Why Suffer With Back Pain?
The DRX 9000 is used for treating neck and low back pain for people that are considering surgery due to herniated discs, bulging discs and degenerative disc disease. Unlike surgery that requires months of recovery, the DRX treatment allows patients to return to an active lifestyle sooner.
A patient is required to get an MRI and X-rays before beginning treatment. It is a time commitment requiring at least 20 sessions at one hour per session. Patients undergo additional chiropractic treatment and physical therapy following their treatment.
The spinal decompression is a gentle, painless intermittent pulling of your neck or back that is so relaxing many patients fall asleep. Ordinary traction pulls both the muscles and spine in a generalized area, with no regard to your bodys response resulting in minimal and temporary results. The treatments with the DRX expands the space between the bones, and restores nutrient flow to the disc which promotes healing. MRI studies have shown that spinal decompression using the DRX9000 returns herniated material back into the disc while regular traction does NOT.
Lou D. had been suffering years after back surgery. “I had back surgery almost 11 years ago, still the pain has not gone away. I had tried everything up to this point, until I found the DRX. Right away it helped my leg pain and localized the pain to my low back, which has been completely manageable with chiropractic and maintenance care.”
Lou is one of many patients who have undergone DRX treatments. For clients who have tried other options, including injections, they believe it has been a lifesaver helping them to “get back to normal or close to normal as possible.”
Additional research is being conducted, but presently the success rate has proven to be about 85% effective. We focus on your pain, so you can focus on more important things. Why would you choose to suffer when you dont have to?
