What is Lordex?

The Lordex Program

Setting the standard of care for both acute and chronic low back pain has been the Lordex goal for more than 15 years. Developed by Dr. John Boren, and based on the principles researched at major universities and in clinical settings, Lordex relieves patients of their back pain by re-establishing functional capacity and decompressing the sensitive nerve fibers non-operatively. That is, without surgery.

By "reeducating" the nervefibers through subtle movement, patients are able to restore health to the sensory nerves; transmitting healthy signals rather than terrifying, debilitating pain. Patients suffering with herniated disks, degenerative joint disease, sciatica and facet syndromes now have this option; a treatment that has been demonstrated to be more successful in the alleviation of pain.

What does Lordex mean?

"Lord" for the Lordosis region of the spine. "Ex" for exercise. The proprietary equipment developed by Lordex took 15 years of research to become what is now known in doctors' offices across the country as the Lordex Lumbar Spine System. The system is comprised of the Lordex Decompression Unit, the RX1 Lordex Strength Restoration machine, and the therapist-assisted Lordex Stretch-Flex program.

How does Lordex work?

Lordex targets the lumbar muscles to reintroduce kinetic activity. The Lordex Decompression Unit then comfortably tractions the spinal joint, decompressing the disk and reducing pain. Unlike conventional traction that stretches the back only, the Lordex Decompression procedure aids in reconstitution and disc healing, allowing increased circulation to the damaged area.

The therapy is gentle, yet effective.

Each Lordex session is administered by a member of our clinical staff. The complete program requires 20-30 hours over a four to six week period. Our guests find the experience relaxing and painless.

The technology is advanced and recognized.

Lordex guests have been able to enjoy a clinical success rate of 86% for favorable treatment, greatly enhancing their overall quality of life.
