We have been treating chronic back pain and related disorders for much longer than that (since 1992).
After researching spinal decompression therapy for a few years and determining that it was very safe, gentle and effective, we decided to incorporate it into our treatment protocols for cervical and lumbar herniated and bulging discs. The results have been outstanding.
Last year, our spinal decompression clinic at the Embarcadero Center in downtown San Francisco was purchased by Chiro-Medical Group, Inc. Chiro-Medical Group (CMG) is an industry leader in Chiropractic, Physical Medicine and Sports Medicine and was recently featured on the cover of Chiropractic Economics Magazine.
They have a very large staff of medical doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, athletic trainers, nurses, and support staff. Our new spinal decompression patients now have access to the CMG team. The CMG clinic is only a few blocks away.
Spinal decompression treatment is typically 20-24 one hour sessions done over a 6-8 week period. You would be on the machine for 30 minutes followed by 10 minutes of muscle stimulation and ice. We also incorporate deep tissue laser therapy, massage and chiropractic if indicated. In difficult to treat cases, co-care with our medical team may make sense.
The spinal disc decompression machine we use is the DRX9000, which is fully computerized with a biofeedback mechanism to ensure safety and efficacy. Most of our herniated disc patients fall asleep during treatment. It is rarely painful and is something you look forward to.
