Spinal Decompression Los Angeles Guidelines

A full spinal decompression treatment program that includes spinal decompression and other adjunctive treatments may seem somewhat expensive. Spinal Decompression Los Angeles offers excellent info on this. In actuality, it is a much lower-cost treatment option than surgery for most people and has a statistically much higher success rate, so it can be a very good value, but nonetheless, some people try to cut down their costs by trying to reduce the amount of treatment. This can be a big mistake. In my experience, most people who complete the recommended decompression treatment protocol will get lasting relief and can safely return to their normal activities. Those who discontinue care prematurely will often relapse, and may suffer worse pain and worse damage to the disc because they resume excessively physically demanding activities before the disc has fully healed and stabilized.

 

Of course, some people fail to follow treatment recommendations primarily because they have busy lives and are unwilling to spend the time on getting better. This type of patient tends to miss a lot of appointments and may go long periods of time between treatment sessions. Unfortunately, the success of spinal decompression usually depends on getting the recommended amount of treatment at the recommended frequency of treatments. The effectiveness and results are not as good when people don’t make time for their appointments. What some busy people fail to realize is that if they don’t set aside time to properly deal with their health problem, sooner or later that health problem will deteriorate to the point where it forces them to make time to get treatment, and this often occurs when they are at their busiest and treatment is least convenient. It is my recommendation to invest the necessary time in getting better, rather than do the treatment intermittently and not get the best results.

In conclusion, spinal decompression is usually an extremely effective treatment for people suffering with pain from bulging and degenerated discs, but it is important that doctors select patients for this treatment carefully and make sure that the technicians operating the equipment get refresher training regularly. Patients need to beware of trying to reduce their time and/or money investment through reductions in treatment and to take the responsibility to follow the treatment recommendations to allow for maximum correction and healing. In my experience, when patients are properly selected and the appropriate treatment protocols are followed, the vast majority of spinal decompression patients get excellent long-term results.
