DRS SYSTEM & LOW BACK PAIN TREATMENT

Low Back Pain Relief in Alaska

Sitting. Lifting. Bending. Walking. We often take these simple movements for granted until low back pain makes them painful – or even impossible. At Better Health Chiropractic, our experienced team of chiropractic physicians and physical therapists employ the most advanced technology, like the DRS System, to provide effective, long-lasting low back pain relief. We’ve helped thousands of Alaskans and we can help you, too! Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

What Is The DRS System?

The DRS System is a highly effective back pain treatment, approved by the FDA in the mid-1990s and introduced to Alaska by Better Health Chiropractic in 2001. The DRS System uses a traction device to target specific areas of the spine, removing pressure from the discs and joints in the lower back.

This non-surgical form of disc decompression therapy has been shown to provide back pain relief in nearly nine out of 10 patients. It can also be an effective alternative to spinal surgery.

In each 30-minute session, which is monitored by a specially trained technician, the patient lies back on the treatment bed under a relaxing, blue light. The process is so safe and painless that many patients actually fall asleep during treatment! Afterward, many patients report immediate back pain relief. Treatments also help patients to avoid chronic pain conditions.

Our unique treatment program typically includes 20 to 25 sessions over a five- to six-week period. These sessions are typically followed by chiropractic care and rehabilitative therapy. In most cases, back pain will be significantly – or even completely – relieved at the end of treatment.

Conditions Treated by the DRS System

The DRS System can be used to treat back pain caused by a wide variety of spinal conditions including herniated discs, degenerated discs, and sciatica.

Benefits Of The DRS System

The DRS System provides many benefits including:

  • Back pain relief
  • Decreased leg pain or numbness
  • Distraction of worn-out joints or discs
  • Shrinkage of disc herniation
  • Long-term results
  • Improved daily function
  • Improved range of motion

The DRS System is often an effective alternative to back or spine surgery. And unlike back surgery, there is no recovery period. Plus, most insurance companies cover the DRS System back pain therapy.
