Dr Fink and The Truth Behind Spine Surgery

Spine Doctor

The revolutionary technology behind Spinal Decompression makes it possible for a unique and highly specific force to target the specific damaged disc and problem vertebrae in the spine. The decompression force gently stretches the spine where needed, causing negative pressure to develop in the damaged disc. This causes the disc bulge (or herniation) to move off of the injured nerve and retract back into the disc. At the same time, the negative pressure also draws water, oxygen and nutrients back into the disc, restoring and rejuvenating the disc towards a normal height.

Spinal Decompression is unique in that it heals at the source. It is not a temporal fix. It does not mask symptoms. This is true healing. Your pain diminishes as your disc heals.

There are several decompression systems on the market. The DRX9000 is considered by many doctors to be the leading technology in Spinal Decompression.

What is a Whiplash Doctor?

What is Whiplash?

Neck and spinal cord injuries from a car accident need proper and timely care to give the victim the best chance of a full recovery. While some consider whiplash to be a minor injury, the long-term effects of whiplash can leave the car accident victim in chronic pain long after the accident occurred. Whiplash is caused by the sudden hyper-extension and hyper flexion of the neck, resulting in the painful displacement of vertebrae, nerves and tissue. While whiplash is associated with motor vehicle accidents, the neck can hyper-extend in sports, falls and other activities.

How do I treat Whiplash?

For minor neck injuries, chiropractic adjustments may be all that it is needed to properly address the pain. However, serious car accidents may result in more traumatic injuries to the neck and spinal cord, potentially leading to permanent brain damage. What may appear to be a minor or moderate neck injury may leave the motor vehicle accident victim with significant brain damage. Severe whiplash injury can cause brain damage as nerves connected to the brain may be damaged during the accident. If neck or spinal cord trauma is suspected, emergency medical services are responsible for safe transportation to the receiving medical facility where further treatment will begin. Proper communication of pain or loss of motor function during any part of treatment is vital to keep the patient safe.

A Revolutionary Treatment for Back and Neck Pain

Spinal Decompression is an incredibly successful treatment for severe chronic back or neck pain. It is non-surgical and non-invasive. There are no drugs or medications involved. And, there are no known side effects. It is proven to be successful even with patients who have had limited success with other conventional therapies like drugs, injections, chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage, acupuncture, and even failed surgery.

The most common conditions successfully treated by Spinal Decompression include herniated discs, bulging or protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, stenosis, spinal arthritis, posterior facet syndrome and sciatica.
