Q: I have heard a lot of talk about Spinal Decompression, is this effective? What will Colorado Spine Care do for me that a chiropractor/acupuncturist cannot?
A: Spinal decompression provides only temporary relief and is very expensive. Many times this treatment is not covered by insurance. Our team of physicians, physical therapists and other health professionals focus on getting you better so you can function independently. Most patients never need surgery but instead find relief with minimal injections or therapy.
Q: Are there options for me besides surgery?

Q: Will insurance cover the cost of my treatment?
A: In most cases, yes. Colorado Spine Care accepts most major insurances. Our health benefit advisors will help you determine if your insurance will pay for the cost of care.
