I have lived with this back pain for close to three years. I have been on pain killers and other medications to help mask the symptoms. The selection of Dr. Kurtz occurred through being listed in my medical benefits and seeing an ad in the paper. Working with his office, we schedule 20 straight business days of spinal decompression with other treatment techniques such as suspended treadmill walking, massage and laser treatment for inflammation following spinal decompression, and ice packs at home following each session. The pain subsided with each visit, from the first week to the last session.
