Are you having trouble standing up straight and holding your head up high? If so, you may want to consider the DRS Protocol™ to help you correct the cause of your pain and discomfort.  You may be able to avoid surgery. The DRS Protocol™ is a non-invasive treatment to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries. It provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a computer-controlled decompression table that applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc) in minute increments. Over time, these small increments add up and allow the disc a chance to reshape itself, heal and receive the proper flow of nutrients to fight off brittleness and future injuries.

About 8 out of 10 Americans will experience debilitating back pain at some time in their lives. Most doctors agree that the most common culprit is the inter-vertebral discs, whether herniated, or whether just worn out, arthritic and painful. Amazingly, 90 percent of disc injuries will heal themselves after a few weeks. However, most patients want a quick fix. Waiting can be torture, and not everybody gets better. So that's when many doctors will recommend back surgery. More than 1.2 million Americans undergo spinal surgery each year, a large number of them spinal fusions where vertebrae are joined surgically with metal rods and screws, permanently, so they can’t move.

However, the DRS Protocol™, spinal decompression therapy approved by the FDA as a back surgery alternative treatment, works with the body to restore proper function and health. By restoring correct alignment to the structure of the spine, nerve involvement is reduced or eliminated, reducing your pain and allowing the body to heal naturally.
