The Lordex Spine System and Lower Lumbar Back Pain Treatment

Dr. Dana McKirahan was one of the first to use and offer lumbar decompression and rehabilitation using the Lordex Spine System. The Lordex Spine System consists of three parts; Lordex 3000 Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy, SomaTrac Axial Inversion Decompression Therapy, RX2 Strength Restoration Therapy.


The Lordex Spine System offers our patients a non-surgical, non-evasive treatment for moderate to severe lower back lumbar pain. The Lordex Spine System uses a special FDA-cleared therapy known as “closed reduction decompression” which alleviates pain by reducing pressures on the discs and nerves in the lower back area, known as the lumbar region of the spine. Lordex® Decompression is a safe “non-surgical” procedure which effectively treats lower back and leg pains associated with conditions such as Disc Herniation, Disc Bulge, Sciatica, Stenosis, Arthritis, Degeneration, Facet Syndrome, Spondylolisthesis, Osteoporosis and more.

Decompression Therapy vs. Back Surgery


Lower-Lumbar-Back-Pain-TreatmentBack or spine surgery is very serious and sometimes unavoidable. However, do you know that out of all lower back pain sufferers, less than 1% are actually surgical candidates. While you may need surgery to help relieve and manage your lower back or leg pains, you will need additional effective treatment. Dr. McKirahan and Lordex are your logical choice. Lordex provides effective and successful long-term relief from lower back pain through non-evasive and non-surgical procedures. Surgery is an open reduction decompression procedure while the Lordex system is a closed reduction decompression procedure. Surgery is an open fusion procedure for stabilization while the Lordex is a closed stabilization procedure through increased Para spinal muscle strengthening. We feel back surgery is the last or obvious option, if there is something we can do to avoid or prevent it, we will. Call our office and learn the facts and available treatment options you have.

The Lordex Spine System strives to be the standard of care for acute to chronic lower back pain. There are two general categories of back pain, medical (such as fractures, tumors, infections or metabolic disease) and mechanical (such as Osteoporosis or from pregnancy). Mechanical conditions that contribute to lower back pain can be inherited (from parents), congenital (from birth) or acquired components. These lower back pain conditions can lead to spinal instabilities, such as disc herniation, degenerative joints, Sciatica or Facet Syndrome.

Dr. McKirahan evaluates patients that suffer from medical or mechanical related lower back pain to determine the cause and the most appropriate method of treatment, which can include spinal decompression therapy. The Lordex Spine Systems was developed in Houston, Texas by a doctor for doctors to specifically treat acute to severe lower back pain issues. It consists of two types of spinal decompression treatments followed by strengthening and rehabilitation therapy. We recommend leaning more about the Lordex Spine System and what we can do to help relieve and in most cases, eliminate your lower back pain.
