DRS System: Effective Back Pain Relief

Back Pain Therapy – Anchorage & Juneau

pain-free Anchorage, Alaska - Low back pain treatment
Sitting. Lifting. Bending. Walking. We often take these simple movements for granted until something – like low back pain – happens to make them painful or even impossible.

Low back pain is the second-most common reason people visit their doctor – and the second-most common reason people miss work. In fact, it is estimated that:
  • 85 percent of people will experience low back pain at some point in our lives.
  • 15 percent of people have low back pain right now.
  • And the number of people with back pain – including chronic back pain – is climbing at an astounding rate every year.
Low back problems can be caused by several factors, most commonly: These conditions can result in pain and numbness in the low back, buttock, hips, legs and feet.

DRS System: Effective Relief from Low Back Pain

The DRS System is a highly effective back pain therapy available at Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Rehab, the premier Alaska chiropractic clinic. This non-surgical form of disc decompression therapy has been shown to provide back pain relief in nearly nine out of 10 patients. It has also been found to be an effective alternative to spinal surgery for back pain, herniated discs, degenerated discs and sciatica.

DRS Low Back Pain Treatment for patients in Anchorage and Juneau, AKThe DRS System uses a traction device to remove pressure from the discs and joints in the lower back. This advanced back pain therapy was approved by the FDA in the mid-1990s and introduced to Alaska by Better Health in 2001.

"I had a laminectomy, (a major back surgery), 20 years ago, and it gave me some relief. But since that time, the pain has been gradually increasing. I have had especially intense low back pain for the last year. It was hard for me to get out of bed in the morning and do certain types of housework. As I was doing the DRS treatment, I was able to get out of bed easier and had noticed that I was having less pain during the day. Today I am totally pain-free."

What Can I Expect?

In each 30-minute DRS System session, the patient lies back on the treatment bed under a relaxing, blue light. The decompression treatment, which is monitored by a specially trained technician, uses a traction device to target specific areas of the spine. The process is so safe, painless and relaxing that many patients actually fall asleep during treatment!
