Spinal Decompression Therapy
for the Delaware Area

Offered At Our Newark, Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Wilmington Locations

In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems usually was given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren’t progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option until now.

Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, the DRX 9000 was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. The DRX 9000 not only significantly reduces back pain in over 85% of patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

Proven Effective For Pain

The DRX 9000 has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery.

The DRX 9000 uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain & sciatica. Since its release in 2001, clinical studies have revealed an 86% success rate in treating lumbar disc-related problems.

First, you’ll have a consultation where our doctors will determine if you’re a candidate for treatment with the DRX 9000. After carefully studying your case history and exam findings, the doctor will sit down and explain his treatment recommendation.

After answering any questions you may have about the recommended treatment plan, you may begin your treatment with the DRX 9000. Each session consists of 30-45 minutes on the DRX 9000. Following each therapy session, a cold pack and electrical muscle stimulation is applied to help the low back muscles relax. The entire program takes approximately 6 weeks.

Our experience has shown most insurance companies are paying for treatment with the DRX 9000 the same as they would for other forms of physical therapy. However, policies vary, especially for Medicare and Medicaid, so please consider having our dedicated insurance department verify your coverage in advance so that there is no ambiguity as to the coverage you will have for services in our office.

I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation and gratitude for the level of compassion and care I have been receiving from your entire staff. Your staff is the finest group of individuals I have been associated with, ever. When I first started coming to the practice I was in pain and looking for a quick fix, which I received. However, I still had the underlying issues that caused my initial visit. It was mentioned that I may want to consider the DRX9000 treatments. To say the least, I resisted. I had been having intermittent sciatica and pain that eventually became constant.

Dr. Cohen came to me and said ‘What are we doing here? You are in pain and there is no reason you should live that way.” I started my treatments while I had constant numbness and pain in my right leg and foot. I completed my treatments 2 months later and I don’t remember the last time my foot was numb. Thank you! I will and have recommended Dr. Cohen and the entire First State Health & Wellness staff to anyone and everyone I can. They will provide the finest care no matter what level of treatment you want, whether it be a quick fix or long-term management. As Dr. Cohen says, “If the light is on, come on in.” You won’t be sorry.
