The DRX9000 Decompression Therapy System
A 63 year old woman was referred to my practice, through a friend, with a very serious pain in her right leg and right buttocks. She had extreme pain causing near constant limitations (Over 80% of the time). The patient stated her mobility was limited and was “missing out” on everything. She was in this condition for the past 3-4 weeks and recalls having this problem 4-5 years ago. In 2010 the patient had five epidurals and in 2012 three epidurals with minimal results. She also has had physical therapy with minimal results as well. This woman was taking Percocet every six to seven hours and barely slept.
A detailed history and thorough examination were performed on the patient. I then reviewed her lower back x-rays and lumbar spine MRI and concluded that she was a candidate for our DRX9000 Decompression Therapy system. I sent this woman home with a DVD of the DRX9000 to watch with her husband to make an informed decision. After watching the DVD, she called the next day to schedule her series of appointments on the DRX9000.
You see, first you have to be a candidate for this technology and second you must be willing to undergo a treatment plan of five days a week for two weeks, then three days a week for two weeks, and finally twice a week for two weeks. Thirdly, the cost of this treatment is $1,500 which is substantially less then undergoing a low back surgery.
In the ensuing weeks the patient first felt less pain in her right lateral calf and then it disappeared. At the end of the fourth week, her low back/right buttocks pain was minimal. By the end of the 20th treatment, the patient was pain free. In her fourth week, she was given stretching and strengthening exercises to enhance her range of motion and strengthen her core. I then referred the patient to a personal trainer for more advanced strengthening exercises.
If you, a family member, or friend is having difficulties with low back pain and leg pain, please have them call Dr. Les Pachter, the Chiropractor at 561-477-8588.
