Do other physicians recommend this form of treatment?
Most Neurosurgeons and Orthopedic Surgeons do. Additionally, many hospitals around the country are now offering this FDA approved technology. Some local physicians are not yet familiar with this new technology.

Why hasn’t my family doctor recommended this procedure?
Because this procedure is new to our area and is very specialized, many general physicians are not familiar with it yet.

A doctor has recommended surgery, should I consider non-surgical axial decompression?
Yes! Axial decompression is designed to treat patients that are surgical candidates as well as some postsurgicalpost surgical and failed back surgery conditions.

How long does the procedure take?
Your office visit will take about 50 minutes.

Will axial decompression help with my leg or arm pain?
In most cases pain, numbness or tingling in the leg, calf, or foot is a result of nerve compression centered in the lower back. Therefore, decompression of the lower back nerve roots will alleviate the symptoms in the leg. The same relationship exists between the cervical spine (neck) and the shoulders, arms, and hands.

How long does it take before I feel relief?
The treatment protocol is designed to last 20 sessions over 6 weeks. Most patients start to feel relief within the first two weeks; a minority of patients experience relief later in the six week program.

Are there any age restrictions to this technology?
 No.  We commonly help people in their late eighties as well as teenagers

What are the chances that axial decompression will help me?
A recent study published in the American Journal of Pain Management found that axial decompression gave good to excellent results in 86% of patients treated. AJPM 1997; 7:63-65

Does the procedure hurt?
No. The decompression starts slow and builds each individual’s tolerance. In fact many people are so relaxed, they fall asleep during the procedure.

Is it likely that the procedure can make my pain worse?
None of our patients have felt worse after a course of axial decompression.

I’ve heard that the treatment is done while I am lying down. Does that mean that my problem and pain will reappear when I get up?
The decompression is achieved by treatment in a lying down position. Completion of a successful treatment course will give you a permanent correction and you are expected to feel better in all positions.

Does my insurance cover treatment?
Almost all insurance companies cover your treatment in our center. However each insurance plan is different; therefore we call your insurance company to determine the extent of your coverage. In this way you will know exactly what the costs are before you start treatment.

What about Medicare?
Medicare covers your treatment in our center under the physical therapy provision.
