SpineMED® Therapy Is Effective For:
Dear Omaha Back and Neck Pain Sufferers,
Are you worried about having to live with the pain or are concerned about the risks of possible spinal surgery?
Well there is great news as recent improvements in technology have developed a new and effective Non-Surgical treatment (for Bulging Discs, Sciatica, Spinal Stenosis and Neck/Back pain) called SpineMED® Decompression therapy.
The best part is SpineMED® therapy is FDA cleared, painless, has research, and does not involve any drugs or surgery.
It Works Because....
When the discs in your spine are damaged they often pinch the nerves. This can cause pain, tingling, numbness, weakness or other symptoms.
These damaged discs seldom heal because they remain under constant pressure from gravity, even while a person is at rest. Decompression is designed to reduce pressure inside the discs by gently separating or distracting the injured spinal segments thus reducing your pain.
Under distraction, pressure on the disc is relieved; thus allowing fluids, nutrients and oxygen to flow back into disc. This nutrient exchange helps kick starts your body's natural healing process and can eventually heal damaged spinal discs.
Surgery is Often Not Needed
Decompression therapy typically takes 15 minutes to perform and the treatments are extremely gentle. In fact it’s not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during treatment.
After adding Decompression therapy to our treatment protocol our patients results have significantly improved all the while providing a more gentle treatment experience.
In combination with Decompression therapy, Dr. Sizenbach performs other treatments to complete the healing process. Rest assured these treatments are extremely gentile and provide a more complete healing of the disc and supporting tissues.
For those who follow Dr. Sizenbach's treatment protocol find our treatment program to be highly effective.

“I've tried everything from chiropractic, physical therapy, massage, and excercise with limited results. I've had pain down my legs since i was a teenager and was unable to perform many activities. In only a few treatments with the spinemed decompression table I can now excercise and do most anything without pain. I recommend spinal decompression to everyone. ”
"I originally came in with severe lower back pain that went down to my knees. The treatments i tried before were just hands on adjustments that were short term relief. It didn't fix the problem for the long term.After completing treatment i no longer have back pain and working has been alot easier.I would recommend these treatments because it worked well."
"I was diagnosed with a bulging disc in my lower back. I could barely sleep throughout the night and the pain unbelievable. After only a few treatments on the decompression table I can now sleep throughout the night and the pain is alot less. "

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical and drug-free treatment for disc related injuries of the neck and lower back.
Spinal Disc Decompression uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, non-surgical decompression to your spine, increasing circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain.
2. How is this different from Traction or an inversion table?
When muscles that hold your spine together are pulled for to long they contract. Since traction and inversion tables are a constant pull, these muscles often guard against this and resist. When this happens it cannot create enough negative pressure to allow the disc to pull off the nerve.
Decompression therapy works by reducing the muscle resistance and helps create a more negative pressure inside the disc which ultimately helps it repair.
3. Do you use any other treatments along with the Decompression?
Yes. Decompression is just one part of our process. We incorporate other treatments and therapies to help speed up the healing process. Rest assured these treatments and modalities are very gentle and are designed to help the healing process.
We also will advise the patient on any stretching and exercises for at home care.
4. Is there any research showing the effectiveness of Decompression Therapy?
Absolutely! We will provide you the research articles at our office.
5. Are the treatments painful?
No. Spinal Decompression is totally safe and comfortable for all subjects. It is not uncommon for some patients to fall asleep during treatment.
Spinal Disc Decompression has shown to be safe and without side effects or complications once abnormal conditions have been ruled out.
6. What Results can I expect?
It is unethical to guarantee a cure. But Results may differ from patient to patient based on many factors such as Age, condition, length of time, and other health factors. Often times a patient experiences some relief within the first few (3-7) treatments. Usually by the 12th to 18th treatment most patients have reported some remission of symptoms.
7. Can Spinal Decompression be used for patients that have had spinal surgery?
Yes. In fact many patients have found success with Spinal Decompression after a failed back surgery. Ultimately the Doctor will determine if Decompression therapy will be beneficial in your particular case.
8. Am I eligible for Decompression Therapy?
The most common types of conditions that are successfully treated with spinal decompression therapy are (but not limited to): Disc bulges (herniations, slipped, or bulging), sciatica (leg pain), disc disease, stenosis, arm pain, neck, and back pain. The best way to know is to call us for an appointment to see if you are a good candidate.
I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Functional Wellness Center of Omaha, I’m Dr. Scott Sizenbach, D.C.. I know you have looked at other offices in which to receive care and I appreciate you taking a look at ours.
As luck would have it, few years ago I severely injured myself while lifting my step-daughter out of my car. This severely affected my ability to work and I even contemplated the idea of getting surgery.
So I put my money where my mouth is and went through the SpineMED Decompression treatments you are looking at on this website. These treatments not only helped me avoid surgery but as of today I am still pain free.
This gave me a unique position of understanding what my patients will go through and as a result completely changed my treatment process.
I realized most health care providers (and even myself at the time) were doing it all wrong when it comes to disc related injuries. Once I changed the process our results have been sky high.
You see I’ve never thought it was fair that I get know everything about my patients but they don’t get to know anything about me. I was born in Davenport, Iowa and moved to Omaha when I was 4 years old. I attended Millard North High School and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln.
I then received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. I have been in practice for 19 years and to date have performed over 75,000 different patient treatments.
At our office we work very hard at making you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive and long after you have left. We make it a point to get to know you and your family, because you're not just a number at our office.
If you decide to become a patient at our office I feel it’s important that you and I work together as a partnership with your good health and my reputation as the by-product of that relationship. I will never do anything to jeopardize either of these.
Hope to see you soon!
Dr. Scott Sizenbach, D.C.
