Spinal Decompression and Physical Therapy

We offer a wide range of services to our spinal decompression patients. With two offices located at the Embarcadero Center, we can provide chiropractic care, physical therapy treatment and advanced regenerative medicine services.

We have one of the largest and most technologically advanced physical therapy departments in San Francisco. We also have world-class medical doctors who specialize in Physical Medicine.

We are able to treat very advanced cases of lumbar and cervical disc herniations and bulges that require extensive post decompression rehabilitation.

Although most of our herniated disc patients will not need this, some will. We can take care of them in house. This makes for a much more cohesive treatment and the outcomes will be far better.

Some of the conditions we are able to treat with our DRX-9000 spinal decompression system are:

  • Lumbar and cervical disc herniations and bulges
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet Syndrome

Low Back Pain is not always easy to treat. In fact, its source can often be very mysterious. Even when the source seems to be identified and confirmed by MRI as herniated or bulging disc, some doctors tell patients that their best bet is back surgery.

Patients who don't want surgery often suffer for years trying other treatments like physical therapy, cortisone injections, muscle relaxants, pain pills, acupuncture, and chiropractic. Sometimes nothing seems to help.

Situations such as those described above led to the invention of non-surgical spinal decompression using machines like the DRX-9000. Spinal decompression has been around for about 20 years now and we have successfully treated many spinal decompression patients. Some were scheduled for surgery, but decided to give decompression a shot first. (Once you have low back surgery, depending on the type, you may be permanently disqualified from ever trying spinal decompression.) This may be reason enough to consider disc decompression first. You can always have back surgery, but unfortunately the reverse is not true.
