This is a question that I have been asked many times over the years and the answer is, it depends. It depends on what’s causing the low back pain, there are lots of causes to low back pain and that’s why one treatment works for someone and not for another person. As my dad would say “you need the right tool for the job”.
Usually, when I see someone who has been suffering from chronic low back pain they’ve already tried taking a number of different medications muscle relaxants and painkillers, tried physical therapy or acupuncture or had Cortisone injections or even tried spinal surgery.
The reason why chronic low back pain can be so resistant to other therapies is because of the physical changes caused by the long-lasting biomechanical dysfunctions of the spine such as myofascial adhesions, degenerated disc disease, herniated and bulging discs and posterior facet hypertrophy.
The above changes for chronic low back pain are specific kinds of conditions that spinal decompression was designed to help. Spinal decompression with the DRX9000 simply put is just the most advanced form of spinal traction used today.
