Non-surgical spinal decompression using the DRX 9000 True Spinal Decompression System has been shown to be very effective treating specifically; herniated discs, disc bulges, and sciatica caused by a disc problem. It also has good results with spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease, but these cases require a greater level of assessement. Proper examination and neurological evaluation of each case along with a review of the MRI's help us make the appropriate clinical decision. The fact that the Southern California Spine Center has treated almost 1000 cases successfully gives us alot of clinical experience to reflect upon and helps us to best serve the patient who are suffering with these conditions. We are also looking for certain markers that would disqualify patients from care or potentially lead to a negative result. Our results are excellent and one of the reasons we are San Diegos leading non-surgical spinal decompression center.
We have heard from many patients a contradictory opinion as to whether or not spinal decompression will help them from their orthopedic surgeons. To give you an idea of the feed back from orthopedic surgeons, of the patients who asked their spine specialists if they should consider this treatment, 95% said don't bother. Keep in mind that the mayo clinic published a study that showed an 88.9% success rate using the DRX 9000 on herniated discs. What can I say it's a competition thing....the ortho's don,t want to lose the business. Fortunately these patients acted inspite of the Surgeons recommendation of surgery. They made this choice because what we explained to them made sense and it was what they were most comfortable with, gladly they avoided surgery and are feeling great.
