We have helped hundreds of herniated cervical and lumbar disc patients return to more active lifestyles with the DRX-9000. Many have been able to avoid back or neck surgery as well. Sure, there are always some that do not respond favorably to decompression therapy, but they are the minority. What typically happens is patients end up a lot better than they were and are glad they did the treatment. Some have a complete resolution of symptoms.

Hand pain is very common for people that spend the majority of their day sitting at a desk in front of a computer.

When it comes to hand pain, the source of the pain is not always in the hand itself. In fact, more often than not, the source of the arm or hand pain is pinched nerves in the neck. That's right! Pinched nerves in the NECK can cause the same type of hand pain that pinched nerves in the HAND or wrist can cause (known as carpal tunnel syndrome).

Dropping a few pounds may result in positive aesthetic results, of course, but weight loss has a number of health benefits. One such benefit is decreased pressure and strain on your body's joints, like knees and ankles. This important benefit is the main reason medical offices are promoting fat loss "systems" or programs. Unfortunately, not all fat reduction systems are equally effective.

The cervical disc decompression machine we own and operate is the DRX-9000c. The DRX-9000c is fully computerized. It has a built-in biofeedback mechanism that senses the patient's response to treatment, making adjustments accordingly. The cervical decompression system is able to target a specific spinal disc in the neck, such as the C5/C6 disc. The computer adjusts the angle of pull according to which cervical disc is being treated.

Your spinal discs, which are the ligamentous pads in between the bones of the spine, have two primary components:

1. The Nucleus Pulposus, which is the gelatinous center of the disc that helps give the spine its flexibility and

2. The Annulus Fibrosis, which are the strong fibrous circular rings that contain the nucleus and attach the disc to the vertebrae.

It's great to read more good news about how chiropractic care is helping people struggling with pain, without the use of medications.

"Studies are showing that migraines are significantly reduced by chiropractic care – the lone non-drug care to impact the debilitating condition to a high degree."

One of the more common reasons a herniated disc patient seeks spinal decompression is they have been told they need low back surgery, but they are looking for a less invasive option. Spinal decompression machines are designed to treat lumbar disc bulges and herniations non-surgically. Disc decompression also may help spinal stenosis, disc degeneration, and Facet Syndrome.

The treatment process is 100% natural. The protocol is 20, one-hour sessions over a six-week period. You are on the machine for 30 minutes and then 10 minutes of muscle stimulation with ice.
