My chiropractor recommended Dr. Basco’s spinal decompression machine to treat my bulging disc. For sure his 20 treatment plan was the key to my recovery. Beforehand I had disabling sciatica and 24 hour pain, could not walk a block or stand for more than a few minutes. I had had an epidural already but that only relieved my symptoms about 25%. The very first decompression treatment I had gave me as much relief as the epidural. By treatment 13 the sciatic pain was gone, and after the last few treatments I could walk and stand normally. Now I go in for monthly touch ups which feel great (for me the treatments while my condition was still acute were uncomfortable, but absolutely worth it). Even though I paid cash for the treatments I found them very affordable and worth every dollar. Do not even consider surgery before you try this first!
