Spinal Decompression Therapy in Forsyth County, NC

For Winston-Salem resident and registered nurse Debbie Fitts, lower back pain and sciatica had become a way of life. Since 2002, she had sought help from many local experts including a neurosurgeon, orthopedist, and Rheumatologist with little to no pain relief. She had almost given up hope after failed treatments, medications, and injections.

She was even scheduled for a spinal epidural injection last year. Last February, she contacted Dr. Paul Williams for a consultation about the DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression System. Debbie started treatment, and by the end of the first week, she felt a tremendous decrease in pain and increase in mobility. By the end of treatment, Debbie had complete relief of lower back and sciatic pain for the first time in three and a half years. Debbie says,

“I thank God for Dr. Paul Williams and his staff. The DRX 9000 was an answer to my prayers when I had given up hope of ever feeling well again.”

PGA golf professional and Golf Channel host Frank Nobilo had also almost given up hope. Here’s what says Frank Nobilo says,

“It’s like a modern miracle. I was in agony. I can actually have a normal life that I never thought was possible.”


Having surgery is a big step for any kind of treatment, whether you need your appendix removed or you are considering surgery for pain relief. There’s the risk of surgery itself, the physical therapy afterward, and the unsure results. Yet, you want your pain to heal. So what do you do?

Williams Chiropractic in Clemmons offers a non-surgical spinal decompression therapy with DRX9000. This amazing spinal decompression machine can help treat pain related to sciatica and other symptoms, from herniated, protruding, and bulging discs to degenerative disc disease and facet syndrome. So, how does this amazing lower back pain treatment machine work?

  • Stretches the spine. Spinal elongation involves spreading apart the bony vertebra of the spine when your muscles that guard the spine are relaxed. This act relieves pressure on the nerves and discs.
  • Creates gaps between the discs. These gaps are the natural gaps that normally occur but have been pinched off from some force, which is probably partially contributing to your pain.
  • Flow flow promotes healing. As these gaps become longer, blood flow improves. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients that your body needs to naturally heal itself.
  • Herniated disc fluids retreat. As the pressure is released in your spine, herniated disc fluids that have been squeezed and built up, which can cause pain, are now released.


DRX9000 treatments can be done over your lunch hour. They are approximately 30 minutes in length. You will lie on a comfortable bed and be strapped in for security. There is a TV monitor where you can watch TV, listen to music, or even nap. The spinal decompression machine does the rest, alternating focus that will help restore and nourish your vertebra back to health and wellness.


There may be light side effects associated with this spinal decompression treatment, mostly sore muscles from the stretching, similar to sore muscles from exercising. In addition, your chiropractor may prescribe additional chiropractic treatments, such as electrical stimulation, cold therapy, more spinal or neck decompression treatments, or more.

Of course, it’s hard to predict individual results of any type of therapy, including spinal and neck decompression therapy. We suggest that if you are interested in our spinal decompression machine to schedule a consultation with one of our chiropractors. After an evaluation and medical history consultation, we’ll be better able to advise you.

Dr. Williams was one of the first chiropractors to utilize the DRX 9000 in North Carolina, and he reports,

“Spinal decompression therapy is a major advancement in the treatment of back pain because it has proven to have lasting results. I have helped many patients with chronic pain who think there is no hope, even those who have had prior surgery. My clinical results with spinal decompression have been excellent when treating patients who suffer from low back pain due to bulging and herniated discs. Most patients I see have tried everything from medication to surgery. Thanks to this technology, I am able to help patients quickly without any risks or complications.”

Treatment for the patient is extremely comfortable, and most patients fall asleep during their 30 minute treatment session. This non-surgical treatment mimics “zero gravity.” In many cases, the pain resolves after the first few minutes of being on the machine.
