For over 32 years, Dr. Tom Horn and his professional team at Horn Family Chiropractic our Athens PA chiropractic clinic have been successfully treating patients that suffer from neck and back pain with Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. Many of these patients have been taking pain medications for years, tried physical therapy, received multiple pain injections, and even had surgeries. They state, "I am tired of living in pain, unable to do the things they love."

What Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression In Athens PA?

Your occupation, age, past injuries, and even your favorite hobbies can often lead to back and neck pain. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a state-of-the-art treatment to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and restore spinal motion all while treating the underlying cause.

When discs are injured, they will bulge beyond their limits. The excessive pressure on the disc can cause it to bulge or herniate and irritate the spinal nerves resulting in pain, weakness, tingling, and numbness in the arms or legs.

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is designed to relieve the pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves in the neck and low back. This, in turn, helps promote the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs, stimulating the formation of collagen which helps the disc to heal. As your treatment progresses and healing begins, the motion within the joints of your spine and the flexibility of the muscles that support your neck and back are restored.

How Many Treatments Does It Take?

The average successful treatment plan requires 20 to 24 sessions over a seven-to-nine-week time period. Each treatment is approximately 30-45 minutes. Spinal Decompression is gentle and relaxing, many of our patients even fall asleep during the treatment.

This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, opioid addiction and the potential of failed back surgery.



Non-Surgical Decompression is a Game Changer!!!

"My name is Joe and I work in sales for a heavy equipment company. I've had low back pain and discomfort for the past 8 years. Over the past year the pain got very intense in my left leg and limited my ability to move normal. I've tried muscle relaxers and pain pills which only gave me temporary relief. Because of the pain, I could not sleep well or relax which caused me to be exhausted mentally, emotionally and physically. It was difficult to really enjoy life. My medical doctor recommended surgery, which was not an option in my mind.

I decided to go see the doctors at Horn Family Chiropractic and Dr. Tom and Dr. Nate both recommended Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy (NSSD). This treatment was a game changer for me. I am now able to relax with my family, hike, swim and play with my children without any discomfort. I am able to get back to and complete the house projects that I had to put off because of the pain. The Doctors and team at Horn family Chiropractic are the most pleasant, professional, upbeat and positive people I can remember encountering in one place. Their positive attitudes and energy are contagious. NSSD had helped me tremendously and I would highly recommend it."
