Non-surgical spinal decompression is successful between 88 and 94% of the time. Chiropractic has the best outcome. Adjustments can be low force and gentle. The first step would be to examine and palpate the spine and compare to X-ray study and MRI before adjusting or decompressing.

Yes it is safe and would be helpful to see a Chiropractor. You ought to bring current xrays and MRIs with you and discuss your surgery with the Chiropractor. It may not be appropriate to adjust the segments that were involved in the surgery, however chiropractic can definately help in reducing the subluxations in the remainder of your spine and restoring communication between the brain/spinal cord and the rest of your body. Also, you may still be a candidate for non surgical spinal decompression that can keep you from having additional surgery.
