"I had almost constant low back pain with numbness and tingling down my leg to my foot continuously for two years. It was depressing thinking that I would have to live with it for the rest of my life. Now I no longer have constant back pain. This worked where surgery failed."
- Tamara Pipkorn, Milwaukee, Nurse
"The pain in my lower back and right leg made walking and standing activities almost impossible. My right knee began to remain in a bent position. The severe pain was present for five months. Disc decompression leaves my body untouched and / or altered by surgery and gives me a better opportunity to heal in a natural manner."
- Chloe Wandschneider, Oshkosh, Retired Elementary Teacher
"I had sciatica for 15 years or more. I was in such pain I just couldn’t stand it. The changes were tremendous. It was worth every penny. I’ve been pain-free ever since and that is a blessing."
- Lorna Kernan, Retired, Milwaukee
"I have had severe disc degeneration for many years which gave me incapacitating pain and resulted in being confined to bed with medication. Now I feel better and stronger and can’t wait to get back to doing things I love. It beats surgery."
- Linda Hageman, Milwaukee, Proof Operator
"I had years of extreme pain in the lower back shooting down into the right leg when driving. I could only sit for 20-30 minutes without having to stop the car and walk for 15 minutes to ease the pain and get feeling back. Now most of my back pain is completely gone. I can drive farther before I have to stop and stretch. The treatment worked where another doctor said I’d need surgery."
- Bruce Jensen, West Allis, Truck Driver
"I had tried almost everything else, laminectomy, epidurals, acupuncture, needles with medication in areas of pain and other types of traction. I am able to walk longer distances, stand for much longer periods of time with no pain."
- Jean Palasz, Milwaukee, Housewife
"I couldn’t stand the pain anymore. I’d had this problem for eighteen years. I could not move, sit or lay down without chronic severe pain and lots of medication. Now I can get through the day without major pain and I can sleep through the night. After being in pain as long as I have, it’s nice not to hurt."
- Charles Novotny, West Bend, Truck Driver
"I was in constant pain and during those rare times I wasn’t I was afraid to do anything that would make it worse. I went off on duty disability in 98, surgery in 01 and down hill since then. I couldn’t sit, stand, bend or anything much for any period of time. I got grouchy, stopped almost all activity and spent a lot of time lying down. I had tried PT, exercises, anti-inflammatories, pain killers, muscle relaxers, surgery, acupuncture, meditation and massage. My pain level is down 90% consistently. I’m beginning to sleep better, want to do more, have more endurance and mobility. The results tell the tale, it works!"
- James Koleas, Milwaukee, Security Consultant
"I feel more limber and have been able to walk greater distances with a lot less pain. The pain level has decreased considerably."
- Claudia Kaltz, Sussex, Silk Screener
"My extreme lower back pain began two years ago. When I entered, I was met by Julie, I immediately felt like this place was different. After consulting with Dr. Donaldson he came up with a game plan. I was very impressed with his knowledge and compassion. I never felt rushed or under any pressure. After the tenth visit I was moving around without pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Donaldson’s office and his course of treatment. My life is better now and I am living pain free. I am also enjoying activities that I haven’t done for years. PS. Julie’s cookies are awesome."
- Todd E. Liddell, Brown Deer, Painter
"I was one of the almost desperate ones when I came to Dr. Donaldson. The DRX9000 appeared to offer a ray of hope so I signed up and am I delighted! Delighted to be able to say good bye to low back pain and hello to easier walking, more comfortable sitting and more restful nights. No more ice packs, heating pads, or Vicodin thanks to the treatments."
- Sister Joan Koskie, Milwaukee, Retired

- Richard Gross, Milwaukee, Planner
"For the past twenty years I had hip and back pain. I started the decompression plan on March 3, 2006. It made a difference in my pain level and started me back to living again. Today (February, 2008) I’ve gotten to the point I take almost no pain medication. I am very happy with the results. It’s like a miracle."
- Joyce Wendegatz, Milwaukee, Retired retail sales

- Lorraine Gustin, Milwaukee, Retired
"My back feels much stronger and more flexible after the DRX-9000 procedure. It has improved my disposition greatly. Being afraid to do anything for fear of hurting my back generated a very bad attitude. This changed immediately with evaluation and treatment. I believe this is a fast and effective procedure."
- Robert Geier, Milwaukee, Retired
"This is the only treatment that has had some effect. Very professional, considerate, courteous and knowledgeable staff."
- Milton Sekely, Cedarburg, Retired

- Sue Wassenberg, Milwaukee, Retired
"I have a herniated disc. My leg would make me momentarily paralyzed. Now I have eliminated 95% of the need for pain killers. Most activities are back to normal and I have more energy."
- Sheila Noll, Electronic Helenville, Assembly
"The pain was so intense I couldn’t walk. Now the numbness and pain in my legs is gone. I am walking better with no pain and the shuffling of my feet is nearly non-existent."
- Diane Gierach, Saukville, Legal Secretary
"For the last three years I was told I needed back surgery. The pain was so severe that I didn’t want to go anyplace. Shopping was almost out of the question. I couldn’t walk without my cane and even then it was close to impossible. The pain was so severe I would fall to the floor. Now I can walk and go places, my mood has changed and my pain has almost gone. This saved me from surgery and has changed my life."
- James Piquette, Oak Creek, Retired
"I had been in pain for about six months after doing some gardening. I was seen by an orthopedic surgeon and a neurosurgeon and the only option was surgery to relieve my back pain and the pain in my leg. I also had two injections in my spine that helped me a little. After doing some research on my computer I found Dr. Donaldson with his non-surgical non-invasive treatment. I started feeling better after just four or five treatments. Now I am back on track. I can do things that were difficult for me. I am very thankful to Dr. Donaldson Julie and the DRX-9000. You make my visits relaxing and enjoyable."
- Margarita, Bayside, Nurse
