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 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 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.
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.
Once your case is evaluated and treatment will begin the following steps are initiated. On your first visit you will meet each of our staff and you will be instructed on what is going to happen during treatment that day, and you will also be educated 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 our staff slowly lowers you 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.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (DRX9000) is appropriate for individuals who are over the age of 18 and have persistent or recurrent pain. If you have degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, bulging discs, or have failed back surgery syndrome, you may qualify for this treatment.
Individuals who are pregnant or who suffer from particular infections or disease may not qualify for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. The best way to determine if you qualify is to meet with our doctor to discuss your condition.
The treatments typically take between 20-30 minutes and you will have these sessions for several weeks. Depending on your progress, we may decrease these sessions as the pain or condition decreases.
If you choose Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression for your condition, you may start to feel a reduction in your symptoms and pain within the first week. A more notable change is typically felt in the second week of your care plan, depending naturally on your condition.
Unfortunately there are many different causes of lower back pain, including trauma, accidents and injuries, genetic disease, and the natural aging process. Back pain is often caused by degeneration and herniation of the discs in your back.
