Many herniated disc patients are told they need back surgery. Maybe they do, but maybe they don't. How are they to know for sure?

Welcome to the life of a spinal decompression doctor. This is what we are dealing with every day! I would like to give you our take on the situation.

A herniated disc patient should NOT rush into back surgery, because once they do, in many cases, they will be permanently disqualified from trying non-surgical spinal decompression.

We have helped hundreds of herniated cervical and lumbar disc patients return to more active lifestyles with the DRX-9000. Many have been able to avoid back or neck surgery as well. Sure, there are always some that do not respond favorably to decompression therapy, but they are the minority. What typically happens is patients end up a lot better than they were and are glad they did the treatment. Some have a complete resolution of symptoms.

Hand pain is very common for people that spend the majority of their day sitting at a desk in front of a computer.

When it comes to hand pain, the source of the pain is not always in the hand itself. In fact, more often than not, the source of the arm or hand pain is pinched nerves in the neck. That's right! Pinched nerves in the NECK can cause the same type of hand pain that pinched nerves in the HAND or wrist can cause (known as carpal tunnel syndrome).

Dropping a few pounds may result in positive aesthetic results, of course, but weight loss has a number of health benefits. One such benefit is decreased pressure and strain on your body's joints, like knees and ankles. This important benefit is the main reason medical offices are promoting fat loss "systems" or programs. Unfortunately, not all fat reduction systems are equally effective.

The cervical disc decompression machine we own and operate is the DRX-9000c. The DRX-9000c is fully computerized. It has a built-in biofeedback mechanism that senses the patient's response to treatment, making adjustments accordingly. The cervical decompression system is able to target a specific spinal disc in the neck, such as the C5/C6 disc. The computer adjusts the angle of pull according to which cervical disc is being treated.
