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.
