Hello Rhoda,
 
I assume you are talking about spinal decompression?  I haven't heard of that being used to treat migraines unless they were caused by a physical injury like whiplash.  But, I'm not an expert in spinal decompression, so I'm not sure if they would use it to treat migraines otherwise.

Sorry I didn't really explain myself. Could migraines be caused by cervical disc herniation? And could the DRX9000 for spinal decompression help?

Thanks, Rhoda

Hi Rhoda,
 
As I said, I'm not an expert, but I would guess that migraines could be caused by cervical disc herniation.  And, if that's the case, I would think that there's a good chance the DRX9000 could help.
 
Good luck,

I honestly hadn't heard of DRX9000 before. You may want to google migraines and "cervical disc herniation." Depending on the results you find there, you could then google "drx9000 for spinal decompression." Good luck! Keep us informed on what you find and how you're doing :)

Rhoda, Please let me know if the dxr helps. My son has had daily chronic migraines since falling when he was 6. The chiro xrayed his neck yesterday and said he has a straightening of the neck spine and some compressed discs. I've some about the dxr machine because of my mother's back. I didn't know it would also help neck problems. His neck hurts sometimes and has some twitches in the neck muscles. They seem tight when he has a migraine. I think that may be common in migraines so I don't know if tight muscles actually cause migraines. He takes Baclofen and it doesn't seem to help prevent migrains but it helps him relax so he can go to sleep.

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to the discussion group.  Life has been filled full since the beginning of March.

My husband went through 9 weeks of cervical spinal decompression for one herniated disc and two bulging discs, chiropractic adjustments and deep tissue massages and WOW!!! what a difference this has made.

He is now migraine free......He continues to get adjustments and massages but has not had a decompression treatment since the beginning of May.

Spinal decompression may not work for everybody but it sure worked wonders for him.

That is wonderful! I went to a week of free visits for the dxr machine, but didn't do futher treatments, the cost of the course of treatments for me was going to be $4,500 and that was out of pocket insurance doesn't pay it. I recently had a micro discectomy for my protruding disc and I'm doing good. I do deal with migraines but don't think it has anything to do with my back, however I do have bone spurs in my neck and it could be related to my migraines.

It's wonderful to hear when others receive pain relief for chronic pain.

Blessings,

Mercyme
