What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is the relief of pressure on one or more pinched nerves (neural impingement) of the spinal column. In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems usually was given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, or referred for physical therapy. When they weren’t progressing, they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option.


Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. The DRX9000 Spinal Decompression system not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics offer the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care has resulted in the addition of the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease

How Does Spinal Decompression Actually Work?

Patients are harnessed to a table, as seen in the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression image above, on their stomachs or backs. Static or intermittent pull is applied to stretch the spine. Depending on the patient’s condition, the health care professional adjusts the degree of pull, the angle of the traction and the amount of time the patient is treated. It can also be applied with heat or ice. Inversion tables are used similarly to suspend patients from their ankles or pelvis with the trunk lower than the hips.

The center of the disc is made primarily of water and it moves as you do. As traction is applied, it decreases the pressure in the disc, theoretically moving the disc away from the nerve root. It offers no substantial change in the condition or position of the vertebrae, but the procedure can improve nutrition to the disc, and the negative pressure it creates may support healing.

My name is Ken and I am 55 years old. Over the many years I have gone through 3 lower back surgeries which have left my spinal column looking like a war zone. Two Neurosurgeons said that it was a miracle I was walking considering the damage to my lower back. One doctor said he could possibly reduce my pain by 30%. The other doctor said he would not do anything until I was not walking at all and that I should feel lucky to be walking as good as I was. I was walking bent over and in misery.

In 2007, I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease by an orthopedic specialist after a great deal of pain from my neck all the way down my spine. He said sorry, but we can’t do anything about it and that I would end up in a wheel chair. In 2009, I found Dr. Keith. I started treatment at the beginning of February 2010 and now my back is completely healed. That’s not all; he is also treating my Epstein Barr virus that I have almost died twice from in four years.

My entire body was in pain 24/7. I had no hope left. I lived like that for 6 years, seeing medical specialists with no relief. Dr. Keith also can treat me for Epstein Barr with herbs and nutrition. I now have no pain. I have energy that I haven’t felt for so long. Now I have a brighter future ahead. I found Dr. Keith when I lost all hope and he has relieved me of all the suffering.

Thank you very much for taking away the pain on my back that I had for over two years. I had been told by other doctors that I had spinal stenosis and the only way to get rid of my problem was with surgery. The non-surgical spinal treatment that I received in your office with the DRX-9000 did the job without surgery or pain.


My life has come back to normal. Before the treatment I could not walk more than half a block without pain, go to the market or shop. Now I can do all these things with no pain at all. I cannot thank you enough.

Since a car accident in 1998 I had suffered from constant back pain. Standing or walking straight was intolerable.

Getting in or out of bed was painful, as was even just sitting in a chair. There was no position in which I was comfortable.

I consulted many different chiropractors, medical doctors and alternative medicine practitioners. Sometimes their treatments would temporarily help, but the pain would always come back, just as bad as ever. I was very close to giving up in total despair on the chance of any real recovery.

It was then that I heard a radio commercial about a non-surgical solution for back pain. But of course, I couldn’t help being skeptical when my wife and I first met Dr. Andrew Keith. Yet, he was very polite, sincere, and honest in explaining what steps must be taken . What really struck me, however, was a quality I have never seen anywhere else: his total confidence in my recovery and his compassion for my suffering. As far as the spinal decompression goes, IT WORKS! After 8 weeks of treatment, not only was the pain finally gone, but my confidence in my health was regained. I now go to 24 Fitness almost every day. I am so proud of myself and glad that I took that first step. I am so thankful for Dr. Keith & his friendly staff. Thank you so very much!

When I went to Dr. Keith, my back and leg pain was so bad that I could hardly stand and walk. After my examination, Dr. Keith told me I had 2 choices: Back Surgery or his DRX-9000 treatment. I chose Dr. Keith’s treatment. After only four sessions, I started to feel better.

I still had pain, but not as severe as before. After I finished up the program Dr. Keith had set up for me on his DRX-9000 Spinal Decompression machine, I hardly had any pain! I can walk, bend and twist with only a tiny bit of pain on occasion.

I recommend the treatment for anyone who has back pain
