San Francisco DRX9000 Doctor Speaks Out About Costs!

Posted Jun 02 2009 4:33pm

Not all SF Bay Area Spinal Decompression Doctors Are The Same

Md_news_photos_011_2 Recently, I have noticed an increase in the amount of inquiries we get by email and by phone, that have to do with the price of spinal decompression with the DRX9000.

We will hear questions like this:

1. How much is spinal decompression per session?

2. What do you charge for the DRX9000?

3. What kind of insurance do you accept for the DRX9000?

So...I would like to address some of these issues now. First of all, each case is handled differently at our clinic... Executive Express Chiropractic at the Embarcadero Center in downtown San Francisco.

L5sacrum_2 Some patients may have only a single level disc herniation...while others have lumbar disc herniations at every level. Some patients are young....some are older. Some patients have both herniated discs in the lumbar spine and herniated disc in the cervical spine. Thoracic disc herniations are rare...but often times they get picked up when we order a lumbar MRI...this complicates matters.

Anyway...to just throw a price out there, without having examined the patient, seems unprofessional to me. It's not like buying a gallon of gasoline. There is an art to making proper recommendations and setting patients up on the DRX9000. And, there are decisions that need to be made throughout the DRX decompression treatment process. Experience is key... and just like with anything else...you get what you pay for.
