We have been providing spinal decompression therapy in San Francisco for over 10 years now. During this time we have helped thousands of herniated discs patients return to more normal lives. We have also assisted in preventing hundreds of low back surgeries.
Every now and then a patient that has had previous back surgery presents for spinal decompression treatment. They had the back surgery and either the symptoms got worse or did not improve…or did not improve much.
Unfortunately, if the back surgery was a spinal fusion, there is nothing we can do. Patients with spinal fusion surgeries are permanently disqualified from spinal decompression.
If the surgery was a discectomy, then there is hope. In fact, we have helped dozens of patients over the past 10 years with spinal decompression that have had failed discectomy back surgery.
This is good news for those who may have been told they have no other treatment options for their chronic low back pain or sciatica.
Sure, we may do the treatment and it does not help…but that is not likely.
And the decompression therapy is very safe and gentle.
We also have a team of medical doctors and physical therapists that can participate in the treatment process, increasing the odds of a favorable outcome.
So, yes…if you have failed surgery you still may be a candidate for spinal decompression on the DRX9000.
