Spinal Decompression

Shin Wellness offers the latest cutting-edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic neck and lower back pain/sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of Neck Pain, Back Pain, Sciatica, Herniated and/or Bulging Discs, Degenerative Disc Disease.

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 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, Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat Neck Pain, Lower Back Pain, and Sciatica resulting from Herniated or Degenerated Discs. Spinal Decompression not only significantly reduces or eliminates neck and back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to their previous lives. Diagnosing the cause of the neck or back pain and choosing a treatment method is determined by reviewing the patient’s medical history, performing a physical examination, and prescribing further diagnostic tests when necessary.


About Spinal Decompression

  • What is the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™?
    The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine. Through the application of spinal decompressive forces to these injuries, the DRX9000™ has given patients relief from back pain and has allowed them to resume the activities they love.

  • What can I expect during treatment?
    During each 30-minute treatment session, the patient relaxes comfortably on a heavily-padded bed. After being secured into position by an upper and lower body harness, the patient can completely relax by watching a DVD, listening to music, or simply taking a nap. Typically, each 30-minute session is divided into 18-phases where spinal decompressive forces alternate between a maximum and minimum therapeutic level. The cycling of forces in this manner appears to create a pumping action that simulates the natural processes responsible for nourishing the intervertebral disc.

  • What is Spinal Decompression and how does the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ work?
    Spinal Decompression on the DRX9000™ involves the application of forces logarithmically to elongate the spine without causing the muscles that guard the spine to contract. The technology required to apply spinal decompressive forces is very advanced. The treatment computers constantly calculate corrections and ensure the therapy is true to each patient’s logarithmic curve.

  • Who are the best candidates for treatment?
    Patients that will benefit most from the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ may be those diagnosed with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease or facet syndrome.

  • What can I expect during the course of treatment?
    Some patients may experience light side effects with this type of therapy. Mild muscular soreness during treatment may occur. The sensation would be similar to what a person might experience at the onset of a new exercise regimen. Most patients find this therapy quite comfortable and relaxing. During an average 30-minute session, most patients experience a gentle stretch in the cervical or lumbar spine and tend to fall asleep.

Did You Know?

Some traditional approaches tend to focus on the symptoms without ever addressing the underlying source of the pain. Long-term relief can only be achieved when the source of the pain is corrected. Review of a Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) and/or an X-ray of your spine will be necessary to assess the cause of your neck or back pain ( we have X-ray on site and an MRI will be prescribed if needed). It is difficult to create an effective treatment regimen without first identifying the underlying cause of the pain. The type of treatment prescribed for neck or back pain will usually be dictated by the diagnosis of the underlying cause of pain. For the vast majority of people, they can be treated non-surgically.

“This is my second time coming for acupuncture and it was the best. Where massages do well for most, acupuncture works better for me for the long run. Anytime I need a fix, I always come here. They’re all very professional, courteous and make me feel very comfortable. Each time I’ve had Chad for my acupuncturist and he does a phenomenal job!! Totally worth every penny.”


“Once again Shin saved me. I hurt myself doing my crazy workouts in Crossfit and weight training. Somehow they fixed me in one visit so I’m back in the gym. LOVE THEM ALL!!!”

Tico C

“I’m very impressed with the DRX I have had problems for about ten yrs after an auto accident head on. The past year and a half the pain has gotten much worse into my hip and down my left leg. I felt a great relief as early as my first couple of visits. At the end of my treatment I felt like I was never involved in the accident there was no pain at all. I felt 10yrs younger. I can’t say enough about the DRX it is unbelievable. Thank you Dr Gallego.”
