I have been playing golf three times a week for over forty years, practicing almost every day. It got to the point where I couldn't swing a club without pain. Thanks to the DRX 9000 treatments and Dr. Mountain's knowledge, I am back to my old routine, pain free. Thanks Dr. Mountain and Staff.

When I came to see Dr. Mountain I couldn't even walk.I had a really hard time getting to work every day. I work in construction! My back and legs were very weak and I would fall. Falling is very disturbing and scary. Then Dr. Mountain recommended the DRX 9000 and just after several treatments I started getting strength in my legs. If it wasn't for DRX treatments, I would not have a job. Thank you Dr. Mountain.

I had been suffering from lower back pain, and severe pain in my right leg, particularly my right calf. The original injury occurred approximately 16 months ago. After initial treatment with physical therapy had provided limited to no relief, an MRI proved that I had two herniated disks. More physical therapy proved ineffective and my option was taking pain medication to even function in my daily routine. Sleeping was extremely difficult. Needless to say, my level of frustration was pretty high.

I first heard of spinal decompression from research my wife did on the Internet. After an initial consultation with Dr. Kelvin Mountain, I decided to try this therapy. Initially there was some concern due to my weight, as I weigh over 300lbs, but this proved to not be an issue. I started treatments in early August of this year. Over the next six – eight weeks the improvement in the level of pain I was experiencing was very positive. The combination of the decompression therapy and traditional chiropractic care seemed to be very effective. By week two, I stopped taking the pain medication. I was not yet pain free, but did not need to continue taking the prescription. I was sleeping much better, and for the first time in over a year was able to actually sleep through most of the night. By the end of the sixth week I was not having any of the leg pain symptoms. I am following up with a few more treatments, and looking forward to getting back to doing some of the things I haven’t been able to do for a long time.

The treatments are surprisingly painless. Other than the initial stretching feel as the decompression therapy starts, it’s actually hard to tell when the compression and decompression cycles start. My results have been impressive, and I have recommended that friends who have disk problems look into this series of treatments with Dr Mountain, or in their own area if outside San Diego. I would definitely consider this before I’d ever consider surgery.

I have a herniated disk in my lower back. My symptoms were steady pain in my right buttocks and burning below my right elbow. I had had this pain for about a year, but the severity of the pain and the burning sensation in my arm had to be getting worse since Nov. 04. My doctor prescribed ibuprofen and I was taking 800mg up to three times a day, even though I was scared of taking so much because my pharmacist said that it could cause internal bleeding. My pain affected my every day life in such a way that I could not lift anything and I was walking very slowly.

I have had other treatments, including acupuncture and a lot of physical therapy. I even wore a brace for my elbow for about 5 months. I had tried Chiropractic care many years ago and I came to Dr. Kelvin Mountain’s office with an open mind and was willing to try anything. He recommended the DRX 9000 and within 1-2 treatments, I had relief of pain in my lower back. After being adjusted on my right shoulder, the burning sensation went away. I would recommend the DRX 9000 to anyone who has lower back pain."
