    I have a couple people who are doing well with the decompression program and getting good results, however, they have informed me that they are ”more sore” getting off the table and then it settles down after an hour or so. I’ve reduced the pounds of pull and switched programs from 4 to 2 and it is better but still worse following the treatment. I’ve reduced the pounds of pull down to about 20 percent of their body weight. Should I reduce it more or leave it alone since overall they are improving. Its just that they always felt better getting off the table in the first four or five treatments and now they aren’t.

      Options you have are to ice them following the decompression treatment, change the program or brace them for 1 hour following their treatment with a simple back brace. It is normal for the progression of treatment for people to be sore but not significantly sore or painful. Also be sure that it is not muscle guarding as that would indicate too much weight. If you find a protocol that is working don’t just keep ramping the weight up. If it is working leave it alone.

      Any other questions feel free to call me.

    I’m wondering if he is experiencing Centralization.

      I am traveling abroad at the moment and missed this post. In my opinion based on what you are describing that is exactly what your patient is experiencing. Pain centralization is a normal part of the healing process and should encourage your patient that he is going in the right direction. At least that has been my experience.

      I will be gone until the 19th, training fellow doctors in Singapore and Dubai on spinal decompression with the Hill DT table. The world is catching on that we have a great tool to assist them with their patients and they are eager to implement the use of the table. I will update you all when I get back.

    I have a 75 year old man under care that I had mentioned in a previous post. After a five decompression sessions, his foot numbness is better and he is really happy. However, he has been noticing a significant increase in his lower back pain. He weighs 275 pounds and has had previous back surgery.(laminectomy, no fusion or hardware in his spine) I have been pulling at 55lbs on program 4 with a five degree angle. He is on the table now and I just lowered the pull to 45 lbs. and put the angle to 0 degrees with the same program 4. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated as I am still quite new at this.

    We’ve been doing decompression for two weeks and it’s going great. It’s one thing to hear about people getting results and it’s quite another to experience them, and in only a very short time. I just started this 75 year old man with several lower back surgeries; and after his second treatment he started talking to a waiting room full of people about how he went to bed last night for the first time in 10 years without a numb leg. He then went on to tell them that he didn’t want me to know, because I might charge him more if I found out. They all started laughing, but what he didn’t know is that I was listening and that one of the people in the waiting room was going in for her trial. It was an unsolicited testimonial….very cool…..

      Welcome to the world of results based decompression! Keep up the great work. The longer you utilize the Hill DT table the more you are going to hear these stories.

      Dr. Paquin, the story above really brings the entire history of the Hill DT table full circle for us. We knew that we could build the best decompression table, and through years and years of hard work and testing, together with Hill DT Solutions we have answered the call. Dr. Burkhart would agree, that these stories are the reason why we KNOW and not just believe the package that Hill DT Solutions delivers works, ”time after time, after time…”

      Thank you for believing and now KNOWING. Cheers to your success! – Benjamin Hill
