If you suffer from chronic back and neck pain, you know how disruptive it can be. Most people will go to great lengths to try to find relief for the condition. The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ can give patients relief from chronic back and neck pain and allow them to resume the activities they love. The therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical.
Spinal decompression on the DRX9000™ involves the application of forces logarithmically to elongate the spine without causing the muscles that guard the spine to contract. The technique stretches the spine gently, altering the position and force of the spine. This helps remove the pressure from the spinal discs by creating an opposite or negative pressure.
The discs are the gel-like cushions between the spinal bones. The technique causes the herniated or bulging disks to retract, taking pressure off the nerves and other spinal structures. The procedure helps improve the movement of oxygen, water, and essential nutrients to the discs.
Non-surgical spinal decompression can be effective for treating back pain. A typical therapy program consists of between 12 to 20 sessions within a four to six-week period. The treatment protocol will depend on the severity of the condition. Some conditions require fewer sessions than others.
Many patients experience relief from their symptoms within the first few sessions. Most people will experience dramatic or complete pain relief on completion of the therapy program. It is important to talk to the doctor about the duration of your treatment protocol.
Patients that will benefit most from the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ may be those diagnosed with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, or facet syndrome. Spinal decompression therapy can also provide relief in patients suffering from advanced scoliosis.
Some patients may experience light side effects with this type of therapy. Mild muscular soreness during treatment may occur. The sensation would be similar to what a person might experience at the onset of a new exercise regimen. Most patients find this therapy quite comfortable and relaxing. During an average 30-minute session, most patients experience a gentle stretch in the lumbar spine and tend to fall asleep. Adjunctive therapies to spinal decompression typically include electrical stimulation and cold therapy. Exercise and/or the use of a lumbar support belt are often prescribed to support the benefits of spinal decompression therapy and improve patient compliance.
