Important Facts About Dr. Randall Roth, DC and Spinal Decompression Therapy
"Back surgery should be a last option since it permanently alters and weakens the supporting structural anatomy of and around the spine. This is especially true when one considers not only the failure rate of back surgery, but also the effectiveness of non-surgical alternatives."

About Dr. Roth
Hello, my name is Dr. Randall Roth, DC. I am a 1990 graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO, where I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Human Biology, and a Doctorate in Chiropractic. Prior to attending Logan College, I was a fitness trainer.
My interest in Chiropractic, health, and nutrition began at the age of 12 when I was diagnosed with Scoliosis (Curvature of the Spine).
After I was evaluated by an Orthopedist and underwent physical therapy, my parents weren't provided much hope that my condition could be corrected. In fact, they were told that the only thing that could be done was to "wait and watch" to see if my condition worsened. If the condition worsened, the treatment options might include wearing a back brace, or a surgery where rods are attached to the spine. Fortunately, they didn't like the options, and decided to take me to a Doctor of Chiropractic.
This turned out to be a life-changing event for me. My Scoliosis was corrected, and I was able to enjoy football and other sports throughout the remainder of my school years. As a result of the successful outcomes I received from my treatment, I decided to pursue a career in the field that helped me. In addition, my father and brothers chose to become Doctors of Chiropractic, as well.
A few years after starting my first practice, my father and I founded the first multidisciplinary Medical/Chiropractic facility in Central Arkansas, where we employed medical doctors and physical therapists to work with us. This was the only practice of its kind locally where medical doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists utilized a team approach to treat challenging musculoskeletal conditions.
Over the years, I realized spinal disc problems often presented challenges that conventional medicine, physical therapy, or even chiropractic couldn't overcome, in some cases. Then, I learned about a spinal disc treatment that was developed by a neurosurgeon to help people avoid back surgery.
Spinal Decompression Therapy - No Drugs, Shots, or Surgery!
Spinal Decompression Therapy has been shown to provide good to excellent results in 86% of patients with ruptured intervertebral discs. In addition to years of experience treating thousands of patients with disc related conditions, I have received training in the nationally recognized Spinal Decompression Certification program. I took this revolutionary treatment and combined it with other existing procedures and modalities, such as Cold Laser Therapy, to provide an advanced, non-surgical, non-invasive treatment program for back pain. This multifaceted approach has increased the success rate patients experience beyond the typical results experienced with spinal decompression therapy alone. I estimate that approximately 95% of disc herniation patients have an excellent response to treatment.
Patients from all over the state and from out-of-state often come for treatment after hearing results from other patients. Many of these these patients were told they needed back or neck surgery, but decided to undergo my non-surgical disc treatment instead. Why? Because they didn't want to deal with the possible complications or failure of back surgery they observed with other people.
Common conditions I treat with Spinal Decompression include disc bulges/herniations, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy (resulting from nerve root compression), weakness in leg or arm muscles, and restless leg syndrome resulting from radiculopathy.
