I have 2 bulging disks ( L4 and L5) , along with DDD and tears in both of them which is causing me neuropathy ( confirmed on EMG as well). I have ben doing pt for 6 months with no improvement and also had 3 epidurals which only gave me relief for a week or so with each. Presently I am taking gabapentin 600 3 times a day, baclofen 20 mg 3 times a day, Celebrex 2 times a day, flexeril at night and norco for break thru pain. 2 orthos, 2 neurosurgeon seen. 3 of the 4 said my disk isn't bulging enough to perform decompression surgery on me. Disks are bulging just enough to " irritate" nerve roots . 4 th doctor wanted to go straight to a fusion-no thanks. I have a [edit] by me that uses a form of decompression therapy to help heal the disk and get it back into its normal state. I met with them and they said I was a candidate for their treatment. I'm going old school here for a minute. To me, it sounds like their treatment is " to good to be true" because they say they have a 95 percent success rate with treatment in significantly reducing ones pain. So anyone ever want to try or think of trying the [edit]?

    It is a scam. They tell you that they can help you so you will pay the $7500 fee for the program which insurance doesn't cover.  I paid the fee and received 12 weeks of treatments 4 days a week. It did not help at all. I had spinal fusion surgery 2 weeks ago. [edit].  It is a money grab scam.
