Hello, I'm Dr. George Kukurin and I am licensed to practice acupuncture by the state of Arizona. I am also licensed as a chiropractic physician. I have been studying and practicing alternative medicine techniques for over 20 years. I have a keen interest in conditions of the nervous system.  I am a former faculty member of the Post Graduate Neurology Department of Parker College and one of a select few Arizona chiropractic physicians who are also Diplomats of the American Chiropractic Academy of Neurology  I have treated thousands of patients suffering from all types of conditions of the nervous system. I have post-graduate education from the Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic. I have even traveled to Russian to learn laser acupuncture and to Mexico to study nerve regeneration treatments and techniques.
Dr. Kukurin has 25 years of experience with acupcunture.
Because of my years of experience and education in many different

 systems of alternative medicine, my patients have obtained some notable results. These results have even  been published in   medical journals and journals indexed in the National Library of Medicine, they have been featured on local Fox and ABC newscasts and I have also presented them to other doctors at conferences at Johns Hopkins Medical School in Baltimore. Having all this additional training and education is extremely helpful in evaluating patients and determining those I feel will benefit from a trial of the methods I use and also for determining which patients I feel  would likely benefit from other forms of treatment.   I have written a number of books detailing my  methods including a book on treating nerve problems like neuropathy. 

The protocols and methods I developed over the years have helped so many people.  I hope that you'll take a minute to inquire how they might help you.

I also strongly believe that the  health benefits of my methods should be affordable to those folks who really need them.  Luckily most insurance plans are covering at least a portion of the techniques we employ.   That is why I am proud to be a preferred provider with Blue Cross, Aetna, Cigna, United, Medicare and most other insurance plans. So call our scheduling hotline at 623.547.4727 and leave a message, visit our website for more information www.kcpv.info  or email us with your questions ...

These advanced and innovative methods are delivered in a caring and friendly environment and they will not only be affordable, but a great value. You have my word on it!

Neuropathy effects the nerves in the feetOf course anyone who faces the prospective of spinal surgery would like to find an effective method to avoid back surgery. Even with the advances in modern surgical techniques, surgery and in particular spinal surgery can be risky business. The truth of the matter is, even a good surgeon will tell you, "if you can find a non-surgical approach to relieve your back pain ~ Do it!"

Thankfully new techniques, collectively called spinal decompression therapy, are some of the most promising emerging methods  for long term non-surgical back and leg pain relief. 

Ancient Chinese writings on acupuncture

A word of caution to you if you are considering  spinal decompression therapy  for your back or leg pain. Some doctors have paid upwards of $100,000 for their decompression equipment.  It's only human nature that if you spend $100K on a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail!
 Make sure you know all of your options before you decide.

The goal of surgical as well as non- surgical back pain treatment is to take pressure off sore and inflamed nerves. Surgical spinal  nerve decompression requires cutting the tissue away from and decompressing the nerves exiting the spine. You can download our free eBook which discusses the various surgical options for spinal decompression. Click here. There are also a number of methods of non-surgical spinal nerve decompression . All of these non-surgical methods work by elongating the spine.  When you elongate the spine you can move tissues (that are compressing the spinal nerves) away from these sensitive pain producing structures.

So of course you want to avoid resorting to surgery to relieve the pressure on these spinal nerves, but what is the best non- surgical approach?

The very first choice is to start with an exercise program designed to specifically decompress spinal nerves. We have an eBook which explains the best exercises for spinal decompression. You can download it for free and keep it. You'll need these valuable exercises no matter which method of decompression you choose: be it surgical or non-surgical spinal decompression.    Down load your copy now. Get it here.

The next thing you need to consider is what type of supportive therapy you'll receive as part of your decompression treatment. The fact of the matter is that you want to decompress the spinal nerves, but you also want to have additional therapies that promote the regeneration of the nerves that have already been damaged from the pressure upon them.  Low level laser therapy and acupuncture are two excellent treatments to include along with your spinal decompression treatments.  Try to find a decompression center that can offer you acupuncture and laser at the same time you are receiving the actual spinal decompression treatment. In this way you can have your pinched nerves decompressed while at the same time use therapies known to promote repair and regeneration of those parts of the nerves that are already damaged. This combined approach offers you your best chance for the most complete recovery possible.

There are even nutrients that you can take that will accelerate the healing process in the nerves that have been injured and damaged due to prolonged compression and pressure.  A comprehensive spinal decompression center  will offer these nutrients to you as part of a complete package of spinal nerve decompression and repair.

Just like there are many surgical procedures used to decompressed pinched spinal nerves, there are also a number of different techniques available for non-surgical decompression of these nerves. The important point to remember is that  every procedure, both surgical and non-surgical, seeks to take pressure off nerves that have been damaged by compression. So which spinal decom-pression procedure is the best to use to help you? Let's look at your options.

There are many big impressive looking decompression units available to treat back pain like the one pictured at the top of the page. These are very expensive machines and are considered experimental by most insurance plans.  Therefore most insurance plans will not cover the cost of treatment with these devices. Because of  this, you will have to pay for this treatment out of your own pocket. Furthermore there are few, if any, head-to-head scientific studies that show these devices to be more effective than  other decompression techniques that are covered by insurance.

As we have previously mentioned combining acupuncture, laser, and specific nutrients known to promote nerve regeneration and healing, can produce some remarkable results. Most patients can avoid surgery with a comprehensive spinal decompression program that includes specific decompression exercises for home maintenance.  In fact these spinal decompression procedures are often effective even after surgery has failed.  So it makes sense to consider a comprehensive program before you consider surgery.

In our offices, we favor flexion distraction decompression techniques, as well as the Vertetrac® ambulatory decompression belt. We use laser and various forms of acupuncture therapy as well as providing specific nutrients that help the nerves already damaged to regenerate. Most insurance plans will cover at least a portion of the costs of the decompression techniques we utilize. We have many tools available to us to treat your back and leg pain. We can create a decompression plan that is specifically designed for you. We don't treat every patient like a nail because the only tool we have is a hammer. That's  an important distinction to consider when looking for decompression therapy for your back and leg pain.

The Vertetrac® Ambulatory Decom-pression Belt (above left) is different from all other types of spinal decompression devices.  It allows patients to exercise while undergoing decompression. Especially for patients suffering from spinal stenosis this is an important feature. Most patients with spinal stenosis have increased pain associated with walking.  The Vertetrac® device has been shown to improve walking ability in spinal stenosis patients. The Back Bubble® (seen above right) is a relatively inexpensive decompression device based on the Auto-Traction concept developed in Sweden. It can be purchased for home use. All of these techniques share a common principal, they elongate the spine and take pressure off the damaged nerve so that these nerves can heal.
