Pro Health offers the latest cutting-edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic neck and lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:
- Back Pain
- Herniated and/or bulging discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal Stenosis
- Failed Back Surgery
In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems usually was 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 was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. Spinal Decompression 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 really work?
Spinal Decompression has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery. Since its release, clinical studies have revealed an amazing success rate in treating lumbar disc related problems with Spinal Decompression.
How does it work? Spinal Decompression uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica.
Does the treatment hurt?
No, in fact, most patients fall asleep during their treatments.
Contact our office today to schedule an initial consultation with the Doctor to determine if you are a candidate for care. After carefully studying your case history and exam findings, we will sit down and explain our recommended plan of action for you. After answering any questions you may have about the recommended plan, you may begin your care with Spinal Decompression.

Spinal Disc Decompression is a non-surgical and drug-free answer for disc related syndromes of the lumbar spine. Many people across America have found pain relief from degenerative joint disease, herniated discs, facet syndrome, bulging discs, pinched nerves and other back and spinal afflictions. Spinal Disc Decompression uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, a non-surgical decompressive force to your spine, increasing circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain and dysfunction.
Why Spinal Disc Decompression Works:
This FDA cleared technology relieves pain by enlarging the space between the discs. The negative pressure created by the DRX9000 releases pressure that builds on to the disc and nerves, allowing the herniated and bulging disc to eventually go back into normal position. Intervertebral disc decompression is the only treatment that is truly most effective for severe cases of herniation, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on the nerve root. According to a clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technological Review in 2004, said that 86% of all cases experienced spinal pain relief with disc decompression.

What kind of results can I expect?
Many patients with lower back syndromes may experience pain relief as early as the third treatment session. Comparison of pre-treatment MRI´s with post-treatment MRI´s has shown a 50% reduction in the size and extent of herniation. In clinical studies, 86% of patients reported relief of back pain with our spinal decompression machine. Within the past five years, some private practice clinicians have reported success rates as high as 90%.
What time commitments are required by patients?
Each treatment session averages 25 to 30 minutes in duration (research has established that optimum results are achieved with sessions that incorporate 10 to 15 decompression/relaxation cycles). On average, one daily session for 20-30 treatments is necessary for patient self-healing to occur.
Herniated discs generally respond within 20 sessions, while patients with degenerated discs may need ongoing therapy at regulated intervals to remain pain-free. Still other patients, due to lifestyle or occupation, may also require maintenance therapy. Patients suffering from posterior facet syndromes may be able to achieve complete remission with less than 10 sessions. Research on herniated disc treatment shows that most patients will achieve full remission from back pain after the initial treatment regimen is completed.
Who can benefit from using Decompressive Therapy?
The following would be inclusion criteria for the Decompression Therapy (1) Pain due to herniated and bulging lumbar discs that is more than four weeks old; (2) Recurrent pain from a failed back surgery that is more than six months old; (3) Persistent pain from degenerated discs not responding to four weeks of therapy; (4) Patients available for four weeks of treatment protocol; and (5) Patient at least 18 years of age.
These indications are ideal candidates for enrollment into our program and have the potential of achieving quality outcomes in the treatment of their back pain:
- Nerve Compression
- Lumbar Disorders
- Lumbar Strains
- Sciatic Neuralgia
- Herniated Discs
- Injury of the Lumbar Nerve Root
- Degenerative Discs
- Damaged Discs
- Spinal Arthritis
- Low Back Pain w/ or w/o Sciatica
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Myofascitis Syndrome
- Disuse Atrophy
- Lumbar Instability
- Acute Low Back Pain; and
- Post-Surgical Low Back Pain.
Lastly, the system should be utilized with patients with low back pain, with or without radiculopathy who have failed conventional therapy and who are considering surgery. Spinal surgery should only be considered after following a reasonable trial of Decompression Therapy sessions.
