False Claim

Hi I just read this complaint as it is a very high hit in Google search.The fact is that saying the DRX 9000 does not work could not be farther from the truth. I actually experienced a similar situation where I had a bulging disc. I got an MRI, saw it and almost fainted. The doctors said I would need to operate.I was looking to figure out what to do while seeing my chiropractor and Although he currently does not haveAEquipment,He directed me to another doctor who does.Let me be very clear:This piece of equipment Not only Kept me from surgery but completely changed my life. In less than 6 months I was out of pain and continued improving by finally taking exercise and core strength exercises seriously. I never ran for 5 miles in my life. I did so after not being able to move and using the DRX 9000 for less than half a year.

You could easily argue it's overpriced. Medicine of any kind is overpriced in the US. However, if you think for any reason this is a hoax, I feel very strongly that if bulging disks are your issue, this will fix it.

My Dr was Tomas Santucci in the San Jose/ Los Gatos area. Avoiding surgery on this type oåf problem is key. The second surgeon I consulted told me I no longer needed surgery, and that if for any reason you can, avoid surgery. He is an excellent surgeon with top ratings, but as everyone knows preventive medicine is much better.
My name is Greg Christopher and you can find me on facebook if you're having similar issues and want to hear how this really worked. No hoax whatsoever. There are many ways of course to fix bulging discs (just google Jeff Cavaliere bulging disc for one of many) but I did try a few and honestly, the DRX is amazing.

False Claim

DRX9000 is another trip/trap designed to TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE IN DESPERATE PAIN.

Read this and then run, don't walk, the other way:

For those who don't know, the DRX 9000 is a fancy traction table billed by those who treat back pain (mainly chiropractors and in my area a group of DO's) as a spinal "decompression" unit. I initially became suspicious and concerned about the device when I had several back pain patients that were previously treated at the DO's facility. The ALL said that their treatment consisted of daily treatments for 6 weeks of spinal decompression in the DRX 9000, water massage (like you see in malls) and blowing up a balloon. The latter is a whole other subject to post about. The point here is the DAILY treatment for 6 weeks. Regardless if they had simple mechanical LBP, HNP, stenosis, etc, everyone seems to have received the same treatment. The worst part is, in many cases, their insurance companies did not pay for this plan of care.

Now the Tampa Tribune reports the manufacturer, Axiom Worldwide, was raided by FBI agents this morning. Why? The story doesn't say, but Dean Moyer over at Rebuild Your Back states this:


Rumor has it that the allegations leveled against Axiom are:

* Axiom instructs DRX 9000 clinic owners how to defraud insurance companies in the training manuals that come with the machine.

* Axiom provides false advertising materials … in the form of slick infomercials and print advertising … as part of the DRX-9000 package.

* Claims of FDA approval are distorted and misrepresented as a selling point in the commercials. The truth is, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has never evaluated the machine for safety or effectiveness. As it turns out, the DRX was grandfathered in because it is similar to other traction tables and, therefore, considered an existing medical device.

* The claim by Axiom that their machine is based on NASA research is a total fabrication. NASA has never played a part in the development of the DRX or any other spinal decompression machine.

What can you do? Educate, educate, educate. Don't be afraid to tell people the truth. There is NO literature that shows the DRX 9000 to be more beneficial than standard traction and not much literature that shows traction, in general is helpful. Hopefully the Feds can help put a stop to people using "Dr." to dupe the layperson in to forking over money for treatment that is excessive in number and in no way has been shown to be better than less expensive treatment.

False Claim

After about 20 yrs of back pain, my fit, strong, active husband, Rob did something major to his back. MRI showed 2 badly herniated discs. He needed surgery but he simply refused to allow anyone cut into his spine. One day Rob’s pain went from bad to debilitating. When I tell you he couldn't move, it is no exaggeration. He couldn’t sit at all. Even a reclining position was unbearable. This meant basically lying on the floor or bed. Even attempting to walk was agonizing. No one could talk him into the surgery-it scared him to death. We have 3 sons and he wanted to be able to be an active part of their lives. He owns a construction company, loves to deep sea fish. Forget it, he couldn’t even join us to the dinner table. This went on for about 5 weeks. I was at my wits end, my poor husband was growing increasingly depressed and he was getting no better with time. About 2:00a.m. one night, in an attempt to learn more about what options he might have other than surgery, I found the info. And web site of Dr. Paul Turner. Westborough is about an hour drive for us, how would I even get him in the car and all the way to Westborough? I watched all the internet news clips and You Tube videos and then brought our lap top to my husband in bed and made him watch. He agreed to try the DRX machine. That morning I called Dr. Turner. He was able to see us right away and that day Rob was on the machine. Dr. Turner explained what he would be able to do with the use of the DRX-we had to try it. We didn’t know what to expect. If this hurt Rob more I could never forgive myself. We took a leap of faith and Rob agreed to try the DRX. That was the first time I had seen my husband in weeks smile. The decompression took the pressure off his discs and he was able to finally breathe. We went every day for about 3 weeks. Dr. Turner was like an angel from heaven. He came in on his week end to treat Rob. It wasn’t over night. The first week we saw very little improvement, but there was improvement. By the end of the 2nd week, he was making big progress and at about 20 sessions, he was 80% pain free. But that wasn’t good enough for either Rob or Dr. Turner. So Rob continued a little bit more (less frequently) until he was nearly perfect. As you can imagine, it was a rebirth for our whole family. And Rob could put his own socks on!!! Let me also tell you, Dr. Turner is not a sales man. He is not a pushy, know-it-all Chiropractor. He is a kind compassionate knowledgeable man who doesn’t bully people. He works entirely on his own and runs his business himself, and he does a perfect job at it. He wants to heal his patients. It has been 2 ½ years since Rob started with Dr. Turner. He goes once a month to keep himself in line and say hello to the man who quite honestly saved his life
