I thought I was done...

I was concerned about the fact that my back hurt me whenever I lifted or carried anything…even the smallest bag or my purse. Eventually, I was in extreme pain when standing, sitting, or lying down. I was unable to sleep at night as well. After begging for x-rays and then an MRI through my primary care doctor, I was given a steroid dose pack and pain pills.

Since starting Decompression, I have achieved so many results! My pain was immediately reduced and I was able to sleep through the night. I even went on a ten day excursion to Israel with no pain!! This treatment has changed my life…I feel as though I was given another chance in life. I realize that I don’t have to spend my life dependent on pain medicine!

Dr. Stephen Moleski’s office is the place to start your healing process. They treat you royally and with superior care!

When I look to my future, I am excited! I am walking every day and making more plans than ever to enjoy more trips with good friends and loved ones! God used these people in a big way! Thank you, Dr. Moleski and staff! <3

I couldn't live the life I wanted to be living...

When I first came in to Dr. Moleski’s office, I was suffering from severe lower back pain, and I had disk issues.  The pain was so bad that I couldn’t play with my son or even pick him up.  I couldn’t live the life I wanted to be living.  I couldn’t play sports and had a very low quality of life.  

I had been to see other chiropractors, but the adjustments I got didn’t rid me of my pain.

Since starting Cold Laser Decompression treatments here, I have significantly less back pain! I have regained the ability and confidence to exercise and maintain my health.  This has changed my life in huge ways! I have improved productivity and enjoy a significantly improved quality of life!

To anyone trying to decide on care, I would say – don’t ask yourself if you can afford the treatment. Ask yourself if you can afford NOT to do the treatment and stay in pain.

When looking toward the future, I am ready to get back to “business” and continue to stay healthy through proper exercise.

Thank you, Dr. Moleski!

Don't Hesitate!

Before treatment in Dr. Moleski's office, I had constant lower back pain. The only time I was pain-free was while sleeping. During the last five years, I have been under care in Boston and here in Tallahassee. I have undergone back surgery and several years of physical, massage, and occupational therapy. After all the previous therapies, I still had back pain. Nothing would relieve my pain! Doctors even prescribed pain pills to give me relief. I refused to take medications!

After spinal decompression treatments, my back condition has improved. I have very little to no pain! I perform the prescribed exercises daily. I apply ice daily. If I am performing light household duties or traveling in the car, I wear my disc distractor belt for more support. I am very motivated to remain pain-free.

Since pain is no longer distracting me from work, my work performance has improved. I am able to do many more light duties around the house. I can work on projects, with some assistance; such as building a log cabin and yard work. I advise anyone with back pain not to hesitate! Give Dr. Moleski and his staff a chance! I am very pleased with the care I received.


It was a blessed day when I began my treatments with Dr. Moleski!!

I was ALWAYS in pain!

Before I came to Dr. Moleski’s office, I had pain and stiffness in my back, pain in both of my knees, and I was way overweight.


I was always in pain. I was always concerned about pain. My bladder control was poor. I was tired. I could not work more than 4-6 hours a day and I had to turn down work.


What stood out to me about Dr. Moleski’s office was that everyone was friendly, godly, and concerned about patients—not money.


After receiving treatment, I am 100% better! I lost over 20 pounds. My joints no longer hurt. My bladder control is good. I work 8-12 hours a day and no longer turn down work. My future looks fantastic!


If you are trying to decide on care, I say come to this office.


Thank you, Dr. Moleski. You are my answer to prayer.

Before beginning my treatment on the decompression unit, I was unable to walk normally. I was not able to bend at the waist, turn my head, or lift my legs more than a few inches off the ground without severe pain. The only position that provided relief was lying down. Bed rest for a stay-at-home mom with two small children is impossible. I tried over-the-counter medication and prescription pain meds. After consulting with Dr. Moleski, I was shocked to discover I had two bulging discs!

The news was scary, but hope emerged from Dr. Moleski and the treatment. I knew that if I had gone to another physician, they would have recommended surgery. After the treatments, I feel almost as good as before. The difference is night and day! If you are eligible for the treatment, by all means do it! It's worth it!

