Spinal Decompression: Too good to be true?

Clifford underwent his first back surgery in 2001. Clifford had been suffering with lower back pain for as long as he could remember. Over the years physical therapy and chiropractic had helped temporarily but eventually the pain got worse and the treatments less effective. The pain eventually got to a point where he just couldn’t take it anymore. He was tired of the pain in his low back and the constant tingling, numbness and shooting pain that went down his leg. He was sick of the daily trips to the physical therapist that weren’t helping. He was done with the chiropractic treatments that felt good for a day or two only for the pain to quickly return. And most importantly he was literally sick of all the pills and their side effects of nausea, fatigue, stomach irritation and long term damage. So he did exactly what his Medical Doctor told him was “his only option at this point” which was to undergo surgery. “That should surely fix my problem,” he thought to himself. Little did he know that would be the first of 3 back surgeries he would undergo only to become another “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome” statistic.

More than 7,000 neurosurgeons, physical therapists, medical doctors, and chiropractors have added spinal decompression to their list of services over the last 10 years. More than 10 research articles support up to 80% effectiveness with even the toughest of cases. And now even other countries are getting in on the action as spinal decompression becomes the worldwide “go to” treatment for neck and back pain.

Dr. Howard Berkowitz, M.D., Orthopedist, Atlanta, GA, approves of spinal decompression therapy, stating, “As an orthopedic surgeon and peer reviewer, I see many patients who are significantly worse after back surgery. In many cases I believe that if they had been treated with spinal decompression before surgery they would have resolved completely.”

What’s All the Hype About?
Simple. Physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, and even some orthopedic surgeons are quickly adding one, two, three and even up to ten spinal decompression tables per clinic as they see patients get unbelievable results for herniated, degenerated, bulging and slipped discs even after shots, pills, adjustments and acupuncture have failed. Doctors want to be on the forefront of technology and this is “probably the single greatest addition to a doctor’s toolbox for neck and back pain over the last 50 years.” We can’t mention their names here but many professional athletes have turned to spinal decompression as opposed to surgery because there is no down-time, no cutting, nothing invasive and only takes about 4-6 weeks.

The Breakthrough
Doctors and researchers have known for a long time that most American’s spines are over compressed. We sit all
Now, thanks to revolutionary spinal decompression technology patients are saying goodbye to 10, 20 even 30 years of back pain with this comfortable, safe, non-sur- gical back and neck pain option. Luckily Clifford ended up being one of those.

What are the Side Effects of Spinal Decompression Therapy?
No therapy is ever going to be free from side effects. The most common side effect is a mild soreness after the first few treatments from stretching muscles that haven’t been stretched in a while. This is usually a mild, dull, achy soreness that goes away after the first 3-5 treatments. Also, one patient named Ron W. reported that he was mad because now that he doesn’t have pain anymore his wife made him clean the garage.
