I'm in my 20's and have a bulging disc in my lower back. I didn't want to have surgery so I thought the decompression therapy would be my best bet.
I worked with Dr. Sorell and he seems nice enough, but after buying into his promises, I'm convinced the whole thing is dangerous, and possibly a scam.
After looking at my MRI scans, he told me he was 90% sure it would relieve all of my pain and it would be virtually painless.
The first 2 times I went in, it hurt really bad, but I figured maybe that was just my back getting used to it. After the 3rd time I went in, I could barely walk getting off the machine and I almost pulled over on the way home because of the pain. I thought something might be seriously wrong, but luckily after a few weeks my pain level has returned to where it was before I started.
What did those 3 sessions and immense pain cost me? Over $1000! If it was a little more I'd consider hiring a lawyer but I'm not sure it would be worth it. My advice is to avoid this place at all costs. Even his manual adjustments seemed harsh and didn't provide any relief.
