We have been providing spinal decompression in San Francisco for over 8 years now with the DRX9000. During this time we have helped over a thousand herniated disc patients return to more normal lives. We have also learned which cases to accept and which to refuse. We only accept patients we feel we have a really good chance of helping.
Typically, a patient will present with low back pain or neck pain that simply is not responding to conventional treatments such as physical therapy, chiropractic, cortisone, acupuncture, or medications. They have tried everything.
We will review the case and the MRI/ x-rays and medical records, perform our own examination…then decide if we will accept the case.
If we do accept the case we expect a favorable outcome.
Often times the lumbar or cervical disc is trapped in such a way that it is putting pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots. There is usually lots of spinal degeneration and inflammation…as well as muscle spasms and pain. And sometimes this has been going on for years and the herniated disc patient is taking medications that cause a whole new set of problems (side effects).
Heck…nonsurgical decompression therapy with the DRX9000 is safe, gentle, and highly effective. And the risks of complications is low. Usually there is some soreness but rarely is it not tolerable.
Sure, sometimes spinal decompression does not deliver expected results but that is the exception and not the rule…especially if cases are screened properly.
So does spinal decompression make sense for you? Maybe!
We would first need to meet with you and your medical records. If you have an MRI or other films then please bring them to your appointment with us. If you do not have an MRI and we feel you need one we will order it for you.
If you are experiencing low back pain, sciatica, neck or arm pain that is not getting better, you may have a herniated or bulging disc. We can help you find out.
What you need to do is contact our San Francisco Spinal Decompression Center and schedule a complimentary consultation. To do this call 415-392-2225 and mention this blog post.
