I had 2 years of constant severe lower back pain that went into my right leg to my foot, with numbness. Sometimes I couldn??t even tie my own shoes. I had 2 cortisone shots but they didn??t last for even a month. My neurologist told me that I needed back surgery/fusion after physical therapy didn??t work. My pain got worse. I had 3 MRI??s of my low back and the last one showed a very large herniation in one of my discs. Another neurologist told me to try the DRX9000 treatment at Dr. Bell??s office before having surgery.
I was worried that my pain would get worse, but the DRX treatment made sense. I didn??t notice any change during the 1st 10 treatments. On the 15th visit, I didn??t need any more pain medication. Toward the end of my treatment, my leg pain went away completely and my back pain was almost entirely gone. I had to drive a long distance to get to Dr. Bell??s office, 2 ?? 3 hours each way, and I think that slowed my recovery a bit. I felt relief with the DRX treatments, but even more relief came with the extra physiotherapy provided by Dr. Bell??s staff.
Now I feel much better and stronger, especially in my legs. I feel relieved and more secure and confident knowing that my leg will not give out on me any more. I got another MRI after completing my DRX treatments and the large disc herniation is gone! I??ve told Dr. Bell??s staff to give my phone number to anyone considering this treatment at the South Coast Spine Center. I would tell them to definitely try Dr. Bell??s treatment program and to stick with it before trying surgery.
