We have been providing cervical decompression therapy in San Francisco for about 8 years now. We have been serving the SF Financial District for over 20 years. The spinal decompression machine we use is the DRX9000c.
The DRX9000c is designed and built to treat cervical neurovascular compression syndromes such as bulging discs, herniated discs, cervical stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome, nonsurgically.
The DRX9000c is set to the specific spinal disc level of the problem. For instance, if there is a disc herniation of the C6-7 disc then that is the disc we target. Decompression therapy enlarges the disc space, elongates the spine, strengthens the spinal muscles and ligaments, re-hydrates the injured cervical spinal disc, and pulls the herniated or bulging disc fragments back to the center of the disc and off the spinal cord and spinal nerves.
The decompression therapy is about 30 minutes. Then there is 10 minutes and muscle stimulation and ice. The muscle stimulation teaches the cervical muscles to work with the spine in it’s new position. The ice reduces inflammation and muscle spasms.
The protocol for cervical decompression with the DRX9000c is 20 sessions. These sessions are done over a 6 week period.
Some spinal decompression patients continue with ongoing maintenance and some just come in as needed when they feel they need it.
There is home care and exercises that decompression patients follow to obtain optimum results.
Success rates are high with cervical decompression at our San Francisco clinic. We try to only accept cases that we feel will achieve favorable outcomes.
Sometimes there is a little soreness in the beginning…but most patients are already sore. Otherwise, the treatment itself is very gentle and relaxing…it’s something you look forward to.
If you have been diagnosed with a cervical disc herniation or disc bulge, or any of the other conditions listed above, and would like to find out if you are a candidate for spinal decompression, you should find a doctor with a DRX9000c in your area.
If you live, work, or can travel to downtown San Francisco, then you can see us.
