According to the Mayo Clinic four out of five people in the United States will experience low back pain at least once during their lives.

Back pain is a very common complaint. It is one of the most common causes for people to miss work or make a trip to the doctor's office.

There is a bright side. Most back pain can be prevented and in treating back pain surgery is rarely needed.

For instance, spinal decompression therapy is a safe yet effective non-surgical way to treat chronic neck and low back pain
Causes of back pain
There are several things that can develop that cause back pain to occur or reoccur.

Spinal decompression therapy

Spinal decompression therapy is a slow and therapeutic elongation of the spine which alleviates pressure on compressed vertebrae and discs. During decompression therapy the patient lies on the spinal decompression table and relaxes while the device applies decompression forces to the injured areas. If needed, it is equipped with a safety switch that enables the patient to immediately stop the decompression forces.

NYC Spinal Decompression NYC

NYC Spinal Decompression NYC- Contact Spinal decompression specialist Dr. Steven Shoshanny-NYC ChiropractorWith millions of back pain sufferers worldwide searching for alternative ways to find chronic back pain relief, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy arises. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy has successfully treated many back pain sufferers who received unsatisfactory results with traditional treatment methods such as bed rest, physical therapy, pain medications, acupuncture, surgery and traction. As new clinical research demonstrating the positive outcomes of this form of therapy continues to surface, it may not take long before it is widely considered to be an effective treatment option for chronic back pain conditions.

In a recent study published in Pain Practice, patient outcomes indicated that chronic low back pain improved 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" indicated 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 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."

Spinal Decompression

Table Notoriety

One of the better-known tables is the DRX9000 from Axiom Worldwide, Tampa, Fla. First appearing in 2001 as the DRX2000, the table has gone through a few incarnations and now features three versions of the same model: the DRX9000, the basic lumbar table; the DRX9000 C, lumbar and cervical combo; and the DRX9500, cervical only. These tables are definitely at the higher end pricewise, running around $100,000, and there are some DCs who say they wouldn't use anything else (including Steven Shoshany, DC, of New York, about whom a profile appeared in the March 2008 issue of Chiropractic Products).

A featured aspect of this table is its Nested Closed-Loop Feedback System, an automatic control system that can adjust and self-correct according to differences between actual and desired output. The system ensures that therapy stays true to each person's logarithmic spinal decompression curve.

Other features and benefits of the DRX9000 include advanced system diagnostics that constantly monitor the device's critical subsystems, a floating lower mattress that allows natural elongation of the patient's spine utilizing special X-1R certified space technology, and a touch-screen computer that allows for easy selection of treatment parameters. There are also highly visible displays that permit monitoring of treatment from across the room, and a patient media system for advanced patient education through DVD/CD presentation.

What is it about this table that commands both the high price and the dedicated clientele? According to Axiom Worldwide marketing analyst Rick Durand, the DRX9000 series succeeds so well—1,700 units sold so far—because of two factors: first, superior components obtained through "exclusive partnerships with several technology corporations," including X-1R Lubricants, and Danaher Motion.

Durand says that in just a few weeks a research report will be issued by one of these companies that will conclusively demonstrate the higher quality of DRX components.

The second dimension of the DRX9000 package is the comprehensive clinical, marketing support, which is provided at no additional cost. These benefits include print collateral and custom graphic advertisements.

"For instance," Durand says, "if the chiropractor wants to create a newspaper ad with a certain message specific to their local area, we would do that at no cost." There is also ongoing training at the clinical level with in-house sessions each month at the Tampa location, and commercials, infomercials, and a strong Internet presence. Durand relates that the DRX9000 is so popular that at a recent NBA playoff game, when the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant grabbed his lower back, the announcer declared, "Looks like Kobe needs the DRX9000!"

On a more serious note, Durand believes that "our research, documentation, and exclusive contracts" are what sets Axiom apart. In the area of patient safety, for instance, a Section 501(K) Summary of Safety and Effectiveness states that, "Axiom Worldwide maintains contact with the clinics administering the therapy, and over the past 12 years, not a single MDR report of injury has been filed for the DRX9000, which reflects the inherent safety of the device."

The company also provides educational podcasts about the DRX9000 on its Web site (, currently featuring Terry Yochum, DC, DACBR, Joseph Perglolizzi, MD, and Kevin Cook, Space Foundation.
