Spinal Decompression is a nonsurgical, noninvasive, drug-free treatment method for disc-related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine. At Living Well Medical, many people have found relief from the pain associated with
and many other spinal disorders.
Spinal Disc Decompression uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, nonsurgical decompression to your spine. The resulting increased blood flow into the spinal discs and joints helps to relieve pain, remove inflammatory and toxic biochemicals from the area, and restore function and mobility.
At Living Well Medical we use the exclusive DRX 9000 machine, the best nonsurgical Spinal Decompression table on the market.
Spinal Disc Decompression - an FDA-cleared technology - relieves pain by enlarging the space between spinal discs. Spinal Disc Decompression exerts negative pressure which relieves compression on discs and nerves, allowing the herniated and bulging discs to eventually return to their normal positions.
Spinal Disc Decompression is the only treatment that is most effective for severe cases of disc herniation, disc degeneration, arthritis, spinal stenosis, and pressure on the nerve root. A clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technology Review in 2004 demonstrated spinal pain relief in many cases of disc compression.
The spinal disc - composed of soft cartilaginous material - separates the spinal vertebras and acts as a shock absorber. Each disc contains a gel-like center called the nucleus and has a fibrous outer covering called the annulus. The blood supply to spinal discs is normally sparse, so if a disc is injured it may continue to degenerate and not heal properly. Spinal Disc Decompression provides the important therapeutic benefit of increasing the height of the disc space, providing more room for the disc and allowing it to return to normal size and function.
Spinal Disc Decompression also causes the disc to heal by stimulating regeneration of the disc cartilage. Spinal Disc Decompression increases blood supply to the disc, providing important nutrients which facilitate the healing response.
To prequalify a patient and ensure that Spinal Disc Decompression will be beneficial, Dr. Steven Shoshany - a New York Chiropractor - will take a complete history, perform a physical examination, and review all data, including MRIs.
Dr. Shoshany is an expert in the delivery of Spinal Disc Decompression therapy. He has dedicated a large portion of his practice to the relief of severe and chronic low back pain and cervical pain, assisting thousands of patients to return to a normal, pain-free life.
Dr. Shoshany holds a U.S. patent on his Spinal Disc Decompression methodology.
In addition to Spinal Disc Decompression on the DRX 9000, Dr. Steven Shoshany's unique approach utilizes a wide range of state-of-the-art evaluation and therapeutic procedures. Living Well Medical patients receive the best and most complete treatment available.
Evaluation and Treatment at Living Well Medical may include
The DRX 9000 is the only system that has earned FDA 510K clearance to be called true spinal decompression. The DRX 9000 is the only system with a documented significant success rate. The DRX 9000 offers precise treatment using a closed-loop feedback system. The unit targets the specific disc level based on videofluoroscopy studies.
The DRX 9000 uses state-of-the-art technology to gradually relieve compression of spinal nerves associated with lower back pain or cervical pain. The process has been proven to relieve pain by
Your DRX 9000 treatment begins with a series of daily sessions for two weeks, followed by treatments three times per week as needed. Each session consists of 30-45 minutes on the DRX 9000. Following each therapy session, a cold pack with electrical muscle stimulation is applied to assist in the stabilization of the paravertebral muscles.
An upper chest harness / shoulder support is used to help distribute the applied forces evenly. Then you are slowly reclined to a horizontal position. Following the physician's orders, the therapist localizes the pain, makes any needed adjustments, and directs treatment to the proper area. The DRX 9000 helps to mobilize the affected disc segment and begin the process of pain relief and recovery.
Pain associated with herniated discs, protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and failed back surgery will respond to treatment using Spinal Disc Decompression. The DRX 9000 achieves these effects through decompression of intervertebral discs.
After only three weeks of treatment, clinical studies have shown outstanding results in relieving debilitating pain caused by bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs; sciatica; posterior facet syndrome; spinal stenosis; and many failed back surgery cases.
Pre- and post-treatment MRIs have shown greater-than-50% reductions in the size and extent of disc herniations after four weeks of treatment with the DRX 9000.
During the initial clinical study many patients reported relief of back pain following treatment with the DRX 9000.
