How do I know if I Qualify for Spinal Decompression?

We have been providing spinal decompression services in downtown San Francisco for 8 years now. The machine we use is the DRX9000.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a machine that is designed an built to treat neurovascular compression syndromes such as herniated and bulging discs, spinal stenosis, disc degeneration, and facet syndrome.

Not everyone qualifies medically for spinal decompression therapy…and here are some of the contraindications and exclusions:


  • Aortic Aneurism
  • Surgical Fusion (cement, wires, mesh, hardware)
  • Unstable Spondylolithesis (usually Grade II and above)
  • Advanced Osteoporosis
  • Moderate to Severe Congenital Scoliosis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Bone or muscle tumors
  • Severe Spinal Degeneration

Please note: Your spinal decompression doctor will have to make the decision of whether or not you are a good candidate for spinal decompression at their clinic.

The best thing to do is research spinal decompression doctors in your area online and meet with them face to face with your medical records. You can both decide together if spinal decompression therapy makes sense for you.

To schedule an appointment with one of our San Francisco Spinal Decompression Doctors, call 415-392-2225. Mention this blog post for a complimentary consultation.
