For the past 16 years or so, at our SF Financial District Chiropractic Centers, we have helped hundreds, if not thousands of patients with chronic severe neck pain.
Just like I have said before...every single case has been different. Sure there are similarities, and you learn from them...but recommendations are made case by case.
I can have two patients the same age and sex, with the same x-rays or MRI of the neck, and they both have different signs and symptoms. Maybe patient one has neck pain only. Maybe patient two has severe arm pain and weakness of grip...but no neck pain at all...even though the problem is in the neck.
Some patients respond to chiropractic care...some don't...or maybe just a little. Or, they have to keep coming over and over or else the symptoms return. These are usually patients that have herniated cervical discs.
Sometimes the discs get jammed up against the spinal cord or cervical nerve roots, and therapy and chiropractic just can't do much. Well...this is where the DRX9000c nonsurgical spinal decompression machine comes to the rescue. The DRX9000c was designed and built to remove neurovascular compression associated with cervical disc bulges and herniations. And it will often do this...when nothing else will.