Don't give it a second thought

My mother referred me to Dr. Moleski. So I attended his peripheral neuropathy workshop and what he had to say just rang true in my head. I knew right then that he knew how to help me. I have peripheral neuropathy, severe back pain, and weight issues just to name a few things. The list goes on! I knew that I would be a challenge to Dr. Moleski, because I have a very sensitive system making me overreact to most anything. I have suffered for years.


I received a thorough consultation, neurological examination, metabolic evaluation, and lab studies. The doctor took his time to look my case over very closely. I really appreciated that.


He had to make tough recommendations with me, but I hung in there with their help. Dr. Moleski and Edye are great! They are so helpful and supportive…a real boost just to go in for an appointment. I really look forward to my visits.


Since I began care, I have lost weight, have needed less sick time off from work, and my pains are lessening day by day. It is so nice to actually be able to go shopping and really enjoy it! The simple things in life that most people take for granted, are truly appreciated when they are stolen from you by pain and sickness.


I am getting my life back!


If you are unsure about beginning care here, don’t give it a second thought. Your quality of life will be better under Dr. Moleski’s care.


I wholeheartedly recommend the care here.

I began to feel alive again...

Twenty years ago I injured my back and herniated two discs while severely straining nearly all of the muscles on the right side of my back.  I have lived in pain ever since. 


After numerous doctor visits, including two different chiropractic doctors, hospitalizations, examinations, consultations, and therapies, I was relegated to deal with the pain daily and take medications to mask the pain for the rest of my life.  This continued on for years. 


I began to feel as though all my strength was leaving and my body was shutting down.  I began to think I was approaching a point in my life, still in my thirties mind you, that I may not live to see my forties, fifties, and so on. I had nearly constant migraine headaches.  I knew I couldn’t give up as I am so young, and have a wife and children who need me. 


I began thinking and searching for what else I could do when I spoke with a co-worker who had many good things to say about Dr. Moleski. I decided to give chiropractic another try and scheduled an appointment.  I quickly found Dr. Moleski and his staff very friendly and truly concerned.  After learning the history, checking the senses and x-rays, Dr. Moleski felt he could help even if he couldn’t reverse all the damage (after all, it took nearly 20 years to get that way.) 


I began making regular visits and after a few months, I felt renewed energy levels and less pain. 


I began to feel alive again."

NO relief in sight, until...

Before beginning Spinal Decompression, I was in extreme
pain. It was unbearable! I could not stand up straight. I could
not move. There was no relief of the pain! Nothing I tried provided
any relief!

I decided to consult with Dr. Moleski about my lower back pain.
The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. So
I decided to go for it. After completing the treatment on the
decompression unit, I feel 100% better! I am able to work in the yard and play golf!...

Living on Motrin!

Before Spinal Decompression treatments, I felt an extreme amount of pain radiating down my left leg. I was miserable and almost unable to function. I was living on Motrin! Nothing helped. After the treatments, I am back to normal! I feel NO PAIN! Now, I can do almost anything within reason. My advice would be to try it. It worked for me!

Judy M.


When I consulted with Dr. Moleski concerning Decompression, I had severe pain in my left leg. On a scale of 1-10, it was a 10! I had tried icing my low back and over-the-counter drugs, but it did not ease the pain. Then, I got prescription pain medicine, which only did marginal good. After completing the treatment plan, my pain is a 1 on a scale of 1-10. I am very careful not to overdo it. My pain is still not 100% gone, but I have resumed normal activities. I recommend this treatment to anyone!

I had low back pain near my sacrum. I was very stiff and sore with any movement! My pain level was 4 out of 10. I tried stretching and Aleve to help with the pain. Once I began treatment, my pain began to disappear. I am no longer stiff and sore! I feel so much better without that steady level of pain. I have more flexibility in my low back! Now I am able to exercise! I would and have referred patients to use the Spinal Decompression Machine. I am so thankful for Dr. Moleski's help in getting me back on the road to good health!

I was in constant pain from my hips to my upper legs. Sometimes the pain was so great it would take me a good hour to get out of bed and start to work. I started with TOC, neurologists, pain clinics, and the world famous Mayo Clinic. The pain clinic only offered temporary relief. Nothing helped!

So, I decided to try spinal decompression. Since my treatment, I have no pain from my discs! I am living life again! I am playing golf again and my life is back to normal! If you have tried everything, don't do anything else until you have tried Cold Laser Decompression!

