Imagine, after having experienced unrelenting pain in your leg and foot for over two years, that it could be gone in a month without surgery. That is what I experienced through spinal decompression from Dr. H. Carol Sanders-Shochat, chiropractor.

I had experienced the pain of sciatica for the past five years.  At first, it would come on for a week or two then go away for a few weeks then return for another period of time.  Time with the pain gradually increased until it was with me more than not and then it was there all the time.

For the two years before I found Dr. Carol, I could stand at my work bench for about an hour before the pain became so unbearable that I had to sit in a recliner for an hour or so to get it to lessen enough that I could return for another hour.  I had tried all available remedies, I thought, and was ready to try surgery as a last ditch attempt to live a normal life.

I approached this treatment with a great deal of skepticism because it "sounded too good to be true." But in this case it was true. I was nervous about the investment in both time and money but desperation led me to try it.

The treatment has worked beyond my wildest expectations!  After about ten treatments I was feeling much better and I have now gone three months without any sciatic pain.

I recommend this treatment to all my friends with similar symptoms. Spinal decompression has changed my life from misery to pleasure.

"I've had chronic back and neck pain for several years.  I have seen various chiropractors and feel better but the effects were only temporary. I researched spinal decompression therapy and was very impressed with Dr. H. Carol Sanders-Shochat, chiropractor.  She did a careful exam and told me I was an excellent candidate for spinal decompression and cold light laser therapy.  After a few treatments, I noticed a huge improvement.  My back and neck are feeling so much better now.  Thanks Dr. Carol!"

David Guerra, DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery)


I firmly believe your care made it possible for me to avoid back surgery. When we first met, every simple task involving bending (brushing my teeth, shaving my legs tying my shoes, gardening, cleaning, turning over in bed, and many more bending activities to numerous to mention) was extremely painful in my lower back.  Now after my treatments with you I can emphatically say, no more pain to simple acts of daily life! Thank you so much for your expertise and care.

"My progress has been incredible. I have bulging discs in my low back with a lot of pain. Since being on the spinal decompression table the pain has decreased tremendously. I feel like a million bucks. Thank you Dr. Carol".

-Rick Smolic (owner of Tropical Kingdom in Tucson)

"I injured my back doing construction. Rather than collect disability, I was constantly taking pain killers and anti inflammatory drugs so I could continue working on the job. When I saw the ad for treating back pain with Spinal Decompression Therapy system, I was skeptical at first, but curious. I decided to give it a try and to my surprise, it worked like nothing I had ever tried before. After just one month of treatment, I felt stronger than I had in years and had the joy of throwing away all of those painkilling drugs. One of the happiest days in my life is when I discovered there was something that could cure my back pain. That something was your Spinal Decompression Therapy. I cannot thank you enough for helping me and my family."
