Causes of Low Back Pain
Low back pain and lower extremity pain often get put into one category, but the causes, and therefore the treatments, can be different. Lower extremity pain, when it radiates from the low back, is usually the result of pressure on a nerve. The pain is often in the distribution which the nerve supplies. Low back pain is often related to the mechanics of the spine. Muscle strain, arthritis, trauma, osteoporosis, and fracture are often causes.

Back and Neck Treatments
Our clinic has had remarkable success with both acute and chronic back and neck pain conditions. We specialize in the treatment of disk herniation, degenerative disk disease, facet syndrome, sciatica, SI joint strain and related problems. Our multi-faceted approach includes treatment with the DRX9000, a system designed to provide static, intermittent and cycling distraction forces at specific spinal segments.

This type of decompression across the intervertebral disks and associated structures serves to take pressure off spinal nerves and open intervertebral spaces. Postural asymmetries across the pelvic girdle, hips, spine, rib cage and shoulder complex will also be assessed and treated in association with the work done on the DRX9000. This type of in-depth biomechanical assessment allows accurate diagnosis of any underlying structural issues that may be contributing to a patient’s often complicated and chronic problem. This collaboration of specialized decompression treatments with advanced biomechanical and postural correction establishes us as the premier clinic in the region for non-surgical back and neck pain.

The DRX9000 was designed by a specialized team of engineers at Axiom Worldwide to meet the needs of today’s patient, offering physicians the clinical outcome they desire and patients the quality of life they deserve. With Axiom’s focus on innovation, they are committed to utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology to improve the quality of life for those suffering from herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and other back ailments.

With a majority of the population experiencing back pain at least once in their lifetime, lower back pain is the most common ailment facing healthcare providers today. In the past physicians were faced with limited resources for successful treatment. With the age of technology and the low success rate of surgery, patients have become more educated to alternative treatment for back pain relief This changing trend is evident by the billions of dollars spent each year on alternative healthcare.
