DRX 9000 NYC

Case Study reveals an increase in Disc Height and a decrease in size of Disc Herniation after treatment with the DRX9000

New, 2008: The DRX9000 True Non-surgical Spinal Decompression System™ was developed to provide a non-invasive option for discogenic low back pain. Researchers of a case report published in Volume 2 Issue 1 of the European Musculoskeletal Review state, “Evidence-based data that show the promising effects of DRX9000 on the safe and effective treatment of LBP [low back pain] continue to accumulate.” The report titled, “Management of Low-Back Pain with a Non-surgical Decompression System (DRX9000™) – Case Report” reveals the pre- and post-treatment MRI findings of a 69-year old male with low back pain. Prior to treatment with the DRX9000, the patient reported experiencing low back pain radiating into both legs. When asked to describe his pain intensity on a scale of 0-10, the patient rated his pain intensity at 10. The patient underwent 22 treatments over a seven-week period. Utilizing the same pain intensity scale the patient reported a pain level of 1 post-treatment. Four months after the initial visit a follow up MRI revealed decreased herniation size and increased disc height at multiple lumbar levels. The authors conclude, “This case report further builds on previous findings that have demonstrated improvements in disc morphology after treatment with the DRX9000.”

Spinal decompression NYC, Herniated disc specialist

So many choices in Spinal decompression systems which one to go with?
I will make it easy for you, Last time I counted there where about 21 different spinal decompression systems currently available all different price points.
I still think that the DRX 9000 is the best system on the market, No I don't work for them. The reason being first and foremost, "the studies" all the major studies coming out on spinal decompression are done on the DRX 9000 system. Visit their website at DRX 9000.
It is also the most comfortable to the patient and it is user friendly to the doctor.
I remember when I first started with my 3D active trac, by the end of the day I needed Spinal decompression! The DRX is easy on the doctor and it is a sturdy machine that is built to last.
I have colleagues that bought knockoff's and are complaining to me everyday.
Why by a knockoff watch or a cheaper pair of sunglasses? I always invest in the best so I know I offer the best.
I combine Cox flexion distraction decompression with DRX 9000 and SpineForce 3D rehab along with Cold laser, this works great for my patients.
Any questions please feel free to email me at
If you are in SOHO feel free to visit the new office

Spinal Decompression NYC

Study published in Pain Practice, indicates that chronic low back pain may improve with treatment on the DRX9000 True Non-surgical Spinal Decompression System

The study titled, “Treatment of 94 Outpatients With Chronic Discogenic Low Back Pain with the DRX9000: A Retrospective Chart Review,” indicates that patients with a mean pain duration of 535 weeks (Over 10 years) reported a mean verbal numerical pain intensity rating equal to 6.05 on a 0 to 10 scale prior to treatment with the DRX9000™.

Patients were treated at four randomly chosen clinics throughout the United States. They received 30-minute DRX9000 sessions daily for the first 2 weeks tapering to 1 session/week.

After the completion of the DRX9000 True Non-surgical Spinal Decompression System therapy, the mean verbal numerical pain intensity rating decreased to a statistically and clinically significant rating of 0.89.

Furthermore, patients also reported a decrease in analgesic use and improvement in activities of daily living.

The authors were able to follow-up at a mean 31 weeks with 29 patients and reveal mean values of 83% improvement in back pain and satisfaction of 8.55 on a 10-point scale. None of these 29 patients reported requiring surgery. The authors also acknowledge that there are other spinal decompression systems available commercially. However, they suggest that the design difference between these devices, “…may lead to differing physical responses to therapy, so studies of one type of apparatus should not readily be applied across all machines.”

The reason i posted this recent study is because I applaud Axiomworldwide for connecting with the mayo Clinic, Stanford Universty and John Hopkins university.
The only thing needed now is double blind clinical studies to confirm that Spinal Decompression on the DRX 9000 is effective enough to become the standard of care for treatment of the Herniated Disc.
