Do Herniated Discs Regenerate?

We have been providing treatment for herniated discs in San Francisco for over 20 years now. During this time we have helped thousands of cervical and lumbar herniated disc patients.

About 7 years ago we began to incorporate nonsurgical spinal decompression into our herniated disc protocols. The machines we use are the DRX9000 and DRX9000c.

Ever since I can remember there has been an ongoing debate in the medical community as to whether a herniated disc can repair itself or not.

In my opinion, the answer is YES.

Why do I say this? Because I have seen it first hand over and over again. I have seen before and after MRI’s of my very own herniated disc patients that have shown dramatic improvement in disc height and reduction of  disc herniation post decompression therapy.

Is there research on this? YES…but there are not full blown double blind studies…they are in the works.

In reality, this blog post is simply my opinion…but it’s the opinion of a herniated disc doctor that has over 20 years experience treating herniated discs in San Francisco. I have also delivered over 12,000 spinal decompression treatments to hundreds of patients.

Bottom Line: I recommend not listening to the naysayers. If you have been diagnosed with a herniated disc and have been told you need neck or back surgery…consider nonsurgical spinal decompression. It just might be the answer to your problem.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is safe, gentle, and effective…and it is the only treatment I know of that can actually repair a herniated disc. But again…this is only my humble, biased opinion 🙂

To schedule a complimentary consultation with a spinal decompression doctor in San Francisco, call 415-392-2225 and mention this blog post.
