Clinical Efficacy and Safety of Axiom Worldwide DRX9000 Axial Decompression System for Treatment of Low Back Pain
This study will document efficacy and safety of the Axiom Worldwide DRX9000â„¢ for treatment of low back pain (LBP) in a prospective, randomized, crossover, multicenter trial utilizing a standardized clinical research multimodal protocol. During the first two weeks subjects are randomized to receive either conservative care or DRX treatment first and then cross over to receive either conservative care or DRX treatment the next 6 weeks. This study will test the hypothesis that standardized 6-week treatment regimen of spinal decompression using DRX9000â„¢ will reduce chronic lower back pain more than conservative therapy (current baseline therapy).
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A condition of persistent pain and discomfort in the BACK and the LEG following lumbar surgery, often seen in patients enrolled in pain centers.
Pain associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR in CHILDBIRTH. It is caused primarily by UTERINE CONTRACTION as well as pressure on the CERVIX; BLADDER; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Labor pain mostly occurs in the ABDOMEN; the GROIN; and the BACK.
Acute or chronic pain in the lumbar or sacral regions, which may be associated with musculo-ligamentous SPRAINS AND STRAINS; INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; and other conditions.
Acute or chronic pain located in the posterior regions of the THORAX; LUMBOSACRAL REGION; or the adjacent regions.
Inflammation of the SACROILIAC JOINT. It is characterized by lower back pain, especially upon walking, fever, UVEITIS; PSORIASIS; and decreased range of motion. Many factors are associated with and cause sacroiliitis including infection; injury to spine, lower back, and pelvis; DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS; and pregnancy.
A large study in Mallorca, Spain showed that nonspecific low back pain is quite prevalent in adolescents 13-15 years of age (Kovacs, 2003). Since below the age of seven years hardly any ch...
This pilot study will determine the feasibility of enrolling participants from different populations for a larger study of low back pain (LBP) treatment. In addition, this study will asses...
Context: Acute low back pain (LBP) is a common reason for consultations in primary care. Reducing the pain in the first hours and days and restoring the functional capacity of the lumbar s...
Low back pain is a frequent cause of disability and a common reason for outpatient care in veterans. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the lower back often reveals abnormalities,which ma...
Low back pain has become a major concern to employees and employers because of its negative impact on employee health and productivity. The objective of this study is to investigate wheth...
Back pain episodes are traditionally regarded as individual events, but this model is currently being challenged in favour of treating back pain as a long-term or lifelong condition. Back pain can be...
Studies have shown that children and adolescents with low back pain are also similarly affected when they reach adulthood, thus highlighting the importance of investigating causes of low back pain in...
A multivariate predictive model of low back pain (LBP) was developed. Following a semi-structured interview, 73 participants were assigned to dysfunctional chronic low back pain (DCLBP), functional ch...
Back pain outcomes may be improved and costs lowered through risk-stratified care, but relative performance of alternative item sets for predicting back pain outcomes has not been well characterized....
If persons at risk of developing chronic pain could be identified early in a pain episode, treatment could be tailored on the basis of risk. Responses to psychophysical tests differ in persons with ch...
