Are you suffering from Chronic Back Pain?
If you suffer from chronic back pain, you likely have a personal diary filled with "war stories" describing unsuccessful remedies designed to ease your discomfort. These failed remedies could include; frequent bed rest, high doses of pain medication, perhaps even non-traditional approaches such as acupuncture. Like many before you, the phrase --- "I'll just have to live with it!" is viewed as your fate.
Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, a major advancement in medical technology has been made that effectively treats low back pain resulting from herniated or degenerative discs. The result of these efforts, the creation of the DRX9000™, not only significantly reduces back pain in 86% of patients, but enables the majority of patients to return to a more normal and active lifestyle.
Common Causes of Back Pain
The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord. Protecting the spinal cord are vertebrae (bones), protected in turn by discs made of a gelatin-like substance. These Spinal Discs function as shock absorbers for the spinal bones. The tremendous stress that is placed on the bones of the spine can result in a herniation or "bulging" of a spinal disc. This is a common cause of lower back pain.Another common cause of back pain is disc degeneration, caused by a drying out of the disc area. Over the course of time, or through injury, discs may lose their gelatin-like fluids. This loss of fluid will cause disc degeneration and result in the dried disc inducing pressure on the spinal nerves. The result is extreme muscle tension and back pain.
The DRX9000™ was created to effectively treat these conditions and help patients live a pain-free life.
About the DRX9000™
DRX9000™ uses state-of-the-art technology to gradually relieve neural compression often associated with lower back pain. The process has been proven to relieve pain by enlarging disc space, reducing disc space by stretching outer ligaments to help move herniated areas back into place, and reversing high intradiscal pressures through application of negative pressure.
Your DRX9000™ treatment begins with a series of daily sessions, followed by treatments several times a week as needed. Each session consists of 30–45 minutes on the DRX9000™. Following each therapy session, a cold pack is applied to help paravertebral muscles consolidate after treatment. An exercise and nutrition supplement regimen is prescribed to help stabilize the weakened areas.
An upper chest harness/shoulder support is used to help distribute the applied forces evenly. Once in place, you are slowly reclined to a horizontal position. Following the physician’s orders, the therapist localizes the pain, makes any adjustments and directs the treatment to the proper area. DRX9000™ helps to mobilize the troubled disc segment without inducing further damage to the spine.
