Spinal Decompression Therapy in Cary


Staker Chiropractic Center is one of only a few offices in the state equipped with this state of the art technology. Spinal Decompression Therapy is a cost-effective, non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option that was developed by a team of back specialists including neurosurgeons, orthopedists, physiatrists, osteopaths, chiropractors, neurologists, and physical therapists.


Our Spinal Decompression Therapy Protocol is designed by North American Medical Corp. It is an innovative approach for the relief of lower back syndromes, including:


  • Herniated or bulging discs

  • Degenerative disc disease

  • Posterior facet syndrome

  • Sciatica

  • Acute or chronic back pain

The Accu-SPINA™ delivers Spinal DecompressionTherapy protocols, a broad range of treatment protocols that mimic many conventional physical therapy regimens. We know from Spinal DecompressionTherapy practitioners that the primary objective is to elicit different levels of mobilization and manipulation to develop strength and endurance, range of motion and flexibility as a result of low back pain. The treatment parameters will vary according to each condition or pathology being treated. Each condition has specific goals and desired outcomes of therapy and the treatment parameters are individualized accordingly. The treatment regimen can also be modified according to patient response and changing needs throughout treatment.


As with physical therapy regimens the SPINA System™ line provides a passive exercise component and can move the patient in different body positions. The Accu-SPINA™ is unique because it offers the clinician the ability to utilize three separate waveforms: sinusoidal, triangular or square. It also produces a unique patent pending secondary waveform called oscillation, which is intended for utilization where proprioceptor firing response reduction may be especially warranted. The treatment delivery method allows for highly specific mobilization or distraction of the targeted spinal segment to improve functional performance of the patient. Fully computer-directed, the treatment regimen can be duplicated for a full rehabilitative course over a standard 30 day protocol.


With each Accu-SPINA™ session, micro-trauma is introduced into the body. This challenges the supporting muscle and ligament tissue to become restructured and retoned, in effect providing for neuromuscular re-education.

The variety of Accu-SPINA™ in therapeutic force treatment applications allow utilization of multiple wave forms offering multiple ways to manipulate spinal structures.


The primary waveforms are directed to a specific dysfunctional spinal segment. These waveforms are directed to the vertebra and used for mobilization. These waveforms may also be used to mobilize a facet joint (posterior facet syndrome), strengthen the lumbar spine and relieve pressure on a nerve, or promote the influx of oxygen, blood flow, and nutrients into the affected area.

The secondary waveform is oscillation. The effects of oscillation are based on antidotal evidence that has been analyzed and is ongoing for research. This waveform is determined to affect the proprioceptor firing response. This may help prevent accommodation, guarding and muscle spasming, as well as enable a more effective treatment to occur.
