Waterford Lakes Wellness & Injury Care offers the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic lower back pain and sciatica.

Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA approved DRX9000 spinal decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated and/or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • A relapse or failure following surgery Spinal Stenosis 

Recent advances in biotechnology, focusing on spinal decompression, have evolved into effective non-surgical treatment for herniated and degenerative spinal disc disease Ė major causes of spinal pain. Injured discs can be treated by non-surgically decompressing the affected spinal segment, which significantly reduces intradiscal pressures, thereby permitting healing and recovery (1).


The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical outcomes of spinal decompression therapy for patients suffering from low back pain caused by herniated and degenerative disc disease. 

According to the National Institutes of Health, low back pain (LBP) is one of the most significant health problems facing Americans, with an estimated 85% of us having back pain at some time
in our lives. In fact, back pain is the most frequent cause of activity limitation in people less
than 45 years old. But thanks to a new technology, Health Solutions is able to offer lower back
pain sufferers a highly-effective, non-surgical solution to this growing health concern.

Over ten years ago, NASA was the first to investigate the effects of spinal decompression on intervertebral discs during space travel. It found that astronauts were relieved of LBP in
anti-gravity conditions, and that disc height actually increased during a space mission. The
question then became how to successfully replicate these phenomena here on earth.

With state-of-the-art hardware and software, proven scientific principles and anatomical
modeling, design engineers and physicians from Axiom Worldwide (Tampa, FL) collaborated
to develop the DRX9000. DRX 9000 has been shown to be highly capable of relieving the
compression on the spinal nerves caused by disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and posterior facet syndrome.

Decompression is caused by distraction forces applied by the DRX onto a specially-designed pelvic harness that the patient wears. The automatic shoulder support and chest harness provide stabilization for the upper body, and help to distribute the applied forces evenly. The angle of pull (automatically controlled by the DRX) and a special air bladder acting as a fulcrum,
allow the user to target a specific disc level for treatment. The split table design decreases friction and allows separation of the vertebra, thereby minimizing the effect of gravity.

     The real key to this treatment however, is that the distraction forces are applied using a logarithmic approach to avoid the typical muscle-proprioceptor response (spasm) associated with traditional traction. Since more force is directed to the joint rather than the muscles, a significant negative pressure results, expanding the space between adjacent vertebra and enhancing fluid diffusion to the discs. Restoring nutrients and blood flow to the disc encourages the healing process. In the case of a herniation, the negative pressure may be sufficient enough to help the leaking nucleus retreat back into its intended home, while the annulus can seal its
tear. Patients typically undergo a series of 20 to 24 treatment sessions, each session lasting 35-40 minutes. The patient is seen daily for the first two weeks of treatment, then three times a week as needed.

Clinical research studies show up to an 86% success rate using the DRX. Those patients who fail to respond, usually donít follow the prescribed treatment protocol. Once treatment is complete, patients are given back and abdominal strengthening exercises to help avoid future injury, and nutritional guidance if excessive body weight is an issue.

A successfully completed treatment is a win-win scenario for both the patient who avoided surgery and the insurance payor who would have faced a much larger bill if surgery was performed. (A complete DRX treatment protocol is roughly 1/10th the cost of
a traditional spinal surgery used to repair a disc herniation.)

Contraindications for the treatment include pregnancy, fractures, diffuse osteoporosis, bone cancer, and the presence of spinal implants.


Due to a surge in consultations with Dr. Nahali FREE consultations are limited and book up fast, so CALL 407-273-2200 NOW to reserve your place for a NO CHARGE DRX 9000 CONSULTATION. Your consultation will include a clinical history, examination and an MRI review that cuts through the confusion and will reveal if you qualify for DRX 9000 treatment. THERE'S STILL TIME! CALL 407-273-2200.

Our Clinic is currently accepting referrals from doctors and patients. To make a referral, call us at 407-273-2200 or send an email to Please include your name, address, phone number and whether you are a doctor or a prospective patient who is interested in learning more about this effective non-surgical treatment for lower back pain.
Our mission is to relieve the pain and suffering of people of our Community, and help them live happier healthier lives without drugs and surgery.

Please remember that research proves this therapy successful only by adhering to the strict protocol set forth. This treatment plan is not on a per session basis. It is proven to work with 20 consecutive treatments within a 6 week period of time. Some patients feel better after 8 to 10 treatments and feel that they are healed. This is not the case. As fast as those symptoms disappear, they will return just the same. The research indicates that patients who terminate care prematurely have a significant likelyhood of reoccurrence and may actually increase further damage. Patients may also feel sore and even a little pain from time to time in the course of treatment. This is quite normal and your treating physician will take precautions to minimize your discomfort.
