Anyone ever try this at a chiro office and have you had success with it for your neck pain which invlived hernited discs. What was the cost and how long did you go for treatment?


  • I don't know if this helps cuz mine was for lower back but I had spinal decompression therapy done at chiro's before I went to orthopedic surgeone. I was going 2-3 times per week and only had to pay $15 copay and insurance paid for the rest. I went for 3-5 weeks (can't remember exactly how long) and each time I was in more pain. It seemed to be making me feel worse and I had all I could do to drive home afterwards and then to walk from my car to the house. A couple of times I would call my husband and have him help me out of the car and into the house. I always went after work so I had to drive myself home.

    I've heard others have had success from this so don't just go by what I say. I had a bulging disc at L5/S1.
