Case Study reveals visual evidence of the positive hydrating effect that DRX9000™ Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression treatment has on the inter-vertebr

Tampa, FL, FEBRUARY 20, 2008: The DRX9000 aims to relieve pain by enlarging intra-discal spaces, reducing herniation, and decreasing intra-discal pressure during treatment. A case report underwritten with a grant from Axiom Worldwide is now featured in issue 2 of US Musculoskeletal Review 2007. The case study titled, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Findings after Treatment with a Non-surgical Spinal Decompression System (DRX9000™)-Case Report reveals the pre- and post-MRI findings of a 33-year old male with a six year history of low back pain. Prior to treatment with the DRX9000 an MRI of the lumbar spine revealed moderate degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine with loss of disc signal at most levels, as well as disc bulges at L3/L4, L4/L5, and L5/S1. The patient also reported an overall pain level of 6 on a 0-10 scale. The patient underwent DRX9000 treatment over a six-week period. At his final DRX9000 treatment, the patient reported a pain level of 0. Follow-up MRI showed an increase in intra-discal signal on T2-weighted sagittal images at L2/L3, L3/L4, L4/L5, and L5/S1, reflecting an improvement in disc morphology. The authors conclude, “Our case report demonstrates the positive hydrating effect that the DRX9000 treatment has on the inter-vertebral disc.”
