Who Else Wants To Get Busted By An Undercover Holiday Elf?

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Here’s an interesting fact: If you were driving in December and saw an elf –and you didn’t slow down, you were in trouble. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office (in Florida) hatched a new plan to stop speeders. And it’s unlike anything you have probably seen before.

Here’s how it worked: a sheriff’s officer standing on the side of the road DRESSED AS AN ELF and clocked cars using a radar gun and then radioed ahead to a motorcycle deputy to stop the speeders and give them a ticket.

Did it work? I’d say so. More than 150 tickets were written in just over two hours. But, some people thought the “elf disguise” just wasn’t right, and complained about using a holiday icon to trick speeders. In response to complaints, Ken Wyne of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said, “We didn’t choose a nativity scene. We chose an elf. An elf is known for their impish behavior. If you’re going to speed in Orange County, you never know who’s going to be on the street corner.” Who else wants to see the Easter Bunny arresting muggers? Now that’s something they should have on pay-per-view!

All kidding aside, many have the wrong attitude about this elf speeding sting operation. And here’s why. They think they are being tricked into getting a ticket. When the truth is: If you speed… and only slow down when you actually see a police officer… you are eventually going to get caught. It’s plain and simple odds. It’s the same when it comes to selecting the right doctors or chiropractor to work on your back condition.

Selecting the correct doctor for your spine problem is imperative. Selecting the wrong doctor all the time will only get you in trouble. At New Century Spine Centers in San Diego, the chiropractors are some of the best in the field and specialize in treating back conditions with advanced therapies like spinal decompression therapy.

Is Spinal Decompression Making Back Surgery For Herniated And Bulging Discs Obsolete?

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Since offering treatment for herniated and bulging discs with spinal decompression therapy in San Diego, we have heard over and over things like “I can’t believe I was actually thinking about surgery. But when I got the results of my MRI and I had multiple herniated discs, my other doctor said it was my only choice. If it wasn’t for the news special they had on ABC News with Carol LeBeau and your free reports (with all the proof!), I never would have known about spinal decompression and I’d probably still be suffering today. It feels great to be finally pain free and NOT have to go through surgery – but why didn’t my other doctor know about ABS and DRX9000 Spinal Decompression and send me to you first? When he said there were no other scientifically proven treatments and surgery was my only option, it made me much more skeptical about what you said about spinal decompression in San Diego. It was hard for me to believe that there was such an amazing breakthrough treatment out there and my doctor didn’t know anything about it. Why wasn’t I given ALL the information right from the beginning? That’s why I went to my doctor in the first place! I just wonder how many people go through unnecessary surgery and continue suffering simply from misinformation and fear?”

There may not be an answer to the question. But it is known that there are a lot of people suffering and having unnecessary surgeries. And the most important thing is if you are suffering with back pain, leg pain, leg numbness, tingling and/or pain, sciatica or if you have been diagnosed with a herniated and/or bulging disc there is a very good chance you can get help without drugs or surgery. And the fact of the matter is there is scientific proof that the Spinal Decompression System has achieved an 86% success rate with herniated and/or bulging discs.
Surgery cannot even come close to claiming those kinds of results. I have seen some studies claiming surgery gets a 50% success rate.

According to a U.S. Federal guideline on low back pain, “Surgery has been found to be helpful on only 1 in 100 causes of low back pain problems. Even having a lot of back pain does not, by itself, mean you need surgery.” That’s coming from a panel of experts commissioned by the United States Federal Government! What the panel of experts found and reported in that guideline was quite eye-opening to say the least. Here’s the reference if you’d like to take a look at it for yourself: Bigos s, et al. Acute Low Back Pain Problems In Adults, Clinical Practice Guidelines No 14. Rockville, MD: U.S. Public Health Service, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, AHCPR pub. No 95-0642, Dec. 1994.

But here’s what I’m really shocked about: so many patients tell me they were “afraid” to try the ABS Spinal Decompression, they were “afraid” not to get surgery, they were told and believed they would be taking a risk trying the ABS before going under the knife. For the life of me, I can’t understand how cutting into your back and either cutting away the herniated or bulging part of your disc or surgically fusing a couple of your spinal segments can be thought of as an option before trying drx 9000 spinal decompression therapy in San Diego.

This is not to say surgery is never an option. In some cases it is. But, in many cases, it clearly should not be your first and only option. With spinal decompression, in many cases, your herniated disc is actually fixed – not cut out or fused. Spinal decompression achieves this through its cutting edge computer technology. This computer technology creates a logarithmic curve that senses your body an amazing 17 times per second. When the spinal decompression machine starts to distract your injured spinal segments, if your muscles begin to contract, the computer knows instantly and backs off slightly.

The computer picks up even the slightest amount of pressure from your muscles which is why treatments are painless and most patients say they don’t feel anything at all. Many even fall asleep during treatments while they are listening to their favorite music or watching a DVD movie. This distraction process continues until a negative pressure is achieved and the herniated disc is, in many cases, sucked back into place. Pre and post MRI studies have actually shown that herniated disc material has gone back into place and discs have increased in size and become much healthier. This negative pressure also allows valuable water and nutrients to flow into the disc so it can regain height and heal naturally.

As opposed to surgery that cuts out the herniated disc – leaving it damaged and predisposed to further injury. This is also much different from regular traction which has been shown to be ineffective at treating herniated and bulging discs.
