Being an East Coast resident suffering with back pain for many years, I made an appointment in 2001 to see a well-known doctor at The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.
The doctor and I discussed my condition in detail. What I learned during that office visit was frightening. He informed me that the only way to alleviate my pain was with major surgery including:
- insertion of rods and pins
- bone grafting with the possibility of disease transmission
- risks including infection, nerve damage, anesthetic risk, vascular damage
- postoperative brace wear during a lengthy recuperation period
Not to mention the fact that I was also told there are no guarantees regarding the results of surgery and possible failure of fusion could require further surgery. I left his office hopeless and depressed. Needless to say, I never went back.
That was several years ago and I had since been living in pain and unable to live a normal life. A few weeks ago, while spending time in Alameda, I heard of the new DRX9000 machine available in Alameda at Dr. David Basco's office, the Bay Area Injury Center. I decided to give the DRX9000 a try. After only ten treatments on this remarkable machine, I am virtually pain free. Before the DRX9000 treatments I could not stand, walk, sit or lie down for an extended period of time without severe pain. Now I am able to do all this without pain. It is incredible how much my life has changed in these few week. Thank you, Dr. Basco, for making the DRX9000™ available and for helping me get a life.
