Proper patient selection is essential to favorable outcomes, so let us explain the inclusion and exclusion criteria so you may make the right decision since not everyone qualifies for Spinal Decompression treatment.
Inclusion Criteria:

  • Pain due to herniated and bulging lumbar discs that is more than four weeks old
  • Recurrent pain from a failed back surgery that is more than six months old.
  • Persistent pain from degenerated disc not responding to four weeks of therapy.
  • Patients available for four weeks of treatment protocol.
  • Patient at least 18 years of age.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Appliances in the spine such as pedicle screws and rods
  • Pregnancy
  • Prior lumbar fusion less than six months old
  • Metastatic cancer
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Spondylolisthesis (unstable)
  • Compression fracture of lumbar spine below L-1 (recent).
  • Pars defect
  • Pathologic aortic aneurysm.
  • Pelvic or abdominal cancer
  • Disc space infections
  • Severe peripheral neuropathy
  • Hemiplegia, paraplegia, or cognitive dysfunction
  • Who is a candidate for Spinal Decompression?
    Anyone who has been told they need surgery but wishes to avoid it, anyone who has been told there is nothing more available to help, anyone who failed to significantly respond to conservative options (medications, physio therapy, injections, chiropractic, acupuncture), or anyone who still has pain but wishes to obtain the type of care they want.
