Discover The DRX9000.

If you are suffering with chronic lower back pain or chronic neck pain, you may benefit from a surgical alternative known as non surgical decompression therapy. Discover the DRX9000.

Over time, whether there is injury or neglect, the spinal discs in our back begin to degenerate, very similar to a garden not getting water. When this happens, the discs become weak, and can tear causing a bulge or herniation.

If these disc injuries are not corrected, continued degeneration occurs until the disc becomes arthritic leading to symptoms such as back pain, leg pain, sciatica and even neuropathy.

Non Surgical Spinal Decompression using the DRX9000 works by gently distracting these injured discs so as to allow nutrients to be brought back into the disc. Once this occurs, natural healing processes can occur.

How Spinal Decompression Works.

Non Surgical Spinal Decompression works by gently decompressing the injured disc of your spine, leading to a negative pressure within the disc. The technology is quite advanced because we can target specific discs which are causing your problem.

The DRX9000 has the capability to treat only those injured discs, leaving other discs alone.

Essentially, this negative pressure creates a vacuum like effect which reduces the herniation. The reduction of the herniation leads to a reduction in pressure off the nerve root. Once this is stabilized, your back pain or leg pain symptoms will be alleviated.

Understanding The Treatment Process.

Once your case is evaluated and treatment will begin the following steps are initiated. We will discuss and educate you on what you should and should not be doing at home to help your recovery process.

When you start treatment on the DRX9000, you will be fitted with an upper and lower harness. Then, you will stand upright against the machine bed, while you are lowered to a more flatten position.

If you have trouble lying on your back, don’t worry. This position will be temporary as we provide a knee booster prior to treatment commencing.

While on the DRX9000 the specialized computer-controlled table relaxes you. Treatment takes 20-30 minutes, and your treatment plan will be customized to your individual needs and symptoms.
