Patient Results and Testimonials
I was in excruciating pain for two years. I went to a “Pain Management Doctor” who wanted to give me steroid shots. The idea of shots into my spine made me very nervous. I ended up having three steroid shots in my back which didn’t help. Then I saw an ad in the newspaper for spinal decompression …. After my complimentary consultation the doctor recommended spinal decompression on the DRX9000. I got relief after one week of treatment. It gets better every time. I am now able to do the things that I have missed over the last 2 years. It works, it helped me.

… I was at the end of my rope. I have had physical therapy, epidurals and cortisone shots for neck and shoulder pain in the past, but the pain always came back, along with daily headaches.X-rays showed that I had Degenerative Disc Disorder, bulging discs and stenosis in my neck.Not wanting surgery, I explored other options …. After just a few Spinal Decompression treatments, I felt much better. After 17 sessions, I feel like a new person!

I came … for my back pain and it sure has helped. This has been one of the best experiences I have had. Again, thanks for everything.

I was diagnosed with a pinched nerve in my back, which was causing severe pain in my buttock and leg. I love to bowl but my bowling score has been very poor since my back started hurting. I was given a number of cortisone shots but I was still having pain. When I heard about spinal decompression, I felt it might help me. After seeing the table I was a little worried what the treatments might be like. Would they help? Would the treatments be painful? The treatments were actually very relaxing. One time I even fell asleep. After my third treatment of Spinal Decompression, I went bowling and bowled 30 points above my average which greatly impressed my Team. I definitely feel that Decompression Treatments are improving my body’s mobility and strength, as well as relieving the pain that I have been experiencing for over a year!

After experiencing excruciating pain from a work-related injury, I knew I needed an immediate solution. I found it hard to walk, stand, sit or even lie down. I even had to take an absence of leave from my job at the restaurant due to my pain. My pain level was a 10, on a scale of 1-10. After learning that I had a herniated disc at L4-L5, along with spinal stenosis, I was scared that I would be facing surgery. I had tried everything. Then I was referred … by my chiropractor. After 4 weeks, my pain was completely gone! Thank you for allowing me to get my life back. I am excited to be able to return to work after not having been able to work the past 6 months because of the pain.

I came … with severe back pain and sciatica. The pain in my low back was excruciating. My pain level was a “12”, on a scale of 1 to 10. I had pain radiating down my right leg for the last 2 months. I tried acupuncture, pain meds and back surgery. I was taking 6 Tylenol a day. My concern when I came … was, will this work for me? I’ll admit I was apprehensive because of a bad experience in the past. But after starting Spinal Decompression treatments, I knew I had made the right decision in coming here. My pain level has gone from “12” to “0”! I am able to walk straighter, sleep better and do housework without pain. Dr. Self and the entire staff are wonderful, caring people. It is so comforting to be able to be pain-free without the use of medication.

As an owner of a housekeeping business, I came … due to constant pain in my low back, with pain radiating down to my legs. My pain was a “10” on a scale of 1 to 10. I have been suffering with this pain, on and off, since January of 2011. I have tried Pain Meds, taking 1-2 every 6 hours. I wondered if I would ever be pain-free. … I was very pleased with how quick I was able to start treatment. Feeling results within a few days was amazing. I can enjoy my days being pain-free. I’m able to work, still!! My kids really appreciate me being able to play with them and not be restricted or limited to activities. I would highly recommend … non-surgical, medication-free, painless treatment that has great results. Within a matter of a few days I was able to stop my pain medication and since then not have to take one! Treatment is painless and actually relaxing. I really enjoyed it. Most of all no recovery needed.

“After 2 failed back surgeries in 2000, I still had severe pain and I was informed no further surgeries would help. I had extreme pain while standing and walking. The pain was constant and was an 8-10 on a scale of 1 to 10. An Orthopedic test indicated that there was nothing more that could be done. Other than back surgery, I tried epidurals, steroid shots and pain meds. My experience … was outstanding. Everyone was friendly and very efficient. The Consultation was very informative. Dr. Self explained the procedure and felt he could reduce my pain level from “8” to “3”. The goal has been met. Hooray! It has been an amazing experience. I can walk better, am reduced to a level “3” pain while standing, have less stress and have a better outlook on life. We were informed it would be about 6 weeks and that has been the time to be in an almost pain-free status. I only wish I had known about Spinal Decompression before going under the knife because I really feel that I wouldn’t have needed the surgeries that didn’t even help.”

Additional note from Clifford’s wife.. The concern and care for the spouse was appreciated very much. It was well worth the time and expense.

I came … because of low back pain in my lower back that began 5 years ago from work as a heavy equipment mechanic for 38 years. This pain was accompanied by pain and numbness traveling down both of my legs. On a scale of 0–10 my pain was about a 7–8. I had tried epidurals/steroid shots, exercise, physical therapy, and pain medication with only mild temporary relief. I was not a candidate to undergo back surgery due to heart complications, so it was the last route I could take. Prior to starting my treatment, I was taking 30mg of Codeine and two 300mg tablets of Acetaminophen three times a day, and a few additional doses if the pain persisted. … I questioned whether or not their offered treatment methods would work for me. I decided to invest in the treatment, and in turn had a great experience …. As a result of my treatment I am now able to enjoy sports such as bowling, physical exercise such as walking, and most of all have more sex. … I was a very bad case and I am completely satisfied with my treatment … and am glad I did not have back surgery!

… I had shooting pain and stiffness in my left leg. My pain was an 8 on a scale from 0 to 10. The pain radiated down my leg. I had suffered with this pain for three years. Five years ago I noticed a lower back ache and it just kept getting worse. Before coming in … I tried steroid shots, massage, exercise, traditional chiropractic, pain medications, and the inversion table. I was also taking medication just about every other day. I heard … from an advertisement. I felt that 58 was just too young to hurt this much daily. Before I came in I wondered if Spinal Decompression would really work for me. My experience … was a courteous, fun and informative staff. I felt like everyone was trying to help me find what works. My pain levels are significantly decreased. As a result of the treatment … I am able to sleep all night!

Lower back, shoulder and arm pain … felt like electrical pain radiating down my arms. My pain was at a “10” and I also had lots of numbness. I have had this pain for 20 years and only took pain meds for it, which made me sick. … I wondered, will this work? Will they be able to lessen my pain? I’m amazed at how hard Dr. Self has worked on me and didn’t release me from care until he was satisfied with my results. I am now able to sleep at night. I can carry my purse on my shoulders without pain. My anxiety is gone. … What’s so great is that there is no surgery involved and at my age of 67, surgery is the last thing I wanted to do. I had amazing results. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate my pain a “1”. The treatment was painless and most important, it helped me! No cutting, no recovery; it works.

At this point the doctor may recommend x-rays or an MRI if he feels like further imaging will be necessary to determine the exact cause.

If you do qualify for care, your Doctor will explain their recommended plan of action for you.
