Welcome to our website!  At Back to Health Chiropractic we provide a computerized, FDA-cleared, nonsurgical, drug-free procedure for alleviating back and neck pain caused by herniated discs, called "spinal traction & decompression"

Computerized Traction & Spinal Decompression is an amazing therapy that can be applied to individuals with herniated cervical disks, herniated lumbar discs as well as those with advanced spinal degeneration. 

Our Dynatron DX2 Traction & Decompression Unit provides targeted traction & decompression by automatically calculating and digitally displaying the tensions needed to treat particular portions of either the upper, middle or lower regions of the cervical spine and lumbar spine. 

If you need any additional information, please call our office at
(207) 324-7098 to talk to the doctor, or to make an appointment for a free consultation. 

Patients seeking treatment at Back to Health Chiropractic often experience almost immediate relief from pain associated with herniated (bulging) discs. Patients will receive only the finest and most technologically advanced care through the use of the Dynatron DX2 Traction & Decompression System. 

This website will give you the complete facts about spinal decompression, and provide data from clinic trials (click here) that support its effectiveness.  Please feel free to browse these pages to discover what you can learn about this remarkable treatment.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy and what are its advantages?

Spinal decompression therapy is a safe, non-surgical traction-based treatment for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and lower back. Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain may be helped by spinal decompression therapy.  
What type of decompression system is used?

After a significant amount of research, our office chose what we believe to be the most sophisticated, technologically advanced, state-of-the-art decompression system in the world, the Dynatron DX2 Decompression Table.
 We also selected this decompression system due to its ability to treat discs in both the neck and the low back.



Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or even failed surgery.

Are there medical studies that document the effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?


Yes!  One study (click here) documented by MRI up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases and other studies reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved "good" to "excellent" results after spinal decompression therapy.

Are there conditions where Spinal Decompression Therapy is not indicated?

Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or “cages”) is contraindicated.  However, spinal decompression therapy after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery, can be performed.

Spinal decompression therapy also is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage.

How many will treatments will be needed and what is the cost? Can the costs be financed?

The specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination.  Based on current research (click here) , the best results have been achieved utilizing 20 sessions ($55.00 each) over a six to eight week period. Based on that most common protocol, the total cost of the spinal decompression sessions would only be $1,100.00...which is a small fraction of the $5,000+ amounts that some other doctors are charging. 

We offer CareCredit that will allow you to finance the entire cost and make 6 monthly payments with no interest.  Or if you need more time, you can set up repayment for up to 60 months.  To apply for financing online and get instant approval in advance, just go to