I began working for Dr. Moleski in February 2006. I quickly became very familiar with Spinal Decompression. I began to meet patients who were being decompressed and shared in the success that they were having with each treatment. I too have had back pain for about 14 years. The pain was inconsistent and very moderate. In March, I rolled over in bed and something awful happened to my back. I immediately got out of bed and my leg was causing me agonizing pain.

I consulted with Dr. Moleski concerning the pain I was enduring. I had three bulging discs (L3, L4, and L5) that were pressing down on the nerve roots to my right leg. Once Dr. Moleski reviewed the MRI results, he felt that the best treatment would be Cold Laser Decompression.

Once treatment began, I felt immediate results. Soon, the leg pain was gone. Completely gone! I am so glad that I had the Spinal Decompression Procedure. My back and leg have never felt better!

Before my treatments, I was in very bad shape! I had three bad discs and a pinched sciatic nerve. My feet felt like needles were poking them. I was in a lot of pain. I did not take pain medication because of another unrelated medical condition. After my treatments, I feel about 90% better. My pain has greatly decreased. Dr. Moleski and his staff are very professional, well organized, and truly focused on the patient.

Due to a football injury, I had lower back pain on and off since college. On a scale of one to ten, my pain level had become a 9.5. I began taking pain pills, rehab and getting regular adjustments. I knew I needed to do something else to get relief.

I decided to have the Spinal Decompression treatment. After the course of treatments, I became active again without pain. I would advise everyone needing the treatment to begin as soon as possible so they can get back to living life.

Happy, Relaxed, and Pain-Free!

Before beginning treatment at Dr. Moleski's office, I was in constant pain. I was grumpy and irritable. It took a lot of energy to even try to have a social life. Medication did not help to alleviate the pain. I had given up and prepared to spend the rest of my life with severe back pain.

The day I began treatment, I felt instant relief! It was amazing! Almost as though a miracle had occurred! Today, I am happy, relaxed and pain-free! I am eager to enjoy life. I sleep much better and have more energy. I feel more like socializing.

In short, my life has greatly improved since the pain went away. My advice to you is to let Dr. Moleski review your situation. If he recommends the treatment to you, do it! I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Moleski and his staff! They are very warm and caring and excellent at what they do! My only regret: I wish I had seen Dr. Moleski sooner!

...Don't Give Up Hope...

I was suffering from severe pain radiating down my left leg. Each time I coughed or sneezed, I felt pain in my low back. Walking and standing up straight was almost impossible. I could not even lie in bed! My wife was awoken each night as I attempted to sleep in the bed.

I tried to take Aleve, Tylenol, and Darvocet to help with the pain. However, the medicines did not help to ease the pain. Nothing helped! As a last resort, I decided to undergo the Spinal Decompression procedure.

After a few treatments, my low back pain ceased. I did not feel any relief in my left leg until about the twentieth visit. After a full forty treatments, I am now pain free! Life is beginning to get back to normal now! I am able to walk for exercise, work around the house and garden, play with the dog, and work for a full eight hours and not experience pain. My advice to someone with a similar problem would be to not expect overnight results. Don't give up! Stay with the program!...

About 20 years ago I had a fall from some steps that injured some of the discs in my back. I had issues where periodically my leg would go numb when I stood for very long periods of time. Then about 3 years ago, I had a fall when my leg went numb and I was dismounting from our motorcycle. I had an MRI and discovered that the L1,2,3,4 and 5 were all damaged. It hurt really badly, I was unable to do the simplest movements that everyone takes for granted. Some of those simple things like getting up and down, leaning forward when I brushed my teeth, washed my hands, or eating at a dining table were impossible to do without pain.

The only relief I got was from very strong pain pills and muscle relaxers. I didn't want to become addicted to them so I stopped taking them and just suffered with the pain.

Since my Spinal Decompression treatment with Dr. Moleski I have seen a definite improvement. The difference is like night and day in my view. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who needs this kind of relief and meets the qualifications for it. Thank God for people like Dr. Moleski, Edye and Shelley. They actually care about you, your health and well being.

I can see everything clearly now!

Before I started Spinal Decompression with Dr. Moleski, I was in pain every day, although some days were worse than others. It was very difficult to sit, and my hips would get very sore. Other days it was hard to stand, and I wouldn't be able to straighten up and stand straight.

