The Ring Dinger®

In addition to treatment using the Gonstead System, Prather Chiropractic offers the Ring Dinger, a highly sought-after service that is not offered by many chiropractors.

What Is the Ring Dinger®?

Manual spinal neural decompression, also known as the Ring Dinger®, is a highly specialized method for relieving pressure on the spinal column by stretching the spine along the Y axis, straight up above the patient’s head.

This works by taking pressure off of the parts of the spinal column that cause pain, including any pinched nerves and herniated discs. It also stimulates the flow of oxygen, nutrients, and water through the spinal column up to the brain.
