Back pain solution?

Everyone suffers back pain at some point and Brooklands Integrated Healthcare Ltd in Longford has a solution with the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression.

The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Decompression System aims to provides relief of pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs, bulging or protruding intervertebral discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica. The therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical. The DRX9000 is now another solution for chronic back and neck pain patients who have tried other pain relief options without success, and who wish to avoid the risks of surgery, or for whom surgery is not an option. The theory behind spinal decompression is a process whereby forces are applied to the spine in a manner that maximises spinal elongation. Where this spinal elongation occurs, pressure drops within the disc which facilitates movement of fluid, carrying nutrients and oxygen inside the damaged disc. Pressure is relieved on nerves and intervertebral discs thus reducing the back pain and symptoms.
The average treatment protocol is (20 x one hour sessions) over a six week period on the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression bed with cryotherapy and electrical stimulation after each treatment. This is then followed by six weeks of rehabilitation under the same team of professionals using the MedX Core Fitness System to strengthen the spinal core muscles and improve flexibility and stamina.
The treatment has been administered at Brooklands Integrated Healthcare in Ireland since August 2007 with a high degree of success, with the most recent controlled research programmes in the US, where the treatment has been available since 2000, show a success of 89 per cent which is very high for chronic back pain treatments.
The team at Brooklands Integrated Healthcare Centre shares a progressive attitude in finding ways to assist customers in optimising the quality of their lives. Other therapies coming soon include homeopathy, kinesiology and vice on nutrition.
