Drx9000 cervical

In 2010 I found out that I had two herniated discs in my neck. I went for cortisone shots twice and they helped a little but I still had a numbness in my left hand in the thumb and some pain in my left elbow. xxxxx they had the DRX 9000 cervical with the cold laser. I went for 20 visits. It was my last hope before I would have even considered surgery.

It was not cheap. About $2000 I was on the machine for approx 20 min each visit then stretching then elec stim for 10 min or so. After about the 6th visit I started to feel much better. And it only got better from there. I try to go back for every now and then just for regular maintenance. The machine can work and I found out it does although it might not be for everyone

    those DRX9000 machines and you will discover they are really just glorified traction units.
    Several years ago there was a medical journal that compared the DRX9000 with standard traction units used at most rehab centers. The conclusion was there really wasnt any difference, except for the patient cost$$

    I will see if I can find that article
