"I Have Stenosis And Arthritis in My Lumbar Spine. Is It Too Late To Rlieve My Back Pain?"

"I Have Stenosis And Arthritis in My Lumbar Spine...Is It Too Late To Rlieve My Back Pain?"

It is advised to get to our office or a doctor close to you before you pain reaches a severe level and before the degeneration becomes extreme. However we have been able to help many patients who thought they were going to somehow just live with their pain. Patient's who were told by another doctor they would have to live with it; or told because of their stenosis "there's nothing we can do."

Sometimes people have tried so many treatments - medication, low back pain injections, accupuncture, physical therapy; that they have just about given up.

Arthritis and back degeneration are the same thing. And stenosis occurs when that breakdown narrows the holes where either your nerves come of your spinal cord or the hole in the back of the spine the spinal cord travels down.

You see, for you to remain pain free and for your body to work like it should, without muscle problems and problems walking or standing for example, all of your nerves must be free from pressure or interference.

When your disc start to deteriorate, they bulge and flatten. Both the bulging and flattening of your discs shrink the hole or space your nerves have to flow out of off of you spinal cord. This is called stenosis.

This is definitely bad news! But the good news is: The DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression may be able to help!!

For ten years I have suffered chronic Lower back pain....

At CT Spine and Disc Center , we help patients everyday who are suffering from chronic low back pain due to sciatica, disc bulges or disc hernations in the low back. Often times these patients have tried Pain medications, physical therapy, chiropractic, cortisone injections, epidural injections as well as pain management to name a few. Below is a patient testimonial we recently received from a patient who had been suffering from lower back pain for 10years:

"For ten years I had suffered chronic lower back pain due to disc compression. I had received conventional chiropractic treatment for years and got limited relief. So I had begun to accept the frustrations of my condition which included limited motion, discomfort when sitting for long periods, or the occasional incident of ‘throwing out my lower back’ which landed me in the bed for several days. I heard about the DRX 9000 decompression treatment, was skeptical but decided to seek treatment when I had a particularly painful episode. I found Dr. Bellinger after much searching online and discovered that he is only one of four chiropractors in CT offering DRX 9000 treatment. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Since receiving treatment, I have been pain free and feel ten years younger. Dr. Bellinger and Dr. Gill are friendly, professional, and a joy to work with.” - Tom.G Bloomfield, Connecticut
