Spinal decompression is a type of therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits including: Create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material.
The DRX9000 & DRX9000C™
Are designed to relieve pressure on the anatomical structures that cause neck and lower back pain. This non-surgical procedure was developed for the treatment of pain and disabling neck and lower back conditions caused by disc herniations, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, stenosis and posterior facet syndrome.
The DRX9000 and the DRX9000C is effective in treating chronic and acute low back and neck pain associated with herniated discs, bulging discs and degenerative disc disease allowing patients to return to a full active lifestyle.
How it works…
The bones of the spine are slowly and methodically separated using the state of the art DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Unit. While the vertebrae are separated, pressure is slowly reduced within the disc (intradiscal pressure) until a vacuum is formed. This vacuum pulls the gelatin center of the disc back inside, reducing the bulging disc or herniated disc. Substantial disc bulge reduction takes pressure off the spinal nerves and drastically reduces disability and pain. The vacuum also pulls necessary oxygen, fluid and nutrients into injured and degenerated discs allowing the healing to begin.
If you are suffering with chronic back pain, hip pain, sciatica, neck pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling we can help.