Everyday I wondered if I was going to be able to get out of bed or how long I would last until my back would give out. I was taking Aleve every day, which helped to alleviate some of the pain but not all of it. I was also taking Naproxen, Vicodin, or Percocet when the pain was really bad, and even tried Celebrex and Mobic when the pain was at it's worst. Every day was a struggle.

After starting treatment with Dr. Moleski, my mental clarity is amazing! It is no longer difficult to find the right words to say and my creativity has increased by leaps and bounds. It's as if a fog has left my brain and I can see everything clearly now! My pain has GREATLY decreased! It was a big decision to have Spinal Decompression done, but it was certainly well worth it.

I feel like a new person! Dr. Moleski and his staff are truly concerned about their patients. It was a long journey to find a doctor that would actually listen to my concerns and not just focus on one aspect of my condition. Dr. Moleski took the time to look at the big picture and saw me as a person who needed helping, not just a patient. You can tell that he is there to care for and help others, not just to get the job done - that's what sets him apart from other clinics and doctors. THANK YOU!!

I Was Wrong!

Before I began spinal decompression therapy, I felt very skeptical. I had been previously advised by a neurosurgeon to have surgery on my low back. I decided against the surgery. I wondered how this type of treatment could be enough to correct my low back condition. I had a mental stigma against the chiropractic profession. I was coping with the pain to avoid surgery. I thought the only cure would be surgery - I was wrong!

Since my treatments, I am able to do things without pain. I have not felt this good in twenty years! I am very thankful for this opportunity! I would advise anyone with pain to keep an open mind. Trust in Dr. Moleski and his practice. Thank you, Doctor Moleski!

In March 2005, I started having severe back pain. I went to Dr. Hutchins in Perry, Florida. Dr. Hutchins told me that, if he could not help me with three adjustments, then he couldn't help me. After the three adjustments I was no better, and Dr. Hutchins said I was looking at back surgery, which included a steel rod down my back and steel screws in my back.

I chose to go to my family doctor, Gina Sapp, ARNP, in Perry, Florida. She treated me with steroids and pain pills. Dr. Sapp started trying (in March) to get me an appointment with the pain clinic in Chiefland and also the pain clinic in Tallahassee for an epidural shot. It took until August 2nd to get me an appointment for a consultation in Tallahassee and, in the meantime, I heard about a new treatment (non-surgical spinal decompression) at Dr. Moleski's office. I got an appointment for August 2nd at 9:50am and also had an appointment at the Tallahassee Pain Clinic at 2:00pm. I filled both appointments, but only for a consultation at the pain clinic. I had my first treatment with Dr. Moleski August 2nd and I've completed 20 treatments. My back is so much better. I was taking pain medication every four to six hours and was still in pain. After my treatments with Dr. Moleski, I only take a pain pill occasionally, and only if I overdo something and get extra tired. Thanks and God Bless you, Dr. Moleski.

It's Great to Be Able to Enjoy Life Again!

I was referred to Dr. Moleski by a friend. I had low back pain that would run down my legs. This condition affected my ability to enjoy the normal activities of life. A long car ride was sure to give me bad leg pains.

I like to be active and this was really slowing me down.

Dr. Moleski started non-surgical spinal decompression procedures. This is medical equipment designed to work on the spinal discs without needles, surgery, or medications. The procedure was painless and worked wonders for my low back and leg pains.

I can now ride in a car and not regret it. It's great to be able to enjoy the routine daily things of life again.

I would definitely recommend this care for anyone suffering from low back and leg pain who wants to avoid more invasive medical procedures.

About three and a half years ago my back and leg pain began. The smallest amount of gardening and yard work was very painful. I could not even pick-up 20 lbs without pain. Traveling became unbearable. I would have to stop for a while. The pain became so bad I just wanted to cry. The only relief I felt was from using a massage chair two to three times a day. I also relied heavily on over-the-counter pain medicines to give me some relief for at the most an hour.

My pain became so bad that I was unable to wake up in the mornings without pain. I decided to consult with Dr. Moleski concerning Spinal Decompression Treatments. Based on my husband's history with back and leg surgeries, I was skeptical at first. My husband and I thought that if this procedure could work without any surgical procedures, it was worth a try.

If I could get any relief without going "under the knife," I would be happy. Once the treatments began, I progressively began to feel relief. After two weeks of treatment, the pain was gone! I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be completely pain-free! To date, I am pain-free and it is wonderful!
