For patients looking for non-invasive treatment for chronic or acute back pain, we perform a complete evaluation and often recommend spinal decompression with the DRX9000. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and clinical studies have shown that this breakthrough technology can be especially helpful for those with low back pain.
How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works
Spinal decompression changes the force and position of the spine through a series of gentle stretches. This removes pressure from the gel-like cushions located between the vertebrae of the spine, known as spinal discs. Bulging or herniated discs often retract, which removes pressure from the nerves and other structures in the spine, which in turn improves the flow of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs to enable healing.
Conditions Treated by Spinal Decompression Therapy
- Chronic Back Pain
- Disc Injuries
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Relapse or Failure of Surgery
- Facet Syndrome
What is the DRX9000?
The DRX9000 is a system that was designed to assist healthcare providers with non-surgical treatment for neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. The patient lies on a table face-up, and the machine performs a gentle stretch of the spine. Over time, the compressed areas of the spine are elongated to allow proper space for the discs and relieve pain caused by compressed nerves. Some patients report feeling immediate relief, while others feel lasting relief after several weeks of regular treatment.
