Non Surgical Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression was designed by a specialized team of top physicians and medical engineers to effectively treat chronic and severe low back pain with an effective, safe non-surgical option. This FDA-cleared procedure is gentle and comfortable…with No risks and No side effects.
What is spinal decompression therapy?
Spinal decompression is a highly advanced non-surgical treatment for people experiencing chronic neck or low back pain typically with severe pain, radiating symptoms, numbness, and tingling. These pain and symptoms can be attributed to a number of different ailments such as: degenerative disc disease, bulging disc, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, sciatica, or failed back surgery. Spinal Decompression slowly relaxes and stretches the spine, removing the downward forces of gravity and creating a vacuum that allows water, oxygen and nutrients to flow back into the discs and begin the healing process.The injured disc is located and gently separated, which allows the disc to be “pulled back in” taking pressure off the surrounding compressed nerve roots. The treatment is gentle, painless, and relaxing. Some people even fall asleep during treatment.
Whose a candidate for spinal decompression?
Those patients who are experiencing chronic, moderate to severe neck or low back pain. Patients with symptoms such as radiculopathy, radiating pain with numbness and tingling in their arms and hands; and/or buttocks and legs. Patients who have tried conventional chiropractic care, physical therapy, steroid injections, and pain pills; all with little to no relief. Patients who are considering neck or low back surgery and would like to try a safe non-surgical approach first. Patients who are tired of living with pain and want to get their life back.
The DRX9000 is the top spinal decompression unit on the market. Our unit has both separate cervical and lumbar decompression capabilities. The unit works by using very fine calibrated and high-speed computers to calculate the specific angle and forces of pull to the patient’s spine in order to help relax the patient’s paraspinal guarding muscles and maximize spinal elongation. The treatment time is approximately 30-40 minutes at which time the patient is harnessed, completely relaxed, and is provided a headset to listen to calming and relaxing music of his or her choice.
Does the Treatment Work?
The DRX9000 has been studied by doctors from Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Duke University, and Stanford; all of which research shows positive results with decreased pain and improved disc findings. Some studies have even shown pre and post MRI findings with disc re-absorption following treatment on the DRX9000. According to the American Academy of Pain Management at their Annual Conference in Tampa in September of 2007; after two weeks of treatment on the DRX9000 there was a 50% reduction in pain scores and upon completion of the entire protocol an amazing success rate of 88.9% was documented.
