Spinal Decompression or Back Surgery?

Lumbar decompression with the DRX9000

We have been providing spinal decompression therapy in San Francisco for over 9 years now. The machine we use is the DRX9000. Spinal decompression machines are designed and built to treat disc herniations, disc bulges, disc degeneration, and spinal stenosis non-surgically.

Many of our patients have been told they need back surgery and want to try something less invasive first. Unless your condition is a medical emergency and you risk paralysis without immediate surgery, there is most likely no harm in trying spinal decompression first to see if it may help.

Some back surgeons will scare the heck out of you…especially some of the overseas doctors that are not familiar with the latest advancements with nonsurgical treatments.

If we accept a spinal decompression patient then we feel there is a very good chance of a favorable outcome…and we are usually right. If we are wrong then you are still whole and can pursue other treatment options.

Surgery on the other hand is permanent and cannot be reversed. Even a discectomy,  whereby the herniated disc fragments are removed, alters your structure and can predispose you to problems down the road in the same area or different areas of the spine.  And, the surgery may or may not even make you feel better. The patients that seek us out do not want to take this chance…at least not first.

So, if you have a lumbar disc herniation and are experiencing low back pain, sciatica, leg numbness or tingling, weakness or night pain, you should consider spinal disc decompression. You can always try surgery.

Plus, depending on the type of surgery…if it is a “fusion” surgery, you will forever be permanently disqualified from ever trying nonsurgical spinal decompression.

Why not try it first?
