  • Herniated or Bulging Discs 
  • Degenerative Discs   
  • Back/Neck Pain

Do you suffer from any of the above spinal problems? Are you looking to avoid surgery? If so please read about our DRX9000® therapy program.

DRX9000® therapy is FDA cleared and has been shown to be effective in treating herniated and bulging discs, sciatica, neck/back pain, and spinal stenosis. Click here (article one) to see the research on the effectiveness of Decompression Therapy.*

When the discs in your spine are damaged they often pinch the nerves. This can cause pain, tingling, numbness, weakness or other symptoms.

These damaged spinal discs seldom heal because they remain under constant pressure from gravity, even while a person is at rest. DRX9000® Decompression is designed to reduce pressure inside the discs by gently separating or distracting the injured spinal segments.

Under distraction, pressure on the disc is relieved; thus allowing fluids, nutrients and oxygen to flow back into disc. This nutrient exchange helps the body’s natural rebuilding process and can accelerate the repair and eventually heal damaged spinal discs.

In addition to allowing nutrition back to the injured discs it helps pull back any portion of the disc that is pinching the nerve. This helps to reduce your pain and symptoms. DRX9000® decompression therapy typically takes 15 minutes to perform and patients often find pain relief within a few sessions.

For those who are candidates and follow Dr. Stanely's treatment guidelines find our treatment program to be very effective*. DRX9000® therapy is affordable, painless, and does not involve any drugs or surgery. We also have included non-surgical laser therapy to improve tissue healing.

 Video of Dr. Stanley Explaining DRX therapy

*Five years ago I had an accident at work. I suffered a herniated disc in my lower back. 

My Doctor recommended I see an orthopedic surgeon for my back which I did.  I opted not to have back surgery.The sciatic pain in my left leg was so intense that nothing (and I do mean nothing) would cause it to subside.  

In fact during my consultation with Dr. Stanley the pain was so intense I couldn't even sit down.

When Dr. Stanley informed me I was a good candidate for non-surgical spinal decompression I couldn't wait to get started. To this point it was the best decision i have ever made.

It has now been 5 years since I underwent treatment and I am back doing ALL the things I truly enjoy.

If not for Dr. Stanley and the DRX9000 I wouldn't be able to pick up my grand daughter, go bowling, or excercise.

I recommend this procedure and this office to anyone who is suffering from the same or similar condition as I was.It's been 5 years for me and I can honestly say it has completely changed my life!

*Thanks to Dr. Shane Stanley and the DRX 9000, I am able
to ski again.
I was experiencing excruciating pain and stiffness in my cervical spineand an MRI of my cervical spine revealed bulging discs at C-5 andC-6.   Spinal surgery was not an option for me as I lead a very 
active life and I also did not want to subject my body to the trauma
of surgery. 
Working in the medical field I first became familiar with the DRX 9000 duringa physician convention.  I was also encouraged by the positive results myson-in-law experienced.  

He had a ruptured Lumbar Disc and because of of his age, his physician recommended that he try spinal decompression treatments before he would consider operating on him. The spinal decompression treatments worked for him and he was back to work after a few months.
I underwent the DRX 9000 treatment regime under Dr. Stanley’s supervisionalong with chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy at Dr. Stanley’s Novi Spinal Care Institute and I am feeling great and able to function fully again. It did take me approximately nine months of maintenance treatments after the initial DRX 9000 treatment regime to feel great again but it was well worth it.
Thank you Dr. Stanley and Staff.

*Patient Testimonials

*Prior to starting DRX 9000 treatments with Dr. Stanley, I had a constant backache and numbness to my hands and legs that prevented me from getting a good night sleep.  

I had gone to another Doctor who also provided DRX 9000 treatments but was shocked at the price I was quoted for the treatments.  I found Dr. Stanley’s ad in the Detroit Free Press and called for a consultation. 

 I was impressed with the thoroughness of Dr. Stanley’s exam and was very happy with his prices.  I have saved thousands of dollars by going to Dr. Stanley for the DRX 9000 treatments.

As for the results of Dr. Stanley’s treatments, the numbness in my hands has gone away and I am now getting a good night’s sleep.
I strongly recommend that if you have severe back pain, numbness of the hands and/or legs, that you give Dr. Stanley a call.

  DRX could be the relief you are looking for and Dr. Stanley could save you thousands of dollars.

*Eleven years ago I had a back injury which left me in excruciating pain.  I had months of physical therapy, which was very helpful, however, I had a relapse.  

The pain was so severe that I opted for surgery.  The surgery was successful, however, last summer I had another reoccurrence with my back.  

Back again was that all too familiar pain and not wanting to undergo another surgery, I sought after a non-invasive treatment.  I found Dr. Stanley via the internet and began treatments on the DRX9000 5 weeks ago.  

Both the DRX9000 and Dr. Stanley are helping me return to my active lifestyle.

*After two years of pain in my leg, I had an MRI done. 

 The MRI showed a disc bulge. I conferred with Dr. Stanley and he suggested the DRX-9000.  

Oh my goodness…my life has changed.  After one session my leg pain decreased about 70%.  

After my second session I was pain free for over two weeks.  I am thrilled and excited to continue my sessions and be pain free forever.  This has been truly amazing!

