ChronicSufferGirl85 posted:
Has anyone ever heard of this machine ever working?
or tired themselves, and worked or failed?

Im considering trying it

IM 26 yrs old and for the last 4 years tried everything
physical therapy, chiro, acupunc, massage, excercise, and stretches

I tried pain managment
epidural,facetblock's injections, and pain killers

but nothing works, Im at the point where i have severe sciata
and leg pain tingling every day and its constant back pain assocated to constant sciata that that never goes away

im considering surgery, but after researching it more IM scared cuz im young
I dont knwo what to do
live with this pain daily or try surgery?
or try the decompression machine, i heard it helped lots of people stay out of needing surgery

My spine surgeon, had me discogram, and it showed postive results meaning that they say based on the results, it showed promising that spinal surgery will work

my back is l-4, l-5, s-1
there is an annular tear l-4-5 and its a 9mm tear or something i have been told
i have bulding disc also.

I also have fibromylagia, so im in pain all day every day all the time
its horrible

Any advice anyone? please! thank you!

The only device you should consider is the Accu Spina. It's the only one mentioned on WebMD and it has special patents and made by a medical company. Many other machines are just traction tables no matter what they say...I wish you well and surgery at your age is not good...try to avoid it!
