TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clinical data utilizing the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ will be presented at the 2008 AAPM&R (American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation) in San Diego, California November 20-23, 2008. The first study, is an IRB-approved, prospective multi-center phase II, non-randomized pilot study authored by Dr. John Leslie of the Mayo Clinic and others. This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the DRX9000 in treating chronic LBP [lower back pain]. A greater than 50% reduction in pain score was observed after two weeks of treatment and upon completion of the entire six week protocol an amazing success rate of 88.9% was documented. Improvement of Oswestry scores and a decreased consumption of adjunctive pain medication were also noted. The second study, is retrospective data which included lumbar spine CT scans before and after patients were treated on the DRX9000 that demonstrates possible morphological changes associated with treatment. The authors conclude, “A significant reduction in chronic LBP after non-invasive spinal decompression correlated with an increase in disc height.” Authors from the studies will be presenting the data at the 2008 AAPM&R and abstracts of both studies will be available. These presentations represent an effort to further educate the International Community on the effectiveness of our products.
