About Dr. Castanet
Dr. Craig Castanet graduated from Palmer-West Chiropractic College in 1986. He has 35 years of clinical experience; including 18 years in an orthopedic, physical medicine, and physical therapy clinic, participating in the treatment of more than 40,000 patients. He also dedicated time each week, for 5 years, in a neurosurgical practice, learning surgical indications and procedures. Unlike most chiropractors, he has always had a decidedly “medical orientation”. He has excellent professional relationships with pain physicians, orthopedists, and neurosurgeons because, sometimes, injections and surgery are appropriate.
He has always sought the best, newest tools and methods in patient treatment. His exceptional interest and competency in treating neck and back pain derive, in part, from his personal experience of suffering from sciatica for 6 years, previously. Such chronic pain provides the kind of insight and empathy that books, alone, cannot.

A Chiropractor in Decatur GA with unmatched medical experience
While difficult neck and back pain is a very common problem in medicine, and diagnostic imaging, e.g. MRI’s and x-rays usually reveal the likely causes of such pain, and these causes are almost always COMPRESSIVE in nature and description, non-surgical providers, e.g. chiropractors and physical therapists, don’t directly treat these problems by decompressing them. That is why so many patients get modest or slow, or no improvement in their spinal pain. In fact, for both chiropractors and physical….
Dr. Castanet explains the simple pathogenesis of spinal pain in this video. If you understand how, and why, spinal pain starts and progresses, you’ll make a better choice about the treatments you choose. Unfortunately, most health care professionals practice their specialty with a predictable bias in favor of whatever they were trained to do, and whatever insurance companies reward. I guarantee that if you listen to Dr. Castanet, you’ll be convinced that his explanation of spinal pain makes the most sense. And, his advice about the most appropriate, effective treatment for spinal pain makes the most sense. Dr. Castanet has never been wedded to a myopic approach to spinal treatments. He is an independent thinker, has worked in more clinical specialties than other providers, and has chosen the most effective treatment for neck and back pain. And if an even better treatment arrives in the future, he’ll embrace that.

And effectively treating these patients will improve pain, burning, tightness, weakness and other symptoms felt in these regions.
Spinal Stenosis– This is narrowing of the spinal canal in your neck or low back. In the low back it can cause pinching of the nerves which may then cause pain down your buttocks or legs. In the neck it may cause problems with your spinal cord, affecting your finger dexterity or walking problems, e.g. uncoordinated walking.
Why Necks and Backs Hurt… And What are the Benefits of Disc Decompression Therapy for Neck pain and Back Pain?
Almost all back and neck pain is caused by COMPRESSION of discs, nerves and joints. We have all sorts of terms for this compressive process, and you may have seen these terms used in your MRI or x-ray report. These include herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, facet arthropathy, ligamentum flavum hypertrophy, foraminal stenosis, central stenosis, disc protrusion, disc extrusion, spondylosis, etc. These all comprise a slowly, progressive, degenerative compression of your spine.
