DRX-9000: Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

With 80% of Americans suffering from back pain at some point in their lives, and many of those people dealing with chronic back pain, this common affliction, if left untreated can cause unnecessary suffering and upset a person’s life at home and on the job.

Although lower-back pain is the fifth most common reason people go to a doctor, many have never consulted a professional either due to the cost or because they did not think professional care could help. While few people would like go through any type of surgery, many avoid seeking help with the belief that back surgery is the only option available to them.  Chronic low back pain is the single largest cause of lost work days and lost income, and can be devastating to those who are suffering, negatively affecting their personal and professional lives. Fortunately, there are other options.

What the DRX-9000 (Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy) can do:

DRX-9000 is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment  approved by the FDA for low back pain. For many who are suffering, this pain-free option can bring great results without surgery. It can address issues such as:

  • Herniated or Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Sciatic Leg Pain
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Post Surgical Back Pain
  • Foramenal Stenosis

Patients who are typically good candidates for this therapy meet the following criteria:

  • Pain due to herniated and bulging lumbar discs that is more than four weeks old
  • Recurrent pain from a failed back surgery that is more than six months old.
  • Persistent pain from degenerated disc not responding to four weeks of therapy.
  • Patients available for four weeks of treatment protocol.
  • Patient at least 18 years of age.

The average results of DRX-9000 (Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy):

The average patient undergoing DRX-9000 (Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy) receives great relief within just a few weeks, or eight to ten visits.

Pre- and post-treatment MRIs have shown greater-than-50% reductions in the size and extent of disc herniations after four weeks of treatment with the DRX 9000.

During Spinal Decompression Therapy patients experience the following:

Lying on a Decompression Therapy Table, patients relax as the device applies decompression to affected areas. Decompression is the elongation of the spine in a slow and gentle manner in order to alleviate pressure on the affected areas.

DRX 9000 treatment begins with a series of daily sessions for two weeks, followed by treatments less frequent sessions, as needed.  Each treatment session consists of 30-45 minutes on the DRX 9000, followed by a cold pack with electrical muscle stimulation that is applied to assist in the stabilization of the paravertebral muscles.

An upper chest harness / shoulder support is used to help distribute the applied forces evenly, as the patient is then  slowly reclined to a horizontal position. Following the physician’s orders, the therapist localizes the pain, makes any needed adjustments, and directs treatment to the proper area.

Side effects and risks of Spinal Decompression Therapy:

Most patients do not experience any side effects, although there have been some mild cases of muscle spasm for a short period of time.

DRX-9000 Spinal Decompression is totally safe and comfortable for all patients. The system has emergency stop switches for both the patient and the operator that  These switches terminate the treatment immediately, thereby avoiding any injuries.

How Spinal Decompression Therapy works:

The DRX-9000 relieves pain by enlarging the space between spinal discs, applying negative pressure which relieves compression on discs and nerves, allowing the herniated and bulging discs to eventually return to their normal positions. It is the most effect for severe cases of disc herniation, disc degeneration, arthritis, spinal stenosis, and pressure on the nerve root. In addition to helping the discs come back into place, Spinal Decompression Therapy can make them healthier over time.

Decompression is achieved by using a specific combination of spinal positioning and varying the degree and intensity of force, the key to producing this decompression is the gentle pull that is created by a logarithmic curve. When distractive forces are generated on a logarithmic curve the typical proprioceptor response is avoided – avoiding this response allows decompression to occur to the targeted area.

The high-tech features of the DRX9000 give many patients long-term relief from chronic back problems, helping them continue active, and happier, lives.
