Yorkville practice offers treatment for bulging and herniated discs
At what point do you “throw in the towel” and give up with your back and leg pain? You have been to five different doctors and seem to have six different answers … how is that even possible? Pain killers, muscle relaxers, ibuprofen, steroid injections, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, surgery … where does it stop and how do you find a solution?
The answer can be simple, but you have to ask yourself the right question: What are you looking for?
Medication options are a “quick fix” approach to most back and neck conditions. If you have a bulging or a herniated disc, taking a muscle relaxer, anti-inflammatory medication, or a pain killer isn’t going to “fix” anything. It will mask your symptoms for a short while, but your pain will eventually return. This is also true for spinal steroid injections.
Surgery is typically not a beginning therapy for most patients with back, neck or leg pain. Unless you have lost control of your bowel or bladder, you most likely do not need “emergency back surgery.”
DRX9000 is a non-surgical treatment option that has been available since 1996. In the September 2008 edition of Journal of Medicine, a research report provided by the Mayo Clinic was published demonstrating the effectiveness of the DRX9000 in treating herniated discs in the lower back. The DRX9000 provides true spinal decompression and has a success rate as high as 88.9 percent.
Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville has been providing true spinal decompression with the DRX9000 for the back and neck since March 2006. They have provided well over 15,000 treatments and have similar success in treating herniated discs in the neck and lower back. They were recently featured on the FOX network regarding spinal decompression.
Research has shown that the DRX9000 helps to reduce the pressure on herniated discs. When the pressure is reduced, the herniated disc has the opportunity to come back in to its normal position. Research also shows that it helps to increase blood supply to the disc to help it heal and repair any tears in the tissue.
