Based on a recent MRI, I have small incomplete annular tears suspected at the L4-5 and L5/S1 disk levels. There is desication of the L5/S1, L4-5 and L3-4 disk with mild diffuse disk bulging but no nerve root compression. My orthopedic surgeon is recommending something called "vertebral axial decompression" which involves a series of sessions on a mechanical table that will stretch my spine based on computer-programmed settings. Do you have an opinion on vertebral axial decompression? For example, do you see it as potentially complementary, redundant, or counter-productive to your methods?
