Are You a Spinal Decompression Candidate?

Are You a Spinal Decompression Candidate?

Treatable Conditions – Including, but not limited to..

If you suffer from one of the following conditions, there is a very good chance that spinal decompression will be an effective treatment avenue.

  • Herniated or Bulging Disc(s)
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Post-surgical Patients
  • Spinal Stenosis

However, there are several exclusion criteria, listed below, which restrict patients from undergoing spinal decompression treatments.

Exclusion Criteria – Including, but not limited to..

  • Pregnancy – unless with ob/gyn permission
  • Fusion of the affected joint
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Severe spondylolisthesis
  • Recent compression fracture of lumbar vertebra
  • Pelvic or abdominal cancer
  • Metastatic cancer

Without a full physical exam, complete medical history and images of the affected area, it is impossible to know, with certainty, whether a potential patient is a candidate for this treatment. Call to schedule your free consultation to determine whether you, in fact, are a candidate for this treatment.

Negative Influences – Including, but not limited to..

There are several influences that negatively affect your body’s ability to heal itself. Before committing to a spinal decompression program, patients should strongly consider removing or minimizing these influences.

  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Narcotics or steroids
  • Inadequate rest
