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 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! Afterwards, many patients report immediate back pain relief.
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.
