Spinal Decompression Testimonials



Back Pain


Herniated Disc/Sciatica


"I have been a patient of Dr.Katz for many years. After attempting to lift a 50 lb rice bag, I herniated my disc and was in excruciating pain and could barely walk. Dr. Katz treated me with Spinal Decomprassion and elecric muscle stim. After 4 days, I am walking and in very little pain. He treated me at 8:45 PM on the first day and 2X/day for the first two days!!!! Truly a compassionate doctor."



"I live in California and was visiting family/friends in Chicago en route to a trip to France. Before leaving, I developed low back and left leg pain that continued to worsen. Having had one session of Spinal Decompression Therapy in California, I was looking for a doctor who could do the same. I was referred to Dr.Katz and called him immediately. He got me in the same day and after an examination, he placed me on the decompression table. Well, 3 visits later, I am feeling so much better. I am ready to go on my trip. Thank you Dr.Katz for helping me, getting me in so quickly and for seeing me daily up to  and including my departure day. I have told all my friends about you. Highly recommended."

"I injured the disc in my lower back one day, had Spinal Decompression Therapy the next day and was able to resume my exercises the following morning. I felt better immediately after the first treatment. I highly recommend anyone with a similar problem to call Dr.Katz to get this therapy."

"I have a disc herniation in my lower back and had 40 Spinal Decompression Therapy treatments, with some success, by another chiropractor. He was very expensive and I had to travel quite a distance to see him. I called Dr.Katz and asked for the same treatment. He explained to me that a different position on the table might be more beneficial. So instead of lying on my back, I was on my stomach. This change has made a huge difference and I am getting much better results. The pull on the machine is less.The time of treatment is less. I am really pleased. Dr.Katz is doing a great job. I am looking forward to be healthy for many years to come!!"

"I have had pain in my lower back for 7 months. It was really bad. After one session of Spinal Decompression Therapy, I woke the next morning with no pain. The sessions were very comfortable. I highly recommend anyone with any type of lower back issue to contact Dr.Katz and have this treatment."

"I am very happy to recommend Dr. Katz. I have gone to Dr. Katz for many years, but recently I came to see him after an injury sustained while on a strenuous mountain hike. I had significant back, hip and upper left leg pain throughout the day and night, most acute when sitting or lying down or trying to dress myself. After 3 sessions of spinal decompression therapy over 4 days, my range of motion was back to normal (50% improved after the first session and within normal limits by the end of the third session) and my daytime back pain was gone. Dr. Katz also taught me spinal stabilization exercises, and the remaining nighttime pain resolved itself within the following week. The last time I injured my back 20 years ago, the recovery took months, but with spinal decompression, my pain was gone in days. Quite remarkable."

"Whenever my back acts up, Dr. Katz is my first call. Lately, he has relieved my lower back pain with the use of a spinal decompression therapy. The results have been quite positive and the pain has abated considerably after just a couple of treatments -- from being unable to bend at the waist, to almost total flexibility. Dr. Katz is cool, calm, efficient, reachable and effective."
Dean R 

"I had a very bad back and leg pain,so I went to Dr.Katz. After reading my MRI, he told me I had a disc problem. He worked with me on the decompression table and stayed with me during the whole treatment. He was very astute and caring during the many treatments that I had. He was extremely concerned as I am 81 years old. In general, I am a very active person. He took me on time and was extremely curtious. I would recommend him highly to help with body pain. I feel good now, as I am pain free."

"I am an 85 year old woman who suffered from back pain until I began Spinal Decompression Therapy with Dr.Katz. I had 6 weeks of this therapy and now have a comfortable sleeping position and considerably less pain. Dr.Katz recommended a decompression belt to maintain spinal decompression which I wear at home. He listened to my symptoms and explained the necessary therapy clearly. I am now in Florida for the winter and Dr. Katz researched the name of a local FL chiropractor who I may see for therapy as needed. Dr.Katz was a pleasure to work with. He is obviously concerned, professional in his manner and effective in results. 85 is a good year! I would highly recommend Dr.Katz."

Stenosis Lumbar


"Due to spinal stenosis, I could not stand for longer than 10 minutes before having to sit down. After being treated with Spinal Decompression Therapy, I am now able to stand for 45 minutes!! I am doing exercises and have a decompression belt to help me further in my recovery. Thank you Dr.Katz"

"I came to see Dr.Katz because of the pain that I have due to spinal stenosis. I had to sit frequently when walking and was in constant pain. After only a few weeks I am able to stand/walk without sitting for much longer periods of time and I am feeling much better. His treatments of Spinal Decompression Therapy, electric muscle stim and exercises raelly helped me."

