What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is the relief of pressure on one or many pinched nerves (neural impingement) of the spinal column.
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. The DRX9000 Spinal Decompression system not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.
Regenerative Orthopedic Clinincs offers the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic 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
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 Spinal Decompression Actually Work?
Spinal decompression has different forms. One way is to harness patients to a table, as seen the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression image to the right, on their stomachs or backs and apply static or intermittent pull to stretch the spine. Depending on the patient’s condition, the health care professional adjusts the amount of time, the degree of pull and the angle of the traction. It can also be applied with heat or ice. Inversion tables are used similarly to suspend patients from their ankles or pelvis with the trunk lower than the hips.
The center of the disc is made primarily of water and it moves as we do. As traction is applied, it decreases the pressure in the disc, theoretically moving the disc away from the nerve root. It offers no substantial change in the condition or position of the vertebrae, but the procedure can improve nutrition to the disc, and the negative pressure it creates may support healing.

Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonials
I still had pain, but not as severe as before. After I finished up the program Dr. Keith had set up for me on his DRX-9000 Spinal Decompression machine, I hardly had any pain! I can walk, bend and twist with only a tiny bit of pain on occasion.
I recommend the treatment for anyone who has back pain
Getting in or out of bed was painful, as was even just sitting in a chair. There was no position in which I was comfortable.
I consulted many different chiropractors, medical doctors and alternative medicine practitioners. Sometimes their treatments would temporarily help, but the pain would always come back, just as bad as ever. I was very close to giving up in total despair on the chance of any real recovery.
It was then that I heard a radio commercial about a non-surgical solution for back pain. But of course, I couldn’t help being skeptical when my wife and I first met Dr. Andrew Keith. Yet, he was very polite, sincere, and honest in explaining what steps must be taken . What really struck me, however, was a quality I have never seen anywhere else: his total confidence in my recovery and his compassion for my suffering. As far as the spinal decompression goes, IT WORKS! After 8 weeks of treatment, not only was the pain finally gone, but my confidence in my health was regained. I now go to 24 Fitness almost every day. I am so proud of myself and glad that I took that first step. I am so thankful for Dr. Keith & his friendly staff. Thank you so very much!
My life has come back to normal. Before the treatment I could not walk more than half a block without pain, go to the market, or shop. Now I can do all these things with no pain at all. I cannot thank you enough.
My name is Ken and I am 55 years old. Over the many years I have gone through 3 lower back surgeries which have left my spinal column looking like a war zone. Two Neurosurgeons said that it was a miracle I was walking considering the damage to my lower back. One doctor said he could possibly reduce my pain by 30%. The other doctor said he would not do anything until I was not walking at all and that I should feel lucky to be walking as good as I was. I was walking bent over and in misery.
During this time my medical doctor put me on pain pills and pain patches. I was hooked on pain medications and the problem was that the pain medication was not strong enough to control the terrible pain in my low back. To date I have gone through 20 treatments and I am now walking straight up and sitting straight without pain.
I SWEAR by this treatment (DRX-9000) and would recommend it to anyone with any type of low back pain. This has been a miracle for me and my wife as my life has been turned around and I feel like a new person again. I would like to thank Dr. Keith and his excellent staff for making me feel like a whole person again. Many Thanks!
In 2007, I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease by an orthopedic specialist after a great deal of pain from my neck all the way down my spine. He said sorry, but we can’t do anything about it and that I would end up in a wheel chair. In 2009, I found Dr. Keith. I started treatment at the beginning of February 2010 and now my back is completely healed. That’s not all; he is also treating my Epstein Barr virus that I have almost died twice from in four years.
My entire body was in pain 24/7. I had no hope left. I lived like that for 6 years, seeing medical specialists with no relief. Dr. Keith also can treat me for Epstein Barr with herbs and nutrition. I now have no pain. I have energy that I haven’t felt for so long. Now I have a brighter future ahead. I found Dr. Keith when I lost all hope and he has relieved me of all the suffering.
