When to consider Spinal Decompression

We consult with hundreds of herniated disc patients every year at our San Francisco Spinal Decompression Center. Many choose to move forward with spinal decompression…many decide to wait…or to try something covered by their insurance. That’s right, nonsurgical spinal decompression is not covered by insurance.

If you have insurance, we can most likely use it to cover re-exams, exercises, ice, heat, muscle stimulation, and some other ancillary charges…but the decompression therapy itself is still considered experimental.

Spinal decompression on the DRX9000 costs about $5000 at our decompression clinic in San Francisco…about the same as a vacation for two to Hawaii.

So you don’t have to be rich. What you do need to have is the desire to get better. And you need to make fixing your back a priority. You need to schedule the rest of your life around the spinal decompression treatment, which usually lasts about 6-8 weeks. One hour sessions 2-4 times per week, with lots of home care and exercises.

Desire to get better in my opinion is the #1 factor (you must also qualify medically). As long as that is there we can work with you on the finances (payment plans, zero interest financing).

Spinal decompression is not a magic bullet. In fact, it’s quite a bit of work. But if you want your life back it’s a small price to pay. And chances are…if you are accepted into our spinal decompression program (we don’t accept everyone) you will achieve a favorable outcome.

If you have been diagnosed with a bulging or herniated disc, or spinal disc degeneration, or spinal stenosis, or facet syndrome…you may be a candidate for the DRX9000.

If you have tried other conventional back pain treatments that have failed to deliver results, such as medical care, physical therapy, acupuncture, or chiropractic…you should consider spinal decompression.

Even if you have not tried anything yet…but have been diagnosed with a herniated disc, or any of the conditions above…you can try decompression first.

What you can’t do is try surgical fusion first. If you have any hardware in your spine you are disqualified from spinal decompression. It may be wise to try decompression first…you can always have surgery.

So, whether you have been living with chronic back pain and have tried every treatment under the sun, or have recently been diagnosed with a herniated or bulging disc and want to go right after the best “nonsurgical” herniated disc treatment…spinal decompression just might make sense for you…sooner than later!