*My story begins as a 24-year old woman having my first child.  The pressure that a woman has carrying a child is indescribable. 

 All that weight can do a lot of damage.  After 13 ½ years and three kids, my body, discs and sciatic nerve were shot!  

I had an MRI and discovered that I had a herniated disc.  The pain came and went for years but this time it lasted for seven months. Seven months of pure agony!  

Going to Dr. Stanley’s office has helped me incredibly.  The staff is wonder and they make you feel so welcome.  I have done my research on the cost of the treatment an literally have saved thousands on the cost of the treatment by choosing his office.

  Today, I feel great!  Before, I could not move and I was always in pain.  My family is so happy to have the “real” me back.  To sum it all up, it really works!

*To begin, I have to tell you that my passion is gardening!  My gardens are beautiful and people from my neighborhood come to see my pride bloom.  

I am 73 years old now and all the hard work of hauling big stones and wheelbarrows of sand finally took a toll on my back, to the point I was walking like a 92 year old lady. 

 My husband worried I would wind up in a wheelchair.  I tried therapy for 3 weeks everyday.  Nothing helped me, I only got worse.  I saw Dr. Stanley’s ad in the Detroit News Paper and came to check out this new machine.  

The price was right and after 1 week on the DRX 9000 I was able to get back upstairs to my bedroom and get a good nights rest.  This beats back surgery, hands down. 

 I highly recommend the DRX 9000 to every person with back pain.

*Hello, my name is Shelley Lewis.  I am a patient of Dr. Shane Stanley, DC of the Novi Spinal Clinic.  

I thank the Lord for the concept and invention of the DRX 9000 and the vision that Dr. Stanley has of helping his patients with this 21st century technology.  

From the reported x-ray that showed injuries to my fourth and fifth lumbar and a broken bone to my spine, Dr. Stanley informed me that surgery (spinal fusion) could be performed, but that I was a candidate for the DRX 9000. 

 I came to his office on a walker and in pain that was unbearable unless medicated.  In December 2006 after 20 plus sessions, within a 3 to 4 month period, the walker is gone! 

 As of December 2007, I am walking one and a half to two miles a day.

*My name is Sam and I was introduced to Dr. Stanley in the fall of 2007.  My first session with the DRX 9000 was in September and I was walking with a walker for my first visit.  

By the 10th visit, I was feeling much better and walking with a cane.  By my 20th visit, I was back to normal activities. 

 I was able to return to regular exercise and light sports activities by January 2008.  I would recommend this to everyone I know with related back issues!

*I am a fifty seven year old and I have been having back pain since I was twenty-nine years old.  

Two years ago, I had a very bad episode with my back and I was on my way to a fusion when a good friend told my wife about Dr. Stanley and the DRX 9000 treatments. 

 I was in a lot of pain and I was taking a lot medication.  I went thru the treatment and at the end of five weeks; I was pain free and drug free.  It was, for me the best thing that had happened to me. 

 I work everyday; I am an electrician and work in construction.  The DRX 9000 is making it possible for me to continue my trade and to hopefully retire in the near future.

Frequently Asked Questions About DRX9000 Therapy

1. What is Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical and drug-free treatment for disc related injuries of the neck and lower back. Spinal Disc Decompression uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, non-surgical decompression to your spine, increasing circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain.

2. How is this different from Traction or an inversion table?

You have muscles that hold your spine together and if these muscles are pulled for to long they contract and resist. Traction therapy is a constant pull and the muscles often guard against this and resist by spasming. When this happens it cannot create enough negative pressure to allow the disc to repair.

Decompression therapy works by reducing this muscles resistance. This creates more negative pressure in the disc which ultimatley helps it repair. 

3. Is this FDA Cleared? 

Yes. The SpineMED and DTS are FDA cleared. A premarket notification, referred to as a 510(k), must be submitted to FDA for clearance. 

4. Is there any research showing the effectiveness of Decompression Therapy? 

Yes. Please click on the link here to see research articles on Decompression Therapy.  

5. Are the treatments painful? 

No. Spinal Decompression is totally safe and comfortable for all subjects. It is not uncommon for some patients to fall asleep during treatment. 

Spinal Disc Decompression has shown to be safe and without side effects or complications once abnormal conditions have been ruled out.

6. What Results can I expect?

It is unethical to guarantee a cure. But Results may differ from patient to patient based on many factors such as Age, condition, length of time, and other health factors. Often times a patient experiences some relief within the first few (3-7) treatments. Usually by the 12th to 18th treatment most patients have reported some remission of symptoms. 

7. Can Spinal Decompression be used for patients that have had spinal surgery?  

Yes. In fact many patients have found success with Spinal Decompression after a failed back surgery. Ultimately the Doctor will determine if Decompression therapy will be beneficial in your particular case. 

8. Am I eligible for Decompression Therapy?

The most common types of conditions that are successfully treated with spinal decompression therapy are (but not limited to): Disc bulges (herniations, slipped, or bulging), sciatica (leg pain), disc disease, stenosis, arm pain, neck, and back pain. The best way to know is to call us for an appointment to see if you are a good candidate.
