DRX 9000 can it work for my advanced back problems

I have 2 herniated discs and a pinched nerve and more than one surgeon has said I'd be a perfect candidate for artificial disc replacement. However, as you could probably guess, my health insurance company so far has refused to pay for that procedure.

They will it seems pay for DRX 9000 therapy however. I'm going to carry the battle on with them to get the ADR surgery whether I'm ultimately successful or not, but in the meantime I just don't feel like I can let time pass me by anymore not having a back that I can use for much more than barely getting around.

Can this machine really fix my condition or does it just relieve some of the pain? I'm afraid if its successful at all it may make me think that I'm cured and then I try to do too much and end up in the ER.

I had already canceled the consultation because I'm looking for a cure, not just relief. Relief without a cure can be more dangerous than anything.

Re: DRX 9000 can it work for my advanced back problems

I looked into the DX9000 and there are no real studies done by reputable doctors that I could find. It looks really good in theory but I am concerned that there are only chiropractors promoting this machine. I personally decided not to try it on the basis of lack of scientific evidence and studies. I have had nerve involvement and am concerned that further damage might be done. Best to consult your doctors before trying it.
