Benefits of Spinal Decompression for Herniated Discs

Your spine has a large impact on your overall health. A misaligned spine can cause problems throughout your entire body. Millions of Americans are dealing with back pain at any given point. The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ can give patients relief from chronic pain and allow them to resume the activities they love.


Should You Consider Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?


Most of the solutions available to treat herniated disc problems involve surgery or prescription medication.  Spinal decompression provides a safe and effective alternative.   One of the reasons you should consider spinal decompression if you suffer from chronic back pain is that it offers a drug-free, non-invasive treatment option.


What Is a Herniated Disc?


Simply put, this is a problem with one of the jelly donut-like disc cushions between the vertebrae that make up the spine. It can also be referred to as a ruptured or slipped disc. This condition occurs when the soft gel-like tissue located between the vertebrae pushes out due to a tear in the tough exterior tissue.


A herniated disc tends to irritate nearby nerves, leading to symptoms such as numbness, weakness, or pain in an arm or leg. But even though you have a herniated disc, you may not experience any or all these symptoms.


What Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?


This is a non-invasive and drug-free treatment option that can help relieve pain and promote healing. It is a motorized traction therapy designed to gently stretch the patient’s spine, relieving pressure so that the herniated material can reposition or retract.


This takes the pressure off the spinal nerves and discs, providing relief from neck and lower back pain, as well as sciatica pain. The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ is an innovative treatment option for herniated, bulging, or degenerative discs in the lumbar and neck regions. The therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical.




As people age, the discs located between their spinal bones tend to lose fluid. This causes the spine to compress and lose some protection. Spinal decompression therapy helps decompress the spine and improves nutrient exchange and blood flow to the affected area. Other benefits include:


It Is Pain-Free


The idea behind this type of therapy is to provide a non-invasive and drug-free way to relieve pain. Patients simply need to lie on a table as it moves. Furthermore, there is no recovery time.


It Makes the Spine Less Susceptible to Breakdown and Decompression


Like most people, you probably spend most of your time sitting. This can cause your spinal discs to wear down and degenerate over time. Fortunately, spinal decompression can help protect your spine.


Fast Results


In addition to being a non-invasive and drug-free treatment, spinal decompression therapy is not time-consuming. It’s possible to experience some pain relief after just one session. Compared to spinal surgery, spinal decompression therapy is much faster, much safer, and there is no recovery time associated with this form of therapy!


It Targets the Source of the Problem


Unlike medication, spinal decompression therapy does more than just mask the pain for a limited time. It provides natural pain relief by reducing the pressure on the spine and thereby relieving pressure on the nerves. Essentially, it deals with the source of the problem. Also, patients do not need to worry about side effects or addictive pain medication.
