DRS System Low Back Pain Therapy – Anchorage
Sitting. Lifting. Bending. Walking.
We often take these simple movements for granted until something – like lower back pain – happens to make them painful or even impossible. Lower 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 us will experience lower back pain at some point in our lives, and 15 percent of people have lower back pain right now. The number of people with back pain – and chronic back pain – is climbing at an astounding rate every year.
Low back problems, which can result in pain and numbness in the low back, buttock, hips, legs and feet, can be caused by several factors. The most common factors contributing to low back pain include herniated or bulging discs, subluxations, degenerating discs or arthritis.
With the DRS back pain therapy at Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, say goodbye to back pain, Anchorage! The DRS system is a highly effective, non-surgical form of disc decompression therapy, which has been shown to provide back pain relief in nearly nine out of 10 patients.
The DRS system, which was approved by the FDA in the mid-1990s, uses a traction device to remove pressure from the discs and joints in the lower back. The DRS system has also been found to be an effective alternative to spinal surgery for back pain, herniated discs, degenerated discs and sciatica. This advanced back pain therapy is available at Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, an Alaska chiropractic clinic.
"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."
The DRS system provides many benefits including:
Back pain relief
Decreased leg pain or numbness
Improved daily function
Improved range of motion
Shrinkage of disc herniation
Distraction of worn-out joints or discs
Often an effective alternative to back surgery or spine surgery
What Can I Expect with DRS Back Pain Therapy – Anchorage?
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 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! After treatment, many patients report immediate back pain relief.
Our unique DRS system treatment program typically includes 20 to 25 sessions over a five- to six-week period. These sessions are typically followed by chiropractic care and rehabilitation. In most cases, back pain will be significantly – or even completely – relieved at the end of treatment.
Does Insurance Cover the DRS Back Pain Therapy – Anchorage?
Most insurance companies cover DRS system treatment, and, unlike back surgery, there is no recovery period after the therapy.
