Spinal Decompression in San Francisco For Disc Herniation

Spinal Decompression Therapy with DRX9000

We have been providing Spinal Decompression in San Francisco for over 10 years now.

Most of the herniated or bulging disc patients that undergo spinal decompression therapy at our Financial District clinic have had previous chiropractic care. While chiropractic achieves favorable outcomes most of the time with herniated discs…sometimes it just can’t deliver.

The reason for this is that the herniated disc has positioned itself in such a way that it does not respond to the chiropractic adjustments or anything else for that matter. In fact, many are told that the only option is back surgery.

It is for this reason that spinal decompression machines such as the DRX9000 were invented.

Spinal decompression machines are designed and built to treat herniated and bulging discs non-surgically. They do this by enlarging the disc space and creating a negative pressure that pulls the herniated disc fragments back to the center of the disc where they belong…away from the delicate nerve roots and spinal cord.

Spinal decompression systems also elongate the spine which stretches the spinal muscles, ligaments and tendons, breaking up scar tissue formation and muscle spasms, which helps to restore lost motion and function. As motion is restored the injured spinal disc is able to regain lost water content which expands the disc creating a more normal separation between the vertebrae above and the one below. This gives the exiting nerve more room.

And of course, patients also feel better. You can get sore at first, but over time pain levels subside.

Some patients report a complete recovery, some very little, and everything in between. But the overwhelming majority of patients that we treat with the DRX9000 for lumbar or cervical disc herniations are glad they did the treatment..

The treatment process is for 20 sessions over 6 weeks. The sessions are one hour long and we reserve the machine for you. It seems like a lot but it goes by quick. And for the most part patients enjoy being on the machine…many fall asleep during the treatment.

At the end of the treatment you may be able resume chiropractic care. While adjustments did not work before the treatment, they will most likely make sense now with your healthier spine.

Sounds pretty good Huh? Well it is!
