Cervical Disc Herniations are very responsive to Spinal Decompression Therapy featuring the DRX 9000C

We have successfully been treating repetitive strain injuries at our San Francisco Back and Wrist Pain center for many years now. We have actually developed various protocols that have been taught around the world to other doctors and therapist. But, up until recently we were unable to treat patients with multiple level disc herniations and spinal stenosis in the neck. It would just be too painful and would often irritate the problem. That was until we incorporated the DRX 9000C into our treatment protocol. We initiate the treatment with spinal decompression therapy, which reduces the disc bulges and herniations, while at the same time re-hydrates the discs and strengthens the outer ligaments. This makes the spine much stronger, reduces the inflammation and muscle spasms, and makes it so we can incorporate some very gentle physical therapy and rehabilitation procedures. Then, we build on this slowly based on the patients tolerance taking the spine to a much higher set point as far as function and resistance are concerned. This becomes a permanent change. Then, we incorporate a home care regimen and routine maintenance visits to make sure it lasts. Surgery of the cervical spine is no fun. I am proud to say we have helped many patients avoid surgery and return to pain free lives. Sometimes it takes a while, and every once in a while what we do does not work. But, since we are not cutting into the body or putting chemicals into the body, the risks are low. The treatment is very safe and the success rates are high. It's worth a shot if you are considering surgery and feel you have no where to turn. Chances are, you will be glad you did.
