I came in to Dr. Ferrigno for lower back pain. It’s a problem that I have had for about 10 to 15 years. I tried everything from physiatrists, medical doctors, doctor of osteopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture, pain medications, epidural injections and everything was a temporary fix. I decided to try the DRX therapy and I’ve gone from an average pain level between 5/7 out of 10 all the way down to a pain level of 1 to 2 pretty consistently. The DRX was definitely the only thing that has made me feel better.
I suffer from severe and sometimes unbearable neck pain. I tried acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, and physical therapy with no significant improvement in my neck. After coming to Bay Area Disc Centers, and with Dr. Thomas Ferrigno’s non-surgical spinal decompression program, I finally achieved a significant reduction in pain.
During the 1 ½ years of having constant daily lower back pain and spasms (on and off), I took anti-inflammatory and pain medication, but nothing helped lessen the pain. Physical therapy didn’t help. When an MRI showed that I had two degenerative discs, I went through a series of lumbar epidural injections. The first one helped a tiny bit, but the others didn’t do a thing for my pain. The only thing that made the pain and spasms go away was spinal decompression treatments at Bay Area Disc Centers. Four years later and I am still pain-free!
Dr. Ferrigno and Staff,
My sincere thanks to all of you for restoring me to good health. When I came to you with numbness in my hand and arm and severe back pain, you assured me that there was hope. Not only did you make that happen, you also gave me back my energy and sense of well being.
Dr. Ferrigno, and the entire staff have been warm and welcoming, without fail. I owe you much and “thank you” doesn’t begin to cover it!
P.S. I only wish I had come to you sooner
Prior to treatment at Bay Area Disc Centers, I was always tired from constant back pain. Since completing the DRX program, I feel like a new person. I am able to bend and walk pain-free. In fact, other people have asked me what I have done as my increased mobility has been noticed by people around me!
Thank you Dr. Ferrigno and Bay Area Disc Centers!
Hello my name is Eric Wiles and I came in 4 months ago due to a bulging disc in my lower back. For 3 months I experienced a lot of pain which caused me to miss work. I had tried traditional chiropractic, physical therapy, but nothing improved my situation. It took about 2 weeks for all my symptoms to go away. I feel a 100% better with the spinal decompression treatment. I am thankful for the staff and Dr. Ferrigno for taking care of my needs and making me feel better.
I started coming to Dr. Ferrigno in September 2009. Some symptoms that I had were a very tight sore back every morning when I got up out of bed, and I have some back problems that I’ve been born with: scoliosis and a deep arch in my back. It was very difficult to lie on the floor, and put my lower back on the floor, even with my legs tucked in.
When I started treatment on the DRX9000, I started seeing improvement within a couple of months; and after 6 months, I really noticed that I was able to get my back on the ground. It continues to improve, and I don’t wake up with back pain anymore.
Before coming to the Bay Area Disc Centers and meeting Dr. Ferrigno and his wonderful staff, I suffered daily from nagging lower back pain and tightness. After receiving a thorough and detailed examination, The doctors assured me that I was good candidate for a procedure that would correct my problem. I was then introduced to the DRX 9000 decompression system, and after only one 28-minute session—just one!!—my lower back pain was reduced to almost nothing. In the following sessions I received for my particular problem, it only got better and better until I no longer suffered from any back pain on a daily biases. The after-care physical training I received, along with the knowledge I acquired to keep myself pain-free, was outstanding. And now, with periodic tune-ups my life, it’s so much better! As a nature photographer, it is essential that my back stays strong and pain free. Thank you Dr. Ferrigno and Bay Area Disc Centers!
Over a year ago I began to experience severe neck problems due to osteoarthritis. The pain in my neck and around my head became so severe that I was utterly unable to function or even sleep. Physical therapy did nothing for me; I was in desperation. With Dr. Ferrigno’s decompression therapy, my neck pains had virtually began to vanish within months of treatments.
Subsequently, I began to experience severe sciatic pain on my right side due to similar problems in my lower back. At one point, I was unable to even walk without assistance. I then began decompression treatments for my lower back on the DRX machines. Relief was slow but, suddenly after 8 weeks, my symptoms once again began to virtually disappear. At the present time, I am essentially pain-free. It has been almost miraculous.
I owe my present return to full life, which can only be possible with no pain and full mobility, to Dr. Ferrigno and his caring support technicians, Kayla and Kirsten, into whose care I submit myself regularly.
