Spinal Decompression – DRX 9000 Decompression Therapy
Drake Chiropractic is proud to offer our state-of-the-art spinal decompression therapy using the DRX 9000 system. The DRX 9000 helps to relieve lower back pain and other symptoms.
What causes low back pain?
Low back pain can be caused by injuries, stress or even just aging.
The spinal cord protects the vertebrae (bones). But in between the vertebrae, there are soft discs that act as shock absorbers. Most back problems and back pain are caused by discs degenerating (wear and tear causing deterioration of the disc) or herniating (protrusions from the disc that press on surrounding nerves). Both degeneration and herniation cause pain and/or numbness.
If I do the DRX 9000 treatment, how long does it take to see any results?
Most patients report reduced pain after the first couple sessions. Typically, significant improvement is seen after just one to two weeks of treatment.
How long is each treatment?
Sessions are usually 30-45 minutes, daily for the first 2 weeks and 3 times per week for the following 2 weeks. However, these times can vary due to the severity of your case.
What is the success rate of the DRX 9000 Treatment?
Extensive clinical research has shown the DRX 9000 to be very effective in treating herniated and degenerated discs associated with lower back pain and sciatica.
Will my insurance cover the treatment?
Yes, most insurance companies pay for a portion of the program cost. Contact our chiropractic office for more information: (316) 651-0156
