During this time period we have helped hundreds of back and neck pain patients return to more normal lives...and I can count on one hand the amount of patients that have had what I would call a negative reaction to spinal decompression.
A few patients got really sore. One guy had some numbness in his arm that lasted a few months. And another person just simply could not handle the treatment even though it is very gentle.
No paralysis. No serious injuries. Spinal Decompression is very safe.
There are many more cases of lumbar disc herniations than there are cervical disc herniations. I think the ratio is about 7 to 1.
Some of the conditions we treat with spinal decompression are as follows:
Lumbar disc herniations
Cervical disc herniations
Lumbar disc bulges and cervical disc bulges
Lumbar disc disease and cervical spinal degeneration
Lumbar and cervical spinal stenosis
Cervical and lumbar facet syndromes
Cervical and Lumbar Radiculopathy
Most of the patients we treat actually fall asleep during the 30 minute decompression sessions.
The treatment is very relaxing.
I have many friends that are doctors that perform spinal decompression also...and I have never heard first hand of a serious injury from decompression therapy.
So is spinal decompression safe...YES. Is spinal decompression effective? YES.
Should you try spinal decompression and will it help you? That's for you to decide...but just know that nonsurgical decompression has an excellent safety record.
