Have You Been Shocked by the Sticker Price For Spinal Decompression Treatment on the DRX9000 at a Colorado Springs Spinal Decompression Clinic?
If you have arrived at a Colorado Springs Chiropractic clinic with a herniated disc, and have been surprised at the enormous cost for spinal decompression, using the DRX9000 treatment, then you are not alone.
We recently received a phone call from a new patient who had visited our website and saw that we advertised flexible payment options. Her first question was, "Do you have to pay all of the cost upfront, because that is our only option at the Chiropractic clinic we are currently going to?"
Our answer was, "No, you don't have to pay the cost upfront, unless you choose to. We have zero-interest for 12 months programs, autopay options, we can split it out over 3-4 payments, and a few other options."
She then told me her spinal decompression story:
This patient's husband had seen one of the big glossy advertisements for spinal decompression, responded, and was told it would cost $3,900 and that they had to pay it all upfront, cash. They were given no other option.
She and her husband knew that they needed care, but at first she thought that this Colorado Springs Chiropractor and the DRX9000 were the only spinal decompression options in town. They just could stomach the cost, so she did a little researching and found us.
We were able to explain to her that when the DRX9000 first came out, it cost upwards of $150,000, and that cost is passed down to patients. This cost did not equate to a better machine.
In fact, after 6 months of research, we chose against the DRX9000 because it is essentially a computerized flat bed that moves back and forth, with a bunch of bells and whistles. It sure is pretty, but it is not the best machine on the market.
We chose the Kennedy Decompression Table for its versitility. Notice the pictures to the right. On top is a picture of the DRX9000, and below is the Kennedy Decompression Table. The DRX9000 never changes positions. The Kennedy table has two hydraulics that can place the patient in various positions for comfort and directional pull on the spine, depending on the displacement of the disc(s).
The Kennedy table is the only table that can treat a patient in a prone or supine position (face up or down). It also uses vibrational technology.
But, we've saved the best for last: This treatment is at least half the cost of the DRX9000. For the lady that called our office, her quote was $250 per treatment (which included spinal decompression, chiropractic and possibly another therapy). For the same treatment, the cost at our clinic would be at least 1/2 of that price.
