How Our DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression System Work

Spinal decompression is a treatment in which forces are applied to the spine in order to maximize spinal elongation. In order to accomplish this, the paraspinal muscles, the muscles which protect the spine from injury, are relaxed, enabling your chiropractor to apply spinal decompressive forces to spread the vertebrae of the spine. Spinal decompression can be very effective at relieving pressure on nerves and intervertebral discs, facilitating the movement of spinal fluid.

Conditions Treated

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I first experienced server lower back pain in July 2006. A friend and patient of Dr. Guerin's recommended that I schedule a consultation, which I did. Upon reviews of my previous MRIs, Dr. Guerin opined that I was a qualified candidate for treatment on the DRX 9000. After the first three of four treatments, I was relatively pain-free and disposed of the cane I was using in order to walk. In my fifth week of treatment, I was completely pain-free. I was looking forward to spring when I felt I woul

    It was April 2011 and I had been exercising pretty aggressively the I did something and my hip gave out and subsequently my back was Intolerably painful.

The sciatic pain disappeared and I could sleep through the night, stand up straight once again and not fear that my legs would give out. Even though I knew I had vas

    I suffered for months with debilitating sciatic pain and nothing seemed to relieve it. I decided to try chiropractic care rather than pain medication. Dr. Guerin suggested a regiment including the DRX9000 treatment along with electrical muscle stimulation and adjustments. In just a few treatments, my pain was gone and has not come back. The DRX9000 was extremely comfortable and has become a relaxing part of my week that I look forward to.

    I have had a drop foot and moderate neuropathy in my left leg as well as numbing leg pain in the entire leg. An MRI showed that I have herniated discs at several levels in my lower back as well as stenosis. Conventional options were described to me as surgery, epidurals to physical therapy. The therapy helped somewhat but did not stop the pain or help the neuropathy. I decided to try the DRX 9000 decompression therapy. Halfway thru the prescribed treatment protocol, my pain essential disappeared

    Mr. Frank M

    When I first visited Westport Chiropractic the pain in my lower back so severe. Two years ago surgery was performed on my back which proved to be unsuccessful. I became desperate to find an alternative solution. Westport Chiropractic under the care of Dr. Patrick Guerin was the overwhelming choice in what I needed to repair very painful back pain. Dr. Guerin so carefully and professionally explained the results I would feel using the DRX 9000 machine. Using the DRX9000 is very comfortable and ve
