What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression or Traction is primarily used for bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, and facet syndrome.

It is performed with the use of a decompression or traction table, which gently and slowly distracts the desired treatment area. Specific settings are input depending on the condition and the patient. When you distract or stretch the spine, it unloads pressure and creates a "vacuum effect" inside the discs of the spine. This causes nutrients and fluid to enter the discs, rehydrating them, speeding tissue repair and may induce retraction of a bulge or herniation of the disc. As we age, our discs tend to dehydrate and thin, which is why we generally lose height as we age, so this therapy is great for general maintenance and preventing degeneration of our spine.

The patient lies comfortably on his/her back on the decompression table, with a set of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. For the neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair of soft rubber pads behind the neck. You do NOT hang upside down, and it's not a "rack" (so that's good!). It generally feels very good, and most patients feel relief in as little as five minutes or even immediately.

This therapy has increased our outcomes pretty drastically, meaning our patients get better faster. They are out of pain more quickly and are able to get back to doing what they want to do, without pain. Two brief examples:

25 year old male came to the office with severe low back pain and left leg sciatica which he rated 9-10/10 with 10 being the most pain possible. He received electric muscle stimulation, spinal decompression, and chiropractic adjustments. After three visits he was 100% and was discharged from care.

72 year old male presented with severe low back pain and right leg sciatica. He was unable to move without the use of his wife's walker. He received chiropractic adjustments and spinal traction. He returned for his next visit, stated he was 50% improved, and after six more visits he was 100% and was discharged from care.

Chiropractic adjustments are the workhouse of treatments for our patients, and most will usually respond with them alone. However, having multiple adjunctive therapies, such as spinal decompression available at our office gets people better, faster. We offer fast care plans and our goal is to get you out of pain and back to full function as quickly as possible, because that's what we want if we were to see any type of physician.

A Little Bit About Buesing Chiropractic and Rehab

At our office we listen to your issues, take a detailed exam, deliver highly advanced care palns, and we do it on time, every time!


Originally we started out as a typical chiropractic practice. We graduallly shifted to cateing to the most difficult cases, migraines, shoulder, spine, etc, and even autoimmune disorders, IBS, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Celiac Disease, and other metabolic disorders. Dr. Buesing personally suffered with chronic headaches, shoulder pain, and autoimmune disease (Celiac). He found no answers or relief for 15 years, until he began his doctoral degree.

The knowledge he gained there empowered him to correctly diagnose himself, order the right tests, and successfully treated himself. Dr. Buesing continues to study a minimum of two hours a day on musculo-skeletal and neuro-metabolic disorders and the best therapies for them. Everyone is a different puzzle! It is his passion, thoroughness, kindness, character, and trustworthiness that we hear the most compliments from patients about him.

The Gold Standard for Gluten Testing

Getting the right tests will tell you are gluten intolerant or have Celiac disease.

Many of you know that Dr. Buesing has Celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten, (a protein found in many grains), causes an affected individual's immune system to attack their own small intestine. To make a long story short, this inhibits the absorption of nutrients (among others), which means EVERY system of the body is eventually affected, leading to wide ranging symptoms.

This is what makes it so hard to diagnose. A person may see their doctor with constipation, weight gain, and fatigue. Or alternating constipation and diarrhea with "brain fog" and multiple areas of joint pain. Even depression and anxiety and little to no digestive complaints. The list of combinations is almost endless.

How do you find out if you have gluten intolerance or celiac disease? Unfortunately, the tests most commonly ordered, are inaccurate, leading to many false negatives. You need to get the right tests, which are the "gold standard", meaning high degree of accuracy. There are two options, a biopsy of the colon (not a popular choice), or blood testing from Cyrex Labs.

Cyrex specializes in immunology and autoimmunity testing, and they are excellent. They even have a test which will accurately show any "cross reactive" foods and other food sensitivities, if they are present, leaving no stone unturned. Examples of these foods are oats, yeast, soy, even coffee, and many others.

If you have been struggling with any type of chronic condition, getting the right tests is imperative. Dr. Buesing lived with his conditions for 15 years before he successfully self-diagnosed and self-treated himself. Hopefully this little bit of information will empower anyone else who has been miss or undiagnosed. Get the right testing and know for sure!
