A female patient presented with severe back and leg pain, and could no longer work as a chef, which she dearly loves. An MRI revealed a 15 mm disc herniation, with extrusion. It was not so long ago that nearly everyone agreed that a case of extrusion was a surgical case. But now, with the advent of the DRX 9000 spinal decompression, coupled with APL light therapy and Medx exercise rehabilitation, we can handle many of these cases. This patient has nearly no pain now, exercises regularly, and is getting ready to get back to the kitchen.
