therapy "...allowed imbibition and complete reduction of the visualized herniation."
"Spinal decompression therapy provided an effective means of treatment for this patient's symptoms resulting from discal herniation (extrusion) with associated impingement of the adjacent nerve root."
"MR imaging proved to be a useful and non-invasive technique in monitoring the efficacy of decompression therapy as it applies to this case."
"Decompression of the spine proved to be superior to the other forms of conservative care when applied to our patient. The patients' results were both subjectively favorable and objectively quantified."
