Akron, OH Physical Therapy Specialists


Professional Therapy Associates carriers an industry leading treatment machine for non-surgical spinal decompression with the use of the DRX-9000. Ron Kleinman, owner and physical therapist, treats his patients with this machine for bulging, ruptured or herniated discs which can be a the source of radiating neurological pain as well as intensive back pain. Read further below to seek more information about the DRX-9000 and if you are experiencing back pain and would like to schedule a consultation to determine if you’re a candidate for treatment on the DRX-9000, please feel free to call our Akron, OH office during business hours at 330-665-0006 to speak with a staff member.

The DRX-9000, also known as a non-surgical spinal decompression table, is a great option to help reduce radiating pain as well as most forms of lower back pain. Treatments for lower back pain and radiating neurological pain should be congruent for the condition and the physical therapists at Professional Therapy Associates will help decide what treatment options for duration and sessions are best. It is important to note that not all cases of low back pain can be alleviated with the DRX-9000 spinal decompression machine, but compressive arthritic conditions, degenerative discs, facet arthrosis and other low back pain causes could possibly all be helped by DRX-9000 therapy.

The DRX-9000 allows therapists to take advantage of traction to alleviate pinched nerves or intervertebral discs in their patients using decompression. As an outcome, patients enjoy their experience with the DRX-9000 because of the following reasons:

Relieves Low Back Pain
Reduces Radiating Nerve Pain
Expands Intervertebral Space Reducing Disc Protrusion
Decompresses the Spine and IVD (intervertebral discs)
Maximizes the Therapeutic Approach to Treat Low Back Pain

Chronic low-back pain, also referred to as Low Back Pain, is a widespread and debilitating syndrome, which effects approximately 25% of adults in the U.S. who report having experienced low back pain in the past three months.
Low back pain is the second most common reason for a visit to a physician, the fifth most common cause of admission to a hospital, the third most common indication for surgery

Among the top 10 reasons for visits to internists and the most common and most expensive reason for work disability

While there are three broad treatment options for treating LBP – surgical, non-surgical and pharmacological – there is little consensus on which approach is appropriate or preferable for various scenarios.

Pain relief from use of the DRX-9000 has proven effective in up to 86% in a study where low back pain was measured in patients quantified their satisfaction after receiving a series of twenty (20)DRX-9000 treatments.

In another study, ninety-four (94) patients provided preliminary data that chronic low back back may improve with the treatment on the DRX-9000 spinal decompression machine.
