Do you suffer with low back pain, neck pain, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis?  Have you been told you need back surgery or pain management?  Spinal Decompression Therapy is an effective treatment for these conditions.  It is very affordable and less expensive than surgery.

What is the DRS Protocol™?

The DRS Protocol™ is a comprehensive combination of treatments, which include axial/spinal decompression, and multiple therapies and utilizes “Patient Centered Healthcare” and “best practice” approach. This protocol is offered exclusively at the McPhail Chiropractic Pain Relief Center. The DRS Protocol™ has been proven most effective for involved and chronic disc conditions.

DRS Protocol™ is an effective treatment for:

  • Low back pain / Neck pain
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated lumbar disc(s)
  • Herniated cervical disc(s)
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica pain
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Cervical spinal stenosis
  • Failed neck and/or back surgery syndrome

Dr. McPhail states, “I know what we do for care is the solution for the fight against low back and neck pain because we have seen the life changing outcomes for our patients through treatment with our unique customized DRS Protocol™.”

How Does DRS™ Work?

DRS™ stands for Decompression, Reduction and Stabilization. The DRS™ treatment applies an “axial” or distractive force to the injured disc levels. During treatment, intra-discal pressure is dropped from a positive to a negative. This negative pressure promotes the diffusion, or intake, of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the vertebral disc area, thereby rehydrating the degenerated disc.
Repeated pressure differential promotes retraction of a herniated nucleus pulposus (the elastic core of the intervertebral disc). In other words, the DRS™ treatment reduces pressure inside of the disc. This reduces the painful herniation and the pain from other disc-related degenerative conditions. The pressure reduction results in increased blood flow to the injured area, reduction of pain, increased mobility, and tissue repair.
In research studies, the conclusions were that for patients with appropriate back pain conditions, DRS™ is a “front-line, premier treatment.”
