San Francisco Chiropractor and Spinal Decompression Doctor Comments:
Cervical Disc Herniations are a primary cause of radiating arm pain from the neck...or radicular pain. Often times nothing seems to help and surgery looks like the only option. Neck surgery can be scary. Sure medical science has advanced and there are microsurgery's...but they still do the old fashioned cervical spinal fusions.
Once you have had cervical fusion, you can never try nonsurgical spinal decompression...you are disqualified from treatment. Cervical spinal decompression may have helped you, but you will never be able to find out.
This is why I feel surgery should always be a last resort, and cervical decompression therapy should be considered, as long as you qualify medically...not everyone does. This is determined by the spinal decompression doctor.
Hey...you can always have surgery...but it can never be reversed. Nonsurgical spinal decompression will either help you or it wont. So...you will be out some time and money if it doesn't work...big deal...you will still be whole...and at least you tried it...so know you know. But what if it does and you get your life back? Well...that's the objective. Will it work? There's only one way to find out...try it.
