My interest in non-surgical spinal decompression came about due to a personal crisis with my own spine (2-“severe” lumbar disc herniations/extrusions) after a weight-lifting injury. I was told I would likely need surgery due to the size of the disc extrusions and the fact that I had lost use of my left leg; I had to use crutches to get around, could not lift my foot or toes and had pain shooting all the way down to my toes. I had some of the highest pain levels I’ve ever had and I knew by my second session that I had to learn more about this form of spinal care, as it was the most effective treatment I’ve seen for disc herniations. By my third session, I was done with crutches and stayed the course until I had received 20 sessions and was fully functional.
Initially, due to the severity of my injury, I thought I would no longer be able to ride my dirt-bike, go snowboarding, lift weights, etc., but I’m back doing all of it. In fact, I regularly lift heavy weights (sqauts and deadlifts to name a few) and do anything I did previously with no discomfort what-so-ever.
Having performed several thousand decompressions on patients over the years, we’re now able to quickly determine who is a good candidate and what it will work best on. We’ve had great success with arthritis, non-specific spinal pain, failed spinal surgery, disc bulges, disc herniations, disc extrusions, spondylolisthesis, atypical migraines and injuries from car accidents.
