I am a 51 year old female, generally healthy and fit. One morning three years ago, I became an invalid. I was unable to sit, use the bathroom, walk, or perform any basic movements involving my lower back and the left hip and leg. Pharmaceuticals dulled the pain somewhat, but ruined my digestive system. It was a very lonely time.
I was not bruised, not bleeding, not swollen, but unable to function with a constant debilitating and agonizing pain. An MRI revealed two herniated discs.
A series of three epidurals helped for a year, but a ride on a bike brought the fury of the pain back in a day. Anti-inflammatory medication and aqua-therapy helped this time, but this episode made me aware of my physical limitations. No golfing, no biking, no jogging, no lifting of a baby granddaughter…I accepted it knowing that I was running out of options. The only one left was surgery, which I wanted to avoid.
I found out about the DRX 9000 from a friend who just completed his decompression treatment and was enjoying life without pain for the first time in years. I was at Montvale Health as soon as they could have me. I followed all the instructions given by the doctors to the letter, and started feeling a change in the fifth week of treatment.
Now, four months since completing the treatment and physiotherapy, I feel alive! I golf, still badly, I rejoined the gym and started jogging again, I practice yoga and Pilates twice a week and just came back from a hiking trip to Wyoming. I am living my life again!
