The very first day on the machine I stopped taking Percocet and have used none since. I would recommend to anyone who has back and leg pain to try the machine as it has made a world of difference in me.

Since I had my treatments on the DRX9000C, I walk straighter and quicker. I actually can go for a walk and I have more energy.

Tom C. - DRX Patient

This all started in a 1989 auto accident. The pain never stopped. Over the years I have tried every treatment: injections, medication, physical therapy. The pain was still there. I had my first treatment on the DRX on Feb. 09, 2009. The next day I felt better. Thanks to the DRX, I feel better than ever.

Helen C. - DRX Patient

I thank God that I saw the advertisement in the Post and Courier! My bulging disc was diagnosed when I went to my doctor complaining of pain in my leg. I was treated with an epidural injection and my pain did not improve much. Today, I am happy to say, that after my treatment on the DRX9000, I no longer limp and I can easily walk again.

Mary A. - DRX Patient

I can’t thank Summerville Spine & Disc enough for giving my life back. The pain is gone and I am a very happy camper

Ruby S. - DRX Patient

I had a painful back disorder called degenerative disc disease. Dr. Froehly and his associates got me back to walking again and even playing golf

Eugene K - Chiropractic/ DRX 9000 patient

After three surgeries and years of pain, I decided to try the DRX9000C spinal decompression treatment. These treatments, combined with chiropractic adjustments, have resulted in significant relief. I would not have believed that I would feel so good. The quality of my life has definitely improved.”

I simply lucked out when I found Dr. Froehly The staff at Summerville Spine & Disc are amazing and very well informed. I was in so much pain when I first visited Dr. Froehly, and after 2 visits my pain decreased by 50%! After a few more visits I felt 20 years younger! Thank You! Thank You!

Jim Derento

I am so glad that I had the treatment on the DRX. My back is feeling good and I would tell anyone with a disc problem to go there. Thank you, Dr. Froehly.”

Mary W / DRX Patient

From the time I walked in the door I was impressed! I was seen promptly, and Dr. Froehly was a true professional. When I was younger I was in a car accident and have been suffering with neck and back pain. Almost to the point that I couldn't get out of bed! After 6 treatments I started to see relief, and today it's like the accident never happened. I've been seeing Dr. Froehly for about 2 years now and I am so excited about the future!
