Proven Pain Relief Through Decompression Therapy

Patients suffering from back and neck pain can benefit from spinal decompression. The fact is that you do not have to live in pain. We can help.

People suffering from chronic neck and back pain often experience debilitating effects. It can affect their quality of life and prevent them from performing their daily tasks. It can make life a challenge both at home and in holding a job.

The office of Kaster Chiropractic on Boy Scout Road in Fort Myers, Florida is equipped with a variety of treatment options, including Deep Decompression. For years, the Kaster Chiropractic team has been providing patients with the best possible results through decompression. Just this year we have added the state-of-the-art DRX9000 decompression machine to our facility.

We are committed to providing our patients with the best possible care. This is evidenced by the numerous studies that have been conducted on the DRX9000. Some of these include The Mayo Clinic, Duke University, and Johns Hopkins.

DrX9000 is an American company based right here in the state of Florida which makes it all the more exciting. We are excited to find and love supporting USA-made technology.

The fact is that the DRX9000 is the most advanced spinal decompression machine on the market. It provides treatment for the management of pain and disability for those suffering from back pain, neck pain, and sciatica. The proprietary motor is able to adjust itself thousands of times per second giving you the most comfortable, customized, and successful treatment available.

The DRX9000 works by utilizing a log rhythmic curve to set the pull. In studies conducted on this technology, they were able to measure the pressure drop after a cannula was inserted into a patient’s disc.

The DRX9000 features a vivid easy-to-see screen that shows the desired pull graph as well as what the motor and the machine are currently doing to match that desired outcome of ideal treatment. Very important to note, should the patient pull against the machine during treatment the machine will automatically adjust, and the shift will be seen visually. No other device on the market has this capability. There is never any undue stress on the spine.

One of the most important factors that a patient should consider when it comes to achieving non-surgical spinal decompression is that they must be fully relaxed. This will allow the machine to stretch and assist in relieving pressure on the entire body. We know that can be challenging when you are in pain. We are happy to report that because this form of treatment is so comfortable many patients actually fall asleep because their body is finally able to relax.

Spinal decompression therapy is a time-honored treatment option that involves gently elongating the spine. It can help relieve pain and promote healthy movement in the body. It can also assist in loosening the tight muscles and ligaments that have been contracted to strengthen the body.

The goal of spinal decompression is to relieve the pressure that has been exerted on the spinal discs. When the pressure gets too high, the body can become damaged or weakened between the discs, which can lead to the formation of a bulge or a hernia. Through decompression it restarts the momentum of fluids and oxygen moving through the tissue so that the body can heal itself.


A 28-YEAR-OLD BANK TELLER presented with a one-year history of lower back pain radiating down his left lower extremity, associated with numbness and tingling sensation down the left leg in the L4 and L5 dermatomal distribution. The symptoms were interfering with the patient’s work and sleep. Prior to his initial visit with Dr. Mustafa Hammad, he underwent six weeks of physical therapy and was treated with NSAIDs, opioids, and Lyrica without any relief. A pre-treatment MRI (figure 1) revealed moderate disc herniation at L4-5 level touching the L4 and L5 nerve roots on the left the patient underwent 20 treatment sessions on the DRX9000® over a six-week period. A follow-up MRI, one month after the last treatment (figure 2) reflected almost total resolution of the herniated L4-5 disc, with improvement in disc morphology, disc height, and neural canal AP diameter at the L4/5 level. Clinically the patient had total resolution of his symptoms. After a one-year follow-up with the patient, he was still symptom-free and a repeat MRI still showed no changes from the previous post-treatment MRI. Mustafa A. Hammad, MD, DO, DABIPP, FIPP, FACP, CPI, FAAN, owner of The Neuro Medical Institute, is board certified in neurology, pain medicine, and interventional pain management using the DRX900.
