Non-surgical Spinal Decompression therapy was developed by a medical physician in response to the demand for safer, cost-effective alternatives to spine surgery for herniated and degenerated disks, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, and the serious pain and disability these conditions cause. Surgeries for chronic or severe back pain and neck pain have risen sharply in the United States in recent years. This is due to many factors, not the least of which is the increase in SECOND and THIRD surgeries (called “revision” surgeries) performed due to poor results or complications from the first surgery. Many experts believe we are NOT winning the war on back pain, and some long term follow-up studies indicate no overall advantage to having surgery in the absence of significant loss of strength or the rare loss of bowel or bladder function.
We have an affordable solution! We use the DRX 9000 for disc herniations in the low back and neck, for lumbar spinal stenosis, for facet syndromes and for other difficult conditions such as spondylolisthesis. For non-resolving neck problems we utilize the DRX 9000c. We are Colorado’s trusted leader in spinal decompression therapy because of our past experience working closely with fellowship trained spine surgeons (including both neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons) since 1987. Our chiropractic physicians will sit down with you, review your MRI findings and determine if you are a candidate for decompression therapy. Unlike other clinics in the Denver metro area you will NOT be subjected to a tacky “high-pressure, act now” sales pitch, and you won’t be asked to prepay thousands of dollars for our care. You’ll be free to go home, do some more research and consider all the facts and all your options prior to choosing whether this method is right for you. As always with our very personalized, caring manner, there is no hype and no nonsense.
We don’t offer DRX 9000 decompression therapy as a first-line treatment for everyone. Here’s why: Because not all back and neck problerms are alike. Every patient’s needs are different. In determining the right kind of conservative care for your persistent back, neck or sciatic problem your history, your response to prior therapies, your current medications, your MRI findings, and your current examination and laboratory findings are all taken into consideration.
While we know you might be desperate and willing to pay a lot for relief, we offer non-surgical spinal decompression therapy session using the DRX 9000 (for either the low back or neck) at the lowest fees you’ll find anywhere. The fees associated with DRX 9000 care at other clinics have given this technology a poor reputation within the local spine care and online community and serves as a barrier for many who might benefit from this often surgery-sparing treatment. But because you deserve to make a decision based on facts and not heresay, turf wars or negative selection bias, we continue to offer this viable therapy. According to back pain expert Richard Deyo, MD, most people with disc herniations will NOT need surgery. But all too often many Coloradans are not given the opportunity to consider this form of therapy we have found to be quite satisfactory for the majority of properly selected patients.
Again, we do not want cost to be a barrier, so this care is offered at fees anyone can afford, with no large pre-paid lump sums collected up front. We’re good at what we do, and though nothing is spine medicine is 100%, there’s a very good chance you’ll achieve lasting benefit if we determine you’d be a good candidate for the DRX 9000 / 9000c.
