The Ring Dinger®

In addition to Dr. Prather's skilled application of comprehensive joint manipulation, he may use the Ring Dinger procedure as part of the patient's treatment protocol.

What Is the Ring Dinger®?

Y-Axis Non-Surgical Spinal Neural Decompression, also known as the Ring Dinger®, is a specialized method of High Velocity, Low Amplitude Manual Manipulation (HVLAMM) against gravity induced compressive stress.

HVLAMM works to relieve pain by amplifying proprioception.  Proprioception is your brain’s sense of movement and position in space.  Dysfunctional joint motion (dyskinesis) causes a deafferentation of proprioception in your central nervous system.  This means your brain has a decreased sense of your body’s movement and motor control.  Your brain reacts to dyskinesis by sending pain signals to effected areas.  Chronic dyskinesis leads to degenerative joint sequelae such as spondylosis, spinal stenosis, balance disorders, and osteoarthritis of the extremities.

The Ring Dinger® was developed by world-renowned chiropractor Dr. Gregory Johnson in Houston, Texas.

Dr. Johnson has pioneered this technique, including candidate screening procedures, but says that “anyone who is living, breathing, and moving in gravity can benefit from the Ring Dinger®,” and we agree.
