Spinal Decompression

Shin Wellness offers the latest cutting-edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious acute and chronic neck and lower back pain/sciatica. Using the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology DRX9000 and DRX9000c for the treatment of Neck Pain, Back Pain, Sciatica, Herniated and/or Bulging Discs, and Degenerative Disc Disease, we have been able to obtain results for our patients that allow them to return to a fully functioning, healthy lifestyle.

In the past, when a patient was suffering from disc problems they would usually be given pain medications, kept from most forms of physical activity to prevent aggravation, referred for physical therapy, given dangerous injections, and when none of the above worked- were sent for surgery. In too many cases, despite the doctor’s and patients best efforts, it seemed that surgery was just the only hope to be able to stop the debilitating pain. However, resorting to surgery should always be the very last option due to the possibilities of further injury. For those who thought this was their last option, please keep reading…

Now, you don’t have to live in pain anymore. 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 the particular treatment protocol for each patient is determined by reviewing the patient’s medical history, performing a physical examination, and prescribing further diagnostic tests, such as X-Ray and MRI 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?

Review of a Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) and/or an X-ray of your spine will be necessary to assess/confirm the cause of your neck or back pain ( we have X-ray on site and an MRI will be prescribed if needed). The type of treatment prescribed for your neck or back pain will usually be dictated by the diagnosis of the underlying cause of pain. If the cause is Disc Bulge, Disc Herniation, Disc Protrusion, Disc Extrusion, Disc Degeneration, Facet Syndrome or Facet Imbrication, then the vast majority of people, can be treated non-surgically using our DRX9000 and DRX9000c protocols with fantastic results. We look forward to treating you and returning you to the health and quality of life you deserve!!!

See What Our Patients Say About Our Services

“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.”
