Aptel et al. You can find the study in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders 2010, 11:155
Here’s what they found: Before and after a six week treatment period with spinal decompression low back relief correlated with a disc height increase.
How did they do it? 30 patients with an average age of 65 were treated with the DRX 9000. 21 females and 9 males with lumbar disc herniation and low back pain were assessed via a verbal pain scale disc height was measured with CT scans.
We also use the DRX 9000 Non-surgical Spinal Decompression in our office. I have watched patients’ pain level decrease and/or vanish as well as other symptoms like tingling or numbness in the legs.
