DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Review

DRX9000 Lumbar Disc Treatment Provides 76% Satisfaction Rate In Japanese Study

Here’s a quick recap of this DRX9000 spinal decompression review…

In a study of 50 patients, Dr. Noriaki Yamamoto and others reported that 76% of patients were satisfied because of the treatment that they received by means of the DRX9000.

A study titled, “The treatment of lumbar disc disease using DRX9000” is published and documented in the December issue of the Nigata University Journal of Health and Welfare. Following the treatment of fifty patients with the DRX- 9000, Dr. Noriaki Yamamoto and others reported that 76% of patients felt satisfied with treatment.


Why is this DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Review important?  I think patient satisfaction is pretty important. Especially if a patient is given high hopes that an invasive procedure such as certain types of back surgery is the answer. In defense of the surgeons, sometimes there is no one answer with back pain- it can be complicated.

DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Review of Research

According to Calodney, (1) the diagnosis and treatment of persistent pain in the low back patient who has been previously operated on is an increasingly common and complex problem. Each year approximately 916,000 spinal surgeries are performed in the United States.(2)

Not all are successful, in fact there’s an official diagnosis for when back surgeries go bad- “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome.”

I’m not really hip with the term failed back surgery ‘syndrome. It’s not a disease that the patient has acquired, it’s more of a misnomer used to describe the outcome of patients who continue to experience back pain after back surgery or have complications from the back surgery procedure itself.

Of note, there is no equivalent term similar a post-surgical syndrome for any other type of surgery (e.g. there is no “failed heart surgery syndrome”). It’s sort of like, “Sorry, it didn’t work. Here’s your new label- Failed Back Surgery. And as a bonus it comes with a whole new set of problems.”

DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Review- Alternative Treatment

When conventional treatments for low back pain such as chiropractic, massage, acupuncture and physical therapy fail to provide relief to the chronic low back patient, spinal decompression therapy as a non-surgical treatment for disc related low back pain, disc related arm and hand pain, leg pain or sciatica can be an effective alternative to surgery.

Many patients choose it simply as a ‘last resort’ therapy since one of the most appealing aspects of the DRX9000 therapy is it’s relatively high success rate coupled with the low risk factor. Even in the cases when it’s not successful, the patient doesn’t have to deal with the repercussions of the invasive nature of surgery.

    This treatment for spinal decompression has been a lifesaver for me, I have been able to actually become more active since we started it and it really doesn’t hurt to have it done, I usually bring a book and just read through the treatments.

      Thanks for commenting John,
      With lumbar spinal decompression we sometimes have patients watch videos – not possible with the DRX9000c cervical decompression though. Glad the decompression therapy worked for you.

    Most often spinal decompression therapy is actually comfortable. The distractive forces take away pressure so it can feel really good on the lower back or the neck, which ever area you have symptoms in. Sometimes people with chronic sciatica will notice a complete relief of symptoms while on the machine and believe it or not some fall asleep on the table. occasionally you can be sore after a spinal decompression treatment, sort of like you worked out to hard but it it usually self-limiting and is a necessity to get to the next level of addressing the problem.
