Dr. Cifra Helps Local Resident with Neck and Low Back Pain Utilizing Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Jan 01, 2020 12:29PM
Ron D. of Bradenton, Fl. had been suffering for many years before finding relief at the hands of Dr. Cifra. For over 12 years he suffered with a compressed vertebra which was debilitating to the point where he could hardly walk. A pinched nerve was causing spasms in his left hip leaving him with pain that got worse and worse. Ron went the traditional route and saw his personal physician for diagnosis and treatment. He tried epidurals, which did not last long and eventually stopped working altogether. Next, he tried ablation, which worked initially but after 4 months, the pain would come back again. Ron even visited a surgeon, who recommended he have an MRI done. Unfortunately, the surgeon concluded that an operation would not help him. Feeling frustrated, Ron asked his physician if he should try Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. The physician was not aware of this treatment but agreed that it would be worth trying- he was out of options. 

       Ron met with Dr. Cifra for an evaluation and found out he would be a candidate for treatment. The treatment plan would last about 3 months, with visits 3-4 times per week. Initially Dr. Cifra asked Ron where his tender spots were, to be able to treat them. After 3 weeks of treatment, Ron stated that the tender spot was gone “6 out of 7 days a week I can stand straight up now. I could not do that before.”  Ron hopes to play golf again and looks forward to his continued treatments.
