About Spinal Decompression
Your central nervous system (CNS) consists of the brain and spinal cord. Protecting the spinal cord are vertebrae, protected in turn by discs made up of a gelatin-like substance. Functioning as a shock absorber to the bones, discs undergoe tremendous amounts of stress, often resulting in a herniation or "bulging" of the disc. This is the most common cause of lower back pain.
Another common cause is disc degeneration caused by a drying out of the disc area. Over the course of time, or through injury, dried discs will crack and induce pressure on nerves. The result is extreme muscle tension and back pain.
The DRX-9000 was created to effectively treat these conditions to help patients live a pain free life. The DRX-9000 uses state-of-the-art technology to gradually relieve neurocompression often associated with lower back pain. The process has been proven to relieve pain by enlarging disc space, reducing herniation, strengthening outer ligaments to help move herniated areas back into place, and reversing high intradiscal pressures through application of negative pressure.
The DRX-9000 protocol begins with a series of daily treatments for two weeks, followed by treatments three times a week...as needed. The usual allocated number of treatments we recommend is 20 visits to avoid the risk of reverting backwards post treatment. Each treatment consists of 30-45 minutes. Following each treatment a cold pack with electrical muscle stimulation is applied to help paravertebral muscles consolidate.
An upper chest harness/shoulder support is used to help distribute the applied forces evenly. Once in place, you are slowly reclined to a horizontal position. The DRX-9000 helps to mobilize the troubled disc segment or segments without inducing any damage to the spine.
What Results Can I Expect??
After only 3 weeks of treatment, clinical studies have shown outstanding results in relieving the debilitating pain that may be caused by bulging, herniated, degenerative or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome and many failed back surgery cases.
Pre and post treatment MRI's have shown greater than 50% reduction in size and extent of herniations after only 4 weeks of treatment with the DRX-9000. In fact, during the initial clinical study, more than 86% of patients reported relief of back pain!!
