Who Should Not Use Spinal Decompression?
The ultimate decision to not use back or neck decompression at our Colorado Springs spinal decompression clinic should be made by you and your doctor, and this is best made with accurate information gained from an X-ray or (ideally) MRI as well as an examination and health history.
So, before you decide to count yourself out, contact us for a free exam to see if you qualify for treatment.
However, there are some health issues that can lead to disqualification. They include the following: bone cancers, fractures, severe rheumatoid arthritis, severe osteoporosis, spinal implants, and artificial discs.
Obesity can also disqualify a patient as well as smoking. If these factors do not disqualify a patient, they may impact the results. Smoking dehydrates the discs of the spine, speeds up the degenerative process, and increases pain sensations. Excessive weight can put massive amounts of pressure on the spine and other joints of the body and thereby inhibit results.
