Post-Surgical Pain

Typically, someone suffering from disc issue was usually given pain meds, instructed to stop all physical activities, referred for physiotherapy, and when they weren’t progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative Physiotherapy proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option… until now.

Thankfully, you don’t have to live with pain from disc issues anymore. Thanks to the research of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy was developed to effectively treat lower back pain, neck pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy not only significantly reduces back pain in many people, but also enables the majority of clients to return to more activities they enjoy.

Spinal Decompression

Data from a recent multi-center pilot study utilizing Axiom Worldwide’s DRX9000 Reveals a Dramatic Success Rate of 88.9%!

The clinical results of an IRB-approved prospective, multi-center, phase II, non-randomized pilot study utilizing the DRX9000 was presented at the annual New York State Society of Anesthesiologists PGA meeting in New York City December 7-11, 2007. The study, authored by Dr. John Leslie of The Mayo Clinic, was designed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the DRX9000 in the treatment of chronic lower back pain. Patients enrolled in the study had suffered an overall average of ten years of chronic back pain. After two weeks of treatments on the DRX9000 there was a 50% reduction in pain scores and upon completion of the entire six week protocol an amazing success rate of 88.9% was documented.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression uses new cutting edge, state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve disc and nerve compression often associated with low back pain, neck pain and sciatica.

Spinal Decompression, not to be confused with simple traction, gradually lengthens and decompresses the spinal discs, creating negative pressures within the centre of the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into the disc, taking pressure off pinched nerves resulting in pain relief. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are also pulled into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.

At the start of each treatment, you will be fitted with a harness designed to achieve optimal decompression of the low back or neck. During a treatment of non-surgical spinal decompression you will notice a gentle lengthening of your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure. The treatment process is safe and effective. While some patients with extensively injured discs have reported mild discomfort during the first few treatment sessions, their discomfort subsides upon subsequent visits. A patient safety switch provides an extra safety feature, allowing you to stop at any point should you feel discomfort. Each treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes. Individual patient results may vary.

While traction, physical therapy, and manipulation may reduce disc pressures to as low as 40 mm Hg, only spinal decompression has been shown to achieve negative pressures within the spine. It has been clinically proven that spinal decompression creates negative pressures as low as -110 mm Hg3 within the injured disc during the treatment session. Normally, pulls exerted on the spine trigger sensory receptors in the back to tighten the muscles surrounding the vertebrae and discs in an effort to protect them from injury. Spinal Decompression bypasses this response by slowly pulling on the spine and relaxing the back over an extended period of time, allowing the discs to be repositioned without tension and without causing spasm and muscle guarding.

    About two years ago I injured my lower back which caused restricted movement and a lot of sciatica pain in my left leg.
    I tried ignoring it, hoping it would get better over time. surprisingly it didn't.
    I went for a scan and the
    … More the consultant said my only option was an operation to remove the section of herniated disc that was applying pressure onto the sciatica nerve. To be honest the taught of an operation scared me.
    So I decided to try alternative treatment first.
    I tried Physiotherapy, with no success. Then I tried amatsu treatment, still no success. This was leaving me with no option but to have the operation.
    One evening on Facebook an add for DC physiotherapy pop up on my page, I contacted Dave and arranged an appointment. During the appointment he completed an assessment and said he can fix my back within 8 - 10 session. To be honest I was very sceptic about this treatment. But it was worth a try.
    8 session later and some home exercises (not too much). I am delighted to say I am 100% better....I was even digging up the garden last weekend and laying down railway sleepers.. I never taught this would of been possible again...
    I would highly recommend DC physiotherapy and this treatment to anyone who is suffering like I was..My only regret is that I didn't find it sooner.. I could of saved myself a fortune..🤣
    Dave, Thanks again for all your help. I really do appreciate you help in getting me back to a pain free life.

    I can highly recommend DC Physiotherapy in Clondalkin Village. I experienced lower back pain over the last 3-4 months as a result of working from home and it was starting to take its toll. I heard about DC Physiotherapy from friends and … More I am delighted I made an appointment to see David as within 5 mins, he was able to provide a root cause for the pain. Three sessions later and I am back running pain free. Thanks David for your guidance and genuine interest in my well being.
