DRS Protocol

Treatment for Back Pain & Neck Pain

Dr. Timothy Kehrig has trained under  Fort Wayne, Indiana Chiropractor, Dr. Richard E. Busch, IIl specializing in  DRS Protocol. DRS protocol is a comprehensive combination of pain relief treatments for back pain and neck pain conditions. The DRS Protocol utilizes spinal decompression along with multiple therapies customized for each patient's unique condition.  The DRS Protocol is a safe, non-surgical, and drug-free treatment for chronic pain conditions including, but not limited to: herniated disc, bulging disc, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and facet syndrome. 

What Does the DRS Protocol™ Treat?

The DRS Protocol™ treatment has been proven most effective for involved and chronic disc conditions:

  • degenerative disc disease
  • herniated disc(s)
  • numbness and tingling of the hands/arms and legs/feet
  • sciatica
  • posterior facet syndrome
  • spinal stenosis
  • failed back and neck surgeries
  • back and neck pain of any kind

Dr. Kehrig customizes treatment for each patient’s needs, as each patient’s health and conditions are as unique as they are.

The DRS Protocol is so safe and effective that many medical doctors refer their chronic pain patients, including their senior patients, to Kehrig Family Chiropractic for treatment rather than have them face invasive procedures such as back surgery, fusion, or steroid injections along with a lifetime of addictive medications.

How Does DRS™ Work?

DRS™ ( Decompression, Reduction, and Stabilization) applies an “axial” or distractive force to injured disc levels. During treatment, discs are rehydrated when pressure within the disc is dropped from a positive to a negative promoting the diffusion, or intake, of water, oxygen, and nutrients.

Repeated pressure differential promotes retraction of a herniated nucleus pulposus (the elastic core of the intervertebral disc).

In other words, the DRS™ treatment reduces pressure inside of the disc which reduces the painful herniation and the pain from disc-related degenerative conditions. The pressure reduction results in increased blood flow to the injured area, reduction of pain, increased mobility, and tissue repair.

Studies show that DRS™ is a “front-line, non-surgical premier treatment for patients with chronic pain conditions.
