Herniated disc patients always want to get better quickly and that is always our primary goal. In fact, most spinal decompression patients start to feel better well before they complete their recommended treatment plan (plans average 20 sessions). This does not mean they are necessarily better yet, but it does indicate the treatment is working.

We are renowned for treating sports injuries and have a team of medical doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors and support staff that is unmatched in San Francisco. We've built a reputation of providing treatment for herniated and bulging discs non-surgically using the DRX-9000 spinal decompression system, laser, and rehabilitation.

We were the first to bring the DRX-9000 spinal decompression system to San Francisco. Since then, we have helped thousands of patients return to more active lifestyles and many have avoided back or neck surgery in the process.

Typically, herniated disc patients want to know:

1. Can spinal decompression help me?

2. Is spinal decompression expensive?

Spinal decompression is an excellent nonsurgical, drugless treatment method for the treatment of herniated and bulging discs.  It is very gentle and safe for the most part. However, spinal decompression is physical and involves pulling and stretching.

We have been providing spinal decompression in downtown San Francisco for over 13 years. During this time we have performed over 25,000 spinal decompression sessions to a wide variety of patients. We have never had a patient that was seriously injured while undergoing spinal decompression.

Spinal Decompression has become the gold standard for the nonsurgical treatment of herniated and bulging discs that are unresponsive to conventional treatments such as chiropractic, medical care, physical therapy or acupuncture.

Spinal decompression machines such as the DRX-9000 are able to successfully treat disc herniations in the cervical and lumbar spine non-surgically.  This makes a lot of sense for those that do not want to have back or neck surgery. The treatment is very safe and gentle and success rates are high.

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) mostly results when the spinal discs wear abnormally, often resulting in pain and loss of function.

Just like the tread on your tires will wear uneven when the front end is out of alignment…so will the spinal discs when the spine is out of alignment. When the discs lose their normal height and water content they lose the ability to function properly.
