San Francisco Spinal Decompression Doctor Comments:
I have been helping patients with cervical spine problems for almost 17 years in the SF Financial District. We are currently in the process of opening our new clinic, Executive Express Chiropractic at the downtown Embarcadero Center.
One thing I have come to learn during this time is...neck problems can take on a life of their own. You can have two patients the same age, the same gender, and the same x-rays or MRI...but they respond totally different to the treatment.
We know that there is a normal or optimum position for the cervical spine. A position that allows for maximum resistance to the forces of gravity and motion. Some chiropractors such as myself, measure this on x-rays, and visualize it with posture and range of motion studies. The goal is always to restore the neck curve closer to normal.
But what if the patient has herniated cervical discs and advanced spinal degeneration? What if the patient can barely turn her head...or can't handle any exercise. This makes it tough. It's almost impossible to do any physical therapy or chiropractic. And since the problem (this example) is structural, medications will not do much. So what can be done?
At my San Francisco Spinal Decompression Clinic, we have had great success working with cases just like this. Does DRX always help?...NO, nothing does. Does it help most of the time? YES. Should you try the DRX9000c? You know what I think