Arthritis Lumbar


"I have been seeing Dr.Katz for low back, hip and leg pain that has come on as a result of running. He explained to me that the pain is due to the compression and treated me with stretches on his equipment along with exercises. Over the past 2 weeks my pain, which has been present for 2 years, is much better and the past few days has been completely gone!!! I am feeling great. I would recommend him to anyone in need of therapy, but in particular to my fellow runners.

Neck Pain


"I am 87 years old and woke up with a severe pain in my neck. I saw Dr.Katz on Friday morning and after an examination he did Spinal Decompression. I returned in the afternoon for another treatment, then on Saturday as well. By Sunday my pain was completely gone!"

Herniated Disc Cervical

"I developed an excruciating pain in my neck where I could not move my head from side to side. Having had great success with Dr.Katz treating my lower back pain, I decided to call him about this new problem. He suggested that I have Spinal Decompression Therapy. After the first treatment, which was lesss than 15 minutes, I felt 50% better. The next day we did another treatment and I felt just about 100% improvement. After the 3rd treatment, I was pain free with full movement. I don't know what this treatment does, but it surely worked for me!!!!"
Sherwin S


"After waking up with my head tilted more than 15 degrees to the right side, I called Dr.Katz and he did Spinal Decompression Therapy. After the first treatment I had better range of motion and after second treatment I had full range of motion and no pain. I felt so good that we actually cancelled what would have been the third and final treatment. In two days Dr.Katz was able to help me with 100% results! I am thrilled and would recommend this treatment to anyone with any type of neck pain."
Chris J


"I have known Dr Katz for a number of years and recently on a long road trip managed to "crick" my neck - which produced extremely painful neck and upper back spasms. Upon my return from the said road trip Dr. Katz was able to fit me into his busy schedule. Post a very comprehensive exam Dr Katz correctly diagnosed a compression injury in my neck, and his course of action included Spinal Decompression and then manipulation. As a result of only three treatments I am now pain free and able to undertake normal activities. What I particularly like about Dr Katz's approach is his willingness to listen and fully understand the concern before taking any action. He is a consumate professional and I highly recommend his practice to anyone needing chiropractic help."

"I did a stupid thing and lifted a 700lb entertainment center with very little help. Shortly thereafter, I developed a sharp, very severe pain in my neck that radiated into the top of my shoulder. It was so bad that I literally had to pull my hair just to lift my head off the pillow and I could not turn to the left side. Dr.Katz examined me and then he explained that I had herniated my cervical disc. He prescribed traction and put me on his Spinal Decompression table. The treatment was very comfortable and afterward I was able to turn my head about 50% more and the pain was alot less. After the second treatment, I was able to turn my head all the way and I feel great. I highly recommend Dr.Katz and this treatment to anyone with a neck injury. The results are fantastic!!!"

"I have been going to Chiropractors since early 1980. Dr. Katz took over for my original Dr. when he moved. I have abused my body through years of sports and daily exercising. I am now paying for it in constant pain. I have terrible neck and upper back pain. Dr. Katz told me about the Spinal Decompression Therapy that he offers. I have now had three of five original treatments and the pain is gone. No more pain shooting down my arms. The therapy along with adjustments is my solution. Thank you for your knowledge and for helping me."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Katz for over fifteen years. Having played sports my entire life, I have periodically had the need to get specialized treatment to resolve severe back, joint, and muscular pain issues. Recently, I was having severe neck and back pain and I could not turn my head; a serious problem for an avid golfer! As in the past, Dr. Katz took the time to throughly evaluate my situation and the best treatment approach. Dr. Katz used Spinal Decompression Therapy and after one treatment I felt 50% better; and after the second treatment I was able to turn just about all the way! Now, on the third day, I feel great and am playing golf again! Even if you call at the last minute, which I have typically done, Dr.Katz will always find time to fit you into his schedule. I have been recommending friends to Dr. Katz for years and I highly recommend him to you too!

“I came to see Dr.Katz with severe neck and right arm pain. I could not sleep and I was having tremendous difficulty concentrating at work. After he examined his findings and the course of treatment, I knew that I was in the right place.  I was a bit apprehensive but he was so patient and kind during my treatment that I grew more and more confident that he could help me. I started to feel better within a week and now 3 weeks later, I am pain free!! Thank you Dr.Katz for everything, I am eternally grateful."
