AICA Tucker’s Chiropractors Explain: “What Is The DMR Method?”

Oct 17, 2016

When you tell your children they are a pain in the neck, you may not be embellishing as much as you think.

Bending to help your kids with tasks such as eating, bathing, using the restroom, getting dressed, picking up their toys, coloring a photo, cleaning a scrape and searching for monsters under their bed can be taxing on your body.

Treating Back Pain

Back pain can range from irritating to immobilizing, and when you have children to shuttle to soccer practice, work to finish, dinner to cook or a workout to cram in, managing back pain is likely to be low on your list of priorities.

When trying to manage acute back pain, surgical procedures can be painful and expensive, with recovery times that can last several weeks.

If you want to relieve your back pain with a less invasive procedure, consider the DMR Method.

What is DMR?

The DMR method, short for Decompress, Mobilize, and Rehabilitate, is a non-surgical procedure designed to ease back pain related to disc herniation and other back pain.

This approach requires no medication and no surgery. The treatment plan usually lasts about ten weeks and combines several types of therapies to accomplish long-lasting relief from pain.

Who will benefit from DMR?

You may be eligible for DMR treatment if you have moderate to severe back pain due to disk herniation or pain that results in numbness in your back and extremities.

If you suffer from chronic pain in your back or neck, DMR should be considered.

Is DMR safer than surgery?

Yes. All operations are inherently risky. From infections to blood clots, surgeries are aggressive, uncomfortable and costly.

While some patients may benefit from surgical procedures, it may not be necessary to achieve pain relief.

The DMR method does not require any surgery and does not rely on prescription medication to relieve pain, eliminating the risk of addiction or allergic reaction to the prescribed medicines.

What does the DMR method entail?

The most important step of DMR is determining the source of your pain. Regardless of whether you suffer from an injury or illness, your neck and back pain has an underlying cause that needs to be addressed for you to completely recover.

Identifying what triggers or what inflames your back and neck help you prevent further pain or damage. Additionally, the DMR method includes cold laser therapy, oscillation decompression therapy, and physical therapy.

You will also learn different stretches and exercises you can perform on your own to help reduce pain.

Your doctor may even recommend dietary changes or the addition of mineral and vitamin supplements to aid in the pain reduction process.

DMR’s Success Rate?

96% of patients who used the DMR method noticed considerable pain relief.

In addition to being safer and more convenient than surgery, the success rate in reducing pain is better.

You can enjoy life more and feel painless without having to undergo an invasive procedure.
