Los Angeles Spinal Decompression ® 
 
Best in Los Angeles

General Info
Los Angeles Spinal Decompression ® has been at this location since 1992, conveniently located near the 10 and 405 freeways, and is regarded as one of the most respected offices in the city. From the time I graduated UCLA, I have committed thousands of hours helping people out of pain and into a better, healthier lifestyles. While attending UCLA, I was able to work with the prestigious track and fo...
otball teams in biomechanics and graduated with a background in Kinesiology. I've worked with NBA coaches, players, and agents for years. I specialize in helping patients with lower back, hip pain, leg pain, accidents, and sports-related injuries. My deep understanding and intense interest have allowed me to have tremendous success with accident-related and disc-related injuries. Spinal Decompression is one of the fastest growing treatments in response to the publics desperate need for a non-surgical spinal solution to severe and life changing back problems. As opposed to traction, which can increase intradiscal pressure and therefore aggravate a protruded, herniated, bulging, and/or extruded disc, spinal decompression has been shown to lower intradiscal pressure by applying axial decompression to the disc level using a logarithmic time force curve bypassing the muscle guarding reflex, thus reducing the disc pressure towards a negative level (American Chiropractor, March 2008). By doing this, it is believed that the disc lesion irritating the nerve root is pulled off the nerve, thus reducing nerve irritation and the pain and muscle spasm that's responding to the sharp, knife-like nerve irritation to begin with.

Regardless of what others say, they do take insurance for decompression therapy and I have the EOB's from the insurance company to prove it. Mind you they told me NOT all insurance companies cover this treatment.

I had a terrific experience working with this office. I fould them all very thorough, professional and low key. It's all high tech and I did follow up assessments on my iPad for them to follow my progress. Thanks Dr. O for all the attention.

I believe in this and for me I am out of pain now. As an alternative, why wouldn't someone try this before surgery and or medications and or injections of steroids? It makes sense.

Why do back surgery and not see if this treatment worked first and save you the risk and complications from surgery. I know many people who've had back surgery and regret it everyday. They are in worse pain now and are in a pain management clinic which is basically a place where they just issue pain meds for the rest of your life. Who wants to be on medication everyday?

I really liked this treatment and found it very helpful for me. Insurance does cover the cost sometimes as well.

Great offcice. They have the DRX9000 for the neck and lower back. They DO ACCEPT INSURANCE so don't be fooled by other offices they say you cannot bill insurance for this treatment. Dr. Karr figured it out and helps keep the costs down. Dr. Karr is a terrific chiropractor.

After much research, I discovered that only a very few doctors take health insurance for spinal decompression. I found myself suddenly in a painful situation with my lower back and leg pain and the bills were adding up quickly. Each doctor had their own approach as to how and help me. I did the epidurals several times with some relief, but it didn't last and surgery wasn't an option. No one told me about spinal decompression. I had to hear about it from a friend and that's when the research started. I met with Dr. Karr and he reviewed my exam and MRI with me in detail. It mode complete sense as it related to the pin I was having, that being a nerve in my lower back being pinched and how everyone has a different idea of how to treat it. I decided to do treatment with Dr. Karr and I started noticing a difference rather quick. He explained that most people don't notice relief that quickly and Dr. Karr changed my treatment plan and started me on strengthening exercises. I believe he is the only office offering Medx with decompression. The cost was a fraction of what other offices wanted me to pay out of pocket and I must say I can imagine getting any better treatment elsewhere. I like to DRX9000 as oppose to the other machines I looked into. I am pain free and much more confident in my daily activities. I suggest seeing Dr. Karr before considering anything else.

First off I would like to say ...

First off I would like to say thank you to Dr.Karr and his team for the wonderful service they provided me the moment I walked in the door. I came in as a walk-in and was treated like family. The whole team was kind, informative and helpful. So I finally decided to see a specialist after months of pain in my rib area. I am so glad I saw Dr.Karr as my Chiropractor. With Dr. Karr's expertise, he was able to diagnose the problem and use his magic hands to readjust my back and ribs. I feel fantastic after my first visit and kick myself for not coming earlier. It was also surprisingly affordable. It was so great to see Dr.Karr actually cared for his patients. He was all ears when I spoke and his face time was invaluable. I have already recommended him to others and will continue to use West Los Angeles Chiropractic office for all my chiropractic needs. I hope other patients will be able to experience what a wonderful practice you have. Best wishes. Anton
