Painful Paul - re: DRX9000

Painful Paul said : "Next Monday, I am having my first disk decompression treatment. Its non invasive, supposedly 80-85% effective and looks pretty good on paper. I could not find any boards here that talked about that. Its the DRX 9000 machine.

If that fails... I am still scheduled for artificial disk REPLACEMENT, in Germany on April 20. They are going to replace 4-5 and 5-1 with Maverick prosthetic disks, keeping the joints mobile. I am not cancelling my schedule on that until I see if the drx helps any."


[COLOR="Blue"]Hi Paul, I moved this to your own post so as not to interrupt the other persons post.

You stated that you could not find any boards here that talked about the DRX 9000.

Actutally we have had many discussions about this topic on this particular board. Look up at the top of this message board and you will see what is called a "sticky post" with the heading DRX 9000.... You will find many of discussing this topic to include me.

I spent over $4K on on my decompression and it was only a bandaid. It will not provide any rehydration or recession of a herniated disc. I can honestly say that my spine FELT BETTER overall, as it gives your back a very serious workout. I had an MRI done before and after and there was no change made at all.

I did everything I could think of to prevent surgery being done, so I spent $4K that I didnt have to go through it. I can tell you being on this side of the surgery fence now, I would not have wasted my money on the program. And NONE of my 4 surgeons were interested in the program other than to say that it had no merits.

I just wanted to share this with you. All the best to you. [/COLOR] Tammy

Hi Tammy /Paul

Good Luck with your pain[/B][/COLOR]

Re: Painful Paul - re: DRX9000

I had called about it, and they told me if you would benefit from traction then this might help. When I first herniated discs the traction did help. The doctors told me this would no longer be of any help. Good luck, and its awesome you get to see the docs in germany.....awesome. I have read alot about them....wonderful sucess storys. I have also read they have fixed alot of people who have been deemed unfixable...which ones are you seeing..I always said if I won the lottery...I'd be headed straight to germany.
