Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is a revolutionary new technology used primarily to treat disc injuries in the neck and in the low back.
This treatment option is very safe and utilizes the DRX 9000C™ to apply distraction forces to spinal structures in a precise and graduated manner. Distraction is offset by cycles of partial relaxation.
The technique of spinal decompression therapy, that is, unloading due to distraction and positioning, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This “vacuum effect” is also known as negative intra-discal pressure.
The negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over six to eight weeks, the results are quite dramatic.
