DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Therapy. Who is a Candidate? Part III

What kinds of results can Elderly Patients expect from DRX9000 Non-surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy?
I have treated many elderly patients with the DRX9000 at my San Francisco Spinal Decompression Center. Some with great success, and some with not much success at all. What I have learned, is we need to be really clear in the beginning about what our goals are. In other words, we need to "manage expectations". Sometimes, it's just not very realistic to expect a whole lot from the DRX9000, when the spine has badly deteriorated from 80 years of hard wear and tear, and neglect. However, I have seen some really bad spines, come back to life with the DRX 9000 spinal decompression therapy. Here's the deal...If we go into treatment with the expectation that even a little bit of improvement will be a success, then we set the stage for a favorable outcome.
Here's another interesting thing I found out...Some senior citizens have better looking spines than their children. It all depends on their lifestyle and habits. I have had several senior citizens that had pretty good spines except for one or two herniations, and they did really well with the DRX9000 treatment. Some of my senior DRX9000 alumni come in periodically for maintenance decompression sessions.
So, in reality the DRX9000 non-surgical spinal decompressionsystem may or may not help you. But the good news is, it will probably not hurt you. As I have mentioned before, as far as I know there has not been a single case of the DRX9000 causing permanent bodily harm. The same contraindications apply as mentioned previously. In addition, anyone with advanced stage osteoporosis, tumors, fractures, surgical fusion, aortic aneurysm, and some others, would not qualify. All in all, the DRX9000 is a great tool, and an option that makes sense for the right people. I have many happy senior DRX9000 alumni, and I have a few that went through the entire program and did not respond. So, you have to decide for yourself if you think it is worth the time, money, and effort. And, we will do our best to help you make an informed decision.
