Until you experience a back injury, you have no real understanding of how debilitating it is. Virtually every movement uses one of the back or adjoining muscles. Back pain sufferers experience numbness, weakness, and reduced functioning of the limbs. Back pain interferes with work, sleep, and relaxation as well. If your injury progresses to the point where the disc material moves into spaces occupied by nerves, you are facing back surgery…well until now that is. With the inception of the DRX9000 and the ABS spinal decompression machines, patients now have a non- surgical option to relieve the nonstop pain they have been experiencing.
The technology today appears to be a dream come true for those who suffer with compressed disks. Some may say that it is too good to be true, but research indicates that 92% patients report overall improvement; of these, 5% improved 25-50%; 17% improved 50-75%; 70% improved 75-100%. (Gose, Naguszewski & Naguszewski , The Journal of Neurological Research, Volume 20)
As more people are experiencing relief and full recovery using the technology available, this dream becomes a reality.If you have tried with chiropractic manipulations, physical therapy, drugs, and do not want to assume the risks associated with back surgery, then spinal decompression is the next logical choice.
Spinal decompression therapy is an FDA cleared treatment and has a high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs…even after failed surgery. It is a non-surgical, computerized traction based treatment for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. During this procedure, by cycling through specific traction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, spinal disc pressure may be reduced allowing accelerated disc healing.
After significant research, our office chose the 3D Active Trac system manufactured by The Saunders Group (See picture above). The 3D ActiveTrac is one of the smoothest performing, most advanced traction/decompression tables made. Its all-in-one design and state-of-the-art features allow the widest range of therapeutic techniques for treatment of herniated or degenerated discs.
