Dr. Larry Van Such, a spinal decompression therapy doctor here in Northland area of Columbus, Ohio helps you avoid surgery.
All of the literature says that as much as possible, try to avoid surgery. Statistically less than 50% have success.
Remember, surgery, whether it is successful or not, is permanent. Plus, there are a lot of things that can go wrong during an operation. If the doctor accidentally nicks a nerve, you can get paralysis of the lower legs, you can lose feeling in your legs and a lot of times, there is so much scar tissue that develops from the surgery that your symptoms can actually get worse.
Also there are a lot of variables and a lot of risk on top of that, you are going down a slippery slope of being predisposed to having back surgery even more frequently in the future and compared to spinal decompression therapy for herniated discs, you have a much greater chance of success.
