The DOC Decompression Table manufactured by Pivotal Health Solutions has revolutionized chiropractic care by offering multiple advantages for both the doctor and patient. What does DOC stand for, and how can it help you to achieve greater patient outcomes and more revenue in your practice?

DOC is short for Decompression of Choice and practitioners and patients alike report that you can truly “Feel the Difference.” What makes the DOC Decompression Table stand out from similar types of tables, and why do doctors and patients love it?

Doctors love it because it is versatile. The table not only treats patients in both prone and supine positions, but it also allows treatment in three dimensions including flexion, extension, rotation and lateral flexion to gain maximum therapeutic effectiveness. With such a wide variety of treatment options and positions, the DOC fits the patient, instead of the patient having to fit the table.


It’s easy to use. Preloaded treatment protocols and an automated control with a digital command center makes the user experience simple, clean, and effective. Legacy 6 and 5 K Pattern pre-programmed decompression protocols make your table ready to treat a wide range of patient conditions at the touch of a full-color screen.

Advanced chiropractic care. Whether the patient’s pain is chronic or acute, a built in Disc Angle Level Indicator allows practitioners to quickly target specific vertebral discs for accurate and effective treatments right at your fingertips. For challenging cases or conditions that require advanced treatment, The DOC Decompression Table also allows you to create your own fully customized protocols to best meet the needs of your patients.

An affordable choice with great ROI. Chiropractors can recoup the cost of the DOC Decompression Table quickly because incorporating decompression therapy into your clinic or facility means new referrals, more patients, and ultimately more profit. It’s a game changer that offers a whole new level of service to already successful practices and it is a real benefit to clinicians looking to add a cash service to help patients with herniated, bulging, and degenerative discs. In addition, due to its adjustable design, the DOC Table may qualify for the Section 44 Tax Credit under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please consult your tax professional for more information.

It works! The DOC Decompression Table delivers incredible results where other treatments often fail to respond with standard chiropractic care. Patients receive consistent treatment because doctors can adjust the table to accommodate each individual patient resulting in more mobility and less pain within a few treatments.

Patients love the DOC

On the flip side, patients who are experiencing pain the loss of mobility also love the DOC Decompression table because they appreciate a comfortable and pain-free experience.

Patients love it because they can feel the difference. Patients may feel an immediate sense of relief and the sensation of pressure releasing as they are intermittently stretched and relaxed during treatments.

Treatments are non-invasive and nonsurgical. There’s no prodding or poking involved with decompression treatments using the DOC Table. Patients do not need to remove clothing, nor do they need to undergo surgery for pain relief. In addition, most treatments are short in length (30 minutes or less) and do not become a forever procedure that requires repeated visits to the chiropractor for months or even years.

Comfort is king. Many patients who experience acute pain are not able to lay flat comfortably. The DOC Decompression Table allows doctors to set the table into a patient-friendly position that supports antalgic positioning to make treatments comfortable and pain-free, so that treatments may begin right away.

Safety first. Every DOC Decompression Table is equipped with a Patient Safety Switch that allows the patient to stop the treatment in the event of pain, spasm, or discomfort. In addition, the table comes standard with automated computer controls that eliminate pinch points on the table, or tripping hazards such as foot pedals.

It works! Decompression therapy is effective and can dramatically affect pain associated with spinal injuries and many other painful conditions. Nonsurgical spinal decompression involves stretching the spine to ease pressure on the affected discs, which can help to relieve pain. It was developed to effectively treat sciatica, spinal injuries, bulging or herniated discs, and deteriorated spinal joints.
