Center offers new treatment for back pain

The Fraum Chiropractic Life Center on Hilton Head Island now offers a new nonsurgical and drug-free treatment called DRX to treat debilitating back pain and sciatica.

The spinal decompression treatment was the subject of a recent article published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Medicine, examining a study of patients at the Mayo Clinic with chronic low back pain. They were treated with DRX after trying other therapies. The DRX system proved to be more than 88 percent effective overall.

“The good news is that after six weeks of DRX treatment, roughly nine out of 10 had successful outcomes,” said Dr. Brad Fraum, founder of the Fraum Chiropractic Life Center.
