Cervical Decompression in Ormond Beach, FL at Labonte Disc Institute
Cervical decompression therapy at our clinic is designed to help patients who are diagnosed with a cervical (upper spine) condition, such as a bulging or herniated disc that causes nerve compression.
Neck pain can interfere with an individual’s overall mental state and daily activities such as work, recreation and relaxation. Back pain can make sleeping difficult or even impossible, causing fatigue, irritability, and a feeling of isolation. For the vast majority of people, nack pain can be treated non-surgically.
After identifying the underlying cause of the pain, an effective treatment regimen can be identified. These conditions may often be treated non-surgically with the DRX9000.
The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine.
Simply stated, the vertebrae are the bones in your spine and the disc is the shock absorber between them. Think of a disc like a jelly donut with a thicker outer wall, and more of a gelatinous substance on the inside. When our DRX9000 spinal decompression machine pulls the bones apart, it creates a negative pressure inside of the disc, which allows for the inside of the disc, or the nuclear material, to be pulled back into the disc. This process allows for healing to occur.
The DRX9000 Spinal Decompression is a low-risk treatment and a great alternative to surgery. Decompression therapy is effective in treating difficult conditions like sciatic pain and chronic neck pain.
Causes of Cervical Nerve Compression
The spine is a complex system of vertebrae, joints, nerves and discs. As the human body ages, a natural degeneration of the spine can lead to the development of certain spine conditions, such as spinal arthritis, degenerative disc disease, herniated or bulging discs. When these often painful conditions occur, displaced disc material or an arthritic bone spur can put pressure on surrounding spinal nerves, causing pain and other symptoms.
Symptoms of Cervical Nerve Compression Include
- Tingling and impaired movement that can stay localized in the neck or radiate through the shoulders, arms and hands.
The DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Machine Available at the Labonte Disc Institute
The DRX9000 is NOT a traction machine! The DRX9000 is the only device in its field that has been researched by doctors from John Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Duke, University of California and Stanford. It is the only device in its league with pre post MRI studies by internationally renowned physicians. The DRX9000 Spinal Decompression machines are highly regarded by professionals as the most effective technology for providing lumbar and cervical spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal Decompression on the DRX9000 involves the application of forces along a treatment curve to elongate the spine without causing the muscles that guard the spine to contract. The technology required to apply spinal decompressive forces is very advanced. The DRX9000 utilizes high-speed treatment computers to calculate the spinal decompression treatment curve for each patient.
When you come in for treatment, you will first need to be cleared for general medical contraindications. Treatments are painless and without any complications and patients generally watch TV or fall asleep. Most patients notice their pain begin to subside after the first few sessions.
