The Lordex Lumbar Spine Program is a system developed to restore spinal stability and relieve pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome and radiating pain.
The Lordex non-surgical, non-invasive system for management of disabling low back pain incorporates two proprietary machines: the Lordex Decompression Unit (LDU), and the Lordex Lumbar Extension Machine (RX-1). The LDU is designed to unload the spine, achieving that affect through decompression. The unique and versatile design allows angle specific, variable positioning to focus on the specific lesion, disc, or vertebrae which is the source of the pain.
Can the Lordex System work for everyone?
Clinical results indicate 80%, or more, or persons suffering from the common causes of low back pain could be provided relief by proper application of the Lordex program and protocols.
Patients with fractures, tumors, infections or metabolic disease are not candidates for treatment for the Lordex program. Your physician determines proper course of treatment, candidate status, and whether your condition exceeds the limits of a non-surgical program. About Lordex Treatment
Each Lordex session consists of treatment on the LDU and RX-1 and takes approximately 45 minutes. The complete Lordex treatment program requires 20 hours over a 4 to 6 week period. The treatment is painless and most patients find the experience relaxing. Lordex is primary treatment for the management of pain for patients with disabling low back pain. Treatment is administered with patients fully clothed.
