Jeff S. Williams, D.C. - Amarillo Chiropractor

We feel that we have found a way and a technique that allows us to get better, more permanent and durable results for our patients in a more inexpensive way than before.

Jeff S. Williams, D.C. and staff member Linda Garcia recently received notification that they had passed the certifying examination of the “Kennedy Decompression Technique” course and earned the designation “Certified Practitioner” in spinal decompression therapy.

The certification course work was taught by the foremost expert in spinal decompression, Jay Kennedy, D.C., who has unparalleled experience and expertise in the field having treated many thousands of patients over the last 18 years while using a variety of decompression systems.
The topics in the comprehensive syllabus covered a wide variety of subjects including proper patient selection, patient positioning, treatment time, amount of force, degrees of angle and included 12 hours of online course work, a two-day “hands-on” training session in Dallas, TX, followed by the certification examination.

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, traction based treatment outcome for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and low back. During the procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum effect allows the disc component – that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc – to be pulled back within the disc.

Dr.Williams said, “Amarillo Pain and Accident Chiropractic Clinic is absolutely dedicated to providing quality care. We are patient oriented and absolutely goal driven. The Kennedy certification course certainly honed our skills. While we have been very pleased with our high success rates on difficult disc cases, the knowledge we gained in the process of becoming certified practitioners will definitely be of benefit to our patients. We feel that we have found a way and a technique that allows us to get better, more permanent and durable results for our patients in a more inexpensive way than before."

Dr. Williams added, “We've seen too many doctors place emphasis on the type of decompression system they use and too little emphasis on developing their clinical skills. The Kennedy certification course teaches that high success rates don’t occur by pushing a button on a machine, they occur because of the skill and expertise of the doctor. It's expensive and time consuming to get the certification for yourself and for your staff but I felt that it was a great investment in our patients and in their results.”
