Spinal Decompression

In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems was usually given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren’t progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option… until now. Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression Therapy was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Really Work?

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.

Ranging from dull to debilitating, 9/10 Americans suffer from headaches at some point in time. A chiropractor (like our very own Dr. Ruscitti) can help to correct the cause of these headaches, not just cover up the symptoms. These causes may be due to nutrition, environmental concerns, posture, and more.

The most common reason people see a chiropractor, 80% of people have a problem with back pain at some point in their life. Causes include accidents, posture, obesity, or conditions such as arthritis.

Possible causes for this condition include pressure on the spinal nerves such as a herniated disk, sitting for too long in one position, injury, carpal tunnel, Stroke, , Multiple Sclerosis, lack of blood flow, and more. We can determine the cause and help you to take steps to correct it, especially if it is recurring/persistent.

Hydromassage therapy utilizes whirlpool jets to massage the neck & back for a relaxing-dry hydrotherapy treatment. Heated water is pumped, under pressure, through a series of three rotational hydro-jets inside a water-filled mattress. The water movement created by the jets provides the massage and is similar to the action of a whirlpool or spa. Hydromassage stimulates soft tissues, increases blood and lymph circulation while breaking up scar tissue between muscle fibers. Hydromassage generally produces an overall relaxed feeling. Patients are soothed by the heat of the water and experience a reduction in pain to affected areas.
