Spinal Decompression Therapy (DRX9000)
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is a revolutionary technology used primarily to treat disc injuries in the neck and low back.
It is cleared by the FDA and clinical studies have shown this break-through technology particularly helpful for those with low back pain.
Spinal Decompression using the DRX9000 is available at Montvale Health Associates to relieve patients of debilitating low back pain. This non-surgical, non-invasive, drug-free treatment has a high success rate for chronic back pain, sciatica, herniated and/or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, a relapse or failure following surgery and even facet syndromes.
The technique of spinal decompression therapy, that is, unloading pressure due to positioning, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs. This “vacuum effect” is also known as negative intra-discal pressure.
The negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac (the membrane of dura mater that surrounds the spinal cord), or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over six to eight weeks, the results are quite dramatic in their ability to provide relief.
