We have been providing chronic low back pain treatment in San Francisco for over 22 years now in the Financial District.
Chronic low back pain is pain in the lumbar spine that has persisted for over 90 days. The #1 predisposing factor for chronic low back pain is previous back pain. That’s right, if you now have back pain and you have had it before, you are at a high risk to develop chronic back pain.
So what can be done?
Well…first you need to find out what is causing your low back pain. Do you have leg pain (sciatica) also? Is there numbness, tingling or weakness in the legs or feet? Is there night pain?
A chiropractor is a great place to start the discovery process. X-rays may be indicated or even an MRI if a herniated or bulging disc is suspected.
Typically, we will first try a course of chiropractic treatment first or physical therapy. If chiropractic fails to deliver results we will consider spinal decompression with the DRX9000.
Spinal decompression machines are designed and built to help problems such as chronic low back pain or sciatica that are caused by herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, or spinal stenosis.
A standard course of treatment is 20 sessions over a 6-8 week period. Results are outstanding and side effects are minimal.
Sure, spinal decompression may not help you…but that is the exception and not the rule. In the event disc decompression therapy fails to deliver you are still whole and can pursue other treatment options, even surgery.
If you have surgery first you may be permanently disqualified from ever trying spinal decompression and there are risks to consider as well.
So…if you are suffering with chronic low back pain and are looking for answers, you may have just found some.
