About 12 years ago or so we began to incorporate non-surgical spinal decompression into our treatment protocols for cervical and lumbar disc herniations. During this time we have helped hundreds of patients return to more normal active lifestyles and many have avoided surgery. I guess you could say the results have been outstanding.

Spinal decompression machines are designed and built to treat lumbar and cervical disc bulges and herniations naturally. The machine we use is the DRX-9000. We chose the DRX-9000 because it is very comfortable for the patient. In fact, most fall asleep during treatment.
The typical spinal decompression treatment protocol is 20 one-hour sessions done over a period of 6-8 weeks.

Neck pain is very common. Chronic neck pain, which is neck pain that persists for over 90 days, may be caused by a herniated or bulging disc. If so, it's not the end of the world and gentle chiropractic can usually help.

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 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.
